The House Hotel Bosphorus in Istanbul, Turkey

November 16, 2011 by

The House Hotel Bosphorus is a milestone building of the late 19th century with wonderful views of the Bosphorus.

Refurbished by the worldwide commended design firm Autoban, the historical building has been changed into a design boutique hotel of 23 rooms. Most of the rooms have full or partial Bosphorus view and private balconies.

With its initial features that have been refurbished, the Hotel combines historical glamour with modern blueprint. All rooms have a king size pillow-top bed, marble bathroom with rainforest shower, custom-made furniture, 42” flat screen LCD Satellite TV with international channels, 3 m ceiling, goose down duvet & pillows, L’Occitane bathroom amenities, air-conditioning, in-room safe, complimentary Wi-Fi internet access, minibar and complimentary espresso/tea facilities.

The views from the lower floors are less unreserved, but hardly less remarkable; most of these rooms have balconies directly facing over the water. The views are far from the only visual motivation to be found, for the interiors, in the cool, neutral-toned Autoban house style, are as fashionable as any in the city. And the centerpiece, in this as in the other House hotels, is the spacious first-floor lounge; while the private spaces are fine enough, these social spaces are a House specialty.

Ortaköy, where the Hotel is situated is an energetic area with restaurants, cafes and a broad variety of stores. A few strokes away from the Hotel is the landmark Ortaköy Mosque which is built on its own platform in the Bosphorus and offers almost 360 degree view.
