Tuna Hotel

(No website found at time of publishing) – Edirne, Turkey

How I heard of this place: My sister and brother-in-law stayed at this hotel when they visited Edirne two years ago. We had planned to stay at the Efe Hotel, only to find that they didn’t receive our reservation…and needed to find another place. To our delighted amazement, we found the Tuna Hotel just one block away. We immediately made our way down the block to make our home at Tuna.

Type of cuisine: Turkish breakfast. Plain and simple. Bread, cucumber slices, tomato slices, two types of white cheese, spam-like bologna (little rounds), hard-boiled eggs, Turkish tea and instant Nescafe.

Ambiance: In the bright white, fluorescent-lit basement level of our hotel we were greeted by our own, private Turkish breakfast buffet. Dark wooden dining sets, with matching chairs were spread apart throughout the large space, red-yellow-blue gingham-patterned tableclothes covering the nice furniture. The tiled floor, with pink runner carpets at the aisle-ways separated the five tables from each other and from the space towards the front of the establishment, complete with mini sofas, a coffee table and television set from the 1990s.

What I ordered: On my breakfast plate this morning, a hard-boiled egg, a couple slices of feta-like cheese, tomato and cucumber. I also partook of a hot cup of sweetened Çay.

What I loved: As always, the breakfast is simple, portion-controlled (despite the buffet option) and leaves you satisfied without being completely full.

Why I loved it: Simplicity. Warmth. Hospitality. Generosity. Moderation.

Cost: Included in the cost of the hotel
