Splendid hotel with excellent rooms with views of the Bosphorous. The staff did all they could to make our stay comfortable. We took the hotel's ferry to Kabatas walked up to Taksim Square then down Iskalili to the Galata Tower and bridge. From there a taxi, TL20, to Kuruceme for the return ferry to the hotel. Would recommend at Kurecesme... More

This is a boutique hotel, right at the Bosporus with very good service from all the staff, good breakfast and really stunning views from the room but also at the terrace that is literally on the water (when some boats cross Bosporus too fast you can get the waves washing the terrace...). Solid 5 stars for me, just careful with... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as a party of 8 with ages from 8 to about 70. Sumahan is a very well run boutique hotel with excellent levels of service. Rooms are very well appointed. Nothing was too much of a problem for them as we changed our plans frequently. The Hamam in the basement is particularly good Highly recommended... More

We arrived to a free upgrade to a loft suite, and when they opened our doors, the views were just spectacular: right out into a garden overlooking the Bosphorus. We had dinner at their restaurant, tapasuma, which was delicious (and well priced). The fireplace in the room made for a cozy evening. The breakfast was delicious, and the ferry trip... More

Rooms are nicely designed and decorated, silent, comfortable, truly romantic and elegant. Even bathroom has the fascinating Bosporus view. Reception was kind and helpful. Do not have high expectations for breakfast :)

Sumahan on the Water is a charming boutique hotel on the Asian side of Istanbul. Aside from the friendly staff and the great food, the view was unparalleled. I woke up to a view of the Galata Bridge and the glistening waters of the Bosphorus, along with sailboats lazily crossing the river. Breakfast by the water was nice and relaxing.... More

For a few days this is the perfect, 'peaceful' hotel from which to explore busy Istanbul. The conversion of the old industrial building to a stylish hotel has been done beautifully and it is easy to feel comfortable and relaxed. The room we stayed in had a fire place and the staff were happy to come and light a welcoming... More

We stopped by here for cocktails. The location on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is fabulous, with a great view down to the Golden Horn. I love this part of Istanbul and the hotel is a great place to unwind, especially as the sun sets. Service was excellent and unfailingly courteous. Definitely recommended.
