I am in love with this hotel! The stunning art collection on the walls brightened my day as soon as I walked in, and the continued excellence throughout the hotel make this one of my absolute top choices for a stay in Istanbul. It is only a couple blocks from the heart of the Taksim district, yet it feels like it’s in a peaceful world of its own, on a quiet dead-end street with almost no traffic. The hotel has modern, subtle elegance with service to match. The suite was truly two full rooms, and had a wonderful marble-lined bathroom with a large tub – appreciated due to the lack of any spa facility. The lounge off of the lobby is cozy with an extensive library of just about every book about Turkey and Istanbul imaginable, and they offer a decent DVD library, if you actually have time for a movie with all there is to do in this city.

I absolutely loved this hotel! It is just across the street from the Italian consulate and about a 5-10 minute walk to Istiklal street in Taksim or Tophane. The hotel was once a Franciscan monastery and has been operating as a hotel in recent years. The exterior of the hotel has that late Ottoman home architecture feel and the interior is rather modern. I loved the modern glass art and the impressionist-like paintings of Istanbul! The lobby is spacious and even has a collection of books about Istanbul in several languages. The rooms are spectacular! They are all quite large and have great views! Each room has a seating area, a large bed, and gorgeous wooden floors. The bathrooms too are large and have a jacuzzi! The restaurant is wonderful and overlooks the Bosphorous, Golden Horn, and the magnificent Topkapi Palace!
