I stayed in Antea palace during my maiden trip to Istanbul in September for 2 weeks. Rooms were very clean and pleasant, staff very sweet and nice and food was very authentic. They are also very closely located to all the must visit sites in old town and around a very convenient location where you will get the feel of the old city. I am surely going to stay there in my next visit.

This is our second time we stayedq at this charming hotel we are convinced it is one of the best hotel in Istanbul . The rooms were very romantic ottoman style, beautiful decor and really clean. Friendly staff very helpful and very pleasant (Guven, Ozturk and the manager Ercan, plus others i cant remember their names)every time you call them or ask them about anything they do all their best to help you with a big smile in their face . The breakfast  choice was very pleasant, very good variety of food! Excellent! The Spa area we used everyday is very nice, We liked it very much.  The hotel is a wonderful, good choice, for a quiet, relaxing  vacation. Good location very close to main sightseeings area Wi-Fi wireless internet is very good, They have so many Tv channels, the mattress and the pillows are very good quality. I am really happy to recommend this hotel and I am sure that you will be pleased with your stay.

We stayed at the Antea Palace Hotel & Spa in October and November 2012. We arranged for a shuttle to meet us at the intimidating Ataturk Airport upon arrival from Canada after 15 hours of travelling with our 19 month old. We were met with fine service; fresh squeezed orange juice and a quick, hassle-free check-in. Our toddler was immediately enamoured with the outdoor resident cat and the porter on duty was incredible. He took him outside the front door to see the "La La" which would become a daily treat for our son every time we came and went from the hotel. All the staff became familiar with our little boy and offered him little candies and the porters all took turns holding him while we ate or got information at the concierge and took him to see the "La Las" outside the front door.

This hotel isn't necessarily marketed as a family-oriented hotel but the service we received as a family was top of the line, 5 star. The pool area was clean and warm and we enjoyed evening dips after long days on the cobblestone roads with a stroller.

We stayed at the Antea Palace for a total of 8 nights, two at the beginning of our trip to Turkey and the last six at the end of our 3 week trip. When we came back to Istanbul it felt like the closest thing to home to walk in the front doors and see the same friendly staff and the same sleeping "La Las" at the front door.

Room Tip: We had both a sea-view room and a city-view room. One was above a football/soccer field and the oth...

I stayed at the Antea Palace hotel with my family during the first week of winter break. Almost immediately, we were impressed, as the hotel lobby was very clean and posh. We checked in with a very kind receptionist, and the staff helped carry our luggage up to our room. Upon inspection of our room, we found that it was relatively upscale for a tourist hotel. Also, it is 7:30 minutes away from the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sofia. Couple this with the fact that it is one of the cheapest hotels in the area, and one would be led to believe that the Antea Palace is one of the best value hotels in Istanbul.
