This lavishly restored Ottoman Pashas residence is set on a bluff above the Old Harbour of Antalya and has 8 different rooms surrounding an enclosed courtyard off a quiet old street. The hotel offers a feast of ancient and half-forgotten Turkish arts and crafts and has miniature-painted ceilings, handmade Kütahya ceramics, natural-dye fabrics specially weaved under the supervision of Arts Institute professors and offers guests natural olive oil soaps made in the hill villages. The woodwork is entirely made of cedar whose sweet scent alternates with the sweeter wafts of baking from the pastry shop below. The staff are efficientl and professional and the restaurant specialises in old-fashioned Turkish upper-crust cuisine. The only down side is the nightly noise from the popular music venues nearby.
