The absolute eternity of past times becomes meaningful until the extent that remaining experiences to the future. The memory of cities is among the pieces that create immortality. The buildings that have witnessed the past and establish the history itself appear in the places where everything about the human that passed-by reminds its existence, passes its torch to the future. Designed by Architect Kemalettin Bey, Director of the Department of Construction and Restoration of the Ministry of Ottoman Foundations, 4th. Vakıf Han is one of the most important parts of the same rooted history as it stood as Legacy Ottoman Hotel. Legacy Ottoman Hotel, which continues its existence in splendour from its history, is among one of the last architectural works of the Ottoman Empire. The building was designed to meet the needs of office buildings in the region in 1911 and was used as a barracks by the French Allied Forces under the name of "Caserne Viktor" between 1920 - 1923. Legacy Ottoman Hotel continues its deep meaning that coming from its history with its grandeur in the present-day world, which is adjacent to the most important historical monuments of the city, is the only five-star hotel in the region. One of the most important features of this magnificent structure is that the domes rising on both sides have the same design with the dome of Masjid al-Aqsa. Kemalattin Bey, who was called to Jerusalem in 1919 to carry out the repairs of the Masjid al-Aqsa Mosque, is thought to present the similarity during these departures. In the face of the fantastic Bosphorus, in one side Hagia Sophia which is the world's one of the wonders to be seen, Bayezit Tower, New Mosque and the eastern station of the Orient Express, Sirkeci Station; in another side, Galata Tower overlooking the city and seagull shouts accompanying the ferry whistles... These are some of the features that are waiting for the Legacy Ottoman Hotel guests. You can feel like a hero of Agatha Christie, who has experienced all these things and became the subject of her novel as you witness thousands of years of history in the midst of historical Istanbul's time-consuming magic atmosphere. Legacy Ottoman Hotel, embracing every detail beautifies the life in the centre of the city, will be delighted to accompany you with the wonderful hospitality that will remain through your journey between the past and the future.

The location is perfect for those wanting to explore the European part of the city, very close to Blue Mosque, Saint Sofia, Spice Bazaar. Wonderful big rooms, staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Lutfi from the Concierge was a great help right from the beginning, he helped us find the street on which we could access the hotel (if you arrive by car, make sure you check with the hotel since some of the streets are not accessible by car during the day). Big thanks to reception staff and Lutfi, they were just amazing!
