Staff were wonderful, especially Mr Talip, who was so kind to us on check-in. Location is very good too - 10 mins walk from the tram station, and about 20 mins walk from Blue Mosque etc. There are lots of shops, restaurants, cafes in the area too.
Everything but mainly location, cleanness and staff friendliness. Special thanks to Talip who was really very helpful and professional.
Skalion is very close to Grand Bazaar, in an area that seems not as touristic as close to Sultanamet. From here we walked to Grand bazaar and then to Suleymaniye Cami, which in my opinion is extraordinary and more beautiful than even the Blue Mosque. All the staffs are lovely and very helpful. The service is superb!
The hotel and the staff you feel like you are in 5 stars hotel
The distance between the hotel and the Bayzaat tram station is about 10 min walking
This hotel made my family feel so welcome!Hospitality was exceptionally good and everything was just too perfect!Will stay here again anytime
them most like thing there is work staff
there were no wall insulation between the rooms
We received excellent service from Mehmet and Talip, they even help us book a tour. This type of service is rear. We stayed at other hotels in Turkey but nobody could match the service of the Skalion hotel staff.
Very good location close to fish market/ restaurants, shops, tourist area like grand bazar, blue mosque, etc. all within a walking distance. Great and helpful staff especially Talib. Comfortable facility with good breakfast.
The hotel is located down a hill which was a little bit difficult to climb with the baby stroller but it was ok for us
- Stuff are very friendly and helpful - breakfast is very successful - it is worth to stay for this price
Really good hotel for the price I have no complains at all.Food was good.Really clean hotel.
The staff were lovely just that they need to make an effort to speak English or learn to.
The courtesy of staff, very helpful , front desk, Mehmet, Ozan, Talip, Asli very helpful, made our stay very enjoyable. The lady from customer service very helpful and courteous. Thank you for the lovely and enjoyable stay to the staff.
Hot water took a while to come and room took time to get heated.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Skalion Hotel. We enjoyed the atmoshere and the rooms were very comfortable. The highlight of the experience was the incredible service we received from all staff members. We would personally like to thank Yunus for being there to take care of whatever we needed and whom we became very good friends with. We also have to thank Birgul for her unending support and advice at breakfast everyday, Muammer for his excellent service at night and the delicious turkish tea. Sehriban was friendly and very helpful and all the kitchen staff for the awesome breakfast that we looked forward to every morning. Last but not least we would like to thank Mr Talip and Mr Ozan and Mr Mehmet at reception and Adnan for opening the door with a smile when we left everyday. Skalion was warm and pleasurable and I would without hesitation, recommend this hotel to anyone planning their Istanbul trip.
Loved every bit of Istanbul, so no negatives. However, only negative I can vouch for is that you should watch the taxi drivers as I was given false change, and I advise using cash over credit card as my credit card was cloned.
We stayed at the hotel for a week in December 2014 and loved it! The room was great and the staff were wonderful. We can't thank Mehmet, Belal, Talip, Adnan, Birgul and Bilur enough! They made our stay very memorable and we hope to visit again in the future! The hotel is within walking distance to all major attractions in Istanbul and the breakfast was so nice!! Definitely worth taking a chance with this hotel.
The service was excellent, couldn't ask for any better, they helped us with everything we asked for and everything regarding transportation from and to the airport were no problem at all. The room was cleaned every day, not just a fixed bed, so that was well appreciated.The breakfast was ok, but could been a bit more international, and the bread were cut in tiny pieces so it was hard do make a sandwich but besides that it was good!
So much noice from everywhere! The noice from outside the hotell, is not the hotells fault, but there was so much noice coming from the pipes and those kind of noises were on all the time. I probably had the worst sleep ever on a hotel due to this, so I did not get a vacation where I could charge my batteries for upcoming work and studies. Since we had very bad weather, it would be nice to have a drink at the lounge bar, instead of going out in the cold rain, but there were no alcohol in the bar.
The corridor was alwais busy of cleaning prrsonnel and stuff
We were welcomed with warmth and a smile by mehmet at reception. Taliep later helped and assisted us in everyway he possibly could.talipe and mehmet went out of there way last minute to arrange a most memorable tour to bursa. All the staff went the extra mile to make our stay most memorable. Mehmur the bell boy/porter was also great. All staff at skalion hotel have left there warmth and hospitality which will be unforgettable to us.skalion hotel value for money excellent breakfast welcoming staff ,well furnished rooms south african style lol,and to top it all unexpeced gifts (boxes of turkish delights fruit platter and memorabilia s of Turkey. Most amazing.wow wow wow. Heartfelt thanks to one and ALL.HIghly recommend ed.
I travelled with my daughter and baby granddaughter and the staff moved us to a larger room with a cot on request. They were very child friendly. Breakfast was excellent and served in bright spacious dining room. I would heartily recommend this hotel
Streets nearby were hilly and difficult with a buggy
Clean and spacious rooms Good location Helpful staff breakfast was very good
Me and my family stayed in Skalion for 11 nights and the staff made our visit a wonderful one. Thanks to Mehmet, Bilal, Sabri, Adnan, etc for their assistance and help during our long stay recently. We enjoyed our stay very much and we would come back to this hotel in the future if we go back to Istanbul. The breakfast was good (only wish it would have more variety for long stay guests like us). Thanks everyone....
(1) The rooms were a bit small (2) The hot water in the bathroom was not consistent (imagine if you don't have hot water during winter) (3) There's a door (connecting to the service area) in my room that was not locked. Location was good (though we have to climb the hill every single day - but it was a very good exercise though...).
The staff are excellent and will look after you like gold. The location is a short walk to the Grand Bazzar and light rail station which then provides access to everything you will want to see in and around the city.
Arrived late in the evening and was greeted by very friendly and welcoming staff. The rooms booked were of fantastic value and would definately return here again when we next visit Istanbul. It is very close to the main attractions and as we were short of time this was of importance and with a map in hand was only 10 minutes away from everything.
There was nothing I didn't like.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Skalion Hotel. Talip, Bakrile, Ozan, Sebrim and all the other staff were most helpful in making sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Breakfast was superb every morning.
The staff were extremely friendly and the hotel is luxurious and comfortable. Everything was provided, rooms were always clean and immaculate.
The location isn't the best,it is right at the bottom of a hill which me and my partner had to walk up everyday in order to go to Sultanahmet etc. apart from this, I would definately book at this hotel again.
Their welcoming smile, quick response, friendly attitude, super breakfast, clean rooms and hotel, best support from personnel such as Talip who helped us in finding good tour package plus shopping bazar ...Also Manger Ozone, Mehmet, Adnan, Sabri, Maitre Billur and birgul and Master Chef and all faculties
