Grand Şaoğlu is a town hotel with 4 stars, a Turkish bath, a bar, and spacious and comfortable rooms. Not the ideal Hike’n Sail material, but we choose to stay here because of the proximity of the hotel to our target area for botanizing.
Eğin (Kemaliye) is famous for its historic mansions. Eğin Konağı which was once a home for a local family is now serving as a boutique hotel. Eğin Konağı is located on a slope looking down to the River Euphrates and has a heaven-like garden full of mulberry and walnut trees.
