ReserveInquireView Rates

A delightful boutique hotel of outstanding individuality and charm created in a converted, refurbished 19th century Ottoman mansion, proud to uphold the traditions of Old World Turkish hospitality. Like in old Ottoman Turkish mansions, an unpretentious facade conceals an interior reminiscent of the delicacy of Wedgwood china or a Fabergé egg.

ACCOMMODATION : The hotel has 17 rooms, each designated by the type of bed(s) with which it is furnished: i.e., Double Room or Twin Room. An exception is the special Princess Room where the centerpiece four-poster bed evokes the long-forgotten era of crinolines and morning jackets. A stay here is a jaunt into the past, but with modern conveniences included.

All of our rooms are comfortable and spotless; each is individually decorated with great care and finesse to reflect the refined graces of the 19th century.

Each room has air-conditioning, direct dial telephone, mini bar, cable TV (with CNN, BBC World, TV5, RTL, RAI1, etc.), hardwood parquet floors accented with lovely Turkish rugs, translucent curtains as well as opaque drapes to keep out sunlight when you wish, fully tiled private bathroom with enclosed shower cabin, hair dryer, WC, hot and cold water always available.

HOTEL FACILITIES : A descriptive overview of some of these important accessory features of the hotel begins with the forecourt patio where in warm weather guests can relax with a book, enjoy an aperitif surrounded by blooming flowers or just watch the world stroll by. Next comes the elegant, fetchingly furnished hotel Lobby & Lounge, a popular meeting point and the favorite place to read the daily newspaper, and should you want to check or send e-mail, or see what the weather is like at home or at your next destination, you don’t have to go looking for Internet access since you can have it right on the hotel premises – just ask at the Reception. The receptionist will also take your orders for our 24-hour room service, make transportation arrangements, and accept your valuables for safe-deposit storage.

Accessible from the lobby or any other floor by a marble stairway or elevator (lift) is one of the hotel’s pre-eminent features, the Rooftop Terrace, Café & Restaurant, a serenely glorious world of delightful dining and stunning vistas. Here the guests start their day invigorated by a wholesome open-buffet breakfast, enchanted by spectacular views of the city, the waters of the Bosphorus, the Sea of Marmara, Princes’ Islands and the shores of Asia.

Here the guests start their day invigorated by a wholesome open-buffet breakfast, enchanted by spectacular views of the city, the waters of the Bosphorus, the Sea of Marmara, Princes’ Islands and the shores of Asia. The great basilica of Hagia Sophia seems almost close enough to touch, as is the Imperial Gate of Topkapi Palace, while the nearby Blue Mosque looms above the massive former Sultan Ahmet prison, now converted into a noted hotel.

At night, the sweeping panorama glitters like all the gems in the Sultan’s treasury, and close at hand flashes the lighthouse that achieved fame through the film “Topkapi” starring Melina Mercouri, Tony Curtis and Peter Ustinoff. It is no wonder then that this breathtaking setting appeals so much to hotel guest and non-residents alike, making it the favorite place to dine in style on delicious food (fish highly recommended) or just dally over a beverage in leisure.

On a more strenuous note, fitness fans will be pleased to find the hotel neighborhood highly suitable for jogging. In fact, running on the exact site of the historic Hippodrome where Roman chariots raced nearly two millennia ago may rank among the highlights of your visit.

Of more mundane interest - but central to our concept of care for the guests’ well-being and safety - are smoke-detectors placed in all rooms and public spaces of the hotel, and fire-escape stairs separate from the main staircase.
