The 15 Best Hotels in Ankara

1. Lugal

Lugal hotel in Ankara
Hotel phone: +90 312 457 6050
The Lugal dominates a particularly leafy section of an inner-city district filled with stylish places to eat, drink, and shop. Overshadowed by its sister hotel, the adjoining Sheraton, the Lugal is more compact, elegant, and personable than most five-stars in Ankara. Guests can use the facilities at the Sheraton which include a substantial pool, incredible fitness center, rooftop tennis court, and even a Golf Lounge (that simulates courses around the world). Rooms feature fashionable décor and wide windows with extensive views of the streets and gardens. Those with connecting doors as well as the sizable suites would suit families. Also, the hotel is attached to a major shopping center.

2. JW Marriott Hotel Ankara

JW Marriott Hotel in Ankara
Hotel phone: +90 312 248 8888
From the colossal lobby with marble columns and oversized chandeliers, the Marriott aims to impress, and succeeds completely. Amenities are world-class, including the two pools, gym, and ‘wellness center’ with spa, Turkish bath, and sauna. All rooms and suites are particularly spacious and feature dedicated work areas, plenty of seating, and full-length windows maximizing the views. In an area of western Ankara becoming increasingly crowded with towering offices, luxury hotels, and classy malls, the nearby metro station helps offset the isolation, while taxis are lined up outside the hotel door.

3. Wyndham Ankara

Hotel phone: +90 312 219 0303
The Wyndham is quietly positioned at the end of a traffic-free row of cafés and bars that start outside a shopping mall nearby. In a developing section of western Ankara that’s not (yet) overbuilt, the hotel is friendly, well-managed, and instantly likable. All rooms and suites are comfortable, nicely designed, and large enough for at least one extra single bed, while the expansive views of the adjacent gardens and car-free streets are among the city’s finest. What’s more, the indoor pool features a particularly attractive design.

4. Holiday Inn Ankara – Kavaklidere

Holiday Inn Ankara - Kavaklidere hotel
Hotel phone: 90 312 424 4000
Primarily a business hotel (but still a fabulous option for tourists), it faces a quietish street in a handy inner-city district of embassies and boutiques. It is close to a vibrant area of student-priced pubs and cafés, and a short taxi trip from the major sights and transport hubs. As part of a well-known chain, all rooms and suites are comfortable and functional and feature all the mod-cons, while the hotel amenities include a business center, gym, and free parking (but no pool).

5. Grand Ankara Hotel Convention Center

Grand Ankara Hotel Convention Center
Hotel phone: +90 312 410 5500
Part of a substantial convention center complex, the Grand Ankara faces the main road through a convenient inner-city area – and is about five minutes from a lively district full of affordable pubs and cafés, and just a short taxi trip from the major sights and transport hubs. The lobby and lounge areas are all glitz and glamor, while the indoor pool area is surprisingly large and so bright and airy. The décor in the rooms is more tasteful than similar hotels nearby, and even the standard ones feature fashionable furnishings like stand-alone bathtubs.

6. Sheraton Ankara Hotel & Convention Center

Sheraton Hotel & Convention Center in Ankara
Hotel phone: +90 312 457 6000
This distinctive, circular high-rise dominates the grassy inner-city district of embassies, malls, and bistros. The amazing facilities include the substantial pool, incredible fitness center, rooftop tennis court, and the much-vaunted Golf Lounge (where guests can ‘play’ on simulated courses around the world). The lobby with its grand piano and crystal chandeliers is very swish, while the hotel design ensures that all windows in the rooms and suites provide mesmerizing views of the streets and gardens. Part of the Lugal hotel, which is attached to the Sheraton, is an impressive mall, and the surrounding streets provide plenty of fashionable places for a meal and/or drink.

7. Movenpick Hotel Ankara

Movenpick Hotel in Ankara
Hotel phone: +90 312 258 5800
Within an area of western Ankara crowded with glass-and-concrete high-rises, the design of the Mövenpick is quite striking and ensures that all views are worthwhile. The position is also excellent: easily accessible via the main road (and rooms are well soundproofed), just across a side street from a huge mall, and close to a quiet row of outdoor cafés. The colorful furniture and full-length windows throughout the hotel are very appealing, and rooms feature plush furnishings and abundant seating. The indoor pool with chequered tiling is attached to the impressive ‘wellness’ complex comprising a spa, sauna, and Turkish bath.

