Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.

Very nice restaurant with wonderful view of Bosporus and the bridge. The quality of the food is excellent, service very attentive, whole Ambiente very pleasant. Very recommendable for both meat and fish dishes. The menu has both European-style and Turkish dishes.
The best Doner in Istanbul.
Very high quality and always delicious Doner. tasty lentil soup and delicious Kunafe :))
If you want to try a real Doner and Iskender Kebab, it is the best choice.
Its a fine dining restaurant, located on the water front giving a beautiful view of the Bosphorus bridge while having your meal, in particular at night when the bridge is lit up.
The system is to choose your fish from the shelf and then customise your dish according to your taste.
An excellent place for sea-food lovers and strongly recommended.

A very clean and well presented hotel. The staff are very helpful and spoke good English. The breakfast was typically Turkish in style and was very enjoyable.. The gym was well kitted out and not very busy.
