TURKEY 2019: GENERAL ACCOMMODATION INFORMATION
Hotel prices are listed in Turkish lira, euros, or U.S. dollars. Discounts are often available if you pay in cash or book ahead on-line. Hotels usually offer their best rates on-line.
Pansiyons are a better option than one-star hotels. Most are family-run establishments offering good-value accommodation.
The price of the room usually includes breakfast. Coastal hotels and holiday villages offer half-board.
VAT (known in Turkish as KDV) is usually included in the price of a room.
Small Boutique Hotels might be a useful source.
Turkey has "Special Class" hotels. These are considered to be establishments that meet high standards of hospitality and service. Even if listed as a pansioyon, the comfort level and food will be first-rate.
Hostel World is an international booking portal with a good listing of Turkish hostels.
