The “Erdoba Mansions” are a boutique hotel in a growing collection of restored buildings grouped just south of the post office (postane) on the main street. The finest house, down several levels of steps, has rooms that look out over the magnificent panorama of the Mesopotamian Plain. The lounge in the main building on the high street is covered in intricate stone carving—it’s a great place to relax over a beer. Bedroom décordoesn’t always live up to the splendor of the buildings.
East of the post office a restored caravanserai has been converted into a boutique hotel with attractively decorated bedrooms and public areas. The on-site restaurant offers a fairly limited menu when no tour groups are expected.

The latest boutique hotel to open in Mardin, the Tatlidere is in a beautifully restored mansion with attractively decorated rooms and fine views over the Mesopotamian Plain. It’s close to the market, so white donkeys pass by at regular intervals.
