Reviewed November 4, 2012

We were delighted that there was still one room available when we enquired, and even happier when we got there! Straight out of a history page, this hotel is in the old walled part of the city and a walk from a huge choice of shopping, sight seeing and restaurants. We found the hotel restaurant to be excellent and enjoyed several meals there that compared with the best we had eaten in Turkey. Service is first class throughout the hotel and the restaurants and we were also impressed with the friendly hospitality of the owners who quite regularly sat with us for a drink and a chat. Wonderful ambience, obviously very old but really well renovated and cared for. We stayed on the restaurant side of the street over the breakfast room on the first landing and had no problems at all with noise. Highly recommended.

Nice Hotel but rooms tired and floorboards so squeaky you tried to walk carefully but to no avail. Terrible smell of cat poo in our part af the hotel and our holiday spoilt by finding money missing from my bag on the last day.
We have stayed in Antalya many times and this was certainly the noisiest Hotel yet.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room near to the pool as the rooms on the other side are near to the restaurant an...

We stayed a the hotel with 2 friends to celebrate a very special wedding anniversay. The room that we were allocated (Room 903) proved to be the noisiest room that I have ever occupied!!!. We were over the bar/restaurant area, and on top of that had a communial balcony right next to our windows, and if that isn't enough.......there was a loose drain cover in the road immediately outside our room. When we reported this to reception the next morning it was obvious to us that this is an ongoing problem. We asked for a room change but felt fobbed off with delaying tactics.
Generally the staff were very pleasant and professional. The hotel bar prices were extremley expensive. There are no tea/coffe making facilities in the rooms.

Room Tip: avoid room 903 at all costs!!!!!

On arrival at the hotel we were greeted warmly and told that we had been upgraded. Our room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The hotel itself is in the Kaleici (old town) area so it's very convenient. It is split over two areas with the reception and pool on one side of the street and the restaurant and some rooms on the other. All the public areas of the hotel are very stylish in design. The pool area was small and a bit crowded early in the day. The breakfast was excellent quality, delicious and plentiful, but was very busy. The service was helpful and friendly. Overall we really enjoyed our time at the Tuvana and just wished we could have stayed longer.

Our group of 5 stayed at the Tuvana for one night October 10, 2012. We had a very early flight to catch the next morning which the General Manager Nermin Sumer was aware of. When we arrived, she told us that we would be upgraded to a better room. This room was in the restaurant building which later that evening became very loud and noisy. I have to say that Ms. Sumer did move us when I told her that we were unhappy where we were. The hotel has a lot of charm, but if you want to sleep do not accept a room in the restaurant building.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the building adjacent to the pool for quiet and rest.

We have just returned from an excellent week at the Tuvana Hotel in Antalya.
For those who use larger corporate hotels most of the year, Tuvana offers a great alternative with many of the facilities you would expect from a larger hotel but in a much more personal way.
The hotel is on a great location convenient for the main shopping areas and restaurants. The decor is authentic and charming, the rooms comfortable and clean and the staff quietly efficient.
We were on a half board basis which I would recommend. Authentic Turkish Cuisine was available every night and the food served was of an excellent standard. Just a word of caution, not about the hotel but about the restaurants surrounding it. Beware of getting ripped off by the kebab restaurants. They pester as you walk past to come in and try their food. IF you do, you are shown a menu with pictures and prices but what you are charged is always much more. This is because, they claim, the dish you ordered was bigger than the one in the photo!! It is a rip off and when you compare pricing with that in the Tuvana, you are better off eating there. Also see my comments on the Corner Cafe which does not rip you off.

I spent two delightful weeks in this lovely hotel with my wife at the end of September. The hotel is beautifully decorated with what I believe to be the Otterman style. Our room had a balcony from which you could just see the sea, it was ideal for sunbathing if we did not want to go down to the pool and bar. What really made our stay such an excellent experience were the charming, friendly, helpful staff who went the extra mile to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The rooms were cleaned with fresh sheets and towels daily and the cleaning staff were always ready to help us practice our Turkish language skills!!
We will certainly stay here again as it is such a beautiful hotel at such reasonable prices with such friendly staff.
Please be warned this hotel seems to attract professional complainers from Germany, USA and England. A note to reviewer PatA99 you would not get a bog standard B+B in the UK for what the Tuvana charges. Perhaps if you treated the Turks with a little more respect and not your slaves you would get better service.
