Travel: Review of OTEL TUR, Konya, Turkey

4 star for budget hotel called OTEL TUR in Konya. Address: Mevlana Caddesi Aziziye Mahallesi, Es'arizade 1 Sk. No. 9 Konya, Turkiye. Tel: 0332 351 98 25, fax: 0332 352 47 65, email:

The hotel (otel in Turkish) is situated on a small road exactly accross mevlana museum (the mosque), after OTEL CINAR. The hotel is clean, the breakfast is good, the room is equipped with real hotel facilities (bathroom inside, toilet with seat, hair dryer, tv, air cond, heater, towels, etc). These facilities are rather old and not shiny/new like in real hotels. But they are clean.

The hotel staff are really nice. Not all of them speak English, but you can always borrow their computer to type on google translator what you want to say. (I wish I had given the room cleaner a tip since he was very helpful, but I was running out of lira back then).

The hotel rate is perfect if two or three people are traveling together. The shared cost will be like 20-35 Turkish Lira per person per night. If you travel alone, you may have to pay for 40-50 Turkish Lira per night.

I really enjoyed staying there. And would definetely recomend couples or triples who need a clean well equipped place to stay without paying more than 12-15 euro per person per night.

However, we heard places outside Mevlana museum may offer cheaper price. And since there are not many more places to visit in Konya, staying outside Mevlana area can be a good idea to save money. You can easily move around using mini busses for 1-3 Turkish Lira (depending on the distance).
