“Live like an Ottoman pasha in this stylish townhouse in the heart of the old town. There's an elegant homely feel with large, high-ceilinged rooms featuring prettily draped four poster beds. With a popular restaurant and friendly staff, this is a lovely place to explore the city from.”

Hotel Review

This lovingly restored Ottoman-era townhouse has seven rooms and suites, all with polished wood floors, painted ceilings, and pretty textiles in deep and vivid colours. Breakfast is served in a shaded, flower-filled courtyard where à la carte dinners can also be ordered – a welcome alternative to the many restaurants in the Old Town, some of which are great but too many of which are sadly mundane. Overall, this is a lovely retreat in a fascinating place.

Marco Polo Mansion

Arguably the most atmospheric of the Old Town’s hotels. Bohemian flair, laughter and warmth run through this former Ottoman official’s residence, creating an atmosphere more akin to a favourite uncle’s house than a boutique b&b.
