The House Hotel
This five-storey, 19th-century Ottoman mansion is perched at the foot of the Bosphorus Bridge, making its riverside setting the heart of this hotel’s charm. The ground-floor House Café Ortaköy, located right on the shore of the Bosphorus, is perfect for breakfast meetings – the terrace faces the Ortaköy Mosque, so you can enjoy your coffee while taking in a historic Istanbul scene.
Insider tip: Use the hotel’s private boat, The House Boat, for fast airport transfers. From TRY448; thehousehotel.com
