Don Pedro Garden
Ranked #90 of 221 Antalya B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Advantages and disadvantages

The pansion is very close to the Hadrian's Gate, we found it very quickly.
Very quiet place, no noisy neighbor cafes. If the windows of your room are from garden side, you'll not hear the morning prayer (a mosque located near Handrian Gates).

Cute design of the small hotel, just 5 rooms.
Our room was on the 2nd floor, and we had everything: air conditioner, led TV, mini bar, hot and cold water, a double bed. Clean room but nobody changed nothing during 4 nights.
WIFI worked well.

disadvantages:
Sound insulation is no good. We heard everyone on stairs and in other rooms.
Including water in shower from other rooms.
We were woken several times during the night because the neighbors returned late.

Continental breakfast (not Buffet): 2 slices of cheese, olives, half a tomato, half a cucumber, jam, chocolate-hazelnut paste, bread, cup of tea or coffee.
During the day, to make their own tea was not possible because in the balon did not contain the water and we didn't find the clean cups.

Antalya - city of the cats, especially a lot of them in the old town.
I loves the cats and was happy to see them in the garden, but they smell because the owners do not wash the territory.

Frequently nobody sits on reception but the staff is friendly. Although their English is very poor.

Room Tip: Better to ask the room with windows on garden side

We felt at home at Candles. There's just a handful of rooms and has a boutique feel to it. The family who run the hotel will go out of their way to help you. The hotel is hidden away in the corner of the old town. It makes it a little tricky to find (the locals will point you in the right direction), but means you're away from the noisy bars. It's right by the trams and Ataturk shopping street.
What began as an overnight stay in Antalya ended up a week enjoying the hospitality and restaurants of the historical city.
There is a small, stone beach near this hotel, just by the port. The entrance is through a hotel.
Our best meal was also eaten at Candles Hotel.
Don't miss a walk through the nearby park and getting lost in the old town.

i stayed there for three nights and my girlfriend and I miss that place as we travel around turkey. The best thing there was the food. We enjoyed every meal of breakfast and the dinner there was amazing. especially Serap was such a nice lady and made our staying memorable.

Very difficult to find. We asked a local guy to get us there.
Great location in the hart of the Old town by the Hadrian's Wall for the cheap price.
We took a tram and then a 600 bus to get back to the airport what cost us 6TRL p/p.
Nice breakfast, cheese omlet and plenty of Turkish tea.
The owner doesn't speak much English so do your research, but wii-fii is available.
Rooms clean but sometimes you can smell of the old drains. Overall worth the price!

Stayed at candles for one night on a stop over. Had picked candles based on previous reviews, as we wanted a cheap & cheerful room. Firstly the Candles is a nightmare to find, even with satnav! The streets are very narrow & on a one way system. When we finally found the guesthouse it did look pretty from the street, however once through the gates & into reception the first thing that caught my attention was the smell of cat urine. The reception area was small, dusty with withered flowers. The gentleman on reception explained to us although we'd paid for breakfast, their kitchen was closed & if we wanted breakfast we would need to go down the road to another hotel! The room itself was very clean but basic - we expected this for the amount we paid, but it was missing basic items such as toilet roll. With wooden floors & thin walls we could quite easily hear noise from a room at the end of the corridor. We were woken several times during the night by dogs barking in the grass park outside the window, which seemed to be where they gathered. It's also worth noting that prayer time happens at 3-4 in the morning & from the noise in our room I presume the mosque isn't too far away!
When we came to check out in the morning there was nobody there, apart from a large Alsatian dog which didnt seem too happy! So we had to leave Candles under the presumption they would take payment from our credit card.
Maybe we were just there at the wrong time of year?
