Where to Stay in Sirince? A Local Answers

Last Update:

In this post, as a local, I will review the best pensions and hotels in Sirince.

Sirince is one of the top Aegean villages to visit. Since my childhood, my parents and I have visited this village regularly. Now, I am also taking my family to this lovely town.

If you are in a hurry, here are my top recommendations.

Nisanyan Houses is the best luxury accommodation in Sirince for families and romantic nights out.

My second best option is Sirince Terrace Houses for romantic night outs. Terrace Houses provide a more rustic experience with traditional Turkish & English designs.

Let’s get into my detailed review of Luxury, Mid-Range, and Budget accommodation options in Sirince.

In my reviews, I provide links to Booking.com, Expedia, and direct links to the hotel’s homepage. So you can compare the prices to get the best deals.

1. Luxury Accommodation in Sirince (Around 100 USD per night)

1.1 Nisanyan Houses – Best Hotel For Families and Couples

Nisanyan Hotel is considered one of Turkey’s finest hotels and the hotel itself is considered a Sirince landmark to visit.

The Hotel is designed as a medium-sized boutique hotel with elegant details. Sirince can be fun, not all hotels provide amenities enough to entertain a family.

We love to dine at Nisanyan’s gourmet restaurant. The food is simply excellent.

Mujde, one of the hotel’s co-founders, also organizes cooking workshops teaching Turkish cuisine to its guests.

Many tourists visit Nisanyan Hotel’s Tower (Hodri Meydan Tower) to enjoy its magnificent view.

Nisanyan Hotels has a swimming pool and a Turkish bath where you can forget your earthly worries.

Additionally, Nisanyan Hotel is a pet-friendly hotel.


1.2 Sirince Terrace Houses – For Most Romantic Experience

Fig, Olive Clockmakers and Grapevine are the names of the cottages and houses of Sirince Terrace Houses.

This accommodation is perfect for a romantic getaway. Each house is renovated with a fusion of English and Turkish designs.

Many main publications like Lonely Planet and The Sunday Times, praised the quality that Sirince Terrace Houses offers.

While it’s a fantastic option for couples with a breathtaking rustic atmosphere, I would not recommend Sirince Terrace Houses to families, especially with small children.


2. Mid-Range Accommodation in Sirince (Around 50 USD per night)

2.1 Sihirbazın Evi – Wizard’s House – Pet-Friendly Pension

Wizard’s House is one of the best budget places to stay in Sirince.

The pension has beautiful ethnically decorated rooms, excellent services, and food. Its breakfast, which is served with locally grown food, deserves five stars.

The pension does not offer extra utilities that luxury accommodation options provide. Yet, it provides a clean and tastefully designed environment for families and single travelers.

Additionally, Wizard’s House is the second pet-friendly hotel in Sirince, along with Nisanyan Houses.


2.2 Doktorun Evi – Doctor’s House

Before I married, my favorite place in Sirince was the Doctor’s House.

My experience with Doktorun was always pleasant with nicely decorated rooms with fireplaces. It is a romantic place, especially in winter.


3. Budget Accommodation in Sirince (Less than 30 USD per night)

Sirincem Pension

Sirincem Pension is the best budget accommodation in Sirince. The pension is operated by a very warm local family.

This pension is also famous for its restaurant, where you can enjoy Turkish cuisine made with olive oil and local vegetables.

In terms of price and quality, the pension offers an excellent value. The pension has only four rooms. If you find one of them available, be sure to reserve them.


4. Best Time to Visit Sirince

The top season for Sirince is between June and September.

During these months, day tours from Izmir, Kusadası, and other tourist centers come to Sirince. Yet, the nights are relatively quiet in Sirince.

My favorite time for visiting Sirince is spring and autumn.

Especially in September and October, the weather is nice. Even if it is cold, most pension rooms have a fireplace. It is a lovely place to take a walk with your family and rekindle your love.

Sirince may feel crowded on the weekends, especially in summer. Yet, weekdays may present a more pleasant atmosphere and cheaper accommodation prices.
