Excellent servicesPosted Jul 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
I highly recommend this hotel. I stayed there with my family for a week and some of my family members are going to Ankara within two months and they will stay in that wonderful hotel.

AcceptablePosted Jun 10, 2013
Cons: Improve and invest in fitness facilities.
The fitness facilities are age old, the machines are placed wrong around the room which makes me think no one every used those. The working hours for the fitness facilities are from 10AM to 10PM which is ridiculous. You can't use it to do a before breakfast run.

Reasonably priced hotel in very good locationPosted Apr 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
I was happy with my stay at Barcelo Ankara Altinel. The price was excellent (although it did not include breakfast - not an issue for me) and the room was very spacious. The location is good, very close to the railway station and the bus terminal to the airport; but it is a bit of a walk to the new centre of the city. There is a metro stop next to the hotel that makes moving around in the city very easy. I have two minor complaints. First, my room was not cleaned on one occasion. This may have to do with some mixup with my reservation but it was an omission. Second, on my first night there was a lot of noise coming from some kind of event hosted inside the hotel. The noise stopped at 11pm but it was very audible, even inside the room. Overall, however, for the price that I paid, the hotel was very good value for money.

Great location shame about room servicePosted Sep 10, 2012
Fantastic location next to the metro, Havas (shuttle service to the airport) and Ankara Gar (train station) are all within walking distance. You can walk to the city centre (Kisilay) with shops and restaurants on either side. You'll be spoilt for choice. The staff were nice and polite. However, the room was not cleaned daily and would be cleaned after 4 pm most days on request. The cleaning took 5 minutes which comprised of emptying the bins and wiping the floor with a detergent while I waited outside the room. The swimming pool was out of order with no alternative arrangement or warning which was annoying since it was one of the reasons for choosing this hotel. It is a 4 star hotel at most but has potential to be really good - maybe this review will help them improve the service.

I do not like it!!Posted Aug 11, 2012
the room was really small and you had almost no space except bed and the did not do house keeping well, they forgot to replace shampoo!! and housekeeping used to knock the door to see if you are not in room to clean the room! and the drainage for shower was not working well and the workers could not speak english very well. the only good thing was that they workers were trying to be nice and help you!

poor repair, sullen staff, poor quality breakfastPosted Mar 23, 2012
Pros: not far from the ankara gar
Cons: staff and breakfast
Location: near tandogan metro
Stayed four days at this Barcelo, in three different rooms. In general, the hotel is in poor repair and is staffed by under experienced and questionably managed staff, some of whom are not quite rude but do border on sullen. First room smelled of mildew and mold with windows that did not open. 2nd room also had windows that were in poor repair and did not open with a broken room safe that failed to open after closing (I did test it). Traffic noise on all majority of the rooms facing Tandogan is pretty bad, exp Staff seems challenged by reservations made over the Internet. Both locating and extending them. Breakfast had a lot of variety, but in general food quality was poor and with some items borderline stale. Low rate balanced the room out and while that compensated for the poor repair, in general the staff tips the balance against my staying here again.
