Miles of beaches and centuries of history are all waiting to be discovered. From the boutique to the historic, here are the best hotels in Antalya – bookable on Culture Trip.

Antalya is the biggest Mediterranean getaway in Turkey, but it}s not all resorts and all-inclusive hotels (although there are lots of those, too). Choose from secluded guesthouses hidden within the historical old town, modern beachfront hotels offering private pools, and a sociable budget-friendly hostel complete with its own beer garden.

A luxury boutique hotel in the centre of ancient Kaleici (old town), this is one for the comfort-loving sightseer. Delight Deluxe Boutique Hotel is just a short walk from Hadrian’s Gate, the most famous Roman-era landmark in Antalya, which dates back to 130CE. You can walk the 40 steps down to the old town harbour before enjoying the city beach; when you finally get back to the hotel, there’s a swimming pool alongside a Thai-themed spa and the Bencil Restaurant.

Elegance East Hotel is one for travellers who revel in a little architectural splendour. In a traditional Antalayan building in the midst of the historic Kaleici neighbourhood, this boutique hotel only offers 25 rooms set around an open courtyard. Take an early-morning dip in the outdoor swimming pool before enjoying the buffet breakfast and local dishes throughout the day around the poolside restaurant.

The Tuvana Hotel in Kaleici embodies an ancient Hittite concept (known as Tuvana), which celebrates the harmonious coming together of people from different backgrounds. As a guest here, you will get a hospitable Turkish greeting. This boutique hotel in Antalya is found within a restored Ottoman-era mansion, complete with traditional whitewashed walls and a not-so-traditional (but very welcome) outdoor swimming pool. There’s a pizzeria, mixology lessons and a fine-dining restaurant, plus a Latin-Mediterranean fusion bistro where you’ll be enticed by grilled fare.

4. Golden Orange Hotel

For travellers looking to unwind away from the city centre, the Golden Orange Hotel has the perfect location overlooking Konyaalti Beach. Rooms are compact, but offer balconies with sea views or garden views. You can be on the beach enjoying the Mediterranean Sea in minutes or take it easy on the sun loungers around the swimming pool.

5. White Garden Hotel

If you’re a fan of Ottoman-era architecture, then you’d do well to book into the White Garden Hotel. This boutique hotel in Antalya was formerly an Ottoman mansion, lovingly restored to its former glory in 2016. This hotel is in the historic Kaleici district and features a rooftop terrace, boasting sea and mountain views. Sip a glass of red under the bougainvillaea or dive into the courtyard swimming pool.

The Marmara Antalya is one of the most unique hotels in Turkey. This five-star, luxury accommodation boasts 360-degree views of Antalya, as it is the only revolving hotel in the world. Book out a revolving loft room, complete with wide, open windows and continually changing views of the Mediterranean and the Taurus Mountains. If that’s not enough, enjoy the view with cocktails at the Revolving Lounge, or take a break from the endless spinning at the stationary clifftop Beach Bar.

7. La Paloma Hotel

Drawing on the mixed heritage left behind by Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman civilizations, La Paloma Hotel is in a boutique mansion, formerly the residence of the priest of nearby St Paul’s Church. Today the traditional architecture is contrasted by the addition of a modern, outdoor swimming pool (surrounded by orange trees) and al fresco dining options during the summer.
