Antis Hotel - Special Class4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Despite its strategic location near Sultanahmet, for me the staffs and rooms are not 4 stars. The rooms are quite small and near to railway. The staffs were not even helping considering we were transporting 9 suitcases from and into the car during check-in and check-out. They didn't inform that the room was non-smoking and there weren'tany signs informing it. Instead, they waited until the last day of checkout and gave 50 TL fine to us. My suggestion is that you are having holiday in Istanbul with family or even travelling group you can find better places with the same amount of money. Maybe even 3 star hotels have more comfortable rooms and better services/staffs than this hotel.
I did not select this hotel myself. Instead it was part of the ones selected for my trip to Turkey in an organized tour package. Location was ok. I walked to dinner every night, and as a solo female traveller I was assured ahead of time and upon arrival by both my tour guide and hotel staff that walking was safe. I felt safe. There is one restaurant across the street (literally steps away) and a convenience store if you don't want to venture out too far. Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Topkapi Palace etc. were also within walking distance. Also, Arasta Bazaar (spelling) was within walking distance. I stayed in room 503 which is on the opposite side (the side without the elevator), and I panicked but despite the room number it was only one flight of steps up, and they took my suitcase up for me. The bed and room were ok no complaints there. Considering the cost, it was sufficient. Breakfast was included- selection reasonable but I still ordered an omelette (westerner lol) The only complaint was that there is a train line behind the hotel and the train woke me up twice. But this only happened one night. Not sure the regularity of the train in that area. The room on the other side I imagine would not have this issue.
The reason that I write this view is mainly to telling about the last minute.com secret deal. We got sold !!! It was tricky!!! It said 4 stars hotel, but it's look likely 2 stars or no ... The price isn't lowest. You could book the same hotel at same price in booking.com or others. However, I recommend to book through the antis hotel official website if you book at last minute. Because I found it 20% cheaper than the price of last minute.com website. So I will never fall in the trap of lastminute.com anymore !!! As regarding to antis hotel, we stayed at the room 104 for one night. The location is ok. Near blue mosque but not center. It take 15-20 minutes to metro station. Room is ancient style and small with simple amenities. The worse point is the wall is thin, so you could hear sound from anywhere when there are people talking or praying. Plus, there is train stops right outside of room window. Very noise at night for some times when there is train pass through !!! But its quiet in the morning. Kind of surprise ! At least bathroom is ok and clean. But towels are old with stain marks. Staff is friendly who service breakfast. I read that the view is beautiful from rooftop restaurant of hotel. However, I didn't have time to take a look unfortunately.
I would recommend staying at Antis Hotel for its great location. It's close to all the important sights like Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Topkapi Palace, etc. Everything is within 5-10 mins walking distance. Staff is very friendly (Sezer was a friendly staff and helpful). Hotel price is definitely value for money. Hotel terrace has a great view. Although, I didn't have good wifi connectivity, they should fix that for sure.
All is good. The staff is friendly, helpful and generous for giving free cold water or fixing up anything in your room. The visitors are multicultural, -national. Everyone speaks English. Lightning and BBQ on the rooftop were off all the time - no one used them. Smoking in prohibited inside the building but is not on the rooftop. A magnificent view on the Blue Mosque from the rooftop, air conditioning in work. Recommend it to everyone.
The best thing about our stay in this hotel is the great friendly staff, very helpful and cooperative to everything we asked for. Big thanks to everyone! Good location, walking distance to Blue Mosque, and nearby restaurants.
perfect location in Sultanment, 3 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia and beside restaurants, travel agencies, stores. View from the room is amazing. My side was the Marmara sea. Staff are nice but sometimes confused. I tried to extend my stay and I already talked to one front office staff then when I went to pay, they said they did not know about it (?)...it got resolved but I hope they will pay attention.
We arrived at the Antis hotel tired after a long taxi ride from sabiha airport (although i suspect the taxi driver was going in circles- tip: prebook your transfer) It is in a small narrow street but when we entered we were warmly welcomed by Ercan(?) and although there was a problem with our booking (that was not the hotels fault) he immediately offered us a room to rest in and then sort things out. Our stay was a pleasurable one and we would definitely consider staying there again. The staff were extremely kind and friendly, always willing to help and very courteous. The rooms were exaclty as shown in the photos, clean and spacious; with daily cleaning and toiletries. The hotel offered a traditional turkish breakfast of hot drinks, cold meats, breads, jams, salad items, cheese and some warm items. Although the hotel is in a quiet narrow street, it is extremely close to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace and the Sultanahmet tram stop. We traveled with two children (youngest 6 yrs) and we walked everywhere or took the tram. Overall, i definitely recommend staying here if what you're after is a clean, warm, comfortable room with good wifi that is close to all the top tourist attractions. A special thank you to sezer (?) too for the Istanbulkart. thanks
You will love this hotel. It has perfect location in beautiful, old and authentic Sultan Ahmet area. Rooms are clean and quite, stuff is great, always ready to help. I will come back again in this hotel for sure.
