The hotel is located at a fantastic spot in Istanbul. Since, we have been informed that the traffic jam is a catastrophe in Istanbul, our choice was the best ever … Thanks to its fantastic spot, we had the chance to visit beautiful historical places such as Sultanahmet, Blue Mosque, Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia and Grand Bazaar) in a very...

My husband and I choose Kalyon for our honeymoon and it was a good decision. Very kind and professional staff and very clean rooms. Our room was on the first floor with a sea view. The best about this hotel -its in Sultanahmet so the Blue mosque, Topkapi, the Arasta Bazar, Hagia Sofia..are just few minutes away. We liked the... More

I've reviewed this hotel last year, and having to be in and out of Istanbul on a recent trip, I've decided not to reinvent the wheel, and hit a place I'm familiar with. It did not disappoint. Had a completely different type of a room, from last time (city view vs. water view). It was clean, spacious, with all necessary... More

Near sulthan ahmed and galata / taksim convenient business hotel without any extras. Avoid the breakfast as it is american style, canned stuff, but go to nearby nice city centre breakfast if you have the time. Depending on traffic jams, which plague Istanbul, within short time of Ataurk Airport. Avoid rooms on lower floor, opt for floor 1 and above.

I mostly stay on busines trips at the Kalyon. They have quite modern sea view rooms out to the front. The hotel in general is nice for a business trip since the access from the airport is easy by taxi and it is in walking distance to the old town (5 minutes). The breakfast is average for western taste.

We stayed there for 4 nights from 28th December 2013 to 1st January 2014. We couldn't fault a thing about it. All the staff were so helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The cleaning staff were excellent and the hotel is spotlessly clean. We would highly recommend staying there. The Turkish people were really nice.

Very helpful staff, friendly and congenial. Room and bath are very clean and comfortable. Large fluffy towels. A great location and a great place to stay. Food was excellent. Breakfast is not included, at least wasn't for us.

Sea view quite and yet who thin an easy access to all the sights and important places in sultan Ahmed Very friendly staff. Clean. Haven't tried the restaurant the only thing they need to work on is their sound proofing of the rooms. But would definitely recommend it and go back
