Know It All

Hit the spot
On the Asian banks of the Bosphorus – with a private launch.

Come here for...
● A brilliant boutique address on the Bosphorus. ● Stylish Loft suites overlooking the water. ● A cool retreat from the city-centre mayhem.

Amenities
Guests can cross the water in Sumahan's private launch, de-stress in the intimate spa, flick through a photography book in the library, or chow down on fresh seafood at the Waterfront terrace restaurant. There's wi-fi throughout.

Good to know
You're well away from the hustle-bustle, but a 30-minute cab ride from town.

Bedtime...

20 rooms, including 13 suites.

Special features
Spacious rooms all look directly out over the Bosphorus. Each has a luxury bathroom, and some duplex Loft suites boast a private hammam.

Pillow Talk
As well as spectacular views, Duplex Loft suites also have a private terraced garden and (in some) a private hammam.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Dining on the scenic Waterfront Terrace Restaurant offers stunning views and drool-worthy menus. Freshly caught seafood and Mediterranean classic sit alongside Turkish favourites such as baked chicken with apple sauce and the ubiquitous kebab with yoghurt. Desserts are delicious too.

Breakfast
Served until 10:30. Delicious breakfasts include a mezze-style selection of olives, jams, local cheeses and Turkish style bagels.

Room service

Available 24 hours.

See & Do

See & Do
Marvel at the opulence of the Ottoman palaces of Dolmabahce – the Ottoman sultan's grand home on the shores of the Bosphorus – and Topkapi, with its famous harem. Admire the perfect symmetry of the Blue Mosque, and visit one of the scores of museums celebrating Istanbul's colourful  history. A boat trip to the Princes' Islands – where transport is still on horse and buggy – makes a great day out of the city.

Spa
Sumahan's intimate spa – not to be missed – will ensure you feel better when you leave than when you arrived. Work up a steam in the sleek marble hammam, or be pummelled and oiled with Shiatsu or Swedish massage, aromatherapy or reflexology. Gym bunnies can get their fix in the small but fully equipped gym.

Diary Dates

The Arts comes to Istanbul for the Biennial, with a feast of film, modern art and music.
