Istanbul is a kind of encyclopedia of history, and it is logical to choose a historical location for the stay in this city. How about an old prison in the heart of the old city? Now is a luxury hotel, however many original fragments are preserved.
A small three-storey, neo-classic prison building is situated in the heart of the historical peninsula and it is within walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Archeology Museum, the Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazaar
The hotel is surrounded by the history the design made in style of the Ottoman Empire: arched transitions, shutters on windows, colored carpets and cozy sofas. The hotel has authentic details, preserved from ancient period carved marble columns, mosaic, massive doors.
The hotel has only 65 rooms which makes it extraordinarily cozy; all rooms have an inner courtyard filled atmosphere with flowers and trees. What a pleasure to sit here on a warm evening, listen singing of birds, enjoying the dinner of Turkish cuisine at the Seasons restaurant and drinking a glass of local wine!
