Fodor's Review

What was once a derelict distillery on the Asian waterfront of the Bosphorus is now one of Istanbul's most chic and original places to stay, with comfortable rooms and suites—all with incredible views of the water and decorated in a contemporary style with a few Turkish touches. Some rooms have fireplaces, while ground-level loft suites open onto a communal grassy yard; there's also an attractive hammam and small fitness area. Breakfast is served on the waterfront patio in warm months, and the on-site Tapasuma Restaurant is becoming a destination in itself. The hotel has a private launch that makes regular runs across the Bosphorus (complimentary, but reservations needed) to Kabataş and Kuruçeşme.
