In the old Ottoman neighborhood in an old Baltic winter house and next to a very nice modern restaurant. We spent an excellent night here. The staff were super friendly and helped us find our way through town. The breakfast lived up to the city's excellent reputation for the best kahvalti of Turkey.

This hotel, nicely decorated inside with clear and white colors, with elegance and luxury, is a surprise in the relatively austere but attractive city of Kars. The staff (Serpil at the reception) is extremely helpful (with reservations in Turkish in remote places of the country) and welcoming. The rooms are large, clear, luxurious. The hotel is located in a quiet... More

(Keep in mind that Kars is -- almost literally -- the end of the road in northeastern Turkey -- next stop the (fortified) Armenian border.) Given that, the hotel in an century-old Russian building is quite remarkable. Our room was big and clean, the breakfast was quite ample, and the staff very congenial despite their limited Englsh. (The hotel has... More

Touring Turkey with friends we needed an overnight stay in Kars to fit in with our visit to Ani. We were not disappointed with our choice of Kars Otel as it is in the perfect location in Kars. Lovely room (Aras) and friendly staff. No restaurant in house for the evening but we were recommended one to doors away which... More

I had stayed for a night at Kar's Hotel with my family. From check in to check out service was excellent. Rooms were very clean and comfy. Staff were helpful, kind. Breakfast was good but could be more various. Loved the architecture of Kar's hotel especially the balcony and garden.

This hotel is very clean and offers some top notch hospitality. We were greeted at the door with fresh tea and escorted up to our room by a bellman. The restaurant is very good serving a delicious breakfast buffet. The pool is delightful and very clean. Overall, a great place to stay.

The hotel has been very well designed, and although some of the decorations do look a little tired, our room was attractive and comfortable (though a couple of arm chairs would have been welcome) and the building as a whole is a delight to the eye. Excellent breakfast buffet, with all sorts of cheeses etc. plus eggs to order. Extremely... More

A nice, if expensive, oasis in eastern Turkey. Friendly staff and above average furnishings for the region. That said, the hotel is on a busy street with a mosque and military camp next door so it can be noisy. Ani is a great excursion out of town (and really, the only reason to come to Kars; the town itself is... More

Kars is not a warm, cheerful or welcoming town - it's worth going there for Ani but that's about the only reason you'd go to Kars. This hotel is a welcome haven after wandering around Kars and the old house has been nicely redone. The rooms are white and very simple but with everything you need. It's quite refreshing. The...

Great place for a romantic getaway in a city that doesn't have much else to offer. It is pricy but if you ever happen to want to view the sights around Kar's it's def. a place to stay. The staff was very helpful and English speaking (which doesn't happen often in smaller cities around Turkey). The restaurant is presently closed,... More
