Very nice sea view from the room. The room was not that big and so the bed. The breakfast resturant were also over looking the sea wich is very romantic at night. Food were very nice. The room price were very good. However there were no swimming pool and fittness center.

I have stayed in many hotels around the world including in Istanbul and when I go shopping in the city, many times the vendor has dropped bags for me at the concierge; they store them until I return to the hotel and it's a wonderful service that I think is quite normal. Do not expect this hotel to provide this... More

I stayed there for one night. The hotel has no gym, and non are nearby. The rooms have very poor sound isolation and are pretty small. Internet was poor and the signal was not reaching my room. The hotel had one venue for breakfast and any other meal. The location was not the best for tourists but was very suitable... More

We were not booked into this hotel but booked at the Armada hotel just off kennedy street. However with a mess up of our confirmed booking and no room available it was not a problem. The staff at Armada were so apologetic and professional in their handling of this we have nothing but praise for them. They organised accommodation at... More

The Kalyon has clean rooms and nice hallways with a historic ship theme. It has a locked back door that leads to Sultan Ahmed ( where there are plenty of touristic activites). Ask them to open it for you each time. It seems it is kept a secret so you can use there expensive restaurant. Rooms do not come with... More

Stayed here while I was in Istanbul I have to say location is the best, rooms a very clean, eat your breakfast outdoors by the sea and the staff are always there to help. If I visit Istanbul again I will rebook this hotel as the personal service you get counts

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
