It has got the local ambient with a beautiful view. The owner makes excellent Turkish breakfast too. I would definitely go back and stay here longer
Not convenient if you are bringing a big luggage. You have to ask around for direction and the road is not meant to stroll luggage bags
The century-old house with its mixed decor from the traditional to the magic-inspired. This Magician's house was a good introduction to our Turkey vacation. It set the mood for our 2-week adventure. The location was perfect, at the edge of the old town, just a few steps away from the main drag making it a quiet place to retire. The balcony was a bonus where we had coffee in the morning and local Sirince wine at night. "Peri", who fixed our breakfast and took care of us was very warm and accommodating.
The establishment had great ambiance with staff really friendly who went out their way to make us comfortable. Superb breakfast served in cosy dining room.
Thought a little expensive but I suppose you pay due to demand as it is a very small town.
I stayed at Sihirbazin Evi for two nights in September, and it really was the most beautiful place I have ever stayed, - so full of character. The hotel is at the top of a very steep and uneven cobbled street. When the taxi dropped me off I was concerned how I was going to get my suitcase up there, but the landlady very kindly came down and met me, and we carried it up the hill between us. Sihirbazin Evi is lovely old Greek house, wood and stone and decorated throughout with lots of traditional decorations and colours. Rugs, wall hangings, mirrors, lamps, decorative fabrics, pottery. My bedroom was a good size, and had another smaller bedroom and bathroom adjoining it. There was a wood burner, rocking chairs, a table, rugs and tiled floor. The lighting was soft and cosy. The bathroom was clean and modern, plenty of hot water and towels. It was such a beautiful room and it was clear the landlady had put a lot of work into creating a really welcoming and attractive place for her guests. Breakfast took place up a staircase on the small roof terrace, and there was no set time, which I liked. This terrace offered a lovely view of part of Sirince and the hills beyond, and it was quiet and relaxing. The landlady was welcoming, professional and well mannered. Whilst she spoke no English and I spoke no Turkish we manage to communicate the essentials via Google translate on our phones. The breakfast each morning was delicious – a wide selection of fruits and vegetables (I am vegan) bread and chai. On my last day, I was allowed to keep my suitcase in my room until I left the village late afternoon. This was very much appreciated as it meant I was free to explore Sirince without having to drag my case round all day. I loved this hotel, and it was a pleasure to stay here. The landlady has created such a pretty and cosy home to share with her guests, and it really was the most beautiful place I have ever stayed.
There was only one negative point. On my second evening as I returned to the hotel quite late at night, a slim bearded bearded man was just ahead of me and held the door open for me. I went into my room for the night. However, half an hour later there was a knock at the door. It was the same man. He handed me a little bunch of flowers and told me (via a translate app on his phone) that I was beautiful. I was startled by this inappropriate behaviour just said “Thank you”. I asked if he lived here and he said yes, so I wondered if he was the landlady’s husband or other relative. Then he texted to ask if he could kiss me – to which I said no and closed the door. After that, as a single female traveller, I was concerned about him returning, especially if he lived there and probably had a spare key to my room. So I barricaded the door with furniture. He never returned, but I didn’t get much sleep.
The host was very welcoming and helping us with any request we had....tesekuller (thank you)
