We stayed for six nights in July and loved every minute of it! The combination of fabulous decor (by Turkish Interior Design company Autoban), wonderful staff (very attentive but not too formal), heavenly views (choose a room overlooking the Bosphorus), an extremely comfortable mattress and bedding (so important!) and a totally rocking little neighborhood below us (Ortakoy) ticked all the boxes! Yes, the back of the hotel may be a little noisy, but the front is not, especially on the higher floors. We booked the Penthouse Suite and didn't hear a thing! The view from the Penthouse balcony over the Bosphorus is fabulous and it's situated right next to the bridge linking Europe and Asia and the Ortakoy Mosque. The food in the restaurant is very good but there is an abundance of local and international choice just outside the front door. We especially recommend renting the House Hotel private boat to view Istanbul from the Bosphorus which gives you an entirely different perspective on this amazing city.
The House Hotel is a little gem of a place and we give it a ten out of ten. Please do visit, it's an experience not to be missed.
