Originally an elegant townhouse built in 1874 for the wealthy Comondo family, the Adahan DeComondo Pera has been expertly restored to look as good as it did back then. The hotel’s communal areas are adorned with elegant murals splashed across the walls and ceilings, while the fresh, modern rooms offer a contemporary counterpunch. Resting in Istanbul’s Beyoglu district, the hotel is close to some of the city’s best restaurants and nightlife.
Slap bang in the centre of Canakkale and overlooking the glittering waters of the Dardanelles Strait, the Doubletree by Hilton is comfortable and classy in equal measure. You’re not far from some of the city’s main sights like the Archaeological Museum, Cimenlik Kalesi and the Mirrored Bazaar. The hotel offers plenty of relaxation, too, with indoor and outdoor pools and a traditional Turkish hammam.
Like a rustic village hidden away on Mount Ida, Ida Blue is Turkish countryside living at its most idyllic. Spread across a trio of Greek stone houses, each of Ida Blue’s nine rooms are named after herbs grown in the hotel’s garden and used in its farm-to-fork cuisine. Slow living permeates every facet of your stay and Ida Blue’s excellent range of guided range offer a charming way to discover the surrounding region, from Jeep safaris around Mount Ida to exploring the history of olive oil on guided nature walks.
Snagging a serene spot over the glittering Aegean Sea, La Vista Boutique Hotel & Spa is one of the best places to base yourself in the popular coastal resort of Kusadasi. It's tricky to find somewhere in Kusadasi that feels blissfully unaware of the lively hubbub around it but, dressed all in white and with fewer than forty rooms, La Vista manages it with aplomb. Inside, a glamorous Provençal design and French Regency-style furniture await you in each of the rooms, all of which face outwards for those stupendous sea views.
