We've arrived in Dogubeyazit bus station from Sanliurfa without hotel reservations. After trying hard to avoid a mid-aged man at the bus station who persistently was trying to get our custom at his hotel, we've wandered around couple of streets finding for a place to stay and it's very early in the morning.
We went in some nice-looking budget hotels to check prices, around 3 of them and price ranges from TL45 - 70, and we ended up with Hotel Isfahan, maybe because it's a bit away from the main town centre which can get crowded at night.
The lobby of the hotel looks nice but that's just it, the room is big but beds are shabby and the walls are painted in yellow-green. Our room faces a building under construction, not noisy at night though and a bit on the side is the fresh produce market where vendors are getting their goods every morning for selling.
The rooms on the street-side with balconies which aren't available during our stay probably have a decent view of Mt. Ararat.
The carpet on the floor is old. A TV with mostly turkish programs, huge bathroom space open-plan no division between everything that whenever you take a shower, water goes all over the bathroom, bring your own soaps and shampoos.
We paid TL50 for 2 people with small breakfast.
Location is about 5 minutes walk to the main pedestrian street where people congregate at night for dinner or tea at one of the restaurant lining the street with tables and chairs al-fresco.
