The House Hotel Bosphorus

The House Hotel Bosphorus

****

The House Hotel Bosphorus in Istanbul is a one-time palace still standing at the edge of Europe. Old-school opulence mixes with contemporary Autoban design: it’s just as grand, but stand-out furniture and lighting bring it up to date.

Highlights:

  • Spectacular views overlooking Asia from Europe’s edge

    Stylish Autoban-designed interiors

    Great nightlife, with the city’s top club right next door

Smith extra

For members staying one or two nights, the hotel's signature cocktail, the Bosphorus Blue, in the lounge (overlooking the Bosphorus) on arrival. For members staying three or more nights, dinner for two (excluding drinks).

In the know

Also need to know:

In-room massages can be arranged. The historic building was once home to the Balyan clan, an architectural-design dynasty in Ottoman days.

Packing tips:

Ortakoy may be an old fishing village, but these days it’s lively, especially at night – so don’t forget glam gear for after-dark.

Dress code:

The name gives it away – smoking jackets and slippers are perfectly acceptable.

Sitting in the breezy lounge and library of the House Hotel Bosphorus, in the heart of the laid-back Ortakoy neighbourhood (it means, literally in Turkish ‘middle village’), the view is tranquil, historic: baroque old mansions rising on the far banks of Istanbul’s world-famous strait; teak-decked fishing boats meander under the grand Ortokoy Bridge; men on bicycles deliver bread to cafés lining Ortakoy’s laidback plaza. As Mrs Smith and I sip thick black Turkish coffee, it’s easy to imagine we’ve been transported back to the 18th century when Ortakoy was a small

It's quite a spread, with Eggs Benedict and omelettes, and traditional Turkish dishes such as gözleme and Yeni toast.
