About the yesterday and today of the Güllü Konak (Rose Mansion):
Once a Greek village, Şirince displays a unique architecture in all of its enchanting dwellings and Güllü Konak is one of them. The first owner of the mansion, who was granted the land after World War I, had it built from its ceiling, to its doors and window frames with the best materials and with utmost pride. Later on, it has been refurbished with attention to all detail, protecting its historical texture, which you may see in the detailed workmanship that adorns the mansion in all of its nooks and crannies.
In the lovely garden, an array of roses were planted where the 'Mansion' gets its name from. In 2001, the building was registered as an historical property and is now being protected with strict guidelines by the government.
Today, Güllü Konakları, hiding more than one hundred years of history within its walls, serves you with 12 tastefully decorated rooms, where the guests may experience this beautiful village’s serenity while being pampered with today's comfort.
The 'Mansion' is located in the center of the village where you can pull your car up to the old world entrance of the property. Since the village is built on the slopes of a hill, you will experience this within the property as well which gives you many hidden corners, magnificent views on different levels and privacy even when the hotel is completely full. There are two main buildings with guest rooms and another stone one which houses the à la carte restaurant in between the two. The olive garden adjacent to the restaurant, the rose garden on the upper deck, the rooms with patios and balconies, all offer you different but equally gorgeous views of the village, gardens and the hills.
The standard of service at Güllü Konak is guided by the traditional Turkish Hospitality, along with elegant simplicity, and attention to detail. Natural tastes and scents will delight your senses throughout your days in the hotel; beginning with your entrance where you will be welcomed by the refreshing and delicious, homemade elderberry cocktail, followed by your encounter with the lavender scented linens on your very comfortable guest bed which will make you feel as if you are sleeping on a cloud…
The healing qualities of natural, olive oil based toiletries in your bathroom will relax and refresh you, while the scrumptious local cuisine made with the freshest ingredients will surely delight your taste buds.
