built when bus tours still regularly
stopped in Bergama for the night. Its
prospects were good. A large 1970s
motel-style building on two floors,
it anticipated both tour groups and
Today it hosts mostly individual motorists.
Its guest rooms are
comfortable enough (though hardly fancy),
with balconies, private baths with
shower and hair dryer, and Wifi

is made by a travel
agency, you may
have a better chance of getting a renovated
