This is a great design boutique hotel, nicely decorated, the pool area had a nice hip feel. The location is right in the heart of Kaleici, very close to the sea. The restaurant is one of the best around, with a great wine list. Staff is discrete and friendly, always happy to help.

However, the hotel is difficult to access by car and it would be helpful to have driving directions sent beforehand.

Room Tip: We had a duplex suite which was nice even if not very roomy.

A great place to stay - close to the marina and right in the heart of the old town. The rooms are clean, fresh and comfortable. The pool area is fabulous with quite a hip feel, and provides a nice atmosphere for relaxing. The staff are friendly and welcoming.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

Sitting in the heart of Antalya's Old City (Kaleiçi), Puding Marina Suites would satisfy any yearning to travel through time in a stylish manner. There's something gloriously Ottoman about the estate. Built almost a century ago, the hotel complex is composed of four newly-renovated houses sharing a tastefully designed courtyard with a lovely pool area. The owner/designer of the hotel re-invened the roles played by "tradition" and "modernity" in each and every detail of the place.

Clutter-free, the rooms have been thoughtfully pared back to deliver quality essentials. Neatly mixed retro-styled and modern furnitures provided a neat contrast with the old floor tiles in bathroom. The %100 cotton sheets felt incredibly white, clean and fresh.

In the morning, we had the most relaxing, peaceful and tranquil pooling experience in the patio. To tell you the truth, I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere and had started fantasising about living in one of these mansions. (I could ctually turned my fantasies into (temporary) reality by having a single night's stay. But we will definately make it up in our future travels with prolonged stays @ Puding).

(PS: The only drawback could be the noisy guests having a ball in the pool area late at night when you are trying to get a good nights sleep)

Hotel's restaurant (Patio Restaurant) is definately on its way to be among the most prestigious in Kaleiçi Antalya. Breakfast was superb. Staff attentive and friendly.

Our stay (a group of seven) at the Puding Marina Residence has been really wonderful.
Actually, at first, the reception gave me a sensation of coldness due to the white, silver and grey colour of the furnishings, and the white uniforms of the receptionists, but luckily it was only the first impact: the area around the pool is a very pleasant place to stay, with the bar and the pool beds, there is a stylish balance between new and old things. Rooms are very comfortable and clean.
People at the reception are really helpful, but above everyone Yeliz, she’s perfect! Always ready to meet our requests, it seems that she answers your needs even before you tell her! She reads people’s mind! ;)
If you have time, you must absolutely try a massage at the spa, extraordinary!
Breakfast at the “Patio” has been one of our favourite moments of the day: varied in type, from Turkish (fantastic!) to continental style, with fresh and dried fruit, yoghurt, orange juice, coffee, tea, marmalade, cakes, and much more! My passion: the kaimak (fresh cheese served with honey) to be spread on black bread, SIMPLY DELICIOUS!!! And if it’s not enough, there is a menu for cooked breakfast as well. All the waiters have been extremely friendly, but never intrusive, smiling and kind.
We had decided for b&b only, but we couldn’t help having all our dinners at “Patio”, dishes are very tasty, starting from the excellent quality of food, vegetables, meat, fish. Everything is worth trying, really appetizing, from pizza, to kebab, to salmon, to pidè. Courses were amazing at the sight as well as delicious for the taste. There is also a white wine from Izmir (I can’t remember the name) which has made me change my bad opinion on white wine! Last but not least ICE CREAM! If you’re one of those who has been cheated by the Turkish ice cream, I mean that awful thing made of Arabic gum which tastes like frozen air, well, here at “Patio” you can find the real ice cream! I would suggest you, yoghurt, framboise, another one I think with milk….mouthwatering! Our biggest thank you goes to chef Michele, for his great cooking of course, (we’ve put on some weight) but also for his way of welcoming us, he has always been extremely caring, making us feel at home, he has made the difference in our stay in Antalya.
So, what to add, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Spent 2 nights here in July. Beautiful architecture, spotlessly clean. The breakfast which was included in the price is the best we have had in any hotel we have ever stayed in - freshly baked bread, selection of cheeses, cold meats, salads, fruit, cereal, eggs cooked to order ( traditional turkey omelette was excellent ) the best egg benedict I have ever had. The staff are so friendly and cannot do enough for you. Situated in the old town of Antalya it is a great spot for exploring this beautiful town.

Dear esteemed guest,

We respect the fact that every single person has a different taste in this world which ends 6 billion different preferences. In order to clarify certain points related to your comment, we would like to inform you that we had the opportunity to employ a chef who has a Mİchelin 2 star restaurant in Italy and who is an Italian himself as well. We have observed so far him and his team put his heart in this business. In order to be able to serve the best Italian in town, we have imported our kitchen equipment from Italy even installed a huge oven just for the pizza. Our team and management have received such a comment for the first time, for this reason we strongly believe that this is a matter of diffrent tastes and choices.

Kindest regards,

Puding Marina Team

We liked to Pudding Marina. Nice room. Well located. Kind of a hip, boutique vibe to the place. The pool area was great, which is internal to the property. Staff was okay, but not meaningfully helpful or welcoming. Price was decent. I would recommend to others.

Room Tip: we got a room that was right over the street above a restaurant. Very noisy and hard to sleep. Would...
