                5.4

                Windows of most rooms face major high way with heavy traffic. Too noisy if they don't install sound proof widows. Also, given proximity to the sea, chances of waking up to loud noise of motor fishing boats at 5am is almost guaranteed.

              • Older travelers

                Location

                Room walls paper thin could hear everything next door! Staff sometimes dismissive. Not power outlets available had to unplug TV. Shower very small space

              • Couple
                5.4

                Staff was professional and easy to communicate with. Nice stylish lobby and terrace (though we did not try the food). Well-stocked mini-bar and decent room amenities for the price. Also a reliable wifi connection (which not every hotel can boast).

                We had to check out after two nights and move to another hotel because the bed was extremely uncomfortable. Not only could we feel the spring and wires but the mattress itself was as hard as a plank of wood. It was a painful experience and, though we were offered some sort of "bed softener", we were not prepared to risk another night of this. Also, the location was not the most convenient. If you're looking for a waterfront hotel then it's fine, but if you're here for the sights of Sultanahmet and the Bazaar you should know that it's a 10-minute up-hill walk. Perhaps it was our fault, but we always had trouble finding our way back to the hotel's inconspicuous back entrance and so the walk back to the hotel turned into a long walk across the beach front to the hotel's main entrance. Finally, breakfast is not included but instead costs a hugely-overpriced 14 euros per person.

                A very organised facility with excellent staff

              • Couple
                9.2

                Great location, near the main city attracts, Comfortably big room space, variety of breakfast buffet in the terras overlooking the sea with wonderful sights, friendly staff, great Marmara sea view, I would defiantly come back to Kalyon Hotel and recommend it to others.

                1- the TV chanels was limited with only three English speaking channels, the rest were all turkish. 2- they don't have Airport transfer service to and from Sabiha Gokcen Airport.

              • Couple
                7.4

                Good location (max 10 min walk from St Sofia and Blue Mosque), nice room but really not "typical". Seems more a business hotel than a lesiure one.

                Because of the traffic on the road in front of the hotel, rooms with sea wiew and restaurant are quite noisy. Friendly staff but not very efficient : we had to ask at least 5 times for an iron and a board...

              • Couple
                8.2

                Great ocean view from the room. Breakfast was delicious and very rich in variety.

                Some noises of cars crossing by the main road when you open the window during the day.

              • Single
                8.8

                Everything was ok in hotel except breakfast. ;; breakfast was not included in the price. And the price of the breakfast was extremly high. As 15 euro . this wonderful hotel is the first hotel I ve ever seen that serves breakfast with an additional price. And be careful . by direct booking via phone ,they give the price excluding 18 % vat. And at the bill you would see an additional 18% vat .

                Doors from one room to another - it's terrible to listen how someone sneeze in next room

                Great location on the Marmara Sea and walking distance to so much in Old Sultanahmet...great service from the front desk with suggestions and directions.

                A very pleasent environment, wonderful staff which acted immediatly if there was something they could help with. Also helpful with organising sightseeing, etc. A good location, short distance to walk to intersting places. A very nice view to the seaside.

                It is not a certain negative point but it is a bit noisy between the rooms, if somebody puts on the television in the next room it is easy to hear.

                I could not fault this property. I could not believe that it is only a 4 star rating as to me it was a 5 star plus. The staff were very helpful and friendly - especially in the restaurant. The rooms were spotless and we had a fantastic view across the Marama sea.

                I could not fault this hotel.
