“Ankara Hotel-great little find for Vina del Mar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Ankara is very well located in a very safe area and close to everything. The bed was very comfy, shower was good with great water pressure and the staff very helpful. We booked a standard room and the only reason I gave it a 4 was because it was a bit small for the price although adequate for the two of us. The staff were terrific and all spoke English well. Great point for this Hotel is that there is free valet parking in the underground garage which is a huge plus in Vina because parking is at a premium and difficult! The Hotel is located on St. Martin the main road so it can be noisy but it is only a one block walk to the gorgeous beach walk for sunset and is surrounded by some good restaurants. The Restaurant in the Hotel is called "Ha" and is great. Staff here too were very good, particularly the Barman, Nacho!

Room Tip: Rooms located on St. Martin are noisy. Might ask for something on the side which would be quieter.

This hotel is well located and has friendly helpful staff. The wifi is a bit unstable but it's free. The suite we booked was spacious and clean and fairly well equipped
Breakfast is limited and if not included it may be worth going out lots of cafes nearby

Nice hotel, nice staff, excellent place, but internet doesn't work properly, specially in the rooms, bath throws water all over, and waiters in breakfast room are slow and unefficient - it takes 20 minutes to bring you a cup of coffee.Anyway, I would come back.

The hotel is close to the beach as the advertisement says but not the beach for swimming which is a 15 minute walk not complaining about the walk but there is a difference between a beach for swimming and one for view.
The hotel rooms are quite small so do not bring too many suitcases and other than that the rooms are kept very clean by the staff.
The front desk will go out of their way to help you and are there for you. There was one hic up on a tour we did as we got a Spanish speaking guide but the guide we had was a very hospitable individual who went out of his way to show us Valparaíso and Vina del Mar. If you have a good grasp of Spanish ask for Senor Luis to be your guide as he was wonderful.
A big plus is the free internet.
Only thing that I can say was annoying was breakfast staff of three who tend to hide and it takes a long time to get juice and coffee. This can be easily solved by management through training.
I would still come back to this hotel in the future.

The hotel is a nice property and well-run hotel. It is also very well located and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Also, the hotel is quiet, even though there is quite a bit of traffic on the road in front of it.

The breakfast is very nice, too, but for a European like myself, it can be a bit confusing. There is a buffet part, but the selection is a bit limited. However, you can ask the waiter for many things that are not on the buffet, like omelets and they´ll make it for you and bring it to your table. But, if you are not used to this service, it might take you until the 2nd or 3rd morning until you understand how this works. Also, while the service at breakfast is very friendly, it could be a bit better, because the waiters seem to forget orders at times.

The rooms are nice and modern, but they are small. Especially, if you are on a business trip, there really is no other space but your bed to sit on and work.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2009

It appears to be over 2 years since the last review of the Ankara Hotel, but it is still "under construction" in 2009. At $115 US, I found this hotel to be overpriced and unworthy of its self-proclaimed 4* rating.

The rooms are on the small side, but generally well appointed. My main issues came with the service and amenities beyond the room. The hotel has only one small elevator, making it almost impossible for 2 people and their bags to make the trip at the same time. And the lobby, which still appears to be about 6 months away from completion, is not much more than a hallway. After checking out, when I asked to use the bathroom, they directed me to the Esso gas station down the street. No public restroom in the hotel?

A few other small issues that I found odd during my stay:
1. No corkscrew available at the front desk
2. Being charged for the chocolates they put on your pillow.

For the right price, this hotel may be worth a shot, but I would highly advise looking elsewhere in Vina del Mar.
