Admittedly we stayed here in July 2014. At the time, and I would venture remains true, it was by far the best place to stay in Kars. This town does not see a lot of tourists, and we were there during Ramadan so it was particularly quiet. We peaked at a few of the other hotels while wandering town and...

After a very long drive visiting Ani, the former capital of the Armenian Kingdom, this hotel, based in a former Russian manorial town house was a haven of whiteness, dust cleansing freshness and service. Food at the time of my visit was average but staff aimed to please. A little overpriced but a wonderful place to rest up, explore Kars...

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...

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...
