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.

Recommend by a friend, we booked the House Hotel for our entire 5 day stay in Turkey. Located in Ortakoy Turkey, the hotel is situated in a very chic area of Turkey. 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

Arrival - We booked private airport transfers through the hotel. It was 98 euros each way for a Mercedes E class transfer. We thought it was a bit... More

Location cannot be better, you are literally having the view of Bosporus or even Istanbul, phenomenal! I highly recommend this boutique hotel, our room was quite nice too. Thanks... More

We decided to spend a few hours in Ortakoy after seeing the cute little town from our Bosphorus cruise. We had wine and mezes at the House Hotel Bosphorus restaurant on the 2nd floor of the hotel (not the House Cafe next door although that looked great as well and has the same menu as the hotel restaurant). The hotel... More

A lovely hotel with a great location. Rooms over looking the Bosphorous and Ortakoy. Rooms are well designed old-modern. You will find all kind of restaurants and bars for all budgets withing walking distance. Great attentive staff. Amazing breakfast with a river view! Will certainly return.

The Ortakoy area where the Hotel is located is a lively area with restaurants, cafes and a wide range of stores.
