“Wonderful location! Fantastic Owner and great service!”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

The owner of this hotel, Mustafa, is a fabulous resource as he gave me great advise and arranged my Turkish bath the last day of my trip in Turkey. The beds are the most comfortable in Turkey. The location is excellent near the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and the tram is within walking distance. There are good restaurants nearby and shopping is great for tile work and rugs. There's not a lot of street noise and although the rooms are small, the hotel is affordable compared to some of the other hotels in the area. I thought the cleanliness was good. I felt safe in this hotel and slept well. This hotel is a really good deal and I recommend it. When I return to Istanbul, I will definitely want to stay here.

Room Tip: Corner suites are the best-I prefer the 2nd floor as there is a winding staircase. It's a small...

This outstanding B&B provides good value. We spent five nights there as guests earlier this month and hope to return for a final night before our flight out of Istanbul. The location, on the south side of Sultanahmet, is perfect for viewing the old city and its attractions. The tram is a short walk away, across the Hippodrome; to come in from Ataturk airport, you take the Metro to Zeytinburnu and transfer to the tram for Sultanahmet. Several less touristy restaurants are close by. The rooms are small but clean and reasonably modern. Although there are only eight rooms, the front desk is staffed 24 hours per day. Owner Mustafa (who has operated Antique House for 19 years) and his brother Tanzel speak good English and are very helpful. The breakfasts (including muffins and cakes freshly baked, wonderful cheeses, stuffed olives, and eggs) are without question the best and most ample we have tasted in Turkey. Finally, we encountered an unusual problem while we were in Istanbul, and Mustafa could not have been more supportive. He personally drove us where we needed to go and served as our translator. Please write me directly if you have any questions.

We had a weekend here recently and it was fantastic. The hotel is in such a good location to be able to walk to the key tourist sites in the old town and the staff are so friendly, it felt as though we were being welcomed in to someone's home. The rooms are quite small but big enough for a few days and very clean. Thank you so much!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great: 5-10 min walk to Sultanahmet mosque. There are plenty of different restaurants around that fit every taste. If you want to visit hammam - ask the owner for advice.
