Although we had looked at pictures and read reviews, the Divan Cukurhan was way beyond our expectations. Four years ago in Ankara we had stayed in a downtown highrise hotel--it was very nice but just a hotel. The Divan Cukurhan goes way beyond the standard definition of a hotel. This historic, converted han had surprising touches wherever you looked--from the... More

I stayed four nights in the Divan Cukurhan on a business trip to Ankara, which I find to be a sprawling and characterless city. In complete contrast, this hotel in one of the few interesting parts of the city, has a character all of it own, with a lobby reminiscent of a hunting lodge, complete with big game and other...

This hidden gem of Ankara is a must stay place for business and leisure travellers. Located just opposite from the Ankara castle and next to the Anatolian civilization museum, the rooms offer magnificient views of Ankara. The staff always greets you with smile thanks to the professional managing style of Sylvia Dal. The rooms are spacious and spotless clean. The... More

The Divan Cukurhan hotel was beyond anything I expected. Knowing the Divan group of hotels I knew that there would be attention to detail and the best in services. But I was unprepared for the luxury, the decadence of the decor, attention to meeting every need of a discerning guest, down to an espresso machine, the finest sheets and bath... More

Wow, Wow and Wow sum up the hotel's ambiance, our room and the service. The remodeled building used to be a 16th-century caravanserai and has retained the former giant courtyard with rooms around the second level. The courtyard is now a lobby and open restaurant with a library and a bar off of it. A sitting area with leather couches... More

On a recent business trip to Ankara, I chose to stay at the Divan Cukurhan rather than the typical Marriott because I thought it would be more interesting. All I can say is wow! I spend considerable time here trying to figure out how to capture the hotel in pictures, and it is hard to do it justice. I arrived... More

Made me appreciate Turkey more. This hotel is one of the best proof of how Turks are proud of their history and heritage. By restoring this 16th century caravanserai and turning it into a boutique hotel, Divan has not only thought of business and income but has also made sure that the future generation will be able to enjoy this...

Luxurious boutique hotel. Stayed a week in a first floor room facing the adjacent property so had a pleasant view. Great location for those interested in heritage, museums and the like. Used the restaurant most nights and was well satisfied. Very good senior management but desk staff's english a bit lacking and sometimes pretended to understand when they did not... More

A very comfortable hotel, lavishly furnished in a perfect position in Ankara. Elegant large rooms with views over the city. Quiet as the hotel is next to the citadel entrance high above the main part of the city.
