Where to stay in Bodrum City

The expansive area of Bodrum City and its seaside coast offer much in the way of accommodations--at any price point. The city's main attraction, the castle, seems to yield budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses in the immediate area; expect dense crowds enjoying the animated nightlife here. An array of four-star hotels and resorts hug the curves of the coastline and continue farther west of the city core. If you prefer more luxurious lodging, seek out the handful of five-star resorts located slightly inland and a little bit southeast of the city core.
