“quiet neighborhood...”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

But not convenient to public transportation and far from old section of Ankara. You are not allowed to even see the outside of the parliament even though you are directly across from the high fence. Same with embassies in area. There are pharmacies and markets nearby, but not restaurants or cafes. Hotel is clean, well kept and staff were very helpful and arranged reasonable airport transfer. Restaurant is just OK as is the breakfast.

Great value for the price. Location is good, It is just at a 10 minute walking distance to the centre of Ankara.

Service quality was also good. Everything was clean. Overall, I was satisfied with the place and would definitely stay there in the future.

Located just 5 minutes away from the U.S. embassy, and just next to the Turkish Parliament, King hotel Güvenlik is one of the best hotels especially for those who travel to the Ankara for official purposes and U.S. visas. The hotel is very clean, with a calm environment in one of the safest areas of the Ankara. You will see every thing that you expect from an official hotel. Rooms have heating appliances, the staff could speak in English; and the fees also are acceptable.

Room Tip: I did not see any priority for any type of rooms.

We had a good two weeks here, staying b@b only,
Outdoor pool was closed due to time of year. Food was good but after two weeks of same everyday I went out to eat.
Wild dogs barked outside several nights running at 2am.
Was a good base as we visited my girlfriends family daily,she being from Ankara. Beds superb, room cleaned daily and modern looking.Generally quiet area, near to town and taxis are cheap and in abundance,
Wifi worked really well, towels shampoo and soap were all free with dressing gowns and slippers supplied too.
We had a special needs boy with us and he was welcomed and treated well too, even when he had some moments, Turkish people adore children except one taxi driver

My wife and I stayed at the King Hotel Kuvenlik for two nights during a month long trip to Turkey in May. It is a small hotel located on a relatively quiet side street just off of Ataturk Blvd very close to the Parliament (National Assembly) Park. It is very central to Ankara but not real close to the main tourist attractions other than the Kocatepe mosque which is about a ten to fifteen minute walk. The hotel is modern and efficient. Our room was spacious, pleasantly decorated and spotlessly clean. It was quiet and comfortable. The beds had reading lights and there was a decent sized desk in the room. The bathroom was roomy and modern with both a bathtub and a well functioning shower. The staff, in particular the porter and maids, were very welcoming and helpful. There was free Wifi, which worked very well, and free parking in a secure underground garage. Breakfast, included with the room, was good. The hotel has a restaurant, bar, fitness center and swimming pool. We paid 140 TL per night, which seemed to me a real bargain for Ankara. We found the hotel very comfortable and would happily stay there again.

friendly, helpful staff welcomed us at the hotel, which is a quiet respite near the US embassy. The breakfast, pool, and room were nice. The restaurant bade'm two doors up and other cafes and bakeries a few blocks up offer further alternatives.

Reviewed 21 February 2010

On a business trip to Ankara, we were recommended this hotel as being quiet and comfortable. I arranged an airport collection by e-mail (50TL compared with the 60-70 others paid using airport taxis) as I was arriving late at night, and the reception staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful

Breakfast was consistent and plentiful - self-service - muesli and cornflakes with dried fruits, hard boiled eggs, salad, cold meats, cheese, white and brown bread for toasting, fruit salad, yogurt, hot sausages (hot dog style in tomato sauce) with omelettes made to order, extremely good orange juice, tea or coffee

Rooms were spacious, with TV, mini bar (aka useful fridge!), and good sized desk with power sockets - and free WiFi!

Bathroom had excellent shower over bath, with bathrobe and shower cap - my only criticism would be that it was lacking in toiletries (shampoo and soap only), but as most travellers take their own, I doubt if it is really a problem

Helpful staff arranged transfers to and from the airport and stored my case for me while I was away, and allowed me to stay in the room until I left at 1pm for my flight

A street full of restaurants is about a 10 minute walk away directly parallel to and behind Ataturk Boulevard (didn't try the hotel restaurant) and taxis are plentiful. Take a card from reception which has a map of the hotel

The hotel is opposite an army barracks, so if you're lucky you'll get serenaded with marching music and singing in the afternoon!

Swimming pool not yet open, but the fitness room has a treadmill and exercise bike. Didn't try the bike, but the treadmill, albeit basic, was working fine

There's a supermarket about 50 yards away open until late, and the restaurant just up the hill is good (although English is very limited). Meatballs in a clay pot were excellent! I was advised to avoid Kebap44 which is also quite local

Location-wise, it was close to the offices I was visiting, so very convenient for me, but taxis are plentiful (if you walk down the hill and through the park, there's a taxi rank on Ataturk Boulevard). Very close to the Austrian, German and American Embassies

All in all, a very pleasant stay in a very friendly hotel