8. Ankara HiltonSA

Ankara HiltonSA hotel
Hotel phone: +90 312 455 0000
A dominant landmark in an upmarket inner-city suburb of parks and malls, this hotel offers all the first-class amenities expected of a Hilton, including a large heated indoor pool surrounded by full-length windows. From the chic and colorful lobby, corridors lead to the spacious and functional rooms, perhaps more designed for business people than tourists, and as the only high-rise in the area, views from all windows are excellent. Renovated in 2018 and facing a tiny residential street, the area around the hotel is filled with boutiques and bistros.

9. Demonti Hotel

Demonti Hotel in Ankara
Hotel phone: +90 312 417 0808
The striking exterior and glitzy lobby indicate that the Demonti is considerably more sophisticated than the affordable rates would suggest. It fronts a (usually) quiet street within a lively inner-city district packed with student-priced pubs and cafés. Rooms feature neutral décor and some funky art, while the very spacious suites have separate living rooms and huge balconies, and are far better value than the lowest-category rooms in higher-rated competitors. An added bonus is the fantastic resort-style buffet breakfast included in all rates. Less than a kilometer from a stop for the airport shuttle, and a short taxi trip to the major sights and transport hubs.

10. Eyuboglu Hotel

Eyuboglu Hotel in Ankara
Hotel phone: +90 312 417 6400
The hotel is pleasantly positioned within an energetic inner-city area overflowing with competitively-priced pubs and cafés, but along a street with (usually) little traffic. The white exterior, spacious lobby, and friendly staff are particularly appealing, while the very comfortable rooms provide more color and seating than most rivals. Offering high-level sophistication with low-level rates (that include breakfast), it’s about five minutes from a stop for the airport shuttle, and a short taxi trip to the major sights and transport hubs.

11. The Ankara Hotel

The Ankara hotel in Ankara
Hotel phone: +90 312 508 1010
The name may be ordinary, but this hotel certainly is not – it is perched above railway lines and attached to the equally sleek train station for express services to Istanbul. With abundant windows (and excellent soundproofing) throughout, The Ankara is commendably bright and airy, and a section of the restaurant actually overlooks the train tracks. Rooms are furnished in an unfussy, contemporary style, while the suites are much larger. A mall is attached and several restaurants, shops, and nightclubs as well as a metro station are five minutes away via a pedestrian overpass.

12. Akar International Hotel

Akar International Hotel in Ankara
Hotel phone: +90 312 232 1010
Nicely positioned opposite a park and metro station, the Akar is along a leafy residential street with enough amenities (including several nightclubs) and is also about five minutes from the train station for express services to Istanbul. The leather sofas in the guest lounge are indicative of the elegance throughout this compact and friendly hotel. Rooms also offer plenty of space and, being on a corner, views are better than other hotels along this road. Offering more quality (including an indoor pool and breakfast) for less money, the Akar is a better alternative than many overpriced five-star hotels in the Turkish capital.

13. Anemon Ankara

Anemon Ankara Hotel
Hotel phone: +90 312 425 1919
The Anemon fronts a shady and (usually) quiet street within a vibrant inner-city district packed with student-priced pubs and cafés. The glass exterior, spacious lobby, and rooms featuring a chic wooden décor indicate that this hotel is far classier than nearby rivals. The main selling points are the inexpensive rates (that include breakfast) and convenience: less than a kilometer from a stop for the airport shuttle, and a short taxi trip to the major sights and transport hubs.

14. Midas Hotel

Midas Hotel in Ankara
Hotel phone: +90 312 424 0110
The Midas is classy enough to almost justify its four stars, but the rates (including breakfast) are much lower than expected. It’s pleasantly positioned along a shady inner-city street lined with sophisticated bistros and jazz clubs, and about a kilometer from a stop for the airport shuttle. The lobby is stylish and the facilities are impressive, including a gym and sauna, while rooms are certainly more comfortable and spacious than most nearby rivals. The soundproofing is very effective, too, and rooms on the higher floors provide absorbing street views.

15. Hotel Ickale

Hotel Ickale in Ankara
Hotel phone: +90 312 231 7710
Standing tall along a shady residential street with some tourist amenities (including several nightclubs), the Içkale is convenient to the metro and express trains for Istanbul. The eye-catching Art Deco design is complemented by the ornate furnishings in the lounge, library, and restaurant. The rooms are not quite as fetching, but they’re certainly spacious, and do contain lovely antique-style furniture – and some suites even have jacuzzis. Most rooms feature sizable balconies that do, unfortunately, face an adjacent building. It has a pool and a Turkish bath but is not quite the five-star it claims to be – although the Içkale is more charming and affordable than some hotels that are.
