selamlar çok haklısınız otel uzun bir süre restorasyon görüyordu ve bu sebepten kapalı idi sizlerden özür diliyor ve bir dahaki konaklamada sizi ağırlamaktan memnuniyet duyarız saygılar
One's experience in a hotel is contextual. Given the dustblown near-border town it's located in, Divan isn't half bad, and presents a cheaper option than many others in town at 50YL for a double.
However, the room we had was in sore need of a new carpet, and a complete bathroom overhaul. The dark stains on the floor, and threadbare nature of the carpet gave the appearance that the carpet was dirty - which it may or may not have been.
Similarly the bathroom was very small, the door was mouldy, the mirror over the sink calcinated, the shower head rigged by wires to the wall, the light bulb exposed to shower spray.
The bed was covered with fresh and clean linen, which unfortunately didn't fit, often revealing the grotty mattress underneath (a palm print of dye or blood was a choice detail on the mattress). The spring in the mattress probably went some decades ago. The one towel the two of us received was also clean.
The hotel is located on Itsiklal street, which is the main drag, and if you can, you ought to ask for a room in the back as ours was quite noisy in the evening
The reception staff have little English - enough for the needs of the interaction, and they're very helpful. The reception area is a nice place to sit down and have a cup of tea, away from the hubbub below.
All in all, you could do worse, and as the other hotels in town are seriously overpriced, this might just be the sensible choice to stay in this neck of the woods. However, I would not make a trip to Hatay just to stay in this place.
I spent a long time searching online for the cheap but charming hotel which every town like Antakya seems to have. I thought that it didn't exist for the town, until I found the Divan. It's great! It is certainly a bit run down, because it's evidently not been touched for a few decades. However, this is it's charm!
The rooms were clean - and also cleaned everyday. The sheets were fresh and spotless. The rooms were a good size, as was the attached bathroom. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching Antakya go by! The room was not noisy. The staff were very nice. Excellent location. Free wi-fi in the foyer. Great value.
This hotel is centrally located, next to the Orontes Hotel, up a flight of steps. It's basic - no breakfast provided, for example - but the rooms are en suite and will suit purposes of most. Price is very competitive. No English spoken (not when we were there anyway) but nevertheless staff were extremely helpful in enabling us to book onward bus tickets. Recommended for travellers with an eye on the budget.
