Expert reviews

New York Times review:

“Away from the overcrowded tourist zones near Taksim Square and Istiklal Caddesi, this hotel is a solid choice (but by no means a bargain) for those seeking a quiet but central location and abundant amenities.”

Frommers review:

“The exclusive House hotel and restaurant chain have pulled off another coup in the acquisition and renovation of this superb stone edifice, built in 1863 as the headquarters of the Credit General Ottoman Bank. As much as possible of the former bank’s grandiose interior has been left intact.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Istanbul.

Telegraph review:

“A family-friendly Istanbul hotel with period charm, an atmospheric restaurant, a hammam and Golden Horn views. The latest in a string of impeccably stylish hotels from the House group, built in a former bank in the now-hip, waterfront Karaköy district.”
