This location is definitely bigger and much more touristy that the smaller, charming Galatasaray location. But our room - the Balyan Suite - was spectacular and had a beautiful balcony and the best views of the river, the Bosphorus Bridge, the Ortaköy Mosque, and the pedestrian square. Bathroom was gorgeous but note: there are glass walls so you might not... More

This was our first trip to Istanbul and The House Hotel Bosphorous and it won't be our last. The hotel offers a wonderful and convenient location right on Ortakoy quay, surrounded by wonderful restaurants and cafes. A magic part of Istanbul. Our room was chic and cosy and no attention to detail was spared. The General Manager and her team... More

We stayed here for one night en route back to the US from Izmir. It was worth the trip from the airport for a special stay. The hotel has an unparalleled setting in Ortikoy adjacent to the Mosque and the first bridge over the Bosporus. Their breakfast/all day lounge has a great setting with tables overlooking the water. We had... More

Fabulous hotel - first class. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfast was amazing set on a terrace overlooking the Bosphorus, and the service was some of the best of any hotel we have been to. We had a minor issue with a boat transfer (not their fault) and the reception team could not have handled it any better - they... More

THE HOUSE at Bosphorus really offers everything from Meeting opportunities to private stays and even a wedding would fit. I definately recommend rooms directing to the moschee or the bosphorus for its magnificant views. Suites in the top store are all very nice.

The House Hotel has so many virtues from its beautiful architecture to its location on the river, to its outstanding staff. If you like to experience a city by being "in" the culture its location in Ortakoy is bustling with locals day and night. Upon our arrival we were upgraded to a suite which was a wonderful surprise. The location... More

The House Hotel Bosphorus is at the top of our list of outstanding hotel experiences. The setting is magical, right on the Bosphorus in a charming lively neighbourhood close enough to the sites but away from major tourist areas. It was such a treat to come home after busy days. This hotel has wonderful elegant character and we highly recommend... More

My room was very small with no view of the Bosphorus. At first I was disappointed as I was expecting something bigger for the money I was paying. But I quickly realized that since I was going to be spending the whole day out exploring the magic of Istanbul, the room size was not not an issue at all. Bathroom... More

The staff are exceptionally helpful. We found the hotel charming and far more interesting than staying in one of major chain hotels. We had the Penthouse Suite which is accurately described as having views over Ortekoy Mosque a partial view of the Bosphorus which we found spectacular. There is a decent sitting area with a sofa and two arm chairs... More
