Reviewed 29 October 2013

My dolmus from the Iranian border stopped right in front of this hotel in Van's city center. The hotel is located in the city center. Friendly and English speaking staff, clean rooms and good beds. The hotel does not have a restaurant but a bar at the first floor.

We stayed at this place for one night en route from Van to Mardin.

The hotel lobby has been refurbished and looks much better than the pictures on Trip Advisor with lots of seating in the lobby areas with good wifi. The hotel also offers wifi on every floor although we could only get it in the landing not in our room. This wouldn't have been that bad as there was a cosy two seater but due to the sensor lighting we would plunge from lightness to darkness every 20 seconds or so - providing challenging circumstances for checking emails and skpying home.

The bedrooms were roomy enough and the most recent photos are representative. Unfortunately the bathrooms do not appear to have been refurbished at the same time and are old and grubby looking. Although the shower pressure is good and after a while there is hot water.

Breakfast was small but with all the usual suspects for a Turkish hotel breakfast.

Good location with lots of restaurants and baklava outlets nearby!

The staff were friendly, several spoke English, and they willing to give advice even to independent travelers. Despite Lonely Planet's description, the rooms do not have AC, explained by the manager by the fact that it cools down at night in Van. This is true outside, but when I was there there was very little breeze, and it took a very long time for the room to cool down. Add the problem that the room I had was quite noisy in the evening and morning, and it wasn't very comfortable, at least didn't meet my expectations. It's passable, clean enough, with decent services, but in no way goes above and beyond. Get the right price and maybe it's worth it, but skip the breakfast and pay the small amount for a tasty breakfast ten minutes away by foot on "breakfast street".

I have used Otel Buyuk Asur several times over the past few years and it has always been the same reliable place. It went through major renovations after the earthquake and became much more elegant than ever while preserving its welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The staff is very helpful. Location is excellent, close to all minibuses, restaurants, shops, bookshop, breakfast places, market (including the cheese market). The rooms are of good sizes, equipped with new furniture. All very clean, even various toiletries are provided. Wi-fi, television in every room, blow-dryer, no fridge. The breakfast buffet is generous, served on the large terrace in good weather. This hotel has never been a disappointment.

I stayed there 3 nights. The hotel is very well situated. The room was large enough and very clean, with tv. Staff is very helpful and can speak english. Only inconvenient (minors to me) : no air con in the room and breakfast isn't so nice.

Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in August.
Location is excellent, staff speaks English. Rooms are large. Wifi on every floor.
However, there is no air conditioning in the room, and the shelf in our bathroom has been broken.

Van doesn't have a very large amount of properties and the Buyuk Asur, is probably the best compromise. It's clean, centrally located and the rooms are comfortable (although a little expensive for a 2 star hotel). More luxurious (but at what point?) are Tamara Hotel (also in the city centre) and the Rescate, very badly located on a highway in the middle of nowhere.
