“Excellent location and friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I stayed in Antique House for three nights. Its situated in the very heart of Instanbul, in a more peaceful part of the old town. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You feel more like visiting friends than staying in a hotel. Breakfasts are very tasty and the rooms are really clean. If I'm in Istanbul again, I will definitely choose Antique.

We had an excellent stay at Antique House. The small, friendly and clean hotel is in a nice, quite neighbourhood (except for the calls for prayer from the nearby mosques, of course) close to attractions like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Basilica Cistern.

Breakfast is not impressive, but adequate, and it can be enjoyed on the roof top terrace with a sea view.

Minor drawbacks: The bed in our room (no. 18) needed a new mattress, and after several hours of heavy rain it began dripping from the ceiling near the window.

We stayed here 4 nights and would definitely recommend as a budget option in Istanbul. It is worth staying in Sultanahmet for your first trip to Istanbul as it is so near to many of the most famous attractions, although if we go back for a second time we would probably stay in a less touristy area. However Antique House is not on the main tourist drag and there were no issues with noise or anything. It is close to the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. It is also very close to the Sea of Marmara, and on a morning you can take your simple but plentiful turkish breakfast up to the roof terrace for sea views - definitely recommended. The rooms are small but clean and well functioning. The owners are friendly and very helpful.

We stayed 6 days in the hotel. We had a very nice welcome, the hotel is well located (right behind the Blue Mosque & close to tram stations). The staff is very friendly and we loved the view onto the Marmara sea from the roof terrace.
Teşekkür ederim! :-)

This is a real good place to stay in Istanbul!!!! The staff is really friendly and helpful and the location is perfect. It is a 5min walk to the blue mosque and the Hagia Sofia. The room is very clean and has basic furniture. There is a Wifi-signal.

This hotel was in a great location with a great price and felt homey and safe.
The staff could not do enough for you. The room was small but adequate and was extremely-extremely clean. Spotless! Thanks Antique House, we will be back. It also had a great view of the Bosphorous from the roof terrace. Book this B&B you will be pleasantly surprised.
