Positive Reviews

Convenient location

Guests like that the Skalion in Istanbul, Turkey, is closely situated to main attractions of the city. The Grand Bazaar is close by and the Sultanahmed Square and Blue Mosque are only about a ten-minute walk. The nearest metro is only five minutes away. Kumpaki fish restaurants are conveniently close by.

Excellent staff

Most guests say that the staff of the hotel is the one that makes it the best for them. From the housekeeping staff to the concierge to the front desk personnel, they say that every single member of the staff is warm, helpful and sincere.

Good spa; wonderful breakfast and amenities

Guests say that the rooms and bathrooms are small but with adequate facilities. They liked the excellent and clean Turkish Bath and Spa and say they find them very enjoyable and relaxing. Breakfast has a wonderful selection with fruits, pastries and cereals. Guests say that complimentary fresh fruits are also sent up to their rooms, which they think is a nice gesture.

Negative Reviews

Noisy and cramped rooms

Many guests say that the rooms are quite noisy as the windows face the street. Inside the hotel they can constantly hear the sound of water taps running. Some rooms have a big beam running through them which guests say made the rooms cramped.

Spa services chargeable

Some guests say that they booked the hotel for its spa but were disappointed that there are charges applicable for the spa services. The spa also closes very early. Guests say they have to book massages and other services a day before and nothing can be indulged on an impromptu fancy.

Extra for juice

Most guests did not like that fruit juice at breakfast carries an extra charge. They also did not like that the serving staff expected to be tipped at breakfast time.
