“smelling cigarette”
Reviewed 6 December 2012

I spent one night at this hotel, the staff was nice, it is outdated, the location is not easy to find. The worst thing about the hotel was the strong cigarette smoke everywhere. Cigarette smoking is not allowed supposedly but who cares, this is Turkey the rules can easly be overruled. So as a non smoker I had to bear with a terrible cigarette smelling room one night. I had a friend with me staying in another roon and he complained that his room was also cigarette smoking.

Room Tip: It is a hotel for smokers, if you are a non smoker do not choose this hotel

I've stayed at this hotel a few times, always booked by my company, so not my choice. There is not a huge amount wrong with this hotel, it just lacks anything that makes it special. it is a place for sleeping but not much more.

Reception staff are efficient, but it is pot luck if you can communicate in English. The restaurant is poor, no one seems to east there, food is mediocre at best. Breakfast however is not bad, with a good selection.

The hotel seems to be a short stopover business hotel, rooms are quite small and dark, all with too much heavy dark wood furniture. All rooms feel cluttered.

Over the last year or so there has been some redecoration/renovation work going on, which is helping improve the slightly tired decor.

Internet access is free in all rooms via wifi... if it works! Service is at best patchy, if this is important to you, you need a room near the staircase, rooms further away have poor reception.

Thee is a Hammam (Turkish bath/sauna) in the basement, but I have never used it as it has either been closed for renovation or turned off. There is an outside pool, never seen any water in it though, and it is situated right next to the motorway.

There are no restaurants, bars etc nearby, everything is a taxi ride/drive away. There is a taxi rank just outside the hotel so they are easy to obtain.

So, in summary, nothing really wrong, just very much a hotel that "could do better"!

I just stayed one night in Gazi park hotel Ankara as i have to wait for the next day bus. It's quite difficult by that time to walk in and get a room because Ankara is not a tourist area like Sultanahamet and people there cannot speak English or rarely understand English. You need to bring a paper with pen to communicate with people there. Actually they are willing to help you but they just cannot speak it out !!!!!

I mentioned all of this because i have to explain very difficultly to taxi driver to find an inexpensive room near ASTI where as it is getting dark and Ankara is different from Istanbul...cannot go out by foot, so i want to get a room as fast as possible...also tired from a flight etc..

So i can just recommend that Hotel GAZI Park is a good one with the affordable price (i got 55 euro / night for walk in price) and i think reasonable compared with hotel type (twin building) . The room is very comfortable and large the breakfast is rich (but Turkish style). Staff is willing to help you, but try to use your body language with paper and pen !!!

Room Tip: I also don't know...i think all rooms are mostly same standard.

I would say this hotel is a little out dated, could do with a revamp. I asked for a non-smoking room but the room smelt really strongly of smoke, The hotel staff were friendly. The location was good for me as i had someone giving me a lift into the centre but it's not great loccation for the centre otherwise about 15mins away.
The breakfast wasn't great, no fresh fruit and no toaster. There was plenty of ham and cheese and bread, boiled eggs but that was about it really. The pillows in my room were awful too, very lumpy.

Room Tip: Definately ask for non-smoking
