    Location 8.58 /10

    The Antea Palace is located in the very district of Sultanahmet, where Istanbul's main monuments are situated. Allow for around a ten-minute walk to go and visit them. They can also be reached by taxi, but there is often a lot of traffic in the old town.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    The 58 "standard" rooms are decent, but some things need to be looked at. The bedding is not of a very good quality, and the television doesn't work very well. The bathroom is not clean: the hospitality products are a little outdated, and the rims of the bathtub leave a lot to be desired. The rooms are equipped with a mini-bar, central air conditioning and a direct telephone line for international calls. 2 suites are also available, but they are similar to the standard rooms in terms of their comfort and facilities. The only difference is the fact that they have a double bed and two single beds. 24-hour room service.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    Built in 1993 and renovated in 2006, the Amber hotel changed its name and became the Best Western Antea Palace in November 2007. As soon as you enter the building, you will be delighted by the impressive spaces, the blue and white earthenware that decorates the columns and the walls, the lamps, and the aquarium in the centre of the patio that opens onto the lobby bar. The restaurant room is located behind it. The whole place is marked by quite a cold atmosphere, added to the fact that you have the impression of being far away from everything, cut off from the world (additionally, the type of district where the hotel is situated is a no man's land). The rooms are adequate, but nothing more. Finally, the sauna and Turkish bath are far from being in a good condition, and the position of the billiard table in the room nearby, without a window or any decoration, is not very attractive.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The main restaurant, where you can have a buffet breakfast, has been arranged in a pleasant setting, although the decor remains classical. However, the space is quite limited (the number of tables does not really correspond to the number of rooms, although it is unlikely that all of the guests will take their measl at the same time). The air conditioning is a little strong. Breakfast is served between 7.00 am and 10.30 am and lunch and dinner are offered a la carte between 11.30 am and 3.00 pm and 7.00 pm and 11.00 pm.

    To know

    The hotel was built in the 19th Century, just like the Ottoman houses. The architecture and the organisation of the rooms are both traditional; even the earthenware that dresses the walls and the columns is the same colour as that which can be found within the famous Blue Mosque.

      A quiet, discreet little place at the heart of the old town, the Daphne guarantees a relaxing stay in one of the most charming parts of the city.
      In terms of design, the decor here is rather old-fashioned and never too busy. The hotel climbs up towards the Blue Mosque, its entrance met with cobbled streets that look truly magical when lit up at night.
      It's a good choice for those travelling as a couple.

      • Value for money 7.06
      • Location 9.58

      The Arena hotel is nestled in the little streets leading up to the old town, behind the Blue Mosque, and is a real flashback to the atmosphere of Istanbul's past.
      It is a timeless hotel with an inescapably intimate feel thanks to its past as a private residence. The ambience is relaxed and the staff welcoming. Many of the visitors here are foreign, and guests can often be seen with their noses in books.
      This is a boutique hotel that has stayed true to its word when it comes to delivering luxury, while also adding a family feel and a hint of preserved traditions.
      What is more, the only noise to be heard (although it is quite some noise at that!) is the muezzin's call to prayer from the Blue Mosque that stands at the top of the hill.

      • Location 9.44

      The Golden Horn Sultanahmet is stylish but suffers from too much decor. Nevertheless, it does offer the considerable advantages of a very favourable location, fine panoramic views from its rooftop terrace, and a few ground floor guest rooms suitable for guests with reduced mobility.
      The standard rooms are fine for couples but if you are bringing your children you might find them a bit cramped. In this case, you'll be best off opting for rooms in the superior category, which are more spacious and more appropriately designed to the occasion.

      • Location 3.0

      As its name indicates, the Sumahan on the Water is a little world on the water. Inside, it displays a balance of lines and shapes that create a modern style and is never cold. This is a bit of a surprise given the exterior aspect of the building, which management wanted to keep as nondescript as possible.
      This effort to go unnoticed speaks of the attention afforded to the guests, in terms of welcome, service, and cuisine. The Sumahan blends luxury and attention to detail together with know-how, efficiency, good taste, and quality.
      It also commands one of the finest views of the Bosphorus there is. It really is in a league of its own.
