“Chic venue in Istanbul's art and fashion district with sprawling rooms and suites, a contemporary gallery, and impeccable personal service”
Sleek lines and simple geometric shapes; blond hardwood floors, marble bathroom counters and brushed chrome fixtures; a woven blanket in soothing sand and chocolate tones; a splash of colour with a pomegranate cushion. These rooms invite you to settle in.
The 45 standard Deluxe Rooms are plenty luxurious, with a kingsize bed, a sofa or easy chairs, a TV, a CD/DVD player, air conditioning, a minibar with large bottles of premium liquors, an internet connection cable, 2 phones and a laptop-sized safe. The elegant ensuite bathrooms have a wet room with a rain shower and L'Occitane toiletries. Small details - an umbrella and a bedside clock showing the date and temperature - are unexpected pleasures. If you crave quiet, book a Tranquility Room facing an interior Japanese garden.
Designed for lengthy stays and special occasions, the suites come in 4 flavours: Terrace, Senior, Executive and Honeymoon. The Terrace Suites have a city-view terrace lined with shrubs and some have kitchenettes. The Senior Suites have a kitchenette, a living room, a bedroom and a dressing room.
The suites-only HIP floor is home to the Executive and Honeymoon Suites. The Executive Suite has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one with a Jacuzzi tub) and a terrace. The Honeymoon Suite has a round bed, an indoor/outdoor Jacuzzi and an outdoor hammam (traditional Turkish steam bath).
Suites on other floors can connect with a standard room and some rooms can be configured with 2 single beds instead of a king; enquire when booking.
All guests are treated to notepaper inscribed with their name, a courtesy “Is everything OK?” call a day after check-in and twice-daily housekeeping. The bedside 'Anything, Anytime' button covers everything else.
Café Sofa, on the first floor adjacent to reception, lays on an extravagant breakfast buffet from 7 to 10.30am on weekdays, and until 11am on weekends. Choose from Turkish standards (tomatoes, cucumbers, marinated olives, cheeses, fresh and dried fruits, yoghurts, breads, jams and honey), go light with carrot, spinach or pear juice with thin-sliced meats and Melba toast, or indulge with champagne and scrambled eggs, Eggs Florentine or Eggs Benedict. All can be served in your room on request.
Café Sofa also serves lunch and dinner, as well as specialty coffees and cocktails which you can enjoy as you browse through the books in the adjoining Patika bookshop. The international menu ranges from comfort food (Grandma’s chicken and broccoli soup) to international favourites (spaghetti bolognese). Make sure you save room for a complimentary slice of cheesecake afterwards.
Ensuite kitchenettes have a fridge, a microwave, a toaster and a kettle should you wish to rustle up snacks in your room (grocery shops abound in the area). Or, of course, there’s room service: soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts are available around the clock, along with a long list of local and international wines and champagnes, beers, cocktails and spirits.
After dark Nisantasi is a centre for nightlife, with an unending choice of upscale restaurants, brasseries and bars should you wish to eat out.
The hotel welcomes children. Babysitting services can be arranged and cots and extra beds are available. The kitchenettes are convenient for families and the key-card elevators add security, but in truth this is not the ideal environment for children.
Children stay free up to the age of 6. Those aged 6 to 12 are charged at reduced rates.
