This was my first ever stay at a Wyndham hotel. The Wyndham Kalamis Marina in Kadikoy is located in a central area not far from Bagdat Avenue, a major shopping and lifestyle area in Asian Istanbul. The hotel has excellent facilities, including a nice lobby, comfortable rooms, a beautiful spa and gym and a rooftop pool with panoramic views of the marina. Staff are extremely helpful and courteous although some struggle with English. Both the customer relations manager and the concierge were very helpful in seekig feedback and giving advice. The food manager was apologetic about his staff's skills and promised improved performance in the future. The area around the hotel is very nice and including a neighboring club with an excellent restaurant, a pub, a Magros store and further away there are several cafes, restaurants and fruit and vegetable sellers. Taxis are available from the hotel yet I tried to avoid them whenever possible due to their tendency to take longer routes and to overcharge. This part of Istanbul is modern, clean, nicely designed and is more family-oriented than the older European side. I had a great stay at the Wyndham Kalamis Marina and would definitely return. I will sum it up with the following description "an elegant hotel with decent people."
