“karahan hotel friendly and clean”
Reviewed 24 September 2011

We had a very good time in Karahan hotel. The owner is a erudite and friendly person who speaks very good english, a respite in eastern Turkey. The breakfast on the great balcony was very good, the servants were friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean with good beds. From our room we had a nice view on the surrounding moumtains The use of wood everywhere in the hotel makes a warm atmosphere
The hotel is situated in the centre of the town. Parking just beside the hotel.
Keep in mind that you are here in a poor region, in that way Karahan is the best hotel.

we stayed here as it was supposed to be the best hotel possible in Artvin. City in itself did not seem us very attractive, but the nature around it is beautiful. The hotel has small free car park at the back, indicated from the main street, so that was easy. We had booked in advance and were shown two rooms. In the morning they tried to charge however different price as apparently we had chosen a suite type of room. In the end they apologised. Spoke a bit of English. Dark and old hotel, in line with our perception of the city, to be done as a stopover place only. Breakfast in the morning was the basic one, but could be taken on terrace above the main street with some reasonable nice view on the horizon and valleys/hills around it. They were reasonably helpful inquiring if there were any problems in the evening. Room furniture and bathroom were worn out, but still not medium priced hotel I thought (110 TRY for us with 2 kids).

Our tour from hell with Tigran Babayan was made particularly miserable by his economic choices of hotels (he refused to spend more than $35/night for a room). Each night we would get anticipatory chills from the thought that he was on his way to a new flea bag. However, the Hotel Karahan (1 star) was the real low point in his repetoire of bad hotels.

Granted this dusty, hot, backwater town had but two hotels. I would suggest the reader seriously (and I am being serious) consider either sleeping in the car (or tour bus as the case may be) or finding a park bench.

The rooms are small, dark, dank, with a smell of old urine and feces. The smell actually eminates from the urine stained drains in the bathroom which also is decorated with flakes of stool and rust on the toilet. The beds are not only uncomfortable but have bed bugs. Armed with bug spray I managed to kill most but not before a few feasted on us during the night. There is a TV and a refrigerator but in poor repair. The bedding reeks of ... well ... nevermind as you probably get the picture. We immediately threw all the bedding in the corner and slept in our clothing.

In summer this part of the world is swelteringly hot. There are AC units in each room but they seem to make the room warming then the outside temp (we tried several rooms and gave up).

We were very angry and let our guide and hotel management know. So they gave us "the room we give government officials". The only difference was a tiny, dark side room with too many beds and an odor so bag we closed the door.

The breakfast was actually acceptable but I stayed away from anything that might possibly be contaminated and stuck with bread and commercially sealed jam.

  • Liked — Getting the heck out of the hotel the next morning
  • Disliked — Bed bugs, urine stains, smell of human waste, AC did not work
