Originally built by the same dynasty of architects that created some of Istanbul’s finest Ottoman landmarks, this waterfront mansion is an artful fusion of the 19th-century lofty ceilings, ornate plasterwork and parquet floors with contemporary luxurious interiors—designed by the acclaimed Turkish design studio Autoban.
Divided into six categories (ranging from Superior to the Penthouse), the rooms and suites have balconies and river views, and their décor sets period furnishings against daring flashes of modern luxury.
Polished parquet floors, gleaming white walls, kingsize beds draped in crisp white linen work in great harmony with funky light fixtures and hi-tech gadgets.
With 26 guest rooms and unbeatable views over the Bosphorus, this is the third venture from dynamic Stay mini-chain.
The chain manages an establishment on the ground floor of the Stay, right on the shore of the river—the trendy House Café Ortaköy, which serves international café fare, Turkish specialties and delicious wines and cocktails. In the summer weekends, live DJ sets get the evening going.
Another spot for the hotel guests to relax at is the all-day-dining Lounge Bar, overlooking the Bosphorus.
