We are Americans living a couple of hours drive from Antalya. For our anniversary we decided to spend the weekend in the city. What a wonderful decision it was to stay in this small, well located hotel.
Our first impression of the hotel was that it is clean and everything looked perfect. I don't know what else to say, except that it was immaculate and manicured. A lot of attention was given to detail, and that is difficult to do with an old building.
With only nine rooms, the staff gave us personal attention as well. Although the temperature outside was 95 F/35 C while we were there, our room was cold. The hotel provided extra blankets for us because we didn't want to turn the a/c off. The shower was excellent, our view of the pool was nice, and everything in the hotel was CLEAN and in its place!
Breakfast was something to look forward to. We ate next to the pool and enjoyed the homemade jams and fruit spreads (you won't find anything this good in a store) made by the owner's mother. Breakfast was all Turkish; boiled eggs, toast, olives, tomatoes, cheese, coffee, etc. However, if you wanted something else, for example a poached egg, they provided it. The food was excellent and listening to Norah Jones at breakfast was a bonus.
Noise in the room was bearable. The hotel is in the middle of the Old Town, so there is music playing into the night. I could hear the thump of a bass through the wall, but my wife didn't hear it at all. She is a very light sleeper and didn't have a bit of trouble falling and staying asleep. We both did.
We really enjoyed meeting the owner and spending time in the courtyard our last evening there talking and listening to soft relaxing music.
We stayed two nights and hated to leave. Loved it and can't wait to go back!
