Where to stay in Ankara

Among the Roman ruins and citadels of the city of Ankara sits a collection of glitzy, upscale chain hotels. This cosmopolitan city may not be the best choice for the budget-conscious, so if shelling out a lot of money isn't your prerogative, look a little north of the city core to the independent hotels which are a bit more moderately priced. Alternatively, opt for an authentic, family-run Ottoman inn or boutique hotel. You'll find only one hostel here, which tends to fill up quickly.

  • Good to view some art work of popular Turkish artists. The 2nd building shows some interesting details of Turkish life. The father of the Turkish Republic was laid here from his death I run he was moved to his final resting place. Well worth a visit and good views over Ankara
  • A very interesting place to know about the cultures Turkish civilizations. I enjoyed that place a lot, and I spent more than 2 hours just looking around. This museum is full of houseware tools, weapons, furniture, traditional dresses which were used in the past in Turkey. The museum also contain a lot of the very beautiful paintings.
  • The staff doesn't speak English at all. Fortunately some tags are in English. I didn't enjoy every much the museum.
  • Beautiful art museum
  • Everyone should visit this museum
