Where to Stay

From the bustling streets of historic Istanbul, the tranquil beaches of Antalya, to the unique beauty of Cappadocia and the Aegean charm of Bodrum, here's a handy guide to some of the best places to stay in Turkey.

For a family holiday

Istanbul with its parks, child-friendly museums and palaces is an exhilarating city for a family holiday. In Antalya, kids can have endless fun in water parks, explore ancient ruins and relax on beautiful beaches.

For a couples holiday

Relish a romantic stroll in Istanbul's Ortakoy neighbourhood, view the spectacular sunset at Maiden's Tower or savour a dreamy hot-air balloon ride amidst the unique landscapes of Cappadocia.

For a holiday with friends

When it comes to a holiday with friends, Istanbul's vibrant nightlife, Izmir's beachside parties and Antalya's adventurous water sports can offer thrills for all sorts of friend groups.

When to Visit

Turkey experiences a diverse climate – coastal regions enjoy mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers, while inland areas can be much colder in winter and extremely hot in summer. April to May and September to mid-November are considered the best times to visit due to moderate temperatures.

The high season from June to August sees throngs of tourists, but it's a great time for coastal holiday destinations like Antalya and Bodrum. On the contrary, Ankara and the central areas can get very hot, whilst Southeastern Anatolia is best visited outside of winter due to cold temperatures and occasionally snow.
