Fodor's Expert Review Hilton Garden Inn Konya

Kışlaönü Sok. 4, Karatay, Konya, Konya, Turkey

The only international chain hotel in Konya’s touristic center has large, comfortable, well-lit rooms with contemporary style—think dark leather headboards, plum-colored velvet armchairs, and silk screen prints of tulips. There are desks with ergonomic chairs, large flat-screen TVs, and modern bathrooms. The lobby feels somewhat bland but is livened up by a small interior garden patio. Ask to be on the second floor if you want a nonsmoking room. The hotel is less than a 15-minute walk from the Mevlâna tomb complex; a tram line linking them is expected to open in 2016.

PROS

  • next to Mevlâna Cultural Center and close to sights
  • maintains reliable American-style hotel standards
  • small gym (rare in downtown Konya hotels)

CONS

  • dull views of empty lots and a cemetery
  • lacks local flavor
  • weak Internet
