4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Excellent location with close amenities and quite near the main tourist attractions. Very clean and pleasant hotel with polite staff. I'd recommend to anyone who wants to stay in a place where you feel at home.

polite and helpful staff clean room Breakfast was good room was clean Staff warm and helpful When ı came to the Antis front desk person arrange everthing they were offer welcome drink and showed me everything on the map about Sultanahmet museums When I come back to istanbul definetly I'll stay Antis Hotel

During my stay i didn't feel comfortable at all the bed very small i asked for bed for baby they didn't respond to my request the front desk staff is not so good specially one guy hes always listening music and watching football with high volume i didn't remember his name the safe first day the breakfast is good second day there is no breakfast they said there not much people in the hotel so we cant put breakfast so they gave me two plate with some cheese and egg and jam this the first time happened with me during my travels to any country , i will not stay in such hotel any more for sure , and the location is far from sultan Ahmed and the place is not quiet .

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't​any 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 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 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 website. So I will never fall in the trap of 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 (?) got resolved but I hope they will pay attention.
