I spent the period from April 10 to April 19, 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Antalya. From my room (115) only the hotel a swimming pool and street stand between me and the magnificent and endless Mediterranean view.
The Crown Plaza Antalya was extremely unique and pleasant experience to me. Checking in at the reception was done literally in no time. The team was so friendly and efficient.
The room was not quite large, nevertheless it was quite clean, adequate, and comfortable. Internet was good. In addition to the direct and effortless wifi connection to my laptop, I found in the key card folder two access details which I used for connecting my smartphone and tablet to the internet 24/7. Such a luxury and convenience for a guy like me trying to keep in touch with the office work back in Central Asia, while dealing with a tight conference schedule at the hotel the same time. Thanks to Aliye Polat, the Cleaner, my room was well attended to throughout my stay in terms of cleanliness and tidiness.
As I have to take six flights from Asmara, Eritrea – where I was on short vacation, to arrive to Antalya for this global conference, my luggage eventually got lost somewhere on the way. The “guest relations” at the hotel, however, did a wonderful job. Thanks fully goes to Aliye and Elena, within a very short time, my luggage was located and delivered to my room in the hotel. Aliye and Elena were tirelessly and with big smiles attending to our endless requests including changing of ticket bookings, arranging hotels in Istanbul for my next stopover, and providing advice and assistance on daily basis on various issues, some of them may not be even within their JDs, but they did all that in a completely friendly and efficient manner.
The food was great and quite diversified to our taste, also provided in a very pleasant and professional way. I enjoyed the authentic Turkish dishes, tea and coffee, the same way I did to the other western and Middle East varieties.
The hotel location is amazing, and the transport by bus or taxi is just few minutes to the old city center.
The global conference which brought together over 50 participants for a full week activities and various day and night/ indoor and outdoor events, was a complete success and prove to the efficiency of the hotel in hosting and facilitating such big conferences.
Generally speaking, the Crown Plaza Antalya is proved to be a real home away from home for me, and no doubt it will be my first choice in my future visits.
