Positives: Breakfast was fair enough. Negatives: Beds and sheet were dirty and old, they had stains on them. Room had no sound isolation. Room smelled funny. People were smoking indoors and also there was ashtray at the room. There was noice in the middle of the night. Bathroom has no shower cover, when you take a shower everywhere gets wet.... More

Had a quick one night stay. Very clean, updated, comfortable, spacious room. Only suggestion for our room is to put a fan in the bathroom. Very stuffy and needs ventilation! Other than that we enjoyed everything else. Breakfast was good and gave us a good start to our day!

my (1st) 5 days in Konya were made all the more enjoyable with a relaxing and trouble free stay here. Overlooking the tranquil 'tomb' of Shams Tabrizi & the adjacent parkland , the Hotel Ani and Sems is located within easy walking distance of Mevlana and much of the 'old city'. The staff were ever friendly and helpful, at least... More

This is just an update: We stayed one night. Hot water was fine. Nice open window to the park and the sounds of people chatting. A good feel. Breakfast is good and staff are friendly and efficient. Also you can walk everywhere - through the markets, parks, back streets. A pleasant lack of tour buses and touts.

A Turk kindly called the hotel from the bus station for me and obtained a quote of 49TL. When I arrived about an hour later, I was told 50 Euro by the manager - more than double ! Clearly the desk clerk who had quoted early was embarrassed. The room, when I saw it was pokey. Needless to say I... More

We stayed here for two nights in April 2011. Great cost and location. It's located right opposite the tomb of Shams Tabrez, the mentor of Mevlana Rumi. It is also located close to the Alaettin Mosque, the oldest mosque in Konya. Had a great time, very comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff and great breakfast with a large dining hall. Highly...

I stayed at this hotel for two nights right at the beginning of Ramazan (Ramadan), and chose it ahead of the nearby Hotel Rumi due to Ani and Sems's better location and cheaper rate. In hindsight, I should have just gone to Hotel Rumi! Ani and Sems is situated halfway between Alaadin and Mevlani Museum, and I was quoted €35... More
