We loved staying at Sumahan on the Water after being in the Galata area for a week. The setting is beautiful and the hotel is so luxurious. The staff went out of their way to assist us wherever they could and the owners were very hands-on.

You’re made to feel like a rock star because the service is so good here. Halil, is the epitome of service and will greet you on arrival and from there nothing is too much of a problem. We booked the loft apartment and it was perfect. Views of European Istanbul, private chairs and a table outside to enjoy sundowners served by Tamer (possibly the best host I’ve come across in all my travels). Watching the sun slump below majestic old town Istanbul What more could one want? The people who run and own this establishment are at the top of their game.

The hotel is located in a residential area of Istanbul that allows you to relax and enjoy watching the world go by along the Bosporus. The room was great and the hotel staff really made us feel welcome. When we needed assistance in our transportation the staff made sure we were able to make it to our destination, even going so far as to text us station names, maps and locations. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast every morning and could look forward to a quiet relaxing time when we arrived back at our hotel after hours of sightseeing. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to come and enjoy Istanbul from a relaxing viewpoint. Thanks to everyone at Sumahan for a great vacation.

The Sumahan is a wonderful spot right at the Bosporus. Quiet and absolutely clean. Wonderful rooms and super friendly staff. I can recommend this space 100% and I will definitely come back again. Also the neighborhood is nice to walk around. Perfect stay and relaxing after a long working day.

I don't know where to being with. This is a charming little hotel located right in one the best spots on Bosporus. From your room you are literally 10 meters away from the Bosporus and especially from the rooms on first floor, you enjoy an amazing view of the water-way and the city. But it's not just the beauty of the location, what makes it special, also it's convenience. Apart from the possibility to use Water Taxi provided by the municipality to reach European side (5 minutes to Ortakoy, Bebek, Arnavutkoy), it's also easily accessible via using the Bosporus bridge. Being 5 minutes away from the bridge, makes it very easy to reach anywhere in Istanbul, especially on the European Side. The rooms are spacious, well equipped but also beautifully decorated. But it's actually the service which makes the difference. The team in the hotel from the valet to the service team are very professional, friendly and competent. We haven't tried the breakfast, but the dinner was delicious and there are not so many better spots on Bosporus to dine at sea side.

50 room hotel on the Bosphorus - Hotel is modern, well managed, perfectly held - Personnel is friendly and discreet - Views are unbeatable overlooking the Bosphorus ("pied dans l'eau" as the French say) when sitting on a green terrace - Rooms are comfortable - enjoying a great breakfast on the terrace overlooking the water is a pleasure - highly recommended - R.

This, my first time to Istanbul, did well for itself, mainly in part to the lovely facilities and staff at Sumahan on the Water. The suite was immaculate, expansive, and the perfect place to relax in between outings. It is not especially near the Old City or the European parts in Pera, but there are ferries, water taxis, and regular taxis which are cheap and reasonable. It's a good trade-off for privacy, quiet, the view.

We stayed in two family loft suites for 2 days recently. The rooms were excellent and the views were amazing. Use of the garden is a huge plus, it’s almost like we had our own home on the Bosphorus. The staff was very caring, friendly and attentive. Everyone that we dealt with was very nice and helpful. The breakfast was good and plentiful. We ate at the restaurant for dinner 1 evening and it was very good. While a bit on the expensive side, it’s definitely worth a stay! You are valued as a guest, and treated like part of the family!
