Best Western Antea Palace Hotel & Spa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We are Best Western Rewards members and chose this hotel because of price and an offer of a 4 night stay for the price of 3 nights. We could not have been more pleased. They have a remarkable staff from the receptionist who greeted us, to the bellboy who refused our tip (there is a bell boy tip box at the main desk), and the housekeeper who put flowers from her garden in our room. The bell boy and reception staff were remarkable for the information they provided us about how to get around the city. We had a car and they took very good care of it while we were there. The breakfast choices were excellant. The haman and sauna were very nice. It is just a couple of blocks further from the sights than another more expensive Best Western, but well worth the extra steps.

Room Tip: Ask for the school side. It is probably quieter at night.

Very nice hotel situated in the old part of Istambul, not far from many important places worth to
visit.
We enjoyed our stay as we were taken very much care by the very friendly personal who never
said no to all what we wanted or asked for.The breakfast has a high standard as there is food for
each taste and the food from the restaurant was excellent.
We want to thank all the people working at the hotel as we felt as we were at home
I will recomend this hotel to the people I know and if I come back to I will not choose another one

We were welcomed by very vriendly staff. We first got a look in the standard room, that was already very good, but got an upgrade because we had a bad experience in an other hotel, that made our holyday unforgetable.

We came to Istanbul to celebrate my fathers 80-th birthday. The Antea Palace is a great place to stay. For most of us this was our first time to Istanbul. The staff were very helpfull. The porter, the self proclaimed "He Man", was never far away and full of energy. The hotel is within walking distance from all the important sites. The pool, the Turkish bath and the Sauna is a plus. The pool is a bit small but very nice all the same. Rooms very clean and spacious. Great breakfast comes with the room. Some extra sockets would be nice. Nowadays we all have mobiles, iPads etc to charge.
