This hotel is located about 15 minutes from shops and restaurants. We stayed in Room 317 which had a view of the very large park close by. The room was very nice, but we never did get hot water. There was no WIFi or air conditioning. You could have a beer downstairs in the lobby. The buffet was very good.... More

We came here on a group tour, and previous reviewers had said it was the worst hotel of the tour. Indeed it was, but for this un-touristed region I didn't expect luxury, so it wasn't that bad. It was clean but somewhat tired looking, and the frugal hall-lights that automatically turned on and off gave it a dark, somewhat creepy... More

Modern, clean but colourless hotel. Ok for an overnight. Parking in front. Situated at the edge of this small town at one end of its high street. Take a stroll to feel the local atmosphere. About 50 minutes drive to ANI - once the capital of Armenia which lies across the adjacent river - now totally destroyed apart from a... More

Room okay, hotel had a "tired" feel to it. We visited in August and I suspect Kars has a more active tourist period in the winter. A good base to see the incredible city of Ani. It is a part of Turkey which warrants attention.

I stayed in room 107 for 2 nights in mid-May. The room was quite small, but for one person it was fine. It appeared that all of the standard rooms were basically the same. There were two twin beds, which were comfortable and clean. However, I thought that the pillows were way too large and I ended up using a... More

I was there for 2 nights. It is a very simple hotel. Nothing special. They have warm water, the breakfast and the dinner is very good. The rooms are very clean but typical Turkish you hear everything what the next room does specially in the bathroom. There are other authentic hotels in Kars which they use the buildings from the...

Kars like much of eastern Turkey is still getting used to having tourists so the hotel choices are limited. Reading the existing reviews before we travelled in October was a bit unsettling. We were traveling with a small tour (OAT) so had no choice in accommodations. The Sim-Er is in fact much better than existing reviews had led me to... More

We stayed here for two nights so we could visit Ani. I'm not sure how many of the rooms have been renovated - but we had one on the 2nd floor. The renovated room had a lovely bathroom. The shower would have been even better if the hot water service was reliable. But we had to keep testing the 'hot'... More
