alik1If you want to stay in Konya town centre in a hotel that serves alcohol then the Balıkçılar should be your choice. Prominently positioned beside a main road, it is just minutes' walk away from the shrine of the Mevlana. The local bus terminal for visits to neighbouring attractions is also close by.

The Balıkçılar was interior designed by the same person as the Rumi which means that it has a stylish modern decor that some might find a little dark but that others will love. Rooms are sensibly planned to make use of a relatively small space and have all mod cons including tea and coffee-making facilities. Bathrooms are petite but perfectly well equipped. 150 DSC05217

The top-floor breakfast room offers a view of the shrine but is designed to cater for tour groups, making it rather lacking in intimacy. On the other hand the sprawling ground-floor lounge and bar is very inviting, with plenty of relatively private corners to sit and chat. The basement sauna and hamam may or may not be functioning when you visit.

Thumbs up: Great location close to Mevlana shrine

Thumbs down: Some rooms face busy main road
