    Location 7.54 /10

    The Yasmak Sultan is located in Sirkeci area on the slope of the hill that descends from the Topkapi Palace right down to the Marmara sea. You are a 5 minute walk from the palace and mosques and 25 minutes by car from the airport which is 11 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The 84 rooms are quite large, with yellow wallpaper and a dark green carpet. They have air-conditioning and satellite television, a telephone with direct line, and a small minibar and safe. The bathroom has a tub, toilet and a hair dryer. Room service means you can order a sandwich or dessert 24h a day.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Built in 1965, the Yasmak Sultan was entirely renovated in 1998. In yellow and white wood, its facade recalls former Ottoman residences. Yellow is the dominant colour in the hotel, as in the lobby. At the far end of the lobby is the hotel's bar. This is where you can come for a drink if you wish to make the most of the small basement night club (open in summer only). The roof has been turned into a terrace. It has a great view of the Bosphorus, the Topkapi Palace, the Saint-Sophie Mosque, the Dolmabahce Palace and Galata tower. In the basement there is a small fitness centre (at extra cost), with a few gym machines, a sauna, a power shower and a nice little hammam.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The hotel's unique restaurant serves breakfast buffets. For lunch and dinner there is a choice between a set menu and limited a la carte menu of Turkish specialities (2 fish dishes, 4 salads, 5 main courses and 8 grills). In summer, it is possible to eat on the panoramic terrace.

    To know

    For the view of the Saint-Sophie Mosque, ask for rooms 210, 310, 410, 509 or 510. The higher up you are, the better the view will be, and you will be further removed from the beeping horns. Note that you must pass the rooms on the 5th floor to reach the terrace. So these rooms can get a bit noisy.

      This is not a luxury hotel. Its location is perfect for discovering the town (on foot or by taking a tram or taxi).
      Maybe choose to have lunch and/or dinner away from the hotel, as the food services here are limited, without forgetting the bar, which isn't very attractive.

      • 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.
