“Well hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

The first thing to say was that this place is nigh on impossible to find. Even with Route Planner directions we drove around for nearly 2 hours. and stopped several times to ask directions but no joy. We knew we were in vicinity but could not get there. Eventually asked taxi driver to escort us - we were driving ourselves. Taxi drivers in Ankara only seem to know their own area, a problem we had later, but were all delightfully friendly. Hotel is on a quiet shady street and just as in the photographs. We loved it. We were only there for two nights but had no fault to find at all. Large, comfortable room with very good bathroom. Good breakfast. Helpful staff. Exchange rate in hotel the same as bank which saved much time and effort. Very pleasant terrace area and attractive pool but unfortunately amazingly cold when we arrived although we tried it twice - Brits abroad ! We would definitely go back to this hotel when we return to Ankara. Have marked a 4 for restaurant as we could only judge on breakfast, our late arrival meant that unfortunately we went to bed hungry.

Room Tip: They have started building to the front, across the road, which didn't disturb us but may cause...

This was my first time that I stayed in this hotel. A good thing about breakfast is that you can order Omlet and Fried egg. The breakfast time is 7 to 10 and you better get up early before 8:30 AM to make sure is something left for you.
There were a few markets, restaurants and cafes nearby. So, if you like shopping, restaurants, cafes, it is better you find a hotel in Tunali Hilmi Cd (Tunali Hilmi street) but if you really need a quiet place, this hotel is the best.
Everything was clean; the staff were helpful and polite; the rooms were comfortable but the view was not good; the WiFi worked well.

I have stayed in at least 6-7 different hotels in Ankara over the years, but about 12 years ago a colleague recommended the King Hotel (Guvenlik), and I have never stayed anywhere else since then. The location is perfect for me, the staff are extremely helpful, the rooms are surprisingly large (and very comfortable), the wifi works well, the breakfast is great, and the price is good. I like the neighborhood, and it is an easy walk to markets and restaurants. There are a couple of restaurants very close by, and others are about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel also has a restaurant, and on nice evenings it is pleasant to sit on the back terrace. I have walked from the hotel to the Anitkabir (Atatürk memorial) and the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations; it is also easy to get a taxi at anytime. There is a taxi station just around the corner, and the hotel staff can get a taxi in front of the hotel in minutes. One year, I stayed a week and the hotel arranged for the same very nice taxi driver to take me to my conference every morning at the same time. Note that there is a sister-hotel -- King Hotel Çankaya (I stayed there once and it was fine, but I like the Güvenlik hotel the best).

A very good hotel with kind and very helpful staff. Large, clean and up to standard rooms with free WIFI on each floor, on a walking distance to several shopping streets and restaurants and at the same time in a quiet area with a view on the parliament buildings and park..

This was my second stay in King Hotel and, again, it was a good experience. Rooms are big and quiet and the beds are comfortable. During my first visit I was with my 2-month-old son and they provided us with a nice cot (a real one, not a travel cot). This time I only have one complaint: the room smelled of smoke (this happened also in the Esenboga Airport Hotel, I guess non-smoking is still not so popular in Ankara). Breakfast is nice and varied and also good for lunch. The swimming pool is great if you visit in the summer.

The best is, without doubt, the staff: everybody is nice and extremely helpful and we felt like home. They also have a small library in the reception and you may exchange books if you want to.

I was there both times for business and the hotel was quite close to our working place. We used taxis to move around.

Room Tip: Those that end in 05 (105, 205...) are the biggest!

But not convenient to public transportation and far from old section of Ankara. You are not allowed to even see the outside of the parliament even though you are directly across from the high fence. Same with embassies in area. There are pharmacies and markets nearby, but not restaurants or cafes. Hotel is clean, well kept and staff were very helpful and arranged reasonable airport transfer. Restaurant is just OK as is the breakfast.

Great value for the price. Location is good, It is just at a 10 minute walking distance to the centre of Ankara.

Service quality was also good. Everything was clean. Overall, I was satisfied with the place and would definitely stay there in the future.
