The namesake town of the peninsula, Bodrum has a history of more than 5,000 years and is home to some great history, like the fabulous Bodrum Castle and Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Today, the fishing village-turned-vogue resort town offers a wide selection of elegant hotels, nightlife venues and a fabulous marina crowded with boats. However, it’s still possible to find quiet among the cobbled back alleys.
Located across the street from the Milta Bodrum Marina, this classic two-story hotel has 92 rooms, all with balcony, air-conditioning, satellite LCD TV and more. There is a bistro, restaurant and bar. The spa center includes a fitness center, sauna and steam room and there is an outdoor swimming pool surrounded in gree.
