Kar's Otel should be classified as 3/3.5-star, & it charges a rate similar to Sydney, London, New York -- and much more than Ankara & Istanbul. My room was small but functional and comfortable, with good design now looking down-at-heel. It did not contain the amenities one expects: fridge, iron, safe, tissues, bathrobe, in-room welcome & instructions. (The TV instructions... More

A large group of us stayed in the Kars Otel in April for a few days while we explored the town and region. We loved it so much we all stayed an extra night. The hotel is in a pretty old building in the town that has been tastefully restored, the rooms were all very comfortable, the breakfasts were excellent... More

We had visited Kars around 3 years ago and stayed in a different hotel. But we had seen Kar's Otel from a distance and we had liked the building a lot. That's why we have chosen it to stay during our second visit to Kars and we loved it: it was a memorable stay. The staff was very helpful from... More

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
