Lonely Planet review

This 1920s eclectic-style building was once owned by the president of Syria, and contains two dozen tastefully furnished rooms across four floors. The restaurant is in an open courtyard (once an internal garden with ogee arches) that is covered in chillier months. For those who adore old-timer hotels, there is bucketloads of atmosphere to lap up here.

Due to the quirky nature of the room setup, note that not all rooms have windows, so check when you book. The atmospheric stone bar features live music from 11pm to 2.30am most weekends, so if you're a light sleeper you may be more comfortable elsewhere.

Our independent authors have visited The Liwan Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Antakya (Hatay).
