Reviewed 2 December 2012

Great location, great stuff, great atmosphere. I can recomment this (how Tan calls it) HOUSE to everybody. We stayed 3 nights. Room was little bit smaller, but enought for us. Anyway we spent there just the night. Every room has clean bathroom. Breakfast was nice (with everything, cookies, egg bread, eggs, vegetables, sweets, coffee, tea). Stuff was nice and helpful (thanks Tan). They could answer our questions. Told us where to do and what to see and on the other hand how not to be cheated..... So great atmospere. Thanks..:))))
Next to the anitique house is great fish restaurant (MOSTRA) - you have to try it. Really nice view (you can see Marmara sea) and during the summer and nice weather you can sit on terrace, fresh fishes, nice atmosphere and really nice stuff, you also can get know the owners, who are really nice.

Have a nice time there

The room we had was very small but that was kind of reflected in the price. Can't really complain. The staff (only 2 men and a lady preparing breakfast and possibly tidying up the rooms) were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful with pastry, eggy fried bread, boiled eggs, fruit, salad and various kinds of spread. What's best about this small hotel is its location. It's in a quiet location but very close to Blue Mosque, about 10 minutes walk. Hagia Sofia, Top Kapi Palace, Basilica Cistern are all within walking distance. There are loads of restaurants in the neighbourhood. And even a Turkish bath, hamam, which we tried! Yes, for budget travellers, we would recommend this hotel.

I stayed in Antique House for three nights. Its situated in the very heart of Instanbul, in a more peaceful part of the old town. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You feel more like visiting friends than staying in a hotel. Breakfasts are very tasty and the rooms are really clean. If I'm in Istanbul again, I will definitely choose Antique.

We had an excellent stay at Antique House. The small, friendly and clean hotel is in a nice, quite neighbourhood (except for the calls for prayer from the nearby mosques, of course) close to attractions like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Basilica Cistern.

Breakfast is not impressive, but adequate, and it can be enjoyed on the roof top terrace with a sea view.

Minor drawbacks: The bed in our room (no. 18) needed a new mattress, and after several hours of heavy rain it began dripping from the ceiling near the window.

We stayed here 4 nights and would definitely recommend as a budget option in Istanbul. It is worth staying in Sultanahmet for your first trip to Istanbul as it is so near to many of the most famous attractions, although if we go back for a second time we would probably stay in a less touristy area. However Antique House is not on the main tourist drag and there were no issues with noise or anything. It is close to the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. It is also very close to the Sea of Marmara, and on a morning you can take your simple but plentiful turkish breakfast up to the roof terrace for sea views - definitely recommended. The rooms are small but clean and well functioning. The owners are friendly and very helpful.

We stayed 6 days in the hotel. We had a very nice welcome, the hotel is well located (right behind the Blue Mosque & close to tram stations). The staff is very friendly and we loved the view onto the Marmara sea from the roof terrace.
Teşekkür ederim! :-)
