I stayed in Antea Hotel for three nights with my husband,the room was very nice and clean.The staff is polite and helpfull.Also we liked the breakfast and meals.The hotel is very near to Sultanahmet Square.Thank you for your hospitality

As part of my Delta Vacation package, this hotel was included. Lobby was good, elevator was small, room was adequate. I think the shower area was small for me. Breakfast was great! And I was not even expecting breakfast. I hope I called in earlier to schedule a coach hotel pickup. I paid TL 100 for taxi from Istanbul airport to the hotel. And it only cost me EUR 7 for a shuttle pick up from this airport. It is not a fancy hotel, it is value for money. It is a good 15-20 minute walk to the metro. It is not really in the city center. It is in the middle or a residential area. I was entertained by the chubby cats. I love them.

Had an amazing stay, the hotel is located ideally in the old city just a short walk to the many attractions of Istanbul, the staff were professional, helpful and friendly especially Yunus who helped us out with some booking issues. The room we stayed at was perfect for the price, clean and tidy and included complementary tea and coffee. Would definitely recommend this hotel to my family and friends.

Thank you very much for the warm welcome and for the great service during my Stay. First time visiting Turkey and it was a great experience, starting with the hotel which was located near the old area of Istanbul, walking distance to the most popular places to visit, 10-15 minutes walk, safe neighborhood and very kind people around. Decent hotel, awesomeeeee staff and very accommodating, specially Yunus very well acknowledged, very helpful and thanks to him i was able to visit some beautiful places. The room was clean, the bed very comfortable and i had one of the rooms with the best view. Loved the experience and will definitely go back! Thanks and all the best, Elisa :)

BW Antea Palace is a good Value for Money hotel. Well loacted in the old city, it is about 15 min walk to the Blue Mosque. They upgraded our room on arrival which meant a bigger room than what we had booked. The breakfast was very nice and had a nice assortment of cheeses and dried and fresh fruits in addition to the usual spread. The front desk was very helpful (especially Arzoo), and advised us on various options. We also went for dinner in one of the restaurants under the Gallata bridge on their advice, and this included a free pick up and drop from the hotel which was very convenient. All in all, a good value for money stay.

if you want to be near to old area of Istanbul it can be good otherwise it can't get good point because it's far to public transportation and in a weird place. But nice staffs try to help you aside the poor facilities. free but terribly low speed internet. breakfast is not bad. bathroom is not that clean that you expect. some rooms are beside a crowded and noisy high school.

Have just spent a 7-day stay at this property where all in all, I can say it was a positive experience. It all started on the wrong foot where upon check in we were allocated a standard twin room with two extra beds fitted in, rather than a larger sized family room comprising appropriate space and sleeping facilities for four. Following some convincing we were however allocated the correct room type, following the first night. Breakfast is reasonably good, served by a very attentive team of staff. The level of housekeeping is generally good, even if bathrooms particularly the one in which we spent the first night, need attention. The indoor pool is way too small with spa prices being on the high side, so here we simply did not bother. The hotel itself is located 15mins walk away from the tram station, however once there, connectivity to all areas is very good. Ultimately, a word of thanks to the Team who constantly go out of their way to assist the guests, namely Yunus, Arzu, the young lady with the braids at breakfast and several others, for whom we have only words of praise. From our side, had we to return to Istanbul we will aim to stay in a different area, just for the sake of experiencing different places, however, we do not hesitate to recommend this property to prospective clients.

we were group of 10 passengers,the hotel was very bad, the location is so far from metro and bus station,so you have to use the taxi all time.the standard rooms are very small ,dirty hotel &breakfast was not on the terrace,it was in the lobby area,bad smell also

I stayed with my wife and 3 grown up boys at antea palace for 5 nights in September.our stay was very enjoyable.arzu who checked us in was smashing she went out of her way to make us comfortable. The rooms were fantastic and the lobby and the breakfast were brilliant.The only downside is the walk up to the blue mosque up a hill.This takes around 5/10 minutes. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anybody,you will be well looked after. 7 September 2017.

I have stayed twice at this hotel in the last two months. It has clean and comfortable, air-conditioned rooms, a good elevator, excellent views from its rooftop restaurant, free sauna, pool and for extra payment - massage facilities. It has a fairly decent bar. The staff are helpful and eager to arrange your tours and transport at reasonable rates. A single room was Euro 80 per night, excellent breakfast included. The hotel is not very easy to approach by car but for walking it is ideally situated, Topkapi and Hagia Sofia are around 20 minutes on foot. A fresh fruit market nearby is not to be missed nor the seafront.
