Reviewed 23 July 2013

As you enter through the doors of the hotel, you ll think how on earth could this hotel earn 5 stars??
Breakfast is so disgusting that you can't even look at the bufe.
The hotel is located among the poor night clubs. I woke up at 3 am hearing Gunshots!! Not a safe place to stay!!

We really enjoyed this hotel,the rooms were lovely,quite Bohemien in style. There was good quality toiletries and towels provided. The balcony was a bit wobbly,so we didn't use it. As we were there when the riots were on.The dinner was excellant,but the drinks were quite expensive. The breakfast was good too.

We stayed two nights mid-April 16-17. We would not recommend. The staff are unhelphul, the hotel is old and needs a re-make, dinner and breakfast so-so. Beds are hard, pillows uncomfortable. There is much better value to be had. Our experience was very similar to Flo413's review.

This hotel charges excessive prices for drinks at dinner etc. The room was small, bed reasonable but pillows not so good. The meals were not good with little choice. Ok for one night but couldn't recommend. No English channel on TV, in our room, although some were able to get it on a higher floor. The staff wer not pleasant at all.

Pro points: Good spacious rooms, free wi-fi, bathrobes supplied, near to local stores and commercial district.

Neg points: No English channels on TV, limited access to shower via door on bath ledge. Evening meal very average although salad selection excellent, main 'hot' course cold and poor quality, Breakfast 'hot' selection was cold and cramped tables in dining room.

A nightclub next door on the main street, noise from cars outside racing off went on until around 0400.

Room Tip: avoid the rooms near the front.

It's a little bit bombastic for me, but rooms are large and clean. The location is ok, if you stay just one night - you need to walk for half a hour to find decent café in the pedestrian area of Ankara (a city you can avoid in your tour of Turkey) and around the hotel only night clubs.
Breakfast is really nothing special. As a travel group we had also dinner - forget it -
Wi-fi works well only in the lobby. I didn't like it very much.

You'll be impressed by the opulent lobby, but the tiny elevator, the so-so breakfast (not all set out 40 minutes after opening) and the rock hard beds were a bit of a let down. Great location for strolling and window shopping.
