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

The hotel is dated and tired and the room was very small. It was cold that night and the room was also cold. But there was an additional blanket in the closet. I'm not sure there are many of hotels to chose from in this town. We stayed there as part of a small travel group. It was okay because... More

A lot of things have changed since Diana Darke passed here in the 50's, and even since I passed there for the 1rst time in 1986. Besides a wonderful, beautiful and expensive boutique hotel I'm afraid that Sim-Er will be your best choice in this remote town in the north east of Anatolia. The hotel has been renovated during the... More
