Just returned home from four nights at Sumahan on the Water. Agree with most of the reviews on Trip Advisor; the hotel is beautiful, luxurious, the staff are friendly and helpful etc. We had a loft room which was great and very spacious. Loved sitting outside our room, just by the river.
We spent most of our time visiting the tourist sights which meant taking the hotel ferry most mornings at 9:00am, which was a lovely way to start the day. We then took trams or buses to the sights, before returning to the hotel around 6:00pm by public ferry and bus. The Istanbul Pass is great. We got ours from reception and topped it up twice at the machines which are everywhere. We did need some help to top up the first time but a friendly local helped us when we were looking confused!
We sometimes took the hotel ferry again to go out in the evening, sometimes the public ferry. Note the timetable to Cengelkoy (only three minutes walk from the hotel) only runs during ’rush hour’. We used this one morning when we wanted to get into town early. Yes, the ferries finish before midnight, but we never had a problem getting a taxi, which are cheap by UK standards.
