guvenAcross the road from Urfa's main clump of backpacker hotels and with banks and a restaurant beside it, the Güven has been in business a long time but had a refit in 2010 that has brought the decor up to date as well as cheering up the people who work here. 

Reception is at the front of the hotel with a small sitting and TV area at the back. The quietest bedrooms are at the back of the building but whether you will like them or not probably depends on your tolerance for rooms without windows. Those at the front will inevitably suffer from some traffic noise from the main road outside.

My room was well designed to make best use of the space with a big bed, a proper wardrobe and a desk with an open-fronted minibar (no alcohol) tucked under it. The TV had a big screen and was well positioned but offered only Turkish and Arabic programming. The wi-fi worked a treat.

Breakfast is on the top floor.

Thumbs up: Attractive, unflashy decor

Thumbs down: Quietest rooms lack windows
