“Basic Fairly Cheap Accommodation in Ankara”
Reviewed 2 June 2011

Otel Mithat is a relatively cheap multi-floored hotel (with an old elevator) near the central part of the old city (somewhat difficult to find) and not very far from the Citadel and the Anatolian Museum. The carpeted room was clean with a central light barely adequate for reading, and the Turkish breakfast was fine. The bed was covered with a too hot duvet (a sheet and blanket would have been preferred). The hot water was fine, but the shower in the small bathroom was practically on top of the toilet. A computer was available, but it was not free. Our major concern was that our 4th floor hallway had a door which said FIRE EXIT, but it was locked!!! This made us somewhat nervous. The receptionist didn’t speak much English, and when I tried to ask him about it he couldn’t explain why it was locked.

The hotel has been refurbished, I believe because our room was spotless and everything was in place. Service was very nice. We reached late at night but made the reservation by e-mail earlier. The reception had a nice man and an equally nice man took our luggage to our room after mid night. Next morning at 6:30 AM the same man was serving breakfast with a smile on his face. Strayed there for two nights. The location was good and we did not find the location unsafe at all even late at night. It is a great value hotel. Hot water was on time and was actually hot. Breakfast had coffee which is really unusual for Turkey at times. Wifi was fast and worked all the time in the room. We will stay here again if we go to Ankara.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room and you will get one.

It is a hotel which is a little bit run down. Our room was spartan. The wall missed some parts with paint. But... the shower was great and the bed was fantastic. Breakfast is not interesting but ok. WiFi is for free but the computer in the lobby is not. Ankara is a interesting city to visit for a few days. This hotel is a good location to start from.

Three nights with 4 twin beds for 2 adults and 3 children without air conditioning was fine. The mosque 100 m from bedroom window at 4:16am was a cultural experience. Hotel is close to Genclik Park and citadel, shopping and bus service. Near hospital district so heard many sirens.

We arrived into Ankara late at night without a place to stay (our first mistake) and decided with the help of the Lonely Planet on staying in Ulus, the older part of the city supposedly near more attractions (ie: the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, the one reason I one recommend going to Ankara to anyone). At any rate, after being knocked back due to no vacancies at one place, we turned here in need. Checked in painlessly, cheap as, and we were off...

Room was eh with a few missing fixtures and paint smears..not spotless but a good pressured shower and our tiredness made us forgive all.

The next morning we desperately needed washing done. They told us that due to Bayrahm holidays it would be hard to find an open laundry, but as we were down to practically nothing, we persisted. A porter with no English skills whatsoever took us just round the corner to a small shop, we dropped our two decent size bags for a total of roughly $20 fee and that was it, to be brought to us tomorrow before check out.

Flash to just before checkout, our laundry brought to our room as promised...however, it was returned STINKING of cigarette smoke! Neither my wife nor I smoke, and we know our clothes didn't stink before being submitted, so, in essence, they were returned DIRTIER than we when we handed them in! On top of that, my wife's recently purchased bikini (her only one with us on our long trip) was missing! The same porter kindly hunted it down after much arguing at the front desk. When he returned, I explained to both him AND THE OWNER that the state of our clothes was not acceptable. He told us there was nothing he could do and that we would have to accept the fact that we already paid the services. Nothing, no service what so ever...

So we left in a huff, foolishly without checking that EVERYTHING was there! Flash to hours later in Istanbul, and I discovered that a pair of my hand made linen pants (by my wife before we started our trip) was missing. Needless to say, we tried and tried and tried to contact the hotel and speak to the manager and/or owner but we were knocked back every time.

In the end, I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone, not even the bully from elementary school days. :(
