In a quiet residential corner of Kas on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, the Hideaway Hotel boasts breath-taking views over the sea and the Greek island of Kastellorizo (Meis in Turkish) from its rooftop terrace and bar.
The Hideaway Hotel has 21 guest rooms on three storeys (no lift), some with two, some with three and some with four beds. All are simply but stylishly furnished, and come equipped with private bathrooms and air-conditioning.
There’s a small swimming pool on site.
A buffet breakfast is served on the terrace where the hotel owner, Mr Ahmet Ates, also whips up unforgettable night-time barbecues.
The Hideaway is only five minutes’ walk from the bus station and the town center, with its inviting array of shops and restaurants clustered around the harbor.
Just a few minutes’ walk away in the fields lie the remains of an ancient theater dating back to the days when Kas was the Antiphellos of the Lycians.
When contacting Mr Ates for a reservation don’t forget to mention TTP. Here’s why.
