“There has to be something better in Antalya.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2010

If you have to deal with the older bloke, you could get ripped off. According to him, there isn't a Hava bus to the airport. So you should pay him 80 TL to have his mate drive you. However, there is a Hava bus for 10 TL. If you leave the old town by the clock tower, going left (stay of the right near the sea) and walk up until you're opposite the new shopping center. There's a kiosk. Beyond that, is a pull-over by a round fountain. The bus leaves every hour on the hour.

The shower and bath weren't clean. For backpackers looking to socialize, that ambiance just isn't there. And unfortunately I stayed there twice. I don't think the food was clean either. Both times I caught a gastric souvenir.

Lonely Planet really shouldn't have recommended that place. I met another traveller who was waiting for the post office to open (Ramadan time) so he could send his post, then finally escape that pension.

It's located in a very nice area between the old town and the sea where the yacht harbor is. It provides good foods, good service from friendly yet english speaking staffs, you'll just be treated like family.

The Sabah Pansiyon is well located inside the old city of Antalya, near the Mediterranean Sea (though not near a beach). Our room was fine (a bit small, but very clean, with an excellent shower). There's a kiddie pool at the hotel, although we never saw anyone using it.

The staff, while not unpleasant, do not go out of their way to help you out and are not the friendliest people. The breakfast was pretty limited (bread, cheese, olives, cucumbers) and wasn't great.

All in all, it's not the greatest place in the world, although we were satisfied during our stay.

Sabah pension is conveniently located in the old city, but there are other options that should be explored. It was not what the guide books and reviews had led us to believe. The staff were not friendly.

Even though we had booked directly with them (and they confirmed by email) they seemed to have no record of this and wanted to up their price when we arrived. The room we were given initially was of poor quality. The bathroom was seriously in need of a clean - the toilet bowl was black. When we objected we were offered another room which was small but acceptable. The bread for breakfast on the first day was stale. The following morning breakfast was okay.

Not up to the standard of other pensions we have stayed at in Turkey. Would not stay there again or recommend it to others.

Even though my evening arrival was delayed considerably by a road closure it was no problem for the Sabah family. They welcomed me into a wonderfully appointed room overlooking the garden courtyard. The location is excellent and the food at the restaurant was as well. This pension balances their warm family hospitality with a great place to interact with other travelers. They are able to help set up tours (but not pushy) and eager to help make your stay more pleasurable in any way they can. The included breakfast is a wonderful spread that can be enjoyed from the sunny garden. You can actually get seconds on tea which is hard to come by at some of the places I've stayed! The rooms were very clean and charming with alcoved windows overlooking the courtyard. This pension is also located near the large & beautiful public park on the shores of the Medittaranean. The sites of Antalya are all within easy walking distance and you can catch public transportation just outside of the main gate at the end of the road.

Fantastic location in the middle of the old town, this is a good value hotel with a decent restaurant. We looked a selection of rooms and some were most definitely better than others so I recommend you do the same. Ou room was clean and well appointed. Staff were accommodating and helpful (if a bit standoffish). We ate in the hotel in the evening and I was impressed with the quality of the food.
