Overall, very bad and dirty hotel, I advise strongly not to stay there, not even for one night. This is one of the worst and dirtiest hotel I have ever been to. The room was dirty: cigarette ash, needles, pigeon feathers on the floor. It smelled of cigarette smoke very strongly, mixed with deodorant smelling like chewing-gum. Everything looked worn... More

In our three weeks (pretty budget) journey through Turkey this was definitely the worst accommodation we found… and among the most expensive too. We got there exhausted after a long trip, so we just held our breath and kept the room - otherwise we would have just run away as we'd seen this place. The room was one of those... More

My husband and I had reserved a double bed, which to our surprise meant a room with a double bed and a twin bed. When we said that we wanted a room with 1 double bed, after much deliberation with the front desk (due to the small English spoken) we were moved to a "single room" which has 1 double... More

In Lonely Planet this Hotel was described as "Top Choice". But we had our worst room at Gungoren Hotel during our 2-week-trip all through Turkey. We made a phone-reservation and when we arrived they said that the hotel was unfortunately full. but then after some moments - magically - they gave us one of the old, shabby and not renovated...

(Note: This is a hotel, though it isn't listed under hotels - it's under "other" for some reason.) It's not a bad hotel and at -39c the heat was the most important t thing to us, and it was great. The staff was friendly enough, but you don't see any women working I. This hotel, and a woman's touch is... More

We stayed September 2013. The manager speaks English, although he may not let on. We booked and confirmed via email, but when we arrived the booking had mysteriously disappeared. A room was offered at an inflated price. Fortunately I had a copy of the email. The room was one of the better rooms ( not the shabby ones on the... More

Gungoren Hotel is as good as it gets in Kars but keep your expectations low. Smoky rooms and tattered carpets but the Management are friendly and helpful and the hotel is generally clean. There is an elevator or staff will help with bags on steps, calling a taxi or arranging a tour to Ani (our reason for visiting).. Breakfast was... More

A reasonably priced (100 TLY/night for a double when booked contacting directly the hotel) centrally located hotel with a lot of eateries and a BIM supermarket nearby, not to mention a lot of shops selling Kars honey and cheese. People working at the reception desk spoke a decent English and were generally very helpful when it came to organizing excursion... More

Read the the headline - 'nuff said. For whatsoever reason, the otherwise friendly staff at the front desk is advised to try to gyp you. Anyway, if you, dear independent traveller, have already made it to Kars, there should be no need to hand out the following piece of advice to you: HAVE A LOOK AT THE ROOM OFFERED. BEFORE... More
