“Good Hotel, Central Location, Friendly staff”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Just returned from Istanbul a 5 day City break. This hotel, in my opinion is very well location 2 mins from the Dervish dancers and a few mins from the Blue Mosque, Sophia Museum and many bars and restaurants. The rooftop has good views over the Black Sea and the Blue Mosque. It does not have loungers, but in the summer its where brekfast lunch etc is served.
Brekfast here is basic but enough. The rooms are small and comfortable (twin room) the staf are very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is peaceful and clean. More than you need when you come back from a busy day sightseing a comfortable clean bed.

The rooms do however have thin walls, and when other residents speak it feels as if the are in your room. Unfortunately we requested a room with a decent view and got the train tracks. slightly noisy. However we were so tired it did not get the better of us.

in my opinion suitable for anyone othe than those with mobility issues as the hotel and surrounding streets are slopey therefore wheelchair users may find it a little difficult

Room Tip: if you are a couple then you should get a decent room. i travelled with my friend in a twin room it...

We stayed here for 6 nights last week and had a wonderful time. The hotel is located in Sultanahmet - the heart of the old city with all major tourist attractions within walking distance from the hotel. Staff was friendly and attentive. The room was clean and the daily housekeeping was quite efficient. The buffet breakfast was also quite decent. The 4th floor terrace provided great views of the Blue Mosque on one side and the Sea of Marmara on the other. Except for the noise from the passing trains (our room was on the side of the railways tracks), we had no complaints at all. Would definitely love to stay here again!

Just been back couple of days and already missing it. The hotel is in a great location, all the main attractions are walking distance. The room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was good, a couple of times we took the breakfast on the terrace and the staff were really helpful. The view on the terrace is beautiful with the sea on one side and the Blue Mosque on the other.
The staff was great, couldn't have been more helpful. Especially Gokhan who just made me laugh and was the best! I would defiantly stay at Antis again.

Just back from a great 4 days at Antis Hotel. Railway close and noisy but stops late at night. Hotel re-carpeted just before our arrival. Breakfast good, took it up to terrace overlooking Sea of Marmaras and Bosphrus. Staff very friendly and helpful. Located close to Blue Mosque and also to restaurants, from hotel we walked to all the major sites. All in all if you ignore railway or keep windows closed the a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Can't comment.

Overall a very disappointing stay for us. I would NOT recommend this hotel.
Room did not feel overlearly clean, carpets were very badly soiled and just felt generally run down. Hotel staff not overly friendly and receptionist kept pushing to sell return trip to airport. We had a terribly nosiy room right on the railway line, even with windows shut, trains would wake us up, we hardly slept the first night. Breakfast very average.

The hotel itself is very well located, an easy walk to all the major sights, it has decent (free) wifi, the room we had was a reasonable size, comfortable and clean. The only downside was it is quite close to the railway, but not too noisy, I wouldn't recommend it to a light sleeper though. The breakfast was nothing special, not bad, but we found ourselves not bothering after a couple of days and finding a cafe somewhere else instead.
I wasn't too impressed with the staff though, as we were checking in the man behind the desk seemed more interested in trying to sell us guided tours or a return cab to the airport than anything else, also the porter pretty much grimaced when we tipped him (I didn't have any change apart from a couple of lira so it wasn't over generous) after he took our bags to the room ''hmm that will do, for today''. So certainly wasn't made to feel overly welcome;
