We stayed here for three nights in January 2016 on our second visit to Istanbul. This is a remarkable hotel, with views over the Bosporus, excellent service, and great amenities that is an excellent choice for someone seeking an alternative to staying in the middle of the city. The hotel is a short walk from a nice neighborhood with shops...

This hotel offers a different atmosphere than the rest of Istanbul. It is beatifully designed and has a strong a character. But away from the hectic dynamisim of Istanbul. Customers are mostly wealthy Turks or old white Anglos. View is stunning, rooms are as what you pay. But if you are coming to Istanbul first time and if you are...

Sumahan on the Water is one of those hotels that feels like a oasis of calm - you can't relaxing once the staff escort you through the door and into a surprisingly comfortable reception area with a wonderful view of the Bosphorus. We arrived just as a snowstorm was blasting the city but the dramatic change in the weather only...

Staying in Uskudar

Neighbourhood Profile
Uskudar
Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.
