As Turkey’s capital city, Ankara is well known for its five-star hotels that look out over the skyline. But a few smaller yet equally worthy boutique hotels have also managed to make their mark as excellent accommodation.

Gordion Hotel

This small luxury hotel has a great location in Ankara’s city center close to all its major sights as well as its best restaurants and shops. In a city that usually abides to the theme of bigger is better, the small yet elegant Gordion stands out with its interior of marble façades, brass chandeliers, and gold-plated mirrors. In the lobby bar is an English aesthetic, complete with Chesterfield armchairs, while the indoor pool and sauna in the basement as well as the breezy rooftop restaurant are exceptional additions to a small but fantastic hotel.

Divan Cukurhan

One of Ankara’s most unique hotels is located in the Old Town and, befittingly, within the former Horse Market during the Ottoman Empire. The beautiful brick and stone structure, which functioned as an inn and marketplace with a large courtyard, was renovated extensively to abide to Divan’s elegant and modern aesthetic. Find a fantastic restaurant in the courtyard, and the rooms are individually designed according to a specific theme: choose to stay in the Mandarin Suite, with an Asian-inspired aesthetic, or in the Royal Suite, fit for the sultans—just to name a few.

Check Inn Hotel

This boutique hotel has an especially cool vibe that is sure to attract a younger urban crowd. Exposed brick walls painted white, framed graphic design pieces on the walls, and colorful furniture all exude an entirely different and modern outlook. Relax in the hotel’s spa, where Turkish bath and massage services as well as sauna, steam, Jacuzzi, and fitness rooms are all available for use. The hotel’s restaurant, Check Out, is a modern space with large windows and terrace looking out over the city in a dimly lit atmosphere, serving everything from an open buffet breakfast to dinner.
