Demand for Antakya's boutique hotels is high, as are some of the prices. If you can't stay in any of them it's worth knowing that the high-rise Onur Hotel beside the market is a reliable alternative, albeit with less character. Despite its location there are some surprisingly quiet rooms available.

My bedroom had a comfortable double bed although there were two rather odd cupboards on either side of it positioned so that you could easily bang your head on the corners. It looked straight across the room to the TV (with some English-language programming) and the efficient air-con unit. The wifi worked well too. 

The bathroom, on the other hand, was rather old-fashioned with a pretty basic shower unit.

Breakfast is served in a first-floor dining room with a few tables outside on the terrace that will be in great demand in summer. The choice of items, while not exciting, was very adequate. 

Although there's a lift you have to walk up a few steps to reach it which is far from ideal.

Overall this is a very good-value choice if you don't lust after staying in a boutique hotel.

Thumbs up: Fairly comfortable rooms in a central location

Thumbs down: Steps up to access lift, curtains too small for windows
