Absolutely great, beautiful, very well and comfortably positioned hotel. The staff is super friendly, room is just beautiful, view from the window - superb. Breakfast could be better, but I joined only once for the first 10 mins when food was still being prepared, can't judge. All in all - great, recommended

I stayed for a week in a suite overlooking the Bosphorus - reasonably priced - as part of my annual summer holiday treat. The views from the two small terraces provided by the suite were the most dramatic that I have ever had. Ever. I chose the hotel because I wanted to be able to sit and read in the... More

Exquisite breakfast and restaurant. Great rooms with views of the Ortakoy Mosque and the Bosphorous river. Very close to many bars and restaurants. The gym, however, is quite small. Make sure to get a room that faces out onto the river.

The working staff were very lovely, but the Owner/Manager was a Money grabber!

Lovely, well-designed interiors. The rooms were on the small side, but comfortable and of a high standard. Our room had a small balcony looking out on to the Bosphorus. It's a beautiful spot at sunset if you don't mind the lively sounds from downstairs. We enjoyed it actually, as House Cafe plays nice music and attracts quite a trendy crowd.... More

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
