Location
  • Leave your bags in one of the 20 stunning suites and walk up to the top floor for a traditional Turkish tea or cocktail. Sip it sitting down on the huge comfy sofa by the ornamental fireplace and let your mind relax before hitting the town.

    After your exhausting evening out, you’ll retire in one of the suites at this cleverly restored four-storey mansion built in 1890′s. Each bedroom is a masterful concoction of traditional features emphasised by a few modern touches.

    Good to Know

    While the hotel provides a satisfying affair at breakfast, it doesn’t have a real restaurant but that’s hardly an issue in the heart of Taksim.

    Many of the suites have in-room showers which may not be for everyone and also rooms at the back can be noisy since they are overlooking a restaurant’s terrace.

    Eat & Drink
