We enjoyed our two night stay in this lovely hotel. There is one room on the ground floor, a suite and two rooms on the first floor and a family unit with two rooms on the second floor. The suite is fabulous but all rooms are large and well appointed. The bathrooms are big. The dining room and a small... More

The rooms are fine - spacious and comfortable, but how they can call themselves a "Boutique Hotel" or charge the sort of prices they are charging is beyond me. We had far better experiences in hotels in Turkey a third of the price ! We were expecting something a bit special but....soiled carpets, coffee, tea and bottled water in the... More

We had a wonderful suite in this refurbished old Russian house. The staff was very courteous and allowed us a late check out. They recommended a wonderful nearby restaurant. The breakfast is ordinary; thus I have chosen not to give the hotel five stars. While the usual breads and olives were available, and the jams and honey were excellent, no... More

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
