The following is a wild list of exclusive lodging options in Istanbul.
Let your imagination run from water jets for your delivery to caviar treatments in the spa, from sleeping on hammock all day long by the sea to cocktails on the terrace during sunset...
Day 1 - Istanbul
This is not Los Angeles and it is not Monte Carlo; however, the boutique hotels of Istanbul, as well as, some of the best chain hotels of the world remain exclusive with high quality service, friendly staff and ease of life.
The top of the list, Les Ottomans, is a grandiose hotel with very few rooms (imagine the typical size of suit). Situated on the European side, right by the sea and in close proximity to the best night clubs of the town, this is an exquisite hotel with exquisite place and exquisite service. Imagine landing down on Reina or Sortie with a private water jet for a wild night out, or staying in for the night and enjoying a bottle of wine with your loved ones in the hotel's elegant lounge, looking at the sea view.
Ciragan Hotel, second on our list, is also right by the sea, in the close proximity of Les Ottomans. It is one of the oldest residences of Istanbul, and this reflects in the style of the building and its interior design. Imagine sleeping with the sound of the waves inside a historical legend and dreaming of conquering this beautiful city from this beautiful palace. Ciragan also has a nice pool for its quests to enjoy themselves in the summer.
Formerly an alcohol production factory, Sumahan on the Water is literally on the Water. Serenity, good service and friendly staff trademark this hotel.
The Sofa Hotel, further down the list, is a better option perhaps for the winter as it is situated towards the center of the city. Nevertheless, Sofa Hotel makes it into our list because of the cosmopolitan district it is found in and because of its own cosmopolitan aura which marks the very hip and trendy hotel from its lobby to its gardens.
