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!

Same goes with the gym the mirror reflection makes it look like... More

This hotel is named Antea Palace and its internal decor justifies its name. I chose to spend an extra quid to stay with an international franchise partially because I wanted to avoid local hotels as my previous stay in the Taksim area was not the most memorable one, the second its location in the Sultanahmet area which has most of...

The breakfasts were full of interesting Turkish delights and... More
