Tips for Choosing the Right Type of Accommodation

When going to Turkey, many travelers would go for the triangle – Istanbul, Ephesus, and Cappadocia. It is true that when you visit these wonders, you will be treated with an overwhelming experience of culture, history and natural beauty. However, you are missing one remarkable place  – Fethiye.

Fethiye is a port city in the Aegean region of Turkey. It has an excellent marina and it is popular for its good nightlife. It also offers superb inland countryside and museum tours. When you visit Fethiye, you will find sarcophaguses in the streets, which is not creepy at all but a marvel. It is indeed an interesting place to see and experience.

As soon as you decided to visit Fethiye, you will be pleasantly surprised by the dizzying array of accommodation choices. It is easy to get lost in the sea of accommodation choices but if you remember what type of traveler you are, you can easily find the right accommodation. Here are some tips for choosing the right type of accommodation:


When you visit Fethiye or any other part of Turkey, the most obvious accommodation choice is a hotel. Most hotels here are either run by a family or by large hotel chains. Essentially, your budget will determine the room that you will stay in.

If you want to make the most out of your hotel stay, you should look for a hotel that offers breakfast. Do not worry because the front desk personnel is able to speak English. For the check-ins, they are routinely at noon or by 2 PM.

You have to remember though that in Turkey, there is no official star rating system for hotels. This means that your options can go to extremes. However, the latest trend is for hotels providing all-inclusive packages. At the end of the day, it will allow you to pay for the length of stay together with foods and drinks.
