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

Stayed one night in a rather small room with twin beds, was glad it was only me - doubt two people could have copped. Even so was clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom had recently been updated and I was glad to see a stand alone shower instead of the shower over the bath that many Turkish hotels... More
