Read more about this Hotel


The Karia Princess Hotel is the premiere luxury hotel in downtown Bodrum. A white-washed stone building enclosing a lush garden and quietly located in the heart of the old city, only a stroll away from the busy Bodrum marina, the harbour boulevard, the shopping and entertainment district and the landmark castle of St. Peter, the Karia Princess is an oasis of tranquillity in an urban environment abounding in attractions and diversions.

Inspired by traditional European luxury hotels, the Karia Princess exhibits an atmosphere of subdued elegance, graceful informality, and personal service. Whether dining in its elegant Sera restaurant, swimming in the sparkling water of its adjacent pool, relaxing at the pool side bar or exploring the hotel’s centre piece and place of special pride, its exotic garden, featuring a masterfully designed arrangement of tropical and subtropical plants from all across the globe, the Karia Princess is a unique fusion of traditional luxury, classic beauty and modern comfort.

Since its opening in 1990, the Karia Princess has been owned by the Imre family. Over the years, family members have furnished the hotel with many original pieces of art, regional carpets, furniture, crafts and antiques to create an unforgettable experience for its discerning guest.

Free wireless internet access is available throughout the hotel, and in the lobby a laptop stands at the disposal of our guests.

Distance from Airport

The distance from the airport to the hotel is 32 kilometres, and the transfer time, by bus or taxi, is about 30 minutes.


The hotel has 60 elegant and spacious rooms (of 25 sq. meters), each with its private balcony (of 7 sq. meters). Each room, tastefully decorated in soft colours, floral patterns and fabrics, provides for ample closet space, is furnished with a double bed - which can be converted into separate single beds - and features all modern amenities such as a mini-bar, central air-conditioning, direct dialling phones, satellite TV, and wireless internet access. The bathrooms, equipped with shower/bath, bidet and hair dryer, are all clad in marble. Our much-treasured balconies framed by an arch and featuring traditional Bodrumian stonemasonry, offer perfect privacy and seclusion to our guests.

All rooms offer easy access to our guests with special needs.

For our guests requiring extra space, the hotel offers also 8 rooms with a connecting living room. The comfortable living room sofas can be converted into additional beds.

Food & Drink

Sera Restaurant

Whether seated by the sparkling pool, along the lush garden, or in the hotel’s elegant octagonal Sera dining room with its high ceiling supported by massive wooden beams and furnished with antique mirrors and a huge custom made Dutch chandelier, our restaurant provides the perfect setting for enjoying our culinary delights. (“Sera” means orangery or conservatory, referring to the all-around view from the dining room of the outside garden and pool.)

Apart from our a la carte menu, our restaurant is particularly proud of its sumptuous open buffet featuring a great variety of Turkish-Aegean specialties, which will delight especially - but by no means only - our vegetarian guests.

If you prefer to eat in the privacy of your room, the restaurant also offers around-the-clock room service.

Rooftop Bar

Located on the hotel’s upper lobby, the rooftop bar overlooks the hotel’s lush garden and offers a magnificent view of the town.

Pool Bar

Conjoining the pool area and the hotel garden, the shaded pool bar is the perfect place for having a drink and enjoying some snacks or a light meal.

Sports & Entertainment

Guests can use the hotel swimming pool, which also have a children's section. The hotel provides sun loungers and parasols, while more active guests can use the hotel's 70m² gym with the latest modern equipment and work-out options including cardiovascular training, weight training, aerobics and step. For less athletic and strenuous activities, guests might enjoy a massage treatment or relax in the hamam and sauna on the hotel's lower-level. Alternatively guests can engage their brains using the giant outdoor chess board or play a game of table tennis or pool. There is also a golf course 15 minutes away by foot from the hotel.

This family-friendly city hotel is located in the heart of Bodrum, a town in the south west corner of Turkey. Bodrum uniquely combines elements of ancient history with the serene Aegean lifestyle and the fast pace of the new millennium. Nestled right in the centre of this fascinating town, the hotel offers its guests the advantages of staying at a resort in an urban environment and all the amenities and attractions which comes with it.
