Boutique hotels are very popular with conference and meeting organisers and are also a first choice for smaller incentive groups. In spite of the widely held view that the large convention hotels of international hotel chains dominate in Istanbul, the boutique scene is very lively. In the city you can find quite a few luxury boutique hotels that are situated in exceptional locations and combine comfort and intimacy. We visited four attractive hotels in the lively and varied metropolis, any of which you can use for your next special event.

Back story

What Istanbul can truly be most proud of is its well-preserved old city centre, which they have not molested or altered in any way right up to the present day. In the heart of the city you can therefore still see the remains of the Hippodrome, next to which you can find the Hotel Eresin. Most of the main historical monuments, museums and tourist attractions in the Sultanahmet area can be found around this unique museum hotel. Perhaps the fact that since 1985 the historical part of the city has been under UNESCO patronage as part of its world cultural heritage has helped the preservation of the old town.

View from the inside

The special atmosphere in the interior evokes the beautiful pieces of the rich collection of ancient antiquities – the hotel could be described as a museum, as the pieces constantly whisper stories from the past. The tastefully furnished rooms are distinguished by the intimate atmosphere and careful selection of materials. The restaurant with a well-stocked wine cellar is an ideal environment for the enjoyment of good food and drink and the ambiance is complemented by wall paintings dating back to the Byzantine Empire. With its location and intimate atmosphere the legendary hotel hosted many famous people over the years.

Meet with a view

The jewel of the hotel is the hotel terrace overlooking the Sea of Marmara and Mosaic Terrace Restaurant. It has two congress halls with a capacity for a maximum of 150 participants. Meetings in this history-drenched hotel promise a special experience and are complemented by the outstanding staff used to demanding congress guests. The hotel is also an excellent choice for small incentive groups who are looking for experiences in the ancient Sultanhamet, as virtually every building in the district has been converted into a hotel, a restaurant, a bar, a Turkish bath and store, or an attraction of its own.
