Arsuz Otel

Hotel in İskenderun

This rambling 'olde worlde' (though really only 50 years old) hotel fronts the sea, with its own beach and 50 spacious and airy rooms. Splash out and take something over-the-top like room 28, a two-bedroom suite called Cennet (Paradise), with a huge balcony. The lobby, with its old-fashioned tiles and piano, has a vague South of France ambience, and the restaurant features local Hatay meze like oruk (spicy beef croquette) and sürk (soft cheese flavoured with dried red pepper).
