I have been staying on the European side for years, but since my office is on the Asian side I tried Sumahan. It saved me considerable travelling time between hotel and office. Also, it is close to the second bridge so getting to the European side was relatively easy. However, this is Istanbul and one needs to allow an hour to get anywhere, no matter where you stay!
The hotel is a gem, with great views of the Bosphorus and the ships going by. Staff were great. The shower was in the bath, which is a pet hate, but the loft rooms have seperate showers. Also, the bottom floor rooms have access to the lawn which looked quite nice.
Restaurant Sumahan offers modern food with a Turkish spin and the wine list has so e French wines, although mostly local wines. We had a great evening under the stars enjoying the busy waterway.
