Just got back from one-nigh stay in Atalay. I booked it basically for the fantastic price and did not expect much.
But the hotel turned out to be pretty fine. Check-in/out procedure fast and easy. Good and helpful employees. Coffee machine (not a very high quality though) in the lobby. The room was pretty clean and of an acceptable size for one person - the bathroom, though, is a bit small. You can live with that of course as long as it is clean, and it sure is. Good toiletries.
The two highlights I liked most about this hotel were the free WI-FI, which worked just perfectly, and the breakfast. Believe me, in Turkey I have been to 5 star hotels with much poorer breakfast. The options were plentiful and of good quality - and it was served on 10th floor, which had a nice view of the town.
There are small flaws, of course. TV programs are pretty weak and insufficient if you are bored, but you can always stick to internet. And there was a silly automatic, photo-electric (or whatever it is called) lamp in the entrance of the room that went on and off whenever I moved inside the room - even in the daytime. Very weird and unnecessary. And the walls are quite thin so if you have a noisy neighbors expect to hear them off.
All in all, I recommend it for business travelers, esp the ones who are looking for a well-priced hotel in Ankara - a city which hotels can sometimes be ridiculous in terms of pricing.
