  • Superb Partner Hotel in Kalkan's atmospheric Old Town

  • Beach club 5min walk

The original Kalkan Han was one of the first hotels created when the village initially began to attract visitors in the 1980s, and was very much THE place to stay back in the day. Fast forward to the 2020s and it’s once again highly desirable, thanks to a superb makeover by the owner of another perennial Kalkan favourite, the Salonika restaurant, where hotel guests can enjoy breakfast.

The new Kalkan Han is a true transformation, offering contemporary, beautifully finished rooms and suites right in the heart of the Old Town, with its characteristic cobbled streets and bougainvillea-draped Greek houses. You can choose between a stylish room with a traditional Ottoman-style balcony, or upgrade to one of the magnificent top floor suites. The top floor originally housed the hotel’s celebrated roof-top restaurant, and now this stunning location is a privilege reserved for the lucky occupants of just two suites. The views and outdoor space at this level are exceptional, and each suite comes with its own terrace Jacuzzi to make the most of both. It’s a wonderfully romantic spot for a nightcap after dinner in town, and if you only have eyes for each other, the suites also have self-catering facilities so you can cook in if you prefer.

Aside from the smart rooms and roof-level views, one of the greatest attractions of the hotel is its central location, ideal for a couple looking to sample some of the Old Town’s many restaurants and cafes right on the doorstep. The surrounding streets are bustling from around lunchtime onwards, so this is very much a place to enjoy holiday shopping, dining and perhaps a cocktail or two as well as the local beach clubs which are just a few minutes away on foot. The hotel rooms are double glazed and air-conditioned so you can sleep with the windows shut, and whilst we wouldn’t recommend it to those in search of a peaceful retreat, the streets fall much quieter by around 11.30pm and all music has to stop by midnight. For regulars and newcomers alike, the new Kalkan Han looks set to re-establish its reputation as one of the very best addresses in town.
