What a rehabilitation success story: a former prison just steps from Topkapı Palace and Aya Sofya is now one of Istanbul's premier accommodations, where rooms and suites are luxuriously outfitted and overlook the Sea of Marmara, the Old City, or a manicured interior courtyard. The rooftop terrace, A'ya Lounge, offers spectacular views of the Aya Sofya and other monuments and is the perfect place to have a drink and watch the sun set; the glass-enclosed Seasons Restaurant in the central courtyard is one of the area's few fine dining venues.
