I staid in temel 1 and it was a very good experience. Maybe temel 2 is different, I'm not sure about this, but prices are different so.... We went before to another hotel advised by lonely planet especially for women and the pillowcases smelt very bad. So we went in temel 2 where we found a great service, people friendly... More

We stayed in Temel 2 and had our worst experience in budget hotels in Turkey. The first room we were shown smelt really badly of drains the next one wasn't too bad. Water was tepid at best and then only at night. Room was cold though blankets kept us warm. We had the most amazing hassle with prices - we... More

We stayed in hotel temel 2, the annex across the street. It was 40 TL per night for a double room (twin beds). The beds, rooms, and bathrooms are clean for a budget hotel (although the carpets are decor is drab). The man who runs it is kind and accommodating. He often brought us tea, and walked all over town... More

My travel partner and I stayed at Temel for 2 nights. I would say that our experience at the hotel was terrible as the only good things about it were its central location and relatively cheap price. We paid 50TL/night which I would say is on the lower end of scale. In return for the cheap pricing, however, we had... More

I have been at Temel for 2 nights. In this case you really get what you pay for. The rate is 35TL/night and is pretty convenient for what it offers. Ratio price/quality/service quite good. The hotel is centrally located and the staff quite available (even if the lack of English could complicate things). My room was old and had a... More

A nice, yellow and blue painted room welcomed us in wonderful and unforgettable Kars. Father&son, quite pictoresque but always extremely nice and professional, run this simple but comfortable place. Good breakfast (with the lovely Kars honey) and a lot of nice little crafts shops in the street. Kars is definitely the most adorable town I've stayed in during my long... More

I would have given this hotel a higher rating except for the unwanting groping. The old man who runs the place appeared EXTREMELY friendly and grandfatherly at first and then he tried to hug/grop my girlfriend when she was alone in the elevator. My gf pushed him away and was very offended. I would definitely not recommend this place if... More

It's got a great location and the bedroom itself is a cheery yellow and blue mix. My only gripe is that the bathroom (accurate photo from previous reviewer) doesn't have a shower curtain so you ended up soaking the whole bathroom. We also had slightly sporadic hot water which the management did their best to fix. In the Rough Guide,... More

We picked this hotel when the Gungoren was full with a Dutch tour group. When you are looking for it its easy to find but the entrance is tucked away round the side. reception spoke impeccable English and was very helpful. He supplied advice on how to get to ANI. There was an older man (clearly the owner or something... More
