Excellent hotel in the old city. The decor is very Victorian and goes with the 'Palace' in the property's name - truly royal. The swimming pool is more like a a big tub in the basement; and the steam and sauna were hardly in use when we stayed. The buffet breakfast has a good spread. The wi-fi signal is strong... More

The hotel had many facilities like Sauna, Steam, Swimming pool and Turkish bath. The breakfast had a wide variety of items to chose from. The rooms were smaller than expected but were comfortable. A major drawback of this place was its location from the tramway. We had to walk uphill to reach places of interest or Sultanahmet tramway. Overall a... More

I've divided my review into firstly the hotel and secondly how to get there on public transport and a few tips on things I found useful during my stay. The positives: - nice decor in the room and hotel in general with a luxurious touch and a grand style, although perhaps a little tired here and there - Under 10... More

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the Hotel manager's assistant, the very courteous and pleasant "Urzu". She advised that they were overbooked and very politely asked if we would agree to relocate to a very nearby hotel for 2 nights, where we would be offered a mini-suite, in exchange for 2 free dinners and an upgrade to a suite-type...

The rooms are clean, pleasant, and decently-appointed, with well-stocked bathrooms. The breakfast buffet is rather copious and served in a comfortable and opulent space. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Most tourist sites, as others have mentioned, are within a 1/2 hour walk; however, the public transportation is not close by, so if you plan on heading out in the... More

Best Western Antea Palace Hotel is very conveniently located for sightseeing in the old city of Istanbul. Most of the major tourist sites are within 20 - 30 minutes of walking. The hotel is a good value for the money!

After staying for 2 nights in a terrible hotel in Istanbul (see review of Hotel Tulip House) and having to move to another hotel, my partner and I chose the Best Western Antea Palace. We were warmly welcomed by Arzu who was such a pleasure to deal with, not only during check-in but for the duration of our stay. The... More
