The 10 best hotels in Istanbul

Discover the top hotels in Istanbul handpicked by local expert Jenna Scatena.

If you're planning a trip to Istanbul, you're in for a treat. This stunning metropolis sits at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, with a rich history and culture that makes it a top tourist destination. Istanbul has a diverse range of accommodations to suit every type of traveler. If you're looking to immerse yourself in the city's history, consider staying in a historic hotel that has been meticulously restored with stunning Ottoman architecture and original art and furnishings. For those who want a more modern experience, Istanbul also has plenty of contemporary hotels with sleek, stylish rooms and techy amenities for the modern business traveler. Here are some of the best hotels in Istanbul to offer the perfect base for exploring the city’s incredible history, culture, and beauty.

1.

Pera Palace Hotel

Address:

Mesrutiyet Cad. No. 52

Price:

$79-1522/night

If you’re a history buff or simply looking to add a touch of luxury to your stay in Istanbul, the Pera Palace is the perfect choice. This iconic hotel’s storied past is what first drew me to it, having been the preferred lodging for some of the most famous guests to visit the city, including Ernest Hemingway and Agatha Christie.
If you appreciate a good dose of historical significance in your accommodations, the Pera Palace Istanbul is not to be missed. Its opulent Art Nouveau-style architecture and elegant interior design transport you back to the glamorous days of the early 20th century.
And with a mix of French, Italian, and Turkish cuisine offered at the Orient Terrace, you’ll get a taste of the city’s history and culture without even having to step outside.

2.

Ciragan Palace Kempinski

Address:

Ciragan Caddesi 32

Price:

$551-2543/night

The Ciragan Palace Kempinski is one of the best luxury hotels in Istanbul. Housed inside an opulent palace originally built in the 17th century, this is much more than a hotel. Its prime spot on the European shores of the Bosphorus is my favorite place to take out-of-town guests for unrivaled views of the shimmering water and the palace grounds.
Take a stroll along the water’s edge or dip into the heated infinity pool, with towering palm trees decorating the outdoor space. The poolside bar and restaurant offer crafted cocktails and delectable bites. You can also savor the flavors of the Ottomans at the Gazebo Lounge restaurant.
With over 300 rooms and suites, you can select a more modern experience with comfortable hotel rooms or opt for the full regal treatment with the palace suites, featuring Bosphorus views.

3.

Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet

Address:

Tevkifhane Sokak No. 1

Price:

$767-3074/night

Set inside a century-old Turkish prison – yes, prison! – this luxury hotel has come a long way from being home to the city’s criminals. Built in 1918 in Turkish Neoclassical architecture, the hotel has retained its emphasis on pointed arches, ornate tiles, and several domes and towers to showcase some of the grandeur of Sultanahmet, making it one of the most unique hotels in Istanbul and a favorite place to stroll in admiration.
Within just a short walk from the Hagia Sophia mosque, Topkapi Palace, and the Blue Mosque, it’s one of the best places to stay in Istanbul close to the main attractions. With just 65 rooms, enjoy the more intimate experience of staying at a boutique hotel with attentive staff across the spa and dining.
Avlu Restaurant is set in a traditional courtyard surrounded by a beautiful garden and serves up fresh takes on modern Anatolian cuisine.

4.

Georges Hotel Galata

Address:

Serdar-I Ekrem Sokak No:24

Price:

$110-708/night

Head up to the rooftop terrace restaurant, 24, and you’ll soon extend your stay. This glamorous bar is perched above the city, offering an impressive panorama of the Bosphorus, the Galata Tower, and the Sultanahmet skyline.
It’s one of my favorite boutique hotels in Istanbul to enjoy a morning coffee or evening cocktail and soak up the magic of the city – of course, there’s more to the hotel than the terrace. Created and designed by Alex Varlik and Eric Kamhi in 2011, the luxury boutique hotel is housed in a restored historic building first constructed in 1882.
Retaining its exposed brick walls, with floor to ceiling windows and black marble bathrooms, the rooms strike a balance between old and new design. Perfect for a romantic weekend, most of the rooms have a private balcony with city or sea views.

5.

Novotel Istanbul Karakoy

Address:

Kemankes Caddesi No: 57-59

Price:

$63-626/night
