If you always say "I'm up for an authentic experience", I have just the accommodation recommendation you need, this time from Gaziantep: @anadoluevleri
Gaziantep, which has been one of the trade centers of civilizations for centuries due to its location on the historical Silk Road, has successfully stood out among the gastronomy spots of our country in recent years. Now, if I ask anyone, the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to Gaziantep is its delicious local flavors, crispy baklava
and delicious kebabs. If you are thinking of escaping somewhere for 3-5 days, so that you can enjoy history, flavor and culture, Gaziantep guide is at your feet!
First of all, I recommend accommodation: @anadoluevleri is located on one of the streets of Gaziantep that smells of history with its 15 carefully decorated rooms. This is an exquisite 180-year-old stone mansion. It promises a beautiful experience with its rooms that take us on a time travel in Anatolia, the large courtyard where who knows who spent their lives, and the corners that carry the experiences of Gaziantep. When you open the outer door and enter the courtyard of the mansion, the serenity that will break away from the noise of the city welcomes you first. The rooms of the facility, each with a different ambiance, vary between 16-55 m2. I think it's a privilege to say "hello" to the day in the high-ceilinged rooms, which are flooded with natural light every day. So get ready to witness a few centuries of history in each room!
Breakfast's relation with happiness becomes more meaningful when you sit at the tables in Gaziantep. While the local eggplant & fried peppers take their place on the breakfast table every morning, different local flavors are accompanied by products such as cheese, pastry, fried potatoes, zahter. An absolutely magnificent table awaits you every morning. At 17.00, free tea service is available. Special Mardin Syriac wine is served on request.
The facility accepts pets.
2 rooms are suitable for disabled people.
Child policy Children up to 7 years old free of charge.
Gaziantep Oguzeli Airport is 15 km away.
Evliya Çelebi summarized Gaziantep very well in his time: "This is the City of Ayıntab-ı Cihandır with its large province, eye-catching structures, goods sought everywhere, many hamlets, abundance and fertility, endless food and drink springs and rivers." (City of the World's Pupil)
Food & Drink:
Considering the abundance of food & beverage venues in Antep, months will not be enough to try, let alone 3-4 days. Therefore, my recommendation for an accelerated Gaziantep tour: İmam Çağdaş, Metanet Meat Restaurant, Ciğerci Mustafa, Gaziantep Culinary Arts Center, Kebapçı Halil Usta. For dessert: Güllüoğlu, Katmerci Zekeriya Usta, Zeki İnal. Tahmis Kahvesi for tiredness coffee.
Places to visit:
Zeugma Museum, Panaroma War Museum, Archeology Museum, Culinary Museum, Coppersmith Bazaar, Bey Quarter, Rumkale, Zeugma Ancient City, Nizip Belkız Ancient City.
Don't Return Without Doing!
Don't say goodbye to Gaziantep without bathing in one of the famous baths of Antep, chasing delicious flavors, queuing for beyran soup in the morning, and buying gifts for your loved ones from Zincirli Bedesten.
If you love chasing gourmet flavors, don't forget to buy a ticket to Gaziantep, one of the most beautiful cities of Anatolia, the cradle of both history and cultural heritage!
