“A gaggle of adjoining Ottoman houses and a 15th-century hammam have been corralled together to create an attractive place to stay in the very centre of Sultanahmet. The roof terrace, with its panoramic views of the old city, is a big selling point. The rooms are attractively furnished with antiques and Turkish rugs and wallhangings, and there’s an ‘archaeological garden’ were you can meditate on the past surrounded by fragments of ancient statuary.”

"Lots of natural wood and stone are enlivened by carefully-chosen oriental rugs and textiles. The peaceful garden is graced by palms and a cypress tree."

"Rooms come in all shapes and sizes – the finest garden suites have their own tiny hamams although rooms in the main building are tiddlier. At the heart of the hotel are two secluded courtyard gardens, one of them backing onto the ruins of a 15th-century Turkish bath."
