The Crater Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Tatvan
Reviewed 19 July 2017 via mobile

We stayed in Tatvan for one night en route back from our Caucasus trip. It's a part of Turkey that few overseas tourists visit. Crater Hotel is a recent addition to Tatvan's accommodation offering. The owner has done his best. The rooms are stylish & comfortable - the roof top bar and restaurant has great views of the lake and Mt Nemrut behind. The staff at the hotel are extremely helpful and really welcoming. As for location step outside the door walk down the pedestrianised street and get to know local life. You can reach the lake itself within an easy 10 minute stroll. We had a large Toyota truck and we were allocated a free parking space. There is a hamam nearby which might be worth exploring. And definitely make time to drive up the mountain and see the Crater Lakes.

Very central in town, on main street but enter from lane behind.
Modern; spacious clean suite, great room rate.
Breakfast on 8th floor with splendid view of mountains & lake, which the town otherwise kinda turns its back on.
Staff have very limited English, tho better than my Turkish.

Seems silly to charge for water & coffee in room, just add a € to the room rate guys!

We had a great time at this brand new hotel in Tatvan. The hotel is very well located, near a shopping center with restaurants and stores. The service and hospitality for my whole family was first class and this was quite a surprise as we didn't expect to find these standards of service in this part of Turkey. As a family of four, we got two very comfortable and interconnected rooms.

A new hotel with modern, clean-cut furnishing. Room comes with bathrobe, slippers and toiletries. Air con, heater and Internet are reliable and work perfectly well. Bed, pillow and comforter are extremely comfortable. Helpful and approachable staff. Good location. Definitely a hotel I'd recommend. Highly value for money.
