Stayed 3 nights. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean, and the location was great if you want to be close to the big tourist sites such as the Blue Mosque which is a few minutes walk up the hill. The Grand Bazaar is about 15 mnutes by taxi, but its not too expensive -- the problem... More

The Kalyon Hotel was great during out stay in Istanbul. The staff was great and our room was clean and comfortable. The rooms were a bit small, but we still had plenty of room for our luggage and to move around freely. The beds were not that comfortable, but after a long day of touring the city, we were still...

The hotel is overlooking the see but only half of the rooms have see view (more expensive of course). The hotel is mainly a business hotel however the WIFI is terrible, very weak signal you have to sit next to the door to get a signal !! and you get disconnected every while. Room is spacious, quiet and clean. Breakfast... More

The location of this hotel is perfect for accessing the Sultanahmet by foot. It is was a shame and a scam that this wasn't explained to us our first night there. We arrived around 7pm. Upon check in we asked where we could go for a short, 10-15 minute walk and find some nice place to eat. We were told... More

Clean rooms, helpful polite staff and fabulous location for site seers. There is a terrace area where you can eat or lounge on the couches watching the boats come in. I honestly do not believe i have ever felt more relaxed than when i was sitting on those couches with a book and a glass of wine at sunset watching... More

Located by the sea. Quiet, courteous service. Good to spend the night before boarding at morning. Breakfast starts of 7. You can't have it, if you boat departure is before 8. Great place for an evening stroll.

The selling point of this place is the location and the view. You get a view on the Marmara sea (but I think you need to specify that while booking, otherwise, you may get a view on the old, little streets of Sultanahmet which isn't nearly as charming as it sounds, but rather claustrophobia-inducing). The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and... More

Of course it was a'smart deal'... However it's really a great place to stay in Istanbul - a really spacious room, view on the Marmara sea, and -through the back door- you are in the middle of Sultanahmet, where you find the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the grand bazaar just a few steps away. We'll be back on our... More
