Adana (AH-dah-nah, pop. 2 million) is hardly a tourist mecca: high heat and humidity in summer, swirling traffic, and limited sights keep it that way even though it has a good selection of hotels(mostly for business travelers).
It is an important transport point, however, and if you find yourself spending the night, visit the 16th-century Ulu Cami (Great Mosque), the Ethnography Museum set up in a sweet little Crusader church, the Regional Museum with lots of good Roman artifacts, and the Taş Köprü (Stone Bridge) built by Roman emperor Hadrian (117-38 AD) over the Seyhan River :
Because of its importance to business and commercial travelers, Adana has a fine selection of hotels in all price ranges.
Right by the Taş Köprü on the east bank of the Seyhan River (map) is the Adana HiltonSA Hotel. It’s right in the center and moderately priced for the value you receive. Click here to check rates and availability.
