Stay at the FS Bosphorus
What better way to absorb the ancient city between East and West, than with an immersive stay in an Ottoman palace? The 19th-century property makes for a stunning base. Wake to sparkling views of the Bosphorus, a backdrop that follows as you roam the complex. Sophisticated Ottoman styling has also prevailed, offering an alluring window into old-world luxury. Let the sounds of the metropolis tempt you out for a wander. Or indulge in a signature treatment at the Turkish hammam. Delightful gözleme dishes and more await the evening’s dining, which can be taken poolside or on the terrace under seductively dimming skies.
As far as city hotels go, this is quite a large property with an amazing waterfront position. You will be based near the Dolmabahçe Palace, home to the last Ottoman sultans, with other famed sites, museums and palaces also closeby.
The hotel’s 170 guest rooms and suites are spread across three beautifully adorned buildings, including the Palace building which boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and unbeatable Bosphorus views. Stays are elegant, with opulent Ottoman touches and decor.
