As Turkey’s capital city, Ankara is known as the calmer and more organized bureaucratic sibling to Istanbul. For tourists, the city has plenty to do and plenty of excellent hotels to choose from. We’ve rounded up some of the best, so you can make your reservation with confidence.
One of the more classic hotels that’s set right in the residential Çankaya neighborhood, the Ankara Hilton is a great place to stay if you want to be steps away from Tunalı Hilmi street where locals spend most of their time shopping. As expected of a Hilton, all amenities are offered without fail, whether you’re a business traveler or a family with kids. Comfortable rooms and suites with a contemporary style, the Greenhouse Restaurant with a garden view, and the relaxing Lotus Bar and Lounge, are some of the standouts. By the way, if you’re a fitness junkie, the Hilton is a particularly good choice with its pool plus tennis and squash courts.

One of the more historic accommodations in Ankara, the Divan Çukurhan is located within a beautifully renovated structure dating back to the late 16th or early 17th century. Located opposite the Ankara Citadel, the stunning brick and stone building with wooden planks and bays used to serve as an Ottoman city caravanserai and underwent a meticulous restoration period from 2007 until 2010. Visitors can expect a lot of nostalgic charm as well as the elegance and modern amenities for which the Divan brand is known for all throughout Turkey and abroad. Individually designed rooms, the gorgeous Safranhan Brasserie and Avlu Bar in the main historic arcade, and a location in the city’s center close to all of Ankara’s main sights are only a few attributes that make Divan Çukurhan quite unique.
