“Relaxing, peaceful, fabulous location in Kaleiçi”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Yes, the Puding Marina is dreamy in every way. Customer service, location, breakfast buffet, accessibility to Old Antalya (Kaleiçi) sights and even the resident doggy who is around every morning at the outside dining tables!

Arrival was at O-dark-thirty in the morning, and we were allowed to stay for half-price the extra half-day in our room (they let us check in early). Walking up the back-lit agate steps to the lobby when we arrived, the simple, stark decor made one anticipate what the rest of the hotel would look like. Not only were we visually intrigued by the see-through pool noted in the gym area, but the layout of the pool area was inviting and beautiful. Many delightful touches with cushions piled on square ''lounge pedestals'' and desert plants reminiscent of Arizona. Through one arched opening was a suspended hammock--didn't have time to enjoy it, however!

The room itself was spacious--lights strategically places for architectural interest, sheer and opaque curtains in purple were a lovely accent to the otherwise neutral room. The bed was very comfortable to sleep in--and the pillows were not the typical Turkish Brick Foam that you get in most turkish lodging facilities.

The bathroom was spacious as well, although it did not have towel racks to put our wet towels on to dry--we threw them over the shower glass divider. Fun sink and faucet as well--the more modern vessel sink was a lovely touch to the decor. Hot/cold water worked on demand; hair dryer present--the expected small portions of shampoo/conditioner/lotion/liquid soap on hand as well. Because there are never wash cloths in European hotels, I always bring my own with me when I travel.

We were allowed a free 15-minute massage, and the darling Taiwanese gal was worth the large tip we gave her--even scheduled a longer one after the "introductory'' experience. The Hamam (Turkish Bath) facility was beautiful--it is a do-it-yourself type of thing with four water faucets / marble bowls in the corners and the raised, heated marble slab in the middle of the 12' X 15' room. Lovely experience.

Breakfast was in the adjacent restaurant that was accessed by a back entrance or exiting the hotel and walking 10 steps to it. The food buffet was pleasant--fresh fruit, dry cereals, yogurt, cheeses, sliced meats, bread, croissants, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, nutella, honey, butter; you could toast the bread you sliced if you desired.

Parking in front of the hotel was limited to three spaces, but a short 40-50 yards away were more spaces that the hotel staff would gladly park your vehicle in.

Location of the hotel is FABULOUS! Not only is it close to the marina and the bazaar, but within walking distance are Hadrian's Gate, the Fluted Minaret, the Clock Tower, Hidirlik tower, and many great little restaurants.

The staff are most helpful and accommodating. We were given a Standard Economy room when we arrived which is quite small. We were spending 6 days in Antalya and there was no way we could have survived in that room. We asked for a larger room and were moved after the first night. The location is near the marina in the old city and the atmosphere of the location was perfect for us. We could walk everywhere within and around the old city and the restaurants and cafes that are chiseled into the cliff side and around the harbour provide picturesque views. Add an Efes and your lost in the ambiance of the Med. There is also a pool which is very quaint and peaceful. The Puding puts on a great breakfast which is included. You can order from the breakfast menu as well as enjoy the buffet of fresh fruit, meat, cheese, bread, olives etc. The wi-fi was intermittent and the TV had 1 English channel which was muted. Since we didn't spend much time in the room these were not big issues but they were a nuisance. Overall we would recommend the Puding Marina Residence.

Located in the old town of Antalya. The room was average. Food was very good in the restaurant with a nice buffet in the morning and a good dinner menu. The pool size was good with comfortable chairs for lounging. The exercise equipment was outdoors which was not too convenient with the temperatures hovering in the mid 90's.

I'm sure the architect won some awards but this hotel is a triumph of form over function. It all looks modern and stylish but it just doesn't work. The lobby assults the sences, there's a gym in the walkway to the rooms, there are no real sitting areas and the rooms are small and poorly laid out. Wi-fi doesn't work in rooms, despite claims to the contrary, and the music next door will keep you awake until late at night.
The 'citadel' area is a great place to stay but this isn't the hotel to stay in.

Friendly staff who went out of their way to make our stay better than we had anticipated.
Located right on the Marina the hotel has all the amenities you would expect.
The pool is a decent size and is well kept along with the trendy looking pods which act as loungers. Although the old town is expensive, the hotel restaurant is well priced and has a good selection if cuisines to accompany the complimentary breakfast which is excellent.
This is one hotel which we will definitely be coming back to. Our party stayed in rooms 701 and 702 which had its own private terrace which was a huge bonus.

We stayed here for a number of nights and I agree with the majority of the good points by other reviewers. Good location, nice breakfast and dinner on terrace, clean, staff friendly and helpful. We had paid for a sea view so our room on the front was bright in the afternoon and had a great view.

It takes about 30 minutes from the airport by taxi and cost about 50 lira.

The only negatives in that the wifi kept dropping which was annoying and the hotel had a written policy, which you signed on check in, that you could not bring any food or drink into the room. This seems a bit over the top to me and thankfully most people ignored the rule. It also seems pointless when they provide a kettle in the room and to be fair free bottled water.

Overall would recommend.

the hotel was great, very modern and clean rooms. Staff friendly too. I booked the hotel only going off the reviews and definitely wasnt disapointed. Good location just by the marina n walk up to the old town. we stayed in room 215 which was facing the front of the hotel to the main road, lovely room. only issue was as it faces the main road can be quite noisy at night, although wasnt really an issue for us.
