Great place, right next to the Ankara castle in a very quiet area. Really great value for money and a great boutique hotel. Cem is the only receptionists who speaks English and is friendly, so if you have questions make sure you ask them when he is there.. Unfortunately the people in the restaurant speak very very little English so it was difficult to communicate with them on the food. The food in the restaurant is amazingly good. I really wish I could have stayed longer just to try all the dishes.
I have been in 27 countries in different types of the hotels, and that hotel is definitely is one the worst my experience of the last 3 years travelling. Building is awesome, and spirit of the old building is breathtaking. Stuff and atmosphere in hotel is awful. Small reception where is hard to find anyone, we staying 3 days and saw 3 different receptionist - just one spoke English, other speaking just a few. Check in was disappointed, receptionist tried to gave us lower type of the room, and was speaking about - all another room are booked. Overbooking happens sometimes, i could understand. But when i said that we should solve that question, bc we paid for definitely type of the room, suddenly they found exactly type room what we paid. Cheating from the entrance door is the main thing what I I am disappointed about. Security is rude, don't speak English at all and really lose the borders of acting with customers. I didn't expect anything extra, just a basic polite. Cleaning lady is only one polite person whom I met at hotel and she has a best English language skills from all stuff. So regret about my choice that hotel, and hope that management will pay attention to behavior of their workers, bc they made such beautiful hotel in great place so awful. Second bad thing is soundproofing of the rooms. I lived in room 201, and had a perfect sounds from next room, speaking, laughing even sleeping of another person.
very historical place . location is very close to Ankara Castle and several museums around. Excellent place to rest and to drink and eat looking to the old town historical area. Restoration is perfect for this location
Was very much impressed by the atmosphere in the hotel, the room's design, comfortability and size. I was lucky enough to get the room, which made me satisfied and made my stay very comfortable (the bathroom was sooo huge - it had both the tube and shower separately). The hotel itself has such a cosy atmosphere, that you don't even want to go out...The lobby, the library, the corridors...everything is veryyyy attractive!!! The staff is very service-minded!!! Didn't find anything to complain about😊 Highly recommended!!!
Nicely restored building and good setting if you want to be in old town but no atmosphere and above all terrible breakfasts. Feels like a room has been tacked on to the side as a restaurant. Breakfast is not buffet. Food of poor quality is handed to you - stale bread, a few cubes of cheese, badly-cooked eggs - and when we asked for fruit or espresso it was "extra charge". Ate in same restaurant for dinner - food was decent but poor service. Hotel rooms a little small but quite nice and good big bathroom. A bit cut off from rest of city. Wouldn't stay here again
Our room was spacious and very comfortable. All modern amenities were provided and the decoration was imaginative (our room was boot themed). The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The restaurant has a superb terrace overlooking the city and the dinner menu has modern Turkish and international cuisine (you could call it fusion.) We only had two complaints: The services guide in our room had not been updated for the upgrading and change of name of the restaurant, so we incorrectly believed that it was closed on Mondays until at about 8 pm we noticed that the lights were on. The main problem was that the breakfast service was slow and the food barely passable - nine cubes of cheese, stale, slightly warmed bread, and a menu of egg dishes (one fried egg, french toast...) On Sundays breakfast starts at 8; on other days it officially starts at 7:30 but on the day of our departure we had to leave at 7:45 having received only orange juice. The hotel is very conveniently located for the main tourist attractions - both the castle and the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations are within 100 metres. The area was a bit run down but is now being cleaned up and gentrified.
You'll be in a different atmosphere as soon as you enter. Very romantic hotel with spacious rooms and bathrooms. I definitely recommend you to have look at the library of the hotel. Unfortunately breakfast is extra about 12 euros per person. There were only 2 pillows and there was a pillow menu for free. Great location for tourists.
The hotel takes you back in time, yet it has all luxury of today's hotel. Very nice restaurant, the area outside the hotel is historical and full of museums and shops. The rooms are well designed, and it is really a must stay for all lovers of old and small boutique hotels
This is a boutique hotel located in a renovated 400-year old caravanserai in Ankara. The renovation is beautiful, and the rooms are very well-appointed -- my room had its own giant soaking tub and waterfall shower. As with all of the hotels I stayed in on my trip, the giant Turkish breakfast was fresh and satisfying. But the location is in the old part of Ankara, which is itself a little run-down and seedy and is not very convenient to public transportation. Also the hotel is difficult to find -- a series of narrow, winding, hilly streets -- and its Google Maps location is not quite exact. And it seemed to me that the service -- while polite -- was not the same level of warm, friendly Turkish hospitality that I experienced just about everywhere else in the country. At one point I was trying to upload trip updates, and download map updates, and the WiFi to the entire hotel cut out. And, for Turkey, the hotel is a little on the expensive side, although not exorbitantly so. If I come back to Ankara, I might forgo the beautiful renovation and rooms to stay somewhere a little more convenient and friendly.

The rooms are spacious enough for a historic thick walled building with decorative an a comfortable bathroom including a bath tub and a separate shower. The restaurant which is situated at the level -2, opening to a large terrace with a panoramic view of the city has an excellent menu. The staff who have been trained by the experienced senior staff of Divan Hotel Chain are very friendly and professional. For anybody who come to Ankara who has a taste for "old cities" and who prefers to stay in a luxurious hotel with quality.
