The best budget deal in Bergama occupies two restored 19th-century Greek houses in the heart of the old town, with a view of the Red Basilica from the rooftop dining terrace. Rooms have wood floors, and some have private sitting areas and balconies; one has four beds. A generous breakfast buffet is offered (7 TL), and there's a do-it-yourself laundry (extra charge), a guest kitchenette, and a book exchange. The friendly proprietor, Ersin, and his wife, a teacher at a nearby
school, also freely dispense travel advice.
