We stayed at the Sumahan for 2 nights in Aug 08. It is a very beautiful hotel, with stunning views of the Bosphorus and the private boat service that ferrys the hotel's guest from the hotel and downtown is indeed a very stylish touch - however it is just too far away!
The boat service is very good and efficient when it runs (30 mins between hotel and downtown). However the last service ends before dinner time - and if one misses the hotel boat its either an expensive taxi trip back (most likely with traffic jams along the way) or it will involve a ferry ride + taxi connection.
Anyhow - overall a very enjoyable experience particularly if you are looking for a designer hotel!
