“Great Service, Location and Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This was a great value hotel for a solo traveler. The room was spacious, very clean and modern. The service (Ercan) was excellent. They showed great initiative by arranging a hotel transfer, despite the fact I had booked through booking.com. The location was great for the Museum of Anatolian Civilization, the Ankara Hisar and was walking distance from the train station. Decent breakfast on the rooftop terrace and Wifi available. Con: A little difficult to find, but there is a rooftop sign you can look for.

Perfect location for visiting the Anatolian Museum... just 10 minutes uphill from the hotel.
Clean, modern, with no particular frills. Located in the 'old' town with lots of ambiance and much more 'real' than the modern part of Ankara. For intrepid travels with a sense of adventure.
No surprises, helpful staff, but with limited English and French. Breakfast was nothing
to write home about.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I stayed for 2 nights in mid-Feb 2013.
Hotel seemed pretty new and the furnishings were acceptable.
I slept in a standard double room and the bed was nice and comfy.
The location is in the old district and is very near the Civilisations musuem and Ankara citadel - which has its variety of restaurants.
The immediate area surrounding the hotel seems to be a lot of electronic shops, and not much choice for food or restaurants with English. It also gets near pitch dark at night.
None of the taxi drivers knew where the hotel was so it's difficult to find. If all else fails just tell him to drive you to the musuem where you can work you way there.
The staff hardly spoke English but they were helpful nonetheless providing me with LAN cable and helping me get on a taxi.
For the price it's pretty good no-frills.

Overall a pleasant stay, although the room smelled a bit like cigarette smoke, especially in the bathroom. Also, the shower did not drain well, and the bath towels were pretty rough. Otherwise the room was quite spacious and clean, even relatively new-looking. The staff was very friendly and accomodating, helping when we had to move baby gear, and even walking us to an excellent nearby restaurant. We drove our own car, which the staff parked in its own lot underneath the hotel. Although we did not have a great view, the location was convenient to all of the sites in the old part of the city. Breakfast was a standard Turkish buffet, nothing exceptional. A decent stay, especially for the price and location

It is always a challenge to find a place in Turkey even if you know the exact address. The hotel is small, near to the Castle, but a little bit far from the city centre. Free wifi, small breakfast, big rooms.

Don’t trust the hotel booking maps.
It was a bit of a chore locating this hotel. But it was well worth locating. The position is a great base for the museum, the citadel and the old town. Check out the market around the corner when you are there to get a view of local life without the taint of tourists.
The hotel room was clean and adequate. What I loved most of all was the manager and staff. They had no English, but I have rarely, (even in Turkey) come across such helpful people. The lengths that they went to to assist us with information and practical help was nothing short of extraordinary and at times hilarious.
Ankara may not be everyones cup of tea, but my memories are full of fondness, mainly because of the people.

I rate this hotel highly due to the ready kindness and helpfulness of the Manager and staff. The room is basic (if not cluttered) and the place seems dark. It has been a beautiful bldg in it's day and sits in the lovely old part of Ankara.
