“great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

we had traveled to Ankara for work and were not really expecting much of the city. We were wrong, it is a warm, interesting city and worth a visit. We chose to stay at the Holiday Inn based on TA reviews. They were not wrong. The staff, the hotel, the rooms and the location were perfect for us. If there was a 1/2 star, this would be a 4.5. Firstly, I should note that we were bumped up to an executive room. We had a twin room which was spacious. There was a flat screen tv, safe, mini bar (alcohol is served at this hotel), the beds were comfortable and the shower a double size and was great. The hotel is smaller than others in this area but much better as a result (no chance for those incredibly loud weddings). there is a small bar area, a small restaurant (where they serve a really good breakfast, at least compared to what we had elsewhere in Turkey). There are lots of restaurants and bars in the area (walking). To get to the citadel/castle area, you need to take a taxi, but it is cheap enough.

Room Tip: if you can get bumped up to an exec room; the better!

i stayed in Holiday inn Ankara for a week and had a pleasant stay . the hotel is not big which goes for most of the hotels in Turkey . a small lobby only one restaurant . the hotel was very quiet and you don't see many guests .
located in a nice area and walking distance to nice shopping districts and many cafes and restaurant .
the rooms are OK in size but the house keeping was not good . the sheets were not changed daily and i noticed that tea mugs were not washed properly. also the room was only vacuumed twice during my 8 night stay .
also it would be nice if they had a spa or swimming pool .

Very nice hotel with friendly staff who all spoke English. The room was a good size with comfortable bed, small fridge, hot water pot, flat screen tv, movie channels, and in room safe. Very recently remodeled. The breakfast was excellent with much more than just rolls and cereal, lots of fresh fruit, hot dishes, tons of cheeses, and pastry selection. It seemed like it was central to downtown with an easy walk to restaurants but I was here on business so I don't know about tourist attractions.

With the exception of a false fire alarm that had me packing up my stuff 20 minutes after check-in and a lack of communication about using the key card for elevator access to upper floors, I enjoyed my stay at Holiday Inn Ankara-Kavaklidere.
The hotel staff was friendly and competent, the rooms new, clean, and stylish, and housekeeping was excellent, although they carted off a perfectly good bowl of cashews along with some actual refuse.
The hotel has good access to embassies and shopping and is located in a nice neighborhood with several good restaurants of various price ranges, a pharmacy, and a nightspot or two. It's a cheap taxi ride away from the Ankara train station.
Overall, recommended.

I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful hotel when I visited Ankara less than two weeks ago, and was thoroughly pleased and satisfied with absolutely everything. The hotel is beautiful! The rooms are modern and gives you that feeling of luxury and class at all angles. The breakfast and lunch buffets are unbeatable with an array of delicious selections to choose from and beautifully displayed. Room service is top notched. The meals I ordered to my room were actually far better than some of the other restaurants I tried in the city, which says alot. Management and staff were so professional and helpful during my stay and always very friendly. I had a great experience and wonderful stay and would not stay anywhere else in Ankara if given the choice to---I highly recommend.

Very new hotel right in the city centre. Very clean, modern rooms, small but nice restuarant and bar area. Staff were very helpful. Definitely a good alternative to the bigger, less friendly and more expensive Crowne Plaza.
