A quite attractive comfortable nicely furnished hotel. We have a normal room booked which for a stay of 10 days way too small was. The size of the room we want very borderline designate. The first room we had to because of extreme mold matters. We got a different room, which ok but also so small and to the street out was. Opposite there was a bar, which was very often until the late night events loud music or soccer transfers organized. You got no eye to. Diagonally opposite there was a kiosk which as well as was open 24 ... hours a day and also very much noise into the room echos. Sleep hardly possible. Not to mention the traffic, which as well as under the window langquälte, although the old town is not so without further is possible. Excursions start generally in the morning quite early. From 3 ordered packed lunches we have just got one. The nachtportier shrugged and said well forget. Thus began 2 days holiday with fasting stomach, although one the breakfast paid. One was also not ready fast at the kiosk for us to procure. Very inflexible. We can absolutely recommend a bit larger room as to the inner courtyard to book and a bit more pay.

The hotel lies in a rather quiet street, in the middle of the old town from Antalya. Our room was not large, but clean and had a very nice renovated bath. Unfortunately there were with the half board no choice of meals. A multi-course menu was only offered. Staff the front desk were very friendly, could partly also German. For breakfast the communication was with the staff already difficult.

- LocationKALEICI The ancient city center enclosed by the sea and land walls is today called the "Kale Ici" (Inner Bailey). The streets and buildings still bear the marks of Antalya's history. The characteristic of the houses do not lie only in their architecture but reflect the living habits, customs and social ways of the inhabitants of ancient Antalya and are thus a valuable source of information. This streets within the bailey are narrow, and stretch upwards from the harbor and along by the walls. The difference in the houses shows the economic status of the owners or the purpose for which they were used. However, they share many common factors. Most of them were built of masonry interspersed with timber. Each one has a front and back garden. They are very few windows on the street side of the first floor of the house. On the top floor is a "cumba" or trellised projection in harmony with the architecture of the house and street, adorned with wooden ornaments. The center of the house is on the ground floor and opens onto a paved courtyard called "taslik" and where there are wooden benches. This leads into the ground floor rooms and there is also a staircase to the upper floors. The ground floor is largely the house's servicing area and consists of the kitchen, storage room, etc. while the upper floor contains the living quarters, although kitchen and storage room can sometimes be seen on the top floor. The upper floor rooms are larger and lighter with large windows. In some of these houses the top floor rooms have two rows of windows, one on top of the other, and in some cases the upper rows do not have any glass only wooden lattices. The bottom row can be opened. In the upper part of some of the "cumba" are small pieces of glass, sometimes colored. A few of the buildings within the harbor have been restored and restoration is continuing. Today in the inner bailey, can be found places of entertainment, guesthouses, restaurants, shops selling souvenirs and old carpets and other necessities, a supermarket servicing the yacht as well as other amenities required by them, and it is in fact an attractive center of tourism. The port of Antalya was formerly considered after Mersin as the only port on Turkey's western seaboard where ships could dock. However, today it is used exclusively as a yacht harbor. After the new industrial harbor west of Antalya went into operation, the former port became known as the Yacht Harbor. ___________________________________________ HISTORY OF ANTALYA The History of Antalya goes back to the Stone Age. The evidence for this is the ruins of Paleolithic Age found in Karain Cave nearby Yagca Village. A great deal of ruins belonging to the old Bronze Age was discovered in the excavations of Karataş Semahöyük. It was stated by the historians that the country Ahiyava or Arzova written on the tablets of Hittites would have been Pamphylia (Antalya). However, no finding was met here evidencing their survival except for a few ruins found in Side Township. On the other side, it was written in the Greek legends that some Aka groups had reached to Pamphylia with the leadership of Kalkhas after the War of Troy. The origins of the Lydia civilization settled in Antalya region are not known exactly. A tribe called Lukki or Lukka referred in the Hittite and Egyptian sources in 2000 BC would, most probably, be the Lydia. This tribe was firstly referred in the period of Croesus, the King of Lydia. Antalya region belonged to the Kingdom of Lydia in the first times. After the defeat of King Croesus by the Persian King Kyros in 546 BC, the region was ruled by Persians until the time of Alexander. Macedonian King Alexander, marched to Pamphylia over Lydia, and conquered the cities here, except Sylion. The Termessos city in Pisidia withstood against Alexander. After the peace of Apameia in 188 BC, the Romans left this region to the King of Bergama. Attalos II, the King of Bergama founded the city of Antalya as a port town in 159-138 BC. When a state called Klycia was founded in Anatolia in 102 BC, it was joined here, and Anteunus gave Pamphylia to Amyntas, the King of Galatia in 36 BC. The Emperor Cladius turned Pamphylia and Lydia into states in 43 BC. Antalya region lived its most splendid periods from 2nd Century AD to the midst of 3rd Century. Antalya region was conquered by Süleyman Shah in the period of Anatolian Seljuks, but it was left to Byzantine with the Agreement made in 1117. The second settlement to Antalya was held at the time of Giyaseddin Keyhüsrev I. in 1206, and Ertokuş Bey was appointed as a ruler. In the period of this Ruler (1204-1215), Trabzon - Iznik Greek Empire and the settlers of Antalya were closed to the Seljuks. When Giyaseddin I. was killed, the Christians united with Cyprus, and took Antalya back. However, after three days, it was conquered by Izzettin Keyhüsrev I. and joined to the Seljuks. After the withdrawal of Mongols in 1336, the period of Principalities started in Anatolia. Antalya was ruled by Tekeliogullari which was a group of Hamitogullari. In the time of Sultan Yildirim Beyazit, Antalya was ruled by the Ottoman Empire, and it was ruled by Firuz Bey in 1391. From now on, Antalya started to be called as Teke State.Antalya remained as an Ottoman State until the World War I. When the War of Independence started, it was invaded by Italians. The invasion of Italians ended in 9 July 1921, and it became a province of Turkish Republic after that time.
