To the south, ships ply the blue waters of the Sea of Marmara, ahead and east the Egyptian obelisk in the Hippodrome rears its granite head backed by the cascade of domes that is the monumental Blue Mosque. Beyond the mosque's leaded domes are the gardens of the Topkapi Palace and, a touch beyond, the blue ribbon of the Bosphorus backed by the hills of Asia. It's stunning, especially when the historic buildings are lit up at night.

The hotel was renovated in 2013 and you can expect plenty of tasteful contemporary neutral décor, walnut wood finishes and elegant light fixtures. Bathrooms are all marble, tile, chrome and glass.
