Hotel Antea
Ranked #22 of 1,090 Istanbul B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We slept three nights (split to two and a single night) in Antea Old City hotel.
The reception team is mostly friendly and professional . Fast check in and check out. Good directions and recommendations for activities around.
The rooms we got were clean and well equipped. The breakfast was rich and tasty.
The hotel is located in a quite street but in a short walking distance from most of the attractions- the blue mosque, aghia Sophia, topkapi and the grand bazar- great advantage.
If your departure destination is Sabiha Gocken airport you should consider two and a half hours to get there- we almost missed our flight, considering only one hour for travel…

Room Tip: we slept in the top floors (4th and 5th) and these were great.

Perfect location, shining clean and well maintained hotel. Very helpful and anxious to help staff. I was pleasantly suprised that this three star hotel has so good facilities, gym and even spa.Rooms are a little bit small but very nice decorated and really cosy! Rich and tasty breakfast.

The location is by far the strongest feature of this hotel. The amenities are adequate, without being great. The spa/sauna etc., which has several free services, is a nice bonus. The staff was friendly and attentive. The rooms are small but not obscenely so. Easy access to the most famous landmarks and the tram are HUGE positives.

Room Tip: If you plan on having a kid with you in the room, it may be worth it to get the triple room.

Very good location, in the historical center of the city and very close to 2 tram stations. Extremely nice and friendly staff, great view from the terrace, fast wi-fi. Very clean and comfortable hotel.

Room Tip: It's better to chose rooms looking to the back side to avoid street noise in the early morning.

A wonderful hotel, ideally situated for site-seeing around Sultanahmet, the tram station is half a minute away, and if you feel like walking the Grand Bazaar is 5 minutes away, Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosk are 10 minutes away and the Top Kapi palace is 15-20 minutes away.
The hotel itself has a very helpful front desk, manned around the clock, and the people were very pleasant and pointed us in the right direction for our outings.
The only drawback was the relatively small room, which wasn't uncomfortable, but compared to the overall experience it was lacking.
Finally, there are spa facilities working 10am - 10 pm, which unfortunatelly I didn't manage to try, but seem like an ideal way to finish a long day of walking around.
Overall, an incredible place to stay giving good value for money. I will definitely be staying here again next time I am in Istanbul.

I had stayed at another hotel while on a business trip and then added on a couple of days at a hotel that was easier on the wallet. Hotel Antea was perfect - its clean, comfortable, well located and has some good amenities like a small, but nice to have pool. The front desk staff was knowledgable and helpful and the breakfast was fine. The Four Seasons this is not, but at the price we were able to get it was an excellent place to be. Literally a stone's throw from the Cemberlitas tram stop. Rooms are a little small - the average size in say Paris.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the square.

I would recommend anyone to stay in this Hotel.
The location is great only 5 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque and lots of other attractions.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is good value for money.
They do a really good breakfast. Also the indoor pool and a Turkish bath is a real bonus.
The hotel is a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing.
