“Good location, good bedroom, shame about the bathroom”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2009

It's got a great location and the bedroom itself is a cheery yellow and blue mix. My only gripe is that the bathroom (accurate photo from previous reviewer) doesn't have a shower curtain so you ended up soaking the whole bathroom. We also had slightly sporadic hot water which the management did their best to fix. In the Rough Guide, it says the management is friendly and in the LP, grumpy but that's because there is one of each! The friendly guy is super super nice! If you want to go to Ani, Celil (mentioned in both guidebooks) comes by the hotel at 7.30pm in the evening to see if you want to go. The rate seems to be 80TL for 2 or 30TL each if there is 4 of you. We took a guy named Zeki who we met when we got off the bus - he did a great price of 60TL for a private taxi for the 2 of us. His number is [--] but no English unfortunately. You could just say Ani Hotel Temel, yarin (tomorrow) altmish lira (60 lira) saat dokuz (9am). Both drivers give you 3 hours there at the site.

We picked this hotel when the Gungoren was full with a Dutch tour group. When you are looking for it its easy to find but the entrance is tucked away round the side. reception spoke impeccable English and was very helpful. He supplied advice on how to get to ANI.
There was an older man (clearly the owner or something like) who supplied free tea whenever needed.
We had a clean ensuite room with a TV. It was a nice quiet airy room, clean with comfy beds. It is heated when needed although it was quite warm when we were there.
Breakfast was a self service buffet and included many types of cheese as well as the usual tomatoes, cucumber and eggs. Bread was very nice.
If you are looking for a good, cheap, clean room with all of the facilities you need - this is your place.
