We were welcomed with juice, tea & information on Ankara. The room was spacious & comfortable, if lacking in character. Everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was the best in our 6 weeks of travel in Turkey - an amazing array of food.The budget price was excellent for the service & room quality. It is difficult to find restaurants in the... More

We had an OK stay at this hotel. It’s unfair to mention the annoying noise coming from the street because of road work construction, but that is my most vivid memory of the two nights we spent here. Of course, that problem is solved by now. The rooms are old and the bed wasn’t very comfortable. Staff could have been... More

Our room was spacious, clean and very reasonably priced. Of all the wonderful breakfasts we had in Turkey, the "spread" put out by Ogulturk Hotel was the best. Incredible number of choices, and breakfast was included in the Hotel charge. We were within walking distance of the Anatolian Civilization Museum, the Citadel, and the Haci Bayram Mosque and could access... More

Oglturk is hard to find, even for cab drivers. My first room was horrible - dingy, dark, no reading light, but yes, clean. Breakfast was good and the staff was helpful. Upon my return I was given #501 which was spectacular, large, bright, well-furnished, with a decent reading light. They must be in the process of renovation. Be sure to... More
