City center hotel in the former Syrian President house. It has been sympathetically restored, with modern touches such as an elevator. Original floor throughout and handmade carpets. Very high quality finishing everywhere. Especially thankful for the car parking attendant who was very helpful with directions and advice. They don't have private parking, but the attendant will park your car in... More

This is a lovely little hotel - lots of character and history in the building itself. However, not all rooms are created equal, so if you're staying for a while, ask for a room with windows so you can get some fresh air. I did this after spending a few restless nights in a windowless, very small room and the... More

A great mix of helpful efficiency and the atmosphere of historical Turkey. The courtyard restaurant with the ceiling that opens is amazing, providing natural cooling air, very welcome in the mid August heat. Couldn't fault the staff, who were helpful and attentive. The breakfast variety was brilliant, especially for a smallish hotel, and the evening meals were exceptional in quality... More

The wife and I went to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. We hired a car from the airport and had to find the place late at night. Not easy to find! The location of the hotel is perfect. It is right on the edge of town, close to quite a few attractions. The building is awesome and the rooms of... More

This hotel really is a pleasure to visit! It is in a beautiful restored old house and has been very tastefully refurbished. We had a very nice large room, well decorated and with very large towels in the bathroom - that is a nice change! There is a nice courtyard breakfast area with friendly and helpful staff. We also visited... More

Found this Hotel by chance as it is quite well hidden with a small discreet entrance. The staff at check in were very proficient and everything was completed in minutes. The room was excellent and well appointed with a small balcony and even though it looked out over the street it was very quiet. The bed was comfortable and sheets... More

Expensive for what it is. Centrally located which is it's major plus. Rooms the size of closest sand very dark. Apparently you can rectify this by asking for a room with a balcony. I wasn't aware of this. Also a plus - the Liwan has a restaurant, which a lot of hotels in Antakya lack. They'll serve breakfast but that's... More
