Murat Camping

Updated 11/25/2013

Fodor's Review

Despite the rustic name (there is a small campground on the premises), this large space with an outdoor terrace on a hillside just below the Ishakpaşa Sarayı, is Doğubeyazıt's only option for a big night out. It might not be the best meal of your life, but the views of Doğubeyazıt and the surrounding mountains are commanding. You'll find the usual selection of mezes and kebabs, as well as live Turkish music most evenings along with wine, beer, and rakı.

Murat Camping Review

Murat Camping “Hotel”, promoted by Amy L. Beam is terrible. The place smells like urine and feces. It is really not a hotel but a youth hostel. The prices to stay at the “hotel” are ridiculous, around 30 to 50 EU per night! This is mostly the upcharge while booking with Amy L. Beam. Plus, you do not stay by yourself. You stay with as much as 4 people in a room ! In the city of Dogubayazit you can stay in an actual hotel with your own room

for only $30 U.S. dollars an evening. The employees look like they detest working there and usually Amy is left yelling at everyone, but they just ignore her. At night, the employees stage loud parties and cook outs near your room so you can get little sleep. The food is ridiculously expensive and almost double what you can get in the city. The only reason you would go to this place is to climb Mount Ararat. However, Amy L. Beam is running something like a fraud. Her charges is between 400 to 800 EU for the ascent up Mount Ararat. However, the normal price is around $225 dollars. When you go with Amy, the difference is a loss of around $400.00. Overall, the experience with Murat Camping and Amy L. Beam was truly terrible. I do not recommend this place for anyone.
