Yildirim Hotel has been open since 1989, and today is managed by Selin Uçman, the granddaughter of one of the founders, and Louis Herman, her American husband. Their long term goals include making the hotel operate totally green, with zero carbon emissions, and uplifting the neighborhood with urban renewal programs.
The hotel is located in Denizli, which is the closest city to Turkey's world famous Pamukkale travertines, which are a series of snow white pools formed from the mineral deposits in the water which wells up from under the earth.
The hotel is non-smoking, and provides free breakfast, WiFi in every room, as well as brand new air-conditioners, flat screen TVs with satellite channels, and English-speaking front desk staff.
There is also a shuttle to the local airport, Çardak. Guests can visit the travertines and ancient city at Pamukkale, which is just 17km from the hotel.
