We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in November. I was expecting us to be staying at a pension, but upon arrival my boyfriend surprised me by bringing us here! We stayed in a Deluxe Room and it was just fantastic! It was very clean and decorated so tastefully. We had a jacuzzi, mini bar, and all of those other cute amenities: nail file, shoe polish, loofah, emergency sewing kit, etc. It is located in Old Town Kaleici, which is THE place to stay when in Antalya! The breakfast was by far the largest spread I've seen in my 2 1/2 months in Turkey; there was an amazing quiche the first morning we were there. Okay, so time to reveal why I caution the reader:
Our room was in the main building, the same one that Seraser is located in and our room (901) had a view of their other restaurant, Il Vicino (sp?). While we actually didn't hear any noise from Seraser (possibly due to it being low season and there were few people eating there each night), we could clearly hear the music from Il Vicino. The first two nights, we left the room around 7ish, and the music had already started, but when we returned after 11:30 pm, the music was over. However, on our last night, we had a 6:45 am flight the next morning. We ate an early dinner and were back in the room around 8:30 pm to pack and go to sleep early since we had to be up at 4:30 am. We had already figured out that Il Vicino played the same songs over and over but that last night, something must have gone wrong and I swear on my life, they played the SAME song OVER and OVER again. We could clearly hear the same song repeated from 8:30 until they closed at 11:30. We even tried to turn the tv on for a while to block out the noise, but you could still hear it! There was no way we were able to sleep until they closed. If you're someone who needs or wants to go to sleep earlier than 11:30, don't choose this building! And if you stay during the high season, the music may continue later. It's honestly crazy to me that the hotel would ask people to pay this much for a deluxe room and have to deal with that kind of noise!
On a more positive note, even if you decide not to stay here, I encourage you to eat at both of these restaurants during your stay in Antalya. At Seraser. I highly recommend the beef carpaccio as a starter!!!! For a main, the duck confit, lamb or bonsfer. I would stay away from the sea bass wrapped in wine leaves, as the stem from the wine leaves was difficult to chew through and I found myself pulling out 2 bones and several fish scales from my mouth. Also, one night when there was only 1 other couple eating, we wanted to sit at a cute 4 top, and the waiter made a really annoyed face at us for not choosing a 2 top. Seeing as no one else came in after us and there were plenty of other tables, I don't know why it was a problem.
