Reviewed 17 September 2013

We stayed at Antik for a second time at the end of a wonderful Fez Travel tour of Turkey. The staff were most attentive and we enjoyed staying in a Junior Suite for the three nights. The location is excellent. I hope the historic old Cisterna restaurant opens again - it would have been great to enjoy an evening in that venue - but the rooftop restaurant is very good with nice food and excellent sea views.

Room Tip: Rooms are small, so go for the Junior Suite if you can get a good deal.

Very good hotel, wonderful location, kind and competent staff. My husband and I were very lucky: we had a fantastic room. Our friends complained because their room was too small, but, everything considered, it was a satisfying experience.

The hotel is situated near the university of Istanbul in the old part/Sultanhamet. It takes 20 minutes to on foot to reach The blue Mosque. The hall of the hotel is very rich and well furnished. Staff speak English quite well.
I stayed in this hotel twice. The first time I was given an ordinary room on the second floor. It was clean and well equipped. Unfortunately it was near the elevator so a bit too noisy. The walls anyway are thin and you can easily hear the flush of your neighbour's bathroom. The second time I was given a suite, so the room was bigger than the first I had and more confortable. There was even a Jacuzzi! The roo was at the end of the corridor on the first floor and it was not noisy. Meals are served at the top floor where you can see the Marmara sea and some minarets of the Blue Mosque! a great view! We only had breakfast. There were plenty of salty and sweet things.

Room Tip: Ask for a room far from the elevator!

Fantastic location just a few minutes from the tram station (which is the best means of transport for visiting Istanbul). All the attractions in the old town can be visited by foot from the hotel and the Grand bazar is just a 5-minute walk. Family room which offers privacy for the parents and the children due to the separation of the 2 bedrooms and the fact that each one has it's own WC / wash basin. Breakfast on the roof is superb and a wonderful start to the day.
Only 2 drawbacks, the family room have absolutely no view. Large room but only 1 small window which overlooks an internal courtyard. In addition, the hotel restaurant is very expensive and the menu non-inspiring.

I don't know whether this applies to all hotels in Turkey. We booked a Junior Suite so that we would have a place to sit and talk privately with our granddaughter who we hadn't seen for two years. When she arrived she was told that she was not allowed to go to our room so we went downstairs to collect her. Much to our surprise we were chased to the lift and very loudly and rudely told that we could vist her in the foyer but not in our room. I found their approach very upsetting and most disrespectful. There is nothing anywhere in the hotel information about this rule. It certainly spoiled an occasion that was meant to be a joyful reunion. We took our granddaughter to our room, but this caused more problems. We are in our late 70s - hardly party animals set to wreck the place!

Our stay in the hotel apart from that horrible incident has been quite satisfactory.

I am very upset that you amd your family faced this kind of moments during your stay. The reson is maybe reception personnel did not quiet understand your request. There was some kind of misunderstanding for sure. Because other case they would let your granddaughter to go with you to your room.

Please feel free to contact me anytime in futurs for any assitance. I am guest relations manager nd would be glad to help you. I am sorry I could not meet you in person as I was away for a while.

Located within walking distance from the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and other relevant places in town. Staff are always ready to assist. Hotel management is flexible when it comes to early check in or late check out. Rooms are not very big, but still very comfortable. For the price of 50 to 80 EUR per night, one can't expect much better service. If you are alone, or a couple, and not to choosy, don't hesitate, go there. And for the nice dinner (business or romantic), the hotel was built on top of the Roman water tank, which was converted to an exceptionally beautiful place for dinners or parties.

Room Tip: Any room us a good one. Just make sure that the WiFi signal is strong enough before you accept the r...

The location is great, a mere 10 minute walk to the grand bazzar, a great hammas, and a 15 minute walk to the Hagia sophia and blue mosque. Although, during my stay (in July 2013) there was some construction occurring nearby, the view of the bay from the upper level restaurants and upper level rooms is breath taking. The hotels service is amazing, very hospitable, upon our arrival we were greeted by Mrs. Alizade, who was incredibly helpful and provided us with great tips about this wonderful city. This hotel is great if you are a family traveling together, our family room was large and had two bathrooms and was quite affordable. Overall a great experience.
