The House Hotel Galatasaray

The House Hotel Galatasaray

****

The House Hotel Galatasaray in Istanbul is a masterfully modernised mansion, elegantly imperial with a hint of contemporary magic. The four-storey building dates from 1850, but avant-garde designers Autoban waited until 2010 to arrive on the scene, mixing the old and the new: cast-iron banisters and original marble staircases with eye-catching lighting and jellyfish-resembling chandeliers. This is a lively spot too – one of the area's best restaurants is right behind the hotel.

Highlights:

  • Majestic, Autoban-remastered mansion

  • Ottoman architecture, with Rococo flamboyance

  • Close to Beyoglu’s antique-stocked basements

Smith extra

Fresh fruit on arrival; for Suite bookings or guests staying three nights or more, a two-course lunch including a glass of wine

Pets weighing in at 5kg or less can come along for €20.The street behind the hotel is home to one of the area's most popular restaurants (along with a cluster of other bars and eateries), and it can be lively late at night so be prepared for the sounds of revelry – rooms positioned at the front of the hotel are generally a bit more peaceful.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Centuries-past plasterwork and pristine parquet flooring is the elegant backdrop to statement retro lighting, quirky marble ensuite bathrooms in this lovingly revived mansion in Cukurcuma reworked by designers du jour, Autoban. Just how Mr Smith and I have come to be wandering around the Galatasaray district searching for such splendour on a balmy evening is something of a story, too.

A year before, we were headed to the airport to hop a plane, that time to revel in a hip hotel in Miami, when we missed our plane out of JFK. This led to a few tears, some choice words, and a re-route to anothe

Dining information

Restaurant:

The top-floor restaurant is more of a lounge-bar hybrid, serving a choice selection of snacks and light meals rather than a full menu. The chilled-out atmosphere makes it a perfect post-bustle refuge after a day out in Istanbul. It’s decked out with leather sofas, Turkish tiles and a chalet-style pine ceiling. Breakfast is served here; pile plates high with fresh cakes and croissants.

Top table:

Nab a snuggle-friendly sofa by the fireplace.

Last orders:

Food is served from 7.30am until midnight, with breakfast running between 7.30am and 11.30am. Drinks are served until midnight.

Room service:

The full restaurant menu can be served in your room between 7.30am and midnight.

Hotel bar:

The bar is part of the top-floor lounge space. Sip a signature margarita or some Turkish Raki overlooking Cukurcuma’s winding streets and the Galata Tower.
