Aşıkoğlu Hotel & Pension

Guesthouse in Boğazkale

The friendly service sets this place apart, and the simple, spick-and-span rooms in both budget and midrange styles are just the ticket for resting your head after visiting Hattuşa, although in winter the unheated rooms get very cold. There's a shady apple garden for campers, a cosy Ottoman-style cafe-restaurant and Hittite documentaries are shown on a cinevision screen in the evening.

Set menus at the restaurant cost ₺30 and there's decent wood-fired pide for ₺10 to ₺15. If you ring ahead the hotel can organise taxi transfers from Sungurlu otogar.
