Very helpful staff - ready to welcome me and check me in at nearly midnight.
We were upgraded at no extra cost. The Hotel was in a very quiet street, close to main railway station and underground links. Staff were welcoming.
Only problem was there was too noisey place
The cleanliness of the room was good. The reception guy let me to have breakfast free of extra charge on the day of my arrival on 8:30 a.m. although my reservation was begun from 12:00 O'clock. Wireless internet was acceptable quality in the room as well as lobby.
The location! although on the map it was only less than 3 km quitely far from city center, central metro and bus station but it was taking 2 rides including one metro plus one bus riding to go to American Embassy in city center. The location was also compeletly in a private/urban area surounded by apartments and not business or tourist's area. Poor knowledge of Englsih communication by receptionists which seems not to be a surprise in Turkey! Fortunately the well dressed hotel manager lady knew English and was helpfull.
The breakfast was in a pleasant ambiance and with a large variaty of choises. The lobby was elegant, the room was large and comfortable.!~
The stuff did not know that the hotel is situated at 5 minutes walking to Atatturk Mausoleum (the most important turistic objectiv from Ankara) ?!? It was difficult for the stuff to provide us the city map ?!?
proximity to Attaturk Mausoleum and Museum
Yes the constant smell of people smoking, even the waiter in the restuatant. Awful!
The room smelt very smokey. Being non-smokers we find this unpleasant hence answer to question below.
just that I had to pay for the rooom upon arrival
Staff could hardly speak english!!!
the location was nice
