    • To know

    • In the heart of the Sultanahmet, the Empire Palace benefits from an ideal location to visit the monuments, the mosques (a 5 minute walk away), the great bazar, and to fully enjoy the historical area. The airport is 30 minutes away (when there are not too many traffic jams).

    • The 35 rooms are average in size but comfortably equipped. Decorated in a classic way (wood flooring, wooden furniture and red velvet), it has a warm atmosphere. They have a satellite television, a clock, a direct telephone, a mini bar and a safe. The bathrooms are very spacious but a bit dark. Clean, they are tiled and have numerous hospitality products, a hair-dryer and a bathtub with a shower.
    • This hotel has been part of the Best Western chain since 2004, when it was first renovated. The inside of the hotel respects the style of the façade, in Ottoman architecture. The hotel has 35 rooms in 4 floors. The wooden furniture of the lobby and the rooms recalls the universe of the Empire era. The atmosphere is indeed classic and warm. In the basement you can enjoy a hammam and, on the top floor, there is a restaurant with a view over the historical area, the Topkapi palace and in the background the sea of Marmara.
    • On the roof, the restaurant room is made of glass and offers a nice view over the Sultanahmet and the sea of Marmara. Meals are taken in this setting. The hotel fits around the schedules of the residents. You will be offered a menu with Turkish specialities or a typical Turkish menu whenever you want during the day. The breakfast, varied buffet style, is served between 7 am and 10.30 am.
    • The hammam in the basement offers relaxation after a day of sight-seeing. It offers massages.

    • Sumahan On The Water Sumahan On The Water Sumahan On The Water
      • Easyopinions -
      • Value for money 6.8
      • Location 3.0

      As its name indicates, the Sumahan on the Water is a little world on the water. Inside, it displays a balance of lines and shapes that create a modern style and is never cold. This is a bit of a surprise given the exterior aspect of the building, which management wanted to keep as nondescript as possible.
      This effort to go unnoticed speaks of the attention afforded to the guests, in terms of welcome, service, and cuisine. The Sumahan blends luxury and attention to detail together with know-how, efficiency, good taste, and quality.
      It also commands one of the finest views of the Bosphorus there is. It really is in a league of its own.
