“Alaçatı Chigdem Hotel is a family run business, and from the moment you arrive it’s clear - thoughtful attention to detail defines the place, such as fresh flowers throughout. Each room is brightly painted in different colours, with a bathroom to match and top amenities include air conditioning and Wifi. Organic breakfasts are complimentary and Turkish-style, including delicious homemade jam. Enjoy them al fresco by the pool, or on your private balcony. As the hotel is just a three minute walk from the centre of Alaçatı, it’s the perfect base for exploring this charming Aegean town. Lively restaurants and cafes nearby serve delicious local delicacies, as well as food markets to buy seasonal produce. Check out the town’s website for details of festivals that take place, such as the Kite Festival and Herb Festival in April.”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
It is a family owned business, and family members take care of all guests individually which makes them feel special. Breakfast is organic and fresh, and every afternoon home-made cookies are served which guests love.
What is there to do in the area?
Visit historical sites, taste local food, go to the beach and swim in the clear sea, shop, go to thermal spas, go to vineyards and taste wines, experience the Herb Festival (April). In the town local food is sold and wind-surfing is a speciality. On Saturdays there is an open market- bazaar where seasonal herbs, vegetables, fruits and clothes are sold.
What kind of breakfast do you offer?
A rich Turkish traditional country one! We use organic and fresh ingredients such as jam made by our Grandmother. Our breakfast style is unique.
Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
Lunch or dinner is served upon request for an extra charge. We can recommend many places nearby too.
Which are your most popular room types, and why?
We cannot say a specific room is most popular because every room has a different colour and even the accessories in each bathroom are different.
What facilities do you have for children and can you fit extra beds in your rooms?
We can fit extra beds according to the size of the room.
What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers?
