Liman Hotel - Gumusluk
Liman Hotel Gümüslük - Three nights
What a location, a small boutique hotel right in the heart of Gumusluk on the Bodrum Peninsula with stunning views of the Aegean Sea with small fishing village vibes; make sure you stay for more than one night!
The team and Yasemin & Özcan, your hosts are very warm and welcoming; they helped us organise a taxi from our previous Airbnb and helped with getting our washing done. The rooms are spotlessly clean too.
Liman Hotel has recently been renovated and is very modern, stylish and clean. The stand out is its location, right in the heart of Gumusluk with simply beautiful views of the Aegean Sea and port.
We stayed three days and fell into the fishing village vibe—early morning coffees from the excellent coffee shop Fonda Gümüşlük directly underneath Liman Hotel. Make sure you book a sea view room; you'll be blessed with a lovely balcony that is large enough for two people to sit, enjoy a wine or coffee and enjoy the crystal clear blue sea, sunset, and all the street life as the owners of each restaurant tempt guests with the latest catch of the day.
Unfortunately, we skipped breakfast each day simply because of the filling dinners during our stay. We do recommend Karafaki and Karafaki Erhan Usta, both exceptional seafood restaurants.
We noticed most people only stay one night; however, visiting longer gives you those unique experiences of exploring this little gem without the crowds; a simple smile and a wave, and you're one of the locals by the end of your stay.
While the room may be small, the location, style, view and quality of linen make up for any concerns about room size, and we were very comfortable during our stay.
Liman Hotel is very affordable, especially during shoulder season, the best time to visit before the crowds arrive.
