Our group of eight thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at this hotel. It is located in a renovated Armenian house and is centrally located for walking around the historical sites of Kars. The rooms were clean, the beds very comfortable, and the bathroom/shower exceptional. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Kar's Otel should be classified as 3/3.5-star, & it charges a rate similar to Sydney, London, New York -- and much more than Ankara & Istanbul. My room was small but functional and comfortable, with good design now looking down-at-heel. It did not contain the amenities one expects: fridge, iron, safe, tissues, bathrobe, in-room welcome & instructions. (The TV instructions... More

We had visited Kars around 3 years ago and stayed in a different hotel. But we had seen Kar's Otel from a distance and we had liked the building a lot. That's why we have chosen it to stay during our second visit to Kars and we loved it: it was a memorable stay. The staff was very helpful from... More

We enjoyed our two night stay in this lovely hotel. There is one room on the ground floor, a suite and two rooms on the first floor and a family unit with two rooms on the second floor. The suite is fabulous but all rooms are large and well appointed. The bathrooms are big. The dining room and a small... More

The rooms are fine - spacious and comfortable, but how they can call themselves a "Boutique Hotel" or charge the sort of prices they are charging is beyond me. We had far better experiences in hotels in Turkey a third of the price ! We were expecting something a bit special but....soiled carpets, coffee, tea and bottled water in the... More

We had a wonderful suite in this refurbished old Russian house. The staff was very courteous and allowed us a late check out. They recommended a wonderful nearby restaurant. The breakfast is ordinary; thus I have chosen not to give the hotel five stars. While the usual breads and olives were available, and the jams and honey were excellent, no... More
