If you are looking for a beautiful hotel with an historic vibe, the Liwan is for you. Although the location is not attractive (narrow street with lots of construction), the staff was very helpful and the rooms were comfortable.

Exceptional experience. When the building is not designed originally as a hotel, the expectations are not the same. The rooms are small; as close as you can be in a cascade alive (being spoiled American). mainly no windows in most rooms, no noise insulation through the doors. Some windows that look down to the restaurant area. Clean old fashion rooms.... More

A former embassy building, the Liwan Hotel is a good choice for those seeking a place reminiscent of the bourgeois splendor of Hatay or simply a clean, comfortable and friendly place with great staff. The large and pleasant breakfast room is a pleasant inner courtyard, and the breakfast selection is excellent. We had easy WIFI access as well as valet... More

Main base to see St Peter Cave Church, The Liwan Hotel in Antakya, Turkey which used to be the residence of the First President of Syria, Subhi Bay Barakat al-Khalidi, but is now part of Turkey. The former Presidential Residence was built in 1902 and is now a hotel. The real stone balcony is awsome. Many antiques in the hotel... More

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
