Best for Romance - Expert review of Sumahan on the Water

Beautiful boutique hotel with stunning Bosphorus-side location.

This renovated Ottoman-era distillery along the waterfront is the spot I’d pick for a private getaway. The Sumahan is small and intimate, with superior service, spectacular views, and contemporary style.

Location: 

Set in a beautiful spot some distance from the city, the Sumahan’s location provides peace and quiet rather than convenience. That said, it’s not completely isolated – I find the surrounding Çengelköy area’s traditional wooden houses, fish restaurants, and seaside paths charming and well worth a wander. The hotel has a water-taxi service to central locations.

Bedrooms: 

I love the exposed-brick walls, fireplaces, and Turkish-style baths in some of the sleek, contemporary rooms, all of which enjoy Bosphorus views from their tall, arched windows. The dual-level suites have their own gardens along the shore.

Public areas: 

The beautiful waterfront garden and cosy library are relaxing places to while away some time.

Eating and drinking: 

The waterfront Kordon restaurant turns out well-prepared seafood and Mediterranean dishes to diners enjoying the view. Guests won’t go hungry during the day either, with complimentary breakfast, fruit plates, snacks, and Afternoon Tea.

Leisure facilities: 

A beautifully tiled spa area has its own marble Turkish bath and massage rooms, as well as an adjoining fitness centre.

Service: 

Service is pampering and attentive, anticipating guests’ needs while remaining unobtrusive.
