The Hotel is very close to the old city, you can go walking to the mosques and to the Bazar's. The hotel's staff are very kindly and helpful the food is very good and varied The room's equipment is good, a negative thing is that you can't open the window and if you didn't got a sea view room you will see on window a small street with old buildings in bad condition.

Room Tip: Rooms with sea view are much better than the other side's

Hotel staffs are kindly and helpful. The room is comfortable. The location is very convenience because I can go to famous temples and museums by foot. The hotel is located by the sea. I went to walk along the coast. It was really fine.

Being not so far from the airport, being located in the neighbourhood of many historical places in Sultanahmet and offering breakfast together with the sea view, Kalyon Hotel is a nice hotel to stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable, hotel staff is very kind and helpful.

Room Tip: Book a room with a sea view.

I cannot speak more highly of the Kalyon Hotel. The staff are really, really helpful, our room was large with fantastic views over the sea (make sure you book a sea view room as the views at the back are not good). It is not a large hotel and that makes it all the more friendly. The decor is modern and everywhere is spotless. It is within easy walking distance to all the tourist attractions and there are heaps of restaurants nearby. Plus you can have a nice stroll along the waterfront, which is superb in the early evening. I would not hesitate to stay again the next time we are in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Book a room with sea views - you'll thank yourself.

There , on European side of Istanbul , just under Blue Moscue is hotel Kalyon. Perfect place for start exploring the old Ottoman history places and perfect distance from Ataturk Airport and ferry port.
Hotel stuff on reception was very helpfull and profesional, always polite and ready to help. Rooms are spacious and have good free WI-fi, perfect bads with selection of 4 different kind of pillows, coffe maker, big flat TV and mini bar. My room was on the first flour and with a view at Marmara sea. Selection of wines in hotel bar is very wide , but the waiters are too young to help You with the choice. Breakfast was very European , with a little of famous Turkish meals. That is something that should be changed by my opinion. All the Istanbul historical places and bazars are near and easy reachable by foot and hotel share one slide of old Constantinopolis defending wall.
After two days spent in hotel Kalyon, I strongly recomend this hotel to anyone has business in Instabul and wants to explore it history places.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view.

20 minutes walking distance from Aya Sophia and the Hippodrome area - brilliant!
Though the back gate you can walk up to Sultanahmet area with a great selection of restaurants en route! Don't try and walk back from the city using the front entrance, it's long with a lot of traffic.
The most of the staff were very helpful and friendly, especially concierge.
There is a big variation in the size of the rooms, the classic rooms are small and noisy as they face the back of the property. The grand classic room is much more spacious with couch, breakfast bar and ocean facing plus less noise. The rooms are serviced twice daily, pillow menu, complimentary turn down chocolates and complimentary water.

Room Tip: Request ocean facing for a good sleep!
