The location of the hotel is very good. It is a few steps away from Hacimemis. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room, although a bit small, had everything that one needs. I easily can recommend this hotel.

And there are some super beaches a few minutes away by car. This hotel was great. We had a lovely stay and the staff were helpful and friendly. The owners were often...

Chigdem is a 12-room boutique hotel very close to the main cobbled stone street of Alacati. It is owned and operated by a husband and...

We had a very relaxing stay at Chigdem. It was in a quiet area just a five minute walk from town. The rooms were sweet and quaint, and had fantastic beds and nice bathrooms. The Turkish breakfast was off the hook delicious. Lots of personal and attentive service from the hotel manager.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
About UsCommanding a fine view of Alacati, Chigdem Hotel greets the day with the sunrise. This hotel reflects the peace and nature among the bougainvilles overlooking Alacati's famous windmills. You can start the night sipping wine on the terrace-bar watching the sunset. It was constructed by certified engineer Batacar Baysal who made a surprise and gave his wife's name to the hotel(Çiğdem) and was decorated bytheir daughter-in-law, Gunel Baysal.Crocus FlowerCrocus flower, Colchium in Latin, is originally native to Eurasia. It is plant of woodlands ; blossoming in a variety of colors, standing out to strong winds with its fragile body, reminding us to endure and the power of existence. It has 59 species, 30 of which grow in Turkey. These flowers appear in the late winter often emerging in a colony when hardly a few plants blossom in the meantime. Flower color ranges from yellow, pink and blue, to a vast array of shades.Known as one of the most expensive spices of the world, Saffron is is obtained from the stigmas of of Crocus sativus. It was used to provide with nice odour for the baths by the ancient Grek and Roman. Crocuses have the late-winter/early spring bulbs. They are the first blossoms of spring and autumn. They have a short flowering period and after a two week process they end up with their buds. They survive until the next year by their bulbs storing the nutritives. These are the bulbs sold by the florists. It means you can grow any color of these flowers in your garden.Our hotel took its name from our hostess who took her name from these flowers: CHIGDEM.Special Category HotelSpecial Category hotels contributes to the tourism and are supported by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
