Museum Hotel

The Antakya Hilton Museum Hotel is located alongside the ruins of the Church of St Peter, a well-known place of pilgrimage. Archaeological excavations carried out at the start of the construction work on the five-star hotel brought to light all kinds of ancient artefacts. The hotel’s construction was modified as a result of that important find. The building was raised to make room for a museum creating the first museum hotel in Turkey. The cube-shaped hotel rooms were stacked under the steel frame and the protective covering. Bridges and walkways connect the hotel rooms to terraces, gardens, the swimming pool. The lobby, the restaurant and the lounge are located directly above the archaeological museum.
