It was not by chance that the former sultans chose to reside in this magnificent summer palace on the western shore of the Bosphorus. It would be hard to find a more beautiful setting.
Converted into a hotel in 2008, the palace's 170 rooms and suites are decorated in shades of beige, in an Ottoman style reinterpreted in a more contemporary manner. Large windows offer an outstanding vista of the straits, and the promise of a magical and romantic night. Below, the green garden invites you to stroll, unless you prefer a drink or dinner on the beautiful white marble terrace facing the river.
If time permits, enjoy the swimming pool that overlooks the Bosphorus. At the spa, one of the most famous in Istanbul, try the Turkish bath or one of the oriental treatments. Finally, the height of originality, hop on a water taxi directly from the dock of the hotel.
