Vault Karaköy: a bank converted into a hotel

charm

Chic and discreet, Vault Karaköy is in a 19th-century building that once housed an Ottoman bank.

Just steps from the Galata Bridge and the vibrant district of Karaköy, this 63 room boutique hotel is a haven of charm and elegance, popular with the affluent 35-50 crowd. The bourgeois setting is precious, intimate, and homey, with wood panelling and trim in beige, taupe, and black.

The classic 19th century decor is enhanced by contemporary furniture, and the bank vault is now a bar and wine cellar. At the dinner hour, you'll appreciate the restaurant, Kasa Lokanta, both for its stunning scenery and its seafood.

The rooms are bright, with antique wooden floors and views of the Bosphorus or Topkapi. The bathrooms are in green and grey marble, with Lokum bath products, as a foretaste of the Turkish bath in the hotels spa.
