Best for Value for money - Expert review of Hotel Ibrahim Pasha

Sleek modernity meets Ottoman-era luxury in this relaxed boutique hotel.

A lot of hotels in Istanbul claim to blend old and new, but I think few do it as seamlessly and stylishly as the Hotel Ibrahim Pasha, a sleek re-imagining of two late-19th-century Ottoman homes with particularly inviting public areas to go along with appealingly decorated rooms.

Location: 

On a quiet street near the end of the Hippodrome, the Ibrahim Pasha is close to all of Sultanhamet’s sights, but pleasantly set apart from the main areas where tourists congregate.

Bedrooms: 

Like the rest of the hotel, bedrooms gracefully inhabit the space between austere minimalism and too-fussy Orientalist overload, with gleaming wood floors, richly coloured bedspreads and pillows, and a few well-chosen carpets and pieces of art. I like how the standard rooms are just as well-appointed as the deluxe ones, though they can be quite small, lacking the sitting areas and bathtubs featured in the higher-end rooms. All rooms have free wireless Internet and a small library of DVDs to watch on the flat-screen TVs.

Public areas: 

From the cosy ground-floor library, with its leather couches and fireplace, to the rooftop terrace, with its beautifully tiled floor and stainless-steel framed bar, I found the public areas in the hotel to be among its biggest selling points. Even the breakfast room is so thoughtfully put together, you’ll feel like you’re in a real café.

Eating and drinking: 

An excellent breakfast buffet of fresh Continental and Turkish selections is included in all room rates.

Service: 

The friendly, well-informed staff offer excellent advice to visitors on restaurants and sightseeing tours.
