We enjoyed our stay at the Skalion Hotel. Staff are charming (and genuinely pleasant and helpful!) The bedrooms are comfy enough if a little on the small side. What was slightly disappointing was that we booked a family room 2.5 months in advance, but upon arrival were given 2 smaller rooms (albeit with more beds than expected) and when we queried it we were told we couldn't switch to a family room until the last night of our 3-night stay (no point!) In fact the arrangement grew to suit us and we didn't really mind, but let's be honest, this should never have happened. One of the rooms (210) smelled of smoke throughout the three days; we didn't let it bother us, but you might want to request avoiding that room specifically if it's an issue for you. The hotel is on a busy street, close to Sultanahmet/Blue Mosque (to the east) and the Grand Bazaar (to the north). With our children aged 4-7, we walked everywhere (despite the masses of traffic, both human - on tiny/ non-existent pavements - and vehicular) so if the hustle and bustle isn't an issue, it's certainly a great location to set out from. Alternatively, if you want a slower, more expensive, but less energetic option - hail a taxi!

Room Tip: As mentioned in the review, avoid Room 210 if you don't like the smell of smoke, and it's my...

My husband and I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights in June 2014
it exceeded our expectations as far as the standard of the room and breakfast. the staff were very helpful. The location was very convenient though the neighborhood left something to be wanted, especially after dark. overall, highly recommended.

We have just stayed in this hotel. We went as a family with 3 children. It is located near the Kumkapi restaurants, a few metres from Beyazit Tram station, walking distance (about 15 minutes) from Sultanahmet area (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern etc). We had two interconnected rooms which although they had no view they enabled us to watch tv in the evening without disturbing our children sleep.They were very clean and both included televisions, desks, wardrobe, minibar etc. Staff is very friendly, We were welcomed with a free welcome drink, and helped us with out luggage. Receptionists and customer relations lady speak very good English. They also guided with directions etc. Buffet Breakfast was also excellent. Waiters too are very friendly and helpful. Hotel also had free wi-fi which was also very good.
