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 to your room if you dial them.) Breakfast, a large morning spread, is included. Jhoti at the front desk is so kind and helpful, and everyone goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Located near the Lamassu Hotel in Ankawa, it's close to the main road, as well as the Lamassu ATM.

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 meat eater. Hotel rooms were good sized and quiet for a good night's sleep.

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 get delicious food.
Parking lot is not available, have to park somewhere in the street close to hotel.

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 up.
