Kitap Evi is used to be a bookstore and cafe. Now it is turned to a Hotel in line with the demands. Each of the rooms has a different characteristic and position… Sometimes the warmth of a fireplace, sometimes the shade of a magnolia, sometimes the joy of Turkish Bath that reminds you that you’re in Bursa… 
Some rooms overlook the city spreading on the mountain foot; Ulu Cami, Green Tomb, Emirsultan, Yıldırım Külliyesi, historical hanlar area and Covered Bazaar… Some, the tranquil garden with its Ottoman style fountain, pond and colourful
flowers. Historical Pınarbaşı spring ran through the house once upon a time… 
It’s only in tales now. To remind you good old days, all the bathrooms are decorated individually. 
Some have bathtub. We don’t have thermal springs but you can enjoy hamam experience in two of our rooms. One of these rooms is private while the other is designed for common use. You can also get a massage. 
And Kitap Evi Restaurant is still the most preferred one in town with its rich cuisine and distinctive service.
Breakfast and five o’clock tea is served specially for the guests. In the garden in summer, by the fireplace in winter… You can find many kind of books. You can even meet the writer and have a chat. Books will keep you company in every corner of the house. We wanted our hotel to be not only a place to stay but also a place of special memories. Surely, you will see Bursa in a different point of view from Kitap Evi Hotel.
Hope you will leave with good memories of the days you spend with us in Kitap Evi…
Welcome...
