Once a derelict alcohol factory, this sophisticated waterfront hotel has remained with the same family since the original building was built in the 19th century. Voted one of the world's best new hotels by an international travel magazine, the decor is contemporary and the design uses wood, marble, steel and brick. Facilities include a waterfront terrace restaurant, Kordon Restaurant, a library (with extensive collection on Turkish art and architecture) and a nearby scheduled complimentary launch service across the Bosphorus. In addition, the hotel has an equipped meeting room, same-day laundry service (extra fee) and a babysitting service upon request (fee payable). The air-conditioned establishment comprises 20 guest rooms and welcomes guests in a lobby with 24-hour reception and check-out service.
