The Sea of Marmara and the North Aegean Hotels

From simple, family-run pansiyons (guesthouses) in rural Assos, to luxurious, well-established palaces in Bursa; from garden retreats in Bozcaada to Greek stone houses in Ayvalık and Bergama, the Marmara and North Aegean areas have an impressive range of lodging options. In general, however, smaller boutique hotels that make the most of the region's alluring natural beauty are what define

the best accommodations here. Many can be found in Bozcaada, Assos, and Ayvalık; breakfasts are fresh and made with herbs, fruit, and vegetables that are often sourced in the hotels' own gardens and orchards. Hotels in more rural towns like Bergama or İznik can also be your best sources for information, as local tourist offices have inconsistent opening hours and sometimes lack resources. Room rates drop significantly in the off-season, and it is always a good idea to ask for a discount in quiet periods. As many of the destinations featured here are hubs for their rural hinterlands, weekends can fill up with wedding guests and other local visitors, so phone ahead to confirm that there are rooms. Advanced bookings are crucial if you are considering visiting the Gallipoli peninsula or Çanakkale around Anzac Day, and are advisable throughout the region in summer.
