From the era of sultans and caravanserais to the present day, Turkey has always been a crossroads, a place where East meets West, where Europe comes together with the Middle East. Visitors are drawn to Turkey hotels by rich history, mesmerising culture, tantalising cuisine and blissful beaches lining the Mediterranean.
Hotels in Turkey are famous for the quality of their hospitality, and nowhere more so than in Istanbul, the atmospheric capital, where the spires of ancient mosques rise dramatically above the Bosphorus. From bustling, sometimes bewildering, bazaars to innovative modern museums and galleries and mesmerising monuments and palaces, Istanbul offers a wealth of things to do during the day, and even more come nightfall. This is a city where every season brings a new crop of achingly fashionable restaurants, bars and clubs.
Guests at hotels in Turkey have myriad motivations. Many feel the pull of the Aegean coast, where the resorts of Bodrum and Izmir present a beguiling blend of picturesque coves, historic sites and easy-going resorts. Antalya on the Mediterranean is blessed with fine beaches and a plethora of activities for outdoor enthusiasts, while Dalaman is famed for its stunning scenery, pulsating nightlife and famous mud baths at Dalyan.
