Grand Palace can be pricey, but if you can snag a room at a rate lower than their usual $200 a night fee, which is possible online, it's a steal. The hotel is renovated, clean, gorgeous, complete with a minibar, and best of all, the delicious French restaurant on the top floor. (Try the duck confit. They'll also bring it...

I would call this hotel above average even though it is probably not the best hotel in Erbil. It is safe and well located. I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent food in the hotel restaurant and think the shish-k-bobs are the best I've ever eaten! The lamb, beef and chicken were all superb and I'm usually not a big...

Excellent place for unofficial business meetings, due to the fact that dinning area is very quiet and not crowded as well. Staff very professional and helpful. If you are planning to have nice steak you won't regret it for sure. Little bit expensive, however regular guests are business people and international staff willing to spend extra money in order to...

Hotel is in nice location accessible to all shops nearby. Food is not that good. Staff is friendly and rooms are big and clean. Bar is on 6th Floor with a beautiful view of the city and mountains. I stayed there for one night so couldnt explore much.

Erbil tries to position itself as the Dubai of Iraq... And while it may have seemed that way in the past, lately, it is a little run down. This hotel is a prime example. With rooms in the mid $100 to $200 range, you would expect much more. The location is nice, if you want to hit the German bar...

If you are looking for a comfortable and convenient hotel this is your place. Located in the entrance to Ainkawa off of the Ring Road. The staff is very friendly and welcoming to the exquisite marble lobby. The rooms are simple but clean and the prices are excellent. The restaurant on the top floor provides an ample breakfast to prepare...

Our stay for business at the Grand Palace Hotel in Erbil was fantastic! It was our first trip to the Middle East, which given the time of our travel, left some concerns. Not only did we feel completely safe in Erbil, we were moved by how caring, thoughtful, and service-hearted the staff were. We became nightly friends with the restaurant...

Travelling for work, and usually staying in Erbil on the way into or out of Kurdistan, this Ankawa hotel is close to the airport, close to many restaurants and easy access to everywhere I need or want to go. The staff are super friendly, and the restaurant is good. The rooms are large, with power points where you need them....

My colleagues and I just stayed here for three weeks and really enjoyed it. The staff and owners are very friendly and really go out of their way to make you feel at home. For example, when our travel plans were disrupted and we were forced to spend the day waiting in the lobby for our car, the hotel owners...
