This hotel is a beautiful little place right down on the Bosphorus in the Ortakoy. It is convenient to just about everything. Our room was number 204 and it was a beautiful mini suite with a comfortable sitting room. The bed was large and comfortable and the linens were top notch. The pillows were big and fluffy. The bathroom and shower were typically European but very clean and functional with great water pressure. As our stay in Istanbul was our second week of traveling I needed to use the hotel laundry service. It was quick and well done. Each morning we took breakfast in the lounge area on the first floor. This is a wonderful room that opens out on to the Bosphorus. Breakfast in the early morning sunshine with the sound of the Bosphorus in the background. It was magical. The real gem at this hotel is the staff. The vast majority of them spoke English very well making our stay easier. They are under the command of the General Manager Bahar Karaca. This woman is a fireball. She immediately made us feel right at home and offered many suggestions for places to visit. ALL of her ideas were good ones. She was able to book us into places with short notice and seems to be well connected in Istanbul. We had an absolutely fabulous time at The House and always felt well taken cared of. I will not hesitate to book a room here on my next trip to Istanbul.
