Where to Stay in Ankara, Turkey: Hotel Capital

Where to stay in Ankara, Turkey: The Capital Hotel.

My Turkish experience has been pretty cool in that we have gone to a few places well off the backpacking trail which was nice. This has meant spending time staying in hotels and even caves (at Goreme) instead of the usual hostel lifestyle. While Ankara is the capital city of Turkey and houses 5 million people, it doesn’t really have a “backpacker scene”, something which becomes obvious as you wander the streets!

Backpacking in Ankara, not many other travellers about but a great city.

In terms of places to stay, we chose the excellent Hotel Capital. This fitted for a few reasons and we loved it here.

1. Excellent Views of Ankara

We were lucky to get a window with a view on the 7th Floor. It was amazing to stare out at the Citadel and busy streets below. The weirdest part of our stay was experiencing a slight tremor on we were there! It hit 5 on the Richter Scale.

2. Free Wi-Fi

As a traveller these days, Wi Fi has become essential for keeping touch with friends, family and on top of business. The Hotel Capital has free Wi Fi. I’ve loved it!

3. Location

Ankara is a truly enormous city and it can be hard to find your bearings early on, but the Hotel Capital is well located. Just 5 minutes walk from the foot of the Citadel, close to Ulus metro station, on a main street (Cankiri Caddesi No. 21) and near lively restaurants and shops. It’s well located and we didn’t have to rely on public transport much when we were here.

4. Clean and spacious rooms

The love of a double bed, a comfy seat, a hot shower and even a desk for me to get work done made this a super place. The rooms are spacious and clean.

5. All you can eat breakfast

The breakfast was plentiful!! Such a range to choose from for hot food, cold food, salads, cereals and the drinks. Breakfast is included in your room rate too!
