“THe first thing that u should check is if the bathroom is ok”
Reviewed June 4, 2011

First, it´s hard to find the hoteland we didn´t feel comfortable to go out alone at night in this part of the city, because looks like knd of dangerous.
The rooms there looks old and there´sa lot of dusty, at least in the rooms that we stayed. In the first room that we stay was not clean, a lot of dusty, the shower was broken and when my mom took a bath was water in everywhere.
The secound room was with a lot of dusty 2 but at least the shower was working, so if u stay there make sure that the shower is ok!
Because of the location there´s a lot of noise, but when u r too tired u forgot about those things.
The staff there is more or less, some was very kind but the other people was kind of rude, like the girl in the reception and the guy who change our room.
The only thing good there is the price, is very cheap for a hotel in Ankara.

I am happy with the hotel and my girlfriend was also.
Breakfast was ok. Room was clean, bathroom was good (you heard the neigboard room noice from the bathroom air whole...but it is not a big issue :) you can just close the door :)

Bad thing was that hotel was far a way from the centrum. But lucky there is a metro stop about 10min walk from the hotel.

There was a WI-FI also for free. But it was cutting off cuite often.

Also A/C was working very well!!! it also had a remote.

Oglturk is hard to find, even for cab drivers. My first room was horrible - dingy, dark, no reading light, but yes, clean. Breakfast was good and the staff was helpful. Upon my return I was given #501 which was spectacular, large, bright, well-furnished, with a decent reading light. They must be in the process of renovation. Be sure to request one of the "new" rooms if you stay here. Hotel is a $4 cab ride from the Citadel, and a $1.85 dolmus ride (from a block away from the hotel) to the bus station. Neighborhood is not very attractive, but loaded with banks.

We stayed just one night i Ogulturk, traveling around in Turkey, believing it would be close to the busstation, but the busstation has move dout of the city. I was a little bit worried about the mentioning of red-light district. But there was nothing! The night was quiet - we could even keep our window open.
The reception-staff was very helpful, but the breakfast was a disaster. We came just after a group had had their breakfast and the buffet was almost emptied. ALL the waiters just stood around and were very reluctant to fill the dishes or just to serve us some eggs, even the coffee only came after several demands. And this was hours before closing-time. I hope it was only this one day, because otherwise the hotel is recommendable.

Very good hotel if you are travelling without family...it is central and in the middle of the red light amusement area...
Parking lot was for free, elevator is going directly to the parkin lot. Hotel is old but the rooms are clean.
Breakfast and personal was turkish standard (this means very good for european standard...). Some of them also spoke german.
