Clean, but not best value for money.Posted Oct 18, 2013
Good place to lay your head, but not much more. Staff weren't very friendly and breakfast was tasteless. Room, linen and bathroom was clean. Very basic.

Close to most historical sites.Posted Oct 17, 2013
Pros: Location, nice variety of breakfast choices, friendly and and helpful staff in the breakfast room, relaxed atmosphere.
Cons: The shower door came off but was smartly fixed and the shower leaked, so some maintenance work wouldn't go amiss.
Location: The location was great .easy walking distance to Blue Mosque, Haggai Sofia. the citerns and lots of nice restaurants at your doorstep.
We enjoyed the area we were staying in but wouldn't recommend to a friend as the call to prayer at 6am right outside our window was a bit much after 8 nights.

Very convenient to major sightsPosted Oct 12, 2013
Pros: Convenience to sights in Istanbul
Location: Within a few minutes walk of the Sofia Mosque and many other buildings of major interest
Backs onto a railway but, as apparently currently not in use, no noise problem. Some noise from street. Breakfast included but rather poor quality.

Great Cozy HotelPosted Sep 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
Service was Great. Hotel was clean, Breakfast was really good and complete. Its next to the railroad, but never bothered us at all.But what definetly is the best is location and views from hotel terrace.

Worst Customer Service EverPosted Sep 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
As a woman traveling alone I was already a little bit apprehensive about going into the city for my 32 hour layover in Istanbul. After walking from the metro stop with my heavy bag and finally finding the hotel, I was looking forward to putting my stuff down and checking in. When I arrived a couple was negotiating with the receptionist to check out early. I was concerned about what might be wrong with the hotel I was about to check in to so I asked them what the problem was. Turns out it was something about their travel agent. The receptionst then proceeded to berate me for asking them this question. He called me "unkindly," said he didn't know why I would act that way, then spent several minutes making a show of shuffling his papers around while I was standing in front of him still waiting to check in. I told him he was making me feel very uncomfortable, to which he responded by yelling at me some more. By that point I was in tears because I was so upset and frustrated. I would have left immediately but I had unfortunately already paid in full and thought it might be difficult to find another room on such short notice. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

I highly recommend this hotelPosted Aug 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel had been recommended to me by a friend who had stayed there about a month prior to us. The hotel staff greeted us as we arrived, with glasses of cold drinks and immediately took the baggage to our room. The room was on the top floor, had a beautiful view of the harbor and the ships passing by, and outside the room on the balcony of the restaurant was a beautiful view of the Blue Mosque. There were train tracks on one side of the hotel but we were not disturbed at all by train noise. The breakfast was buffet style and had a wonderful selection of pastries, cheeses and deli meats, fruits, cereal and yogurt. It is in a great location for walking around and touring the Sultanahmet area. I would definitely stay there again.

Very Good HotelPosted Aug 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is one small but very well located hotel in the middle of the old city within close proximity to most famous landmarks in Istanbul. We had some difficulties finding the hotel first time because it is located in a very narrow street so if you are planning to drive be prepared to navigate through some very tight spots. Good news for travellers with car is that there is parking near the hotel which you can use. The hotel itself look modern from outside. The staff was very friendly. The check-in process was quick and efficient and we were taken to our rooms in no time. The rooms were adequate size. The room and bathroom were very clean. There is small LCD TV and a safe big enough to accommodate 15” laptop. The room is air-conditioned and we had two single beds in our (despite that we booked double bed) but that was easily solved by pushing the two beds close to each-other. Our room was facing the rail or tram line which looked very busy but at night, with windows shut it did not disturbed us at all. The only thing which needed update was the carpet as it looked a touch tired with some stains on it. Breakfast was adequate. There was a good variety of food and drinks. Checkout service was also quick and efficient. Overall it was a great hotel and I am happy to recommend it.

Great Hotel in Wonderful PositionPosted Jul 13, 2013
Pros: Position, friendly staff, good b/fast (included) and the fantastic roof terrace where you can have a drink and enjoy the amazing views.
Cons: No pool!!
Location: In old Sultanahmet within easy walking distance to Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, Hagia Sofia etc. Small bazaar very nearby - quality goods, great prices.
I stayed at the Antis in May and was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived (after booking through Expedia) to find that it is a really lovely little hotel in a fantastic location. Walking distance to the major attractions along cobbled streets full of history and atmosphere. There is a small travel agent next door that arranged all our tours/airport shuttle at great prices (you can negotiate) and plenty of great eateries within easy walking. I booked family members to stay there last week (at their request) and they loved the hotel - thanked me for my great choice! I am going back there next month with another friend. TIP: The rooms are small so if you are travelling with a friend might be better to have separate rooms as we are doing next month. The price is so good, it is worth it.
