“Fantastic Old Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The wonderful old Ottaman style houses are a must to see in Kaleici, the tiny streets, the old and the renovated, all absolutley amazing.
I loved the choice of restuarants and the small marina, a wonderful place for a relaxing holiday.

“An absolute must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We were fortunate enough to stay in Kaleici. It was just wonderful.... So many shops and restaurants and lovely lane ways and things to see and do. We spent about seven hours just exploring here. Most major attractions are within walking distance including the port. Can't imagine visiting Antalya and staying anywhere else..... Gave a real sense of what it must have been like.... Just lovely

“great atmosphere in Kaleici”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

great great area for walking, shopping and dining. I highly recommend to stay at least one whole day just inside the old city walls in Kaleici. Peaceful and charming historic area, I love to stay here.

“Has that special charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Very extensive upgrading of the old properties. All being carried out to very specific regulations to preserve the history and atmosphere. Wander the narrow streets, marvel at the design of the buildings. Every turn of a corner brings more delights. Cafes, restaurants, bars, small hotels, pensions and tourist shops abound. No tourist tat here....genuine souvenirs, carpets and general stores welcome you. Once seen, forever smitten!
