Fodor's Review

This atmospheric former caravansaray, next to Çeşme's medieval castle, is encased in stone walls and decorated in Ottoman-inspired style, with a palm-shaded courtyard and a rooftop terrace with sweeping views of the town and harbor. The courtyard restaurant offers decent Turkish cuisine. Built in 1528 during the reign of Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent (known in Turkish as Kanuni, "the law-giver") to house travelers, the caravansaray retains its historic feel.
