Best Pensions in Kaleiçi, Antalya

Kaleiçi (Old Antalya), the historic center of Antalya surrounding the Roman harbor (map), has traditionally been the place to find atmospheric, inexpensive pensions and hostels.

In recent years many of the cheap pensions have been upgrading their facilities to provide more comfort and services. They look better than ever, and are more enjoyable, but also more expensive.

However, for the budget price you usually receive a room with private bathroom, air conditioning, TV, Wifi, and buffet breakfast all included in the rates. Hardly roughing it!

Coming from the Otogar (bus terminal), take the Antray tram in the direction of Merkez and get out at İsmetpaşa (the 8th stop) near the city center,Kalekapısı and Kaleiçi (map).

Don’t even try to get to any of the pensions below by car without detailed instructions—it’s way too complicated. Contact your pension for help.

Here’s a description of the various mahalles(neighborhoods) of Kaleiçi, their locations and advantages. More…
