Located in Ortaköy—one of Istanbul’s coolest and most cosmopolitan districts—and housed in a historical city mansion, The Stay Bosphorus charms with chic interiors, custom-made furniture and plenty of retro glamour.
This award-winning city retreat is designed in a well-thought-out combination of old and new.
The hotel has a great waterfront location with views across the Bosphorus: we even saw dolphins from our balcony!
One of our favourite things was a leisurely breakfast served in the Lounge. Absolutely loved the pancakes with banana, strawberries and maple syrup!
There may be other hotels enjoying the waterfront location near Ortaköy Mosque—with great views and all—but none as stylish as The Stay Bosphorus.
The lively Ortaköy area where the hotel is located is one of Istanbul’s coolest neighbourhoods.
