A beautiful Ottoman-style
inn with a gourmet restaurant on a
quiet street only two minutes' stroll
the very center of historic Antalya, near the top sights, tram lines, bazaar, boutiques and harbor...
Is that possible?
Location, Location, Location...
It is! It's the Tuvana Hotel,
in a prime location close to all the
sights in Kaleiçi
(Old Antalya), but also just steps
the very center of Antalya sightseeing,
It's even on its own quiet
side street with
no vehicle traffic, very little pedestrian
traffic, but plenty of flowers. This makes it especially suitable for families and travelers with mobility challenges.
