Reviewed 25 August 2014

The hotel is a number of buildings around a quiet courtyard. The room had all the modern amenities, with an ok wifi signal - not that strong, but it generally worked, and I've had worse. There are two gorgeous restaurants set around the courtyards downstairs. We tried one, and it was a bit pricey for what we got relative to others in the area. The setting is lovely, however. Overall, we recommend the Tuvana as well as a visit to Antalya.

We moved here after a problem with our initial hotel and so glad we did. The check in was quick and staff were friendly. My room was in the main building and was very clean with great air con and comfy bed. The pool is great and has a terrace next to it where we had some drinks and good which were lovely and again great service. My only criticism would be that it was noisy at nights but this is due to it's location in the old town so not really the hotels fault. Would definitely stay here in a heartbeat. Thanks for a lovely stay.

The Tuvana Hotel is a set of old Ottoman houses converted into a comfortable, modern boutique hotel. Although it’s got some rough spots, it does the charming boutique hotel pretty well.

The atmospheric hotel spans several buildings and areas in the historic neighborhood of Kaleiçi. From the newer bus station you can cab it about 25 mins, or take an infrequent tram. Kaleiçi is a good place to be based out of. It is mostly pedestranized and not tooo touristy, and is full of various restaurants, shoppes, bars, and some historical sites.

The front desk was efficient and friendly; they promptly checked me in and helped me transport my bags to the room. My 2nd floor room was in a section that led through the restaurant and had no elevator. The clean, decently furnished room was spacious enough, and bed was quite comfy. The free Wifi was fine, and the TV had several English language channels. There is also a small refrigerator. The bathroom is mostly decent, but it feels smaller than it is because the toilet is too close to the tub. However, there is a good amount of sink space.

Noise was somewhat of an issue; I could frequently hear conservation in the room next door. Also, the 430am call to prayer was very audible in the room.

I ate dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, Servaser. It’s got a romantic atmosphere, and the food was delicious. However, the service here needs much improvement. After I was served my food, I was pretty much ignored; the staff looked very overworked. I had to ask several times for my bill, and it took a very long time to actually settle it. Also, the hotel advertises a 10% discount at Servaser for guests; however, this does not apply to alcohol. This restriction would have been nice to know prior.

Fortunately, things were better at the included Turkish breakfast. There is a good variety of food, and I enjoyed the hot scrambled eggs.

Checking out was easy and quick. The staff was understanding when I came back after checkout because I left something in the room.

Although a few things are noticeably sub-standard, I would consider returning if I ever visited Antalya again.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room.

The hotel is nice, but not so elegant as they describe. The shower in my bedroom didn't work well and the floor was wet every time. The breakfast is quite fresh but not very tastefull. They don't offer sigara boregi for example. The swimming pool is little and nice but the restaurant in the garden is very expensive. The service is excelent.

This small exciting hotel is located in the heart if old town Antalia. Very elegant and nice. Our room was nice and spacious. Not much activities for kids, but very easy to reach the beach and other interesting activities. The restaurant is great..

Excellent hotel in the heart of the old town.

The hotel is a lovely refurbished building boasting a classic Turkish aristocratic feel.
We received excellent service and had a relaxing stay (there is a nice quite pool and garden courtyard for your enjoyment).
The hotel is conveniently located near the harbour and Hadrians gate.

Tucana hotel is a series of ottoman buildings, set down the back streets and not easy to find.
It is charming and very convenient to the harbour marina and the old city markets and bazaar.
The rooms are well appointed, but in summer the in-room air conditioning struggles to keep the rooms cool. However there is a pool and a bar set in the gardens. The restaurant is excellent for dinner with a great menu.
