I loved this place and highly recommend it, but here are potential disadvantages: Some of the rooms are very very small. Fine for young people, but something to consider. I would recommend reserving the "three bed" rooms. Also, some of the rooms are up a few flights of old stairs...great for agile guests, but might be a bit much for someone over 80 years old. The bathrooms are fine, but not fancy. It's an old building. That is the charm, and that is the nature of it. The meals are served some parts of the year in an underground cave. This is a plus if you like caves, as I do. My mother prefers upper areas.
Kirkit is a place you will remember for a long time. There are aspects of it that are magical. I was enchanted by the superb live music played every night during dinner. It was by far the best music I heard in Turkey. The food was excellent and prolific. The staff were helpful and friendly and very intersting. The other guests were themsevles fascinating. The decor is antique and fanstastic. Our room had a wonderful view of the roofs, river and town. The beds were comfortable and clean. It was extremely easy to get help setting up transportation and guides.
