Great palace, splendid views. Also the ride to the palace is a blast driving through the military posts surrounding the Kurdish city of Dogubeyazit. The whole area of the palace is great.

It's not old by Turkey terms, but the architecture is very interesting. The dungeon is especially interesting.

I did it from Kars and back to Erzurum and therefore cannot answer your question. But in my view an overall driving time from Van to the palace of 2.5 hrs seems pretty aggressive.
