Rooms are top standard and breakfast plentiful. Ortaköy is... More

If you value friendly helpful staff, great service, fantastic views, comfortable and beautifully designed rooms, there is no need to look any further than The House Hotel. It is ideally located in one of Istanbul's most fashionable and trendy spots. I would choose this hotel every time.

The streets are lined with restaurants, shops, and clubs with numerous floors for endless views of the Bosphorus. Before we arrived the hotel helped up with a VIP... More
