The moment we opened our window, and looked out over the Bosphorus, we knew we'd picked the right place to begin our Istanbul visit. With the Ortaköy Mosque to the left, and the boats going by, it's a beautiful sight. The room was relatively small, but quite stylish. We immediately wished we were staying longer. At breakfast, the buffet was... More

I stayed 17th and 18th February in this nice Hotel. As Istanbul was under heavy snow the view from my room was terrific. The room was nice and functional, not really designed for Business travellers, but I liked to stay there, as it is a nice experience. Breakfast room and the reception is cosy and the personell extremely efficient, friendly... More

We stayed at the The House Hotel Bosphorus for 10 days I can state that we have had one of our best vacations ever. Travelling quite often, I have stayed at many luxurious hotels, and often enough experiencing lack of customer and service orientation. Not here, just the opposite, from the concierge (one of the best ever!!) to the food... More

I don't normally review hotels but I must with this one. It was spectacular from the moment we arrived at the reception we were treated like royalty. Everyone knew our names and we were quickly checked in and ushered to the room. The room was very comfortable and luxurious. For the entire stay we felt the same way. Fabulous hotel.... More

A very nice hotel. The view is wonderful, straight at the bosphorus, revealing the charm of the strait. So eat your breakfast and drink your coffee at the balcony and just take a look... so splendid.

I stayed last weekend with my wonderful partner Shane who organised the trip and found the hotel, it was a fantastic stay, the room was beautiful and the ceiling was just breathtaking, the staff could not have been more helpful or nice.

We spend a revival weekend in Istanbul after having been living 2 year in the city. We selected the house hotel for the extraordinary location on the harbour of Ortakoy, we one of the best view on the Bosphorus, and for the size of the Hotel, much more small & luxury than big Famous hotel brands. We appreciate also the... More

The hotel location is fabulous and the view from the breakfast room is great. Ortakoy itself is a delight. Great little fish restaurants in the neighborhood. A bit far from Beyouglu and the old city, but it is great to explore other parts of the city. We were staying at the Bosphorus and celebrated the new year there. The hotel... More

Located at Ortokoy on the Bosphorus which is an amazing area. Front Desk Staff are friendly, polite, professional and very helpful. I booked the deluxe suite and was upgraded to Simon Kalfa Suite that has the best view facing the bosphorus bridge. In overall, I would say it's an exceptional hotel if not for the breakfast buffet. The breakfast buffet... More
