Stayed at as part of Gate 1 (Virgin Vacations) 13 day Turkish Treasures tour.
This is the most modern hotel on the tour. Fitness center with spa – Jacuzzi, Sauna and steam room were free and very nice and relaxing after the long tour. Staff was excellent and spoke excellent English. Restaurant was too expensive to even consider especially with lots of options available in the mall next door. Mall next door is the largest mall I’ve ever been too and I live near both Woodfield and Gurnee malls in Chicago area. There is a metro station across the parking lot with only 2 stops to old town, Ulus. It was $3.50 TL for round trip. Hotel had the best bed compared to the other hotels on the Gate 1 tour with comfy pillows and blankets. It made it very hard to make it onto the tour bus on time in the morning! Over all, a very nice hotel that otherwise would have been too expensive for us to stay at if it wasn’t part of the tour package! However, a visit to Ankara isn’t necessary. It isn’t a pretty city and Istanbul is more fun! We only wanted to go to visit the Archeology museum. But by the time the tour group got there, we were too tired and crashed at the hotel. It would have been very feasible to right away after being dropped at the hotel by the tour bus, jump on the metro and get to the museum! Overall, a relaxing stay.
