Kale's Homestay

I was made very welcome and felt at home. The property is in the centre of the old town, budget price, clean, and convenient, and the owner is very hospitable and friendly.
The only drawback I would mention is that the rooms are in a basement flat, with windows at pavement level.

About Kale's Homestay

Private accommodation in the Kaleiçi, the old town of Antalya, with 3 guest rooms, community kitchen, -bathroom, -toilet, -living/dining room, a huge garden (with barbecue) and sea view from the roof. The new home stay is in the first floor of my house, downstairs id my laundry and my room. The rooms were designed by Turkish artist and can still change :-) There is strong WIFI for free. In the kitchen you find a large fridge, which you can use as well as the pots, pans and the dishes for cooking. You don't need to eat all the time outside:-) Maybe we can cook sometimes together. I love people from all cultures and those, who want to tell me about their countries. You can wash your clothes (for cheap money) in my laundry just around the corner. I will try to give give you a lot of tips about Antalya and its narrow environment and also to its events, sites and services.

You are welcome!

Check-in time is between 2pm and 11pm, but for sure we will arrange an arrival time before. Just come to my laundry, where I'm working all day long. I will send you also a detailed description, how you find my homestay from the airport, the bus station, by taxi or by car.

House Rules
The joint use of the kitchen is allowed. You can use existing kitchen utensils, which you clean after using again, please. If you use existing groceries, please replace them. I do not charge extra for cooking, when it is within moderate limits, but I take the liberty to charge extra in exceptional cases for use of electricity and gas, e.g. for lavish meals or invitation of guests.... My homestay doesn't employ any cleaning person. Please help me to keep the flat clean.

It is absolutely forbidden to wash your laundry in my home. First of all I have a laundry just around the corner, where you can wash also small amounts with a quick program for cheap money, second it is not allowed to dry laundry in the basement flat (risk of mold!) and third handwash generates extra costs for electricity and water, which can't be included in this humble renting price .

Please help to safe electricity (which is extremely expensive in Turkey), e.g. by closing the lights, and please don't use air condition when you don't need it.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I was made very welcome and felt at home. The property is in the centre of the old town, budget price, clean, and convenient, and the owner is very hospitable and friendly.
The only drawback I would mention is that the rooms are in a basement flat, with windows at pavement level. It was a bit disconcerting at first seeing constant 'pavement life' at ankle level, and having cars parking and driving past outside the window. It was also rather noisy at night with windows open - take ear plugs! However the windows have continental style metal grills over them so there is no security issue, and I soon got used to it.
I would also advise taking a clear map with the location marked (no 16, Kurtulus Street, near Alaadin Mosque, in Kaleici) and practice your Turkish pronunciation of the directions. I arrived from the airport at 11 pm and the taxi driver and locals had difficulty finding it. The street names were hard to find in the dark, and the notice 'Kale's Homestay' was in a basement window hidden behind a parked car. However a friendly neighbour helped out once we arrived in the street.
Great if you are looking for budget accommodation and a down-to-earth and warm welcome.
