Lonely Planet review
This island pension is run by an old fishing clan, who also run the neighbouring Halikarnas restaurant on the lakefront. The nine rooms are rather dear by local standards, but they are spacious and modern, having been renovated in 2014 with new beds and mattresses. There is a roof terrace, and homemade börek features in the lakeside breakfast.
Our independent authors have visited Choo Choo Pension and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Eğirdir.
