Modern luxury in Istanbul. House Hotel Bosphorus.


The House Hotel Bosphorus hotel is located across Ortaköy Mosque in Ortaköy, a neighborhood on the European side of Istanbul very well known for its food stalls and night life. The streets are packed with brick and wood buildings in cobblestone streets that lead down to the Ortaköy Mosque. The historic building hosting the hotel is the former home of Ottoman-era architect Simon Balian, a member of the Armenian family behind many of Istanbul’s landmark imperial buildings

The hotel offers 26 guest rooms and one of the best waterfront location near the mosque. This palatial retreat now combines interiors by local design group Autoban with breathtaking views over the Bosphorus. While other hotels in this part of Istanbul can offer similar views, none are as intimate or stylish as The House Hotel Bosphorus.

After crossing the hotel’s metal-framed front door, guests will be welcomed into a new world. Classical furnishings and some flashes of modern luxury work in complete harmony. The reception desk is a little clue of what is going to happen all over the floors both in public and private areas. Autoban has used brass and oak all over combining classic panelled walls with patterned wooden floors that turn into carpet as soon as you get into your room. Traditional furniture is mixed with mid-century lighting hanging from the beautiful historical ceilings that still keep the original mouldings and decorations. The top floor is given over to three panoramic penthouse suites with names inspired by legendary architects. From the terrace, which wraps around the hotel guests can see Europe, Asia and the cobblestone lanes of historic Ortaköy.
