Overpriced, tired, crampy but still a good feelingPosted Dec 12, 2017 on Hotels
Nice concept, nice people. But room is not comfortable, and a bit worn down. Still a good option as compared to run of the mill known brands and would stay there again only if i had enough space to sit in the toilet. Perhaps another room. Overall definitely over-priced but not too over-done

An oasis at the heart of the cityPosted Nov 26, 2017
The hotel is located at the heart of the city. Major attractions are within the walking distance. The staff is exceptionally friendly and nice. They did not miss any opportunity to keep my little daughter happy. The building is very well decorated.
A nice hotel only minutes from the heart of BursaPosted Nov 15, 2017 on Hotels
We spent two nights at the Kitapevi in Bursa. We were quite pleased with the hotel, its restaurant, and its location. The hotel staff were welcoming and quite helpful. The hotel restaurant was also quite good. Parking is a problem in Bursa. Even though I was prepared to find municipal parking, the hotel helped me find a nearby place to park.

Beautiful hotel in a great cityPosted Jul 17, 2016
Lovely old hotel on the city wall. Easy walking to center of the city. Bursa is also a very beautiful leafy green city with an interesting history and beautiful historic buildings. Hotel staff were so helpful with bookings, a free transfer to the Istanbul ferry, local information and all very friendly.

the owners and staff are very nice and friendly there. They offer you pickups from and to the ferry dock which saves you a lot of troubles trying to find the place. My hotel room is classy and comfortable and the garden of the hotel is really pretty and relaxing. I love the lady owner cause she is such a fun person to talk to!

Very good hotel- except for one roomPosted Jun 1, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel is in a beautiful and central area of Bursa. The hotel did provide free pickup from Mudanya, where we arrived from Istanbul by fast ferry. My reservation was for 4 nights. Two of which were at room No. 4, which is on the same floor as the reception desk. I felt little to no privacy as the room is so close to the reception area (you can see the reception desk from your bed if the door is open) and the windows are so close to the street level so a passerby can easily see what's going on inside with little effort. I had several problems with the sink (not draining or leaking) in the bathroom. I didn't like the room and requested to change it, which happened 1 night later. The next room I got was No. 6 which was right next to the old one. This room felt like it's almost at a different hotel. It's the same grade but is much nicer. With a bit more privacy and a much better bathroom, we were feeling very comfortable. The room overlooks the garden. The hotel serves an excellent breakfast. It has a very nice garden, the jasmine aroma and the birds singing there were things we'll always remember. I would like to extend my thanks to Mr Talaat and Ms Toba - I'm sorry if I misspelled the names - for their hospitality and customer service. They are very courteous and friendly and we are grateful for their help. PS: the hotel has a suite upstairs that's REALLY nice, has probably one of the best views of Bursa and a beautiful and spacious balcony decorated with nice plants.

Lovely Boutique HotelPosted Mar 30, 2016
Pros: Comforable beds and way above average plated breakfast.
Location: Great location on the walls of the castle. Walking distance to the bazaar and the Ulu Cami. Very close to the nearby park and lookout point.
Such attention to detail at the Kitap Evi. The rooms are flawlessly decorated, the linens are clean and soft and the mattresses feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. We have traveled all over Turkey and the majority of hotels we stay at (no matter how many stars) have hard-as-rock mattresses. We stayed in a Junior Suite at the Kitap Evi. The hotel is situated on the walls of the old castle with a wonderful view of the Uludag and the city itself. It was quite at night which is a huge huge plus. We were running late from spending too much time at a hamam on the day of our departure and they gave us late checkout as well as a lovely late breakfast. We look forward to staying here again.
