One of the beauties of the Su Otel is that it is hidden away on a back street (map), out of the traffic bustle and nightclub noise of Bodrum. Although it’s not difficult to get to, it can be difficult to find the first time you visit it it.
From Milas-Bodrum Airport
The best way to travel from the airport to the Su Otel is by the Havaş Airport Bus. The bus takes you to the Bodrum Otogar (bus terminal: see the map below), from which you can walk to the hotel. (If you plan to rent a car, do it later from within the town, not at the airport.)
Su Otel is located only a few minutes’ stroll from the Özel Bodrum Hastanesi (Private Bodrum Hospital). You can follow signs to reach the hospital, and you’ll be near the hotel.

It’s a good idea to contact the hotel in advance for advice on parking and getting your luggage to the hotel. Or, stop at the big Shell fuel station on the right (north) side of Kıbrıs Şehitler Caddesi (map) and telephone the hotel from there to ask for guidance.
Parking is not possible on Turgutreis Caddesi or 1201 Sokak (Turgutreis Caddesi is a very narrow one-lane, one way street eastbound, with heavy traffic. It is not possible to stop on it for more than a minute to unload luggage), but there’s a pay otopark (car parking lot) on Mars Mabedi Caddesi (map) near the hotel.
Otherwise, there are several covered pay parking garages(Kapalı Otopark) near the Bodrum Otogar (bus terminal) in the center of Bodrum. It’s about a 10-minute walk from the bus terminal to the Su Otel.

Walk to Su Otel from Bodrum Waterfront
Find Gerence Sokak going inland (north) from Neyzen Tevfik Caddesi, the waterfront street around Salmakis Bay (the western of Bodrum’s two bays). Gerence Sokak starts between Neyzen Tevfik Caddesi Nos. 34 and 36. It’s about a 10-minute walk from Neyzen Tevfik Caddesi to the Su Otel. There are several small signs along the way.
Follow Gerence Sokak, which curves around to the left, then is more direct, all the way to Turgutreis Caddesi, the narrow one-lane, one-way (eastbound) street. Turn left (west), and beware the traffic on this street as you walk, looking for small “Su Otel” signs. The entrance to 1201 Sokak, the Su Otel access path is on the left (south).
