“Excellent location, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

The location is by far the strongest feature of this hotel. The amenities are adequate, without being great. The spa/sauna etc., which has several free services, is a nice bonus. The staff was friendly and attentive. The rooms are small but not obscenely so. Easy access to the most famous landmarks and the tram are HUGE positives.

Room Tip: If you plan on having a kid with you in the room, it may be worth it to get the triple room.

Very good location, in the historical center of the city and very close to 2 tram stations. Extremely nice and friendly staff, great view from the terrace, fast wi-fi. Very clean and comfortable hotel.

Room Tip: It's better to chose rooms looking to the back side to avoid street noise in the early morning.

A wonderful hotel, ideally situated for site-seeing around Sultanahmet, the tram station is half a minute away, and if you feel like walking the Grand Bazaar is 5 minutes away, Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosk are 10 minutes away and the Top Kapi palace is 15-20 minutes away.
The hotel itself has a very helpful front desk, manned around the clock, and the people were very pleasant and pointed us in the right direction for our outings.
The only drawback was the relatively small room, which wasn't uncomfortable, but compared to the overall experience it was lacking.
Finally, there are spa facilities working 10am - 10 pm, which unfortunatelly I didn't manage to try, but seem like an ideal way to finish a long day of walking around.
Overall, an incredible place to stay giving good value for money. I will definitely be staying here again next time I am in Istanbul.

I had stayed at another hotel while on a business trip and then added on a couple of days at a hotel that was easier on the wallet. Hotel Antea was perfect - its clean, comfortable, well located and has some good amenities like a small, but nice to have pool. The front desk staff was knowledgable and helpful and the breakfast was fine. The Four Seasons this is not, but at the price we were able to get it was an excellent place to be. Literally a stone's throw from the Cemberlitas tram stop. Rooms are a little small - the average size in say Paris.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the square.

I would recommend anyone to stay in this Hotel.
The location is great only 5 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque and lots of other attractions.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is good value for money.
They do a really good breakfast. Also the indoor pool and a Turkish bath is a real bonus.
The hotel is a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing.

I stayed twice in early February. It is a pleasant small hotel with a good Turkish breakfast buffet and a small elegant free marble Hamam, plunge pool, steam and sauna. It is about 100m to the tram stop which takes you to the airport train or Galatea for the North shore of the Golden Horn. It is a very easy walk to all main tourist sites, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Grand Bazaar, Spice Market, boat docks to the Asiatic side, etc. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Front rooms overlook a small square which has the entrance to the 2nd largest Byzantine cistern in I...

A lovely friendly small hotel which is perfectly positioned for the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and
all the other places of interest, just a short walk. There are some lovely restaurants very close
to the hotel serving sumptuous food. The hotel facilities are excellent as is the breakfast.
We will definitely be coming back to this super hotel.
