Merhaba, Ankara cevresinde ya da buralara cok da uzak olmayan mesafelerde sakin, orman icinde butik otel gibi onerebileceginiz yerler var midir?
kızılcahamamda patalya otel var. ufak değil ama sakindir.ormanın içindedir... termalde var.hafta sonu ve kongre zamanları kalabalıktır.

Sakaryada sapanca etrafında dağ otelleri var. Uğurlubey otelinde kalmıştım. Ömrümde gördüğüm en misafirperver oteldi diyebilirim.
Hızlı trenle gidilebiliyor diye biliyorum. Otobüsle biraz uzun sürüyor yol.

Hey guys! I'll be in Ankara on the 10th, and I want to go to The Salt Lake and other nearby palaces around the Sereflikochisar area. Do you know which bus number goes to this area, and how long will it take? Is the lake near any other attraction?
Moreover, I will be going from Sereflikochisar to Goreme afterwards; do I take the same bus? I'm asking these questions now because some of the bus drivers may not be able to speak English and I may have to change buses along the way.

First of all welcome to my country. The is main bus station in Ankara which calling as ASTI. (You can find many connections to ASTI from all around Ankara.) There is one company ''Tuz Golu Seyehat'' which is Serefli Kochisar's local company. Also you can find different company buses because almost 5 cities buses uses that main road which is edge of Salt Lake.(some of them, Kamil Koc, Aksaray Birlik and Metro Turizm) Don't wory just ask to companies, are they going to salt lake, in ASTI.
Salt Lake take about 1,5 hours from Ankara by bus. For Goreme ( Nevsehir City) you should follow Aksaray city directions. (Also you can visit many palcaes in Aksaray, you shoold google it.) From Salt Lake to Goreme takes aboud 2,5 hours by bus.
I guess you can find people who knows English because there are a lot of turist on this ragion.
Have a nice trip

Hi guys. Where would be a good place to eat around the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations since I will be staying around there.
Tugberk Kara , , TUR, 2 months ago
First, I hope you would have a nice stay in Ankara. I would recommend you to go to the hamamönü region , it is close to your area. You can find many traditional houses with good food service. If you ask me about good place to eat near Mausoleum of Atatürk, Anıtkabir, I would definetely recommend Düveroğlu on Gençlik street. If you have any question, do not hesitate.

Thanks mate. Did a read up on the Hamamonu area. Apparently it is vehicle-free. Would be nice to stroll around after a meal.
there are few places for eating in ulus.(lots of resaturants but quality is generally low).i work near ulus it is very problematic to find some where to eat.
uludag restaurant: is a high quality restaurant specialised in iskender. (prices average) Denizciler Cad. No:54
bogazici lokantasi : on the same street. traditional house made turkish food.price average
develi pide kebap : only eat pide .(i recommend you civikli pide.also doner is sometimes very good. ) .middle of anafartalar street.price: very cheap
haci bayram donercisi. a good place to eat doner.it is at hacibayram region.also known as nazim usta donercisi.price level: cheap
