“Lovely, lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

First, the location of the property is stunning - situated on a hill overlooking the bright blue ocean below. The crisp white buildings are set among beautifully landscaped walkways and common spaces. The rooms are very comfortable and clean with lovely views. The new section of the hotel is really quite something! The owners recently acquired the buildings located right next to the original building. Instead of knocking the buildings down, they left the structures in tact. Tons of historical elements, fixtures, woodwork, etc. remain. Their attention to detail is evident from start to finish!

Add in a superb and hospitable staff and the lovely town of Kalkan, and you have all of the makings of a perfect, perfect place. I highly, highly recommend this place. A true gem!

A pretty hotel with somewhat small room. Try to get one with a veranda, as the views are really good. A somewhat thick and rough topsheet on the bed, no shampoo in the bath. Good, freshly prepared breakfast and a lovely roof deck to have a sun down drink. Great location, just steps from the bar / restaurant center of town but far enough away that there was no appreciable noise. Nice wife / husband team run the place.

Very kind and helpful staff - especially when my husband had a hospital emergency!
Chilled out and very relaxed atmosphere. A bit further from the beach than we anticipated.
Near to some very nice restauarants like Bouganville.

Room Tip: Try a sea view above ground level

Staying in Kalkan, at the White House, was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Turkey this year. I'd heard good things about Kalkan, and this hotel, but was so impressed when i arrived, that i cursed myself for not having booked in for longer!

The White House is run by extremely friendly, but not at all overbearing staff. I was welcomed by Marion, who made me feel at home right away. The hotel is beautifully maintained, and generally just beautiful! My room was really lovely, with a little balcony, a spotless bathroom, and a comfortable bed.

The best thing about this hotel was the breakfast. Served on the terrace with the extraordinary view over the bay, by lovely staff, it was generous and delicious.

I would thoroughly reccommend that if you visit Kalkan (which you absolutely should) that you stay here, you won't regret it!

This place is pleasant and comfortable. Our room was not huge, but was cheerful and cosy. The hotel is built around a lovely courtyard, and the breakfasts on the terrace was very nice. The hotel is also set in a quieter end of Kalkan, which is a very touristic but tasteful little place.

We have just returned from a trip to Kalkan having stayed in The White House. We had a great time and Halil, Marion and all the staff looked after us exceptionally well and nothing was too much trouble - although it is probably the norm for them to look after all their guests the same way.
The White House is well situated in Kalkan in a quiet location and it's just a short walk to the beach or shopping areas. The view on their website, from the breakfast/evening terrace, is exactly what you see. Super.
There is not a downside to The White House and we thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: Upper rooms facing south will give you a view of the sea.

We have just returned from a wonderful 4 day stay at The White House. Hussein, Hulya and Marion as well as all of their staff were incredibly friendly and certainly made us very welcome. The hotel itself is in a wonderful, central location on minutes walk to the water as well as wonderful restaurants, shops and bars. The room itself was very clean with airconditioning. The breakfast was delicious and freshly prepared in front of us of a morning. I couldn't recommend this hotel anymore and will certainly be returning.
