Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is on the west side of the river bisecting Antakya's (Antioch) New and Old Towns. It's a block from the river, which makes it two blocks from the Old Town. Despite a couple of short term hiccups with Wifi, the hotel exceeded my expectations. It is a good value (Wifi is free and laundry and food/drinks are not outrageous), clean, efficient, and benefits from an open mezzanine terrace from which you can sip a drink, look down and watch the world go by. NGO types and journos stay here frequently for the value and central, open location.

Hotel is located in the city centre, you can easily walk to see the city. Rooms are big and well cleaned. There is wireless internet without any cost. Personnel is friendly and helpful. Foods and breakfast is good, you have a variety of choices. Hotel has car park. The cost is suitable for this type of accomodation.

Room Tip: if there is a ceremony in the hotel don't get the room on 7th floor.

I stayed here during a weekend. It's a nice and clean hotel. Rooms are fairly big. Beds are comfortable. The isles are a bit dark and somber, but the lightning of the rooms are good. The hotel is in the walking distance to the river and all of the restaurants and stores at the center.

This hotel was just fine, but nothing special. The staff are friendly and the internet is good. The locations is nice in that your close to just about everything you need down town. There is not really any special views or amazing points, but the breakfast is good, and everything is fine.

A lot of journalists stay here in 2012 given the situation, and their is a nice little bar with veranda seating where you can sit and listen to them lap up the stories of their "contacts".

As with most places in the area the lights in the hallways are on a sensor, so the hallways are extremely dark when you get off the elevators until the motion detector finds you, so its worth having a little flash light with you, although this is not specific to just this hotel.

The staff are well connected and can arrange just about anything you may need in terms of logistics or advice. They are good people.

I stayed twice in this hotel. I had wonderful experience.
There is a free wifi, free delicious breakfast, and walking distance from many things in the middle of the city.
The staff were very professional

Antakya is a very interesting city with lots to see and do. The archaeological museum is excellent and contains an enormous selection of large mosaics excavated in the region. There is an abundance of restaurants and the food is great. The people are also very welcoming. The Narin hotel however is very disappointing. Although the staff are friendly and competent, the hotel does not merit its four star status. There are no leisure amenities. We only had breakfast and after that experience would therefore not return to eat lunch or dinner. The food was very poor. There is no excuse given the great food in Hatay province. However the bedrooms are very poor. The matresses are rock-hard and the rooms are kitted out like a hostel. Although the location is good there are other options available locally.
