Istanbul Suites is located in the Cihangir neighbourhood which is very close to the historical Istanbul texture. Through the windows, you can view all of the historic quarter, including Topkapi Palace, Galata Tower and the big mosques in Sultanahmet. Keeping a modernist approach, the sandstone facade of the building was inspired by the strong appearance of the Tophane-i Amire Building at the end of the street. The long windows and French balconies of Istanbul Suites reflect the architectural style of the Italian Hospital just opposite the hotel.
Inside the lobby and rooms, visitors may join together, allowing the local Cihangir daily life to carry on. Each room was designed as one space where you can eat, rest and sleep. Patterns made from laser cut wood or iron create layers, and combine with existing Autoban furniture. Some of the furniture has been adapted to the hotel concept. The bathroom walls are made of traditional Marmara marble which is the main material in the Ottoman architectural style. The whole ambiance provides a unique experience where the visitors can broaden their horizons and breathe Istanbul.
