    Good

    Location

    Hotel charged me 30 Euro per night to bring guest for a few houres in the room , even though I booked a double room. This was not part of the contract , nor was this condition told to me by you before I booked the room. Guest was in my room for 1& half houres only & not o/night. I want refund of 30 Euro they charged me They also turned off air conditioning at front desk & I had to request it to be turned on every day.

    The sincerity of the staff was beyond belief. They were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Thank you very much Kalyon for the awesome stay.

    The ventilation in the smoking room could use some fine tuning

    Very friendly and helpful staff at the reception. The rooms were nice and there was free Wifi in the hotel. Location is great for visiting the touristy sites in the old town.

    Expensive restaurant, so would really suggest to eat and drink elsewhere.

    Very good

    The location is perfect, close to the Blue Mosque and Santa Sofia. Some of the staff are very good some others just average, is in summary,big differentes in treatment and profesionalism. In the photos is not clear that the rooms facing the sea are facing too a freeway busy and noisy. The breakfast is good, the rooms are good.

    Noisy location, by a really busy street and the windows do not isolate enough.

    Excellent guest relations. They went out of their way to assist in finding the shortest route for the sight seeings and also locating other locations. Excellent location. Very close to all the sight seeing places in Sultanahmet. Excellent food. The hotel restuarant offered great food ..

    The windows of the backside rooms look to the ruins of old buildings. It is boring.
