We were in Bitlis for one night, on our way from Capadoccia to Kars.
If the city of Bitlis is pleasant, this hotel doesn't make your stay comfortable, to say the least.
We paid 60TL for a double bedroom, which is on the low side of what you can find in Anatolia.
As soon as you step in the lobby you feel that this place is dirty, and the odor unpleasant.
The bedroom looks OK, but as soon as you settle in you realize all the dirt everywhere: curtains, floor, ... The bathroom is discusting, with cockroaches.
If LonelyPlanet recommends it (an advice we followed), we strongly advise you to push a little further for your hotel night. After the visit of the nice city of Bitlis, find your hotel in Tatvan for a good night rest.
