Good but not perfect!
This is a very nice hotel for a couple looking to escape the crowd and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Bosphorus. The only two things I didn't like was the mattress and a bit of noisiness from the other rooms due to poor building construction/isolation. For the mattress, they said it's a Queen one and the description online says so too but it was really just two twin mattresses put together on the same frame so if you happen to sleep in the middle of it, especially if your a couple, you'll wake up with a very upset back!

On the Bosphorus
The Sumahan is simply superb in every respect with the location and service being the top of the list. Watching the boats pass while sitting a few steps from the Bosphorus with the first bridge illuminated later at night is a memory for life.

A week in paradise!
We are originally from Istanbul, but we haven't been to Turkey for more than 10 years. We chose Sumahan because of its unique location on the Bosphorus and proximity to parents. You simply cannot find a better location for a hotel on Bosphorus on Asian side. There is complimentary boat shuttle to two locations on the European side. Food at two restaurants are fabulous and after 8 days of complimentary breakfast I gained 10 lbs!! Cleanliness is very important to me and I always complain or request extra towels etc to cover surfaces; but this hotel was unbelievably clean. My favourite hotel is Halekulani in Honolulu and I can easily rate Sumahan as my second favourite. Entire staff is fantastic;so friendly, professional, kind. They get out of their way to help you. I recommend it to anyone going to Istanbul. It is a wonderful boutique hotel where you feel at home while you have all the amenities of a large hotel. We will definitely go back!

Good3.0 / 5
Rooms from the hotel have a great view of the Bosphorous. We stayed in a Loft Suite which offered a good level of comfort but the cleanliness good definitely be improved. The Breakfast buffet is disappointing with a very limited choice. The main issue that we had though was the level of service which was well below what you would expect for the price. The view is the best thing about this hotel

Away from the noisy crowd
This is a very nice place to stay in on the Asian side away from the milling crowds on the other side. If you want to go across the hotel provides a free boat shuttle service. A nice touch. Breakfast outside right on the edge of the water is one of the highlights provided the weather co-operates. A short walk takes you to a small village where the locals congregate on weekends in a choice of small eateries. The attached restaurant offers a good menu at a very favourable price. When not doing touristy things just lay back on the grass and watch the Bosporus traffic pass by. Overall a very pleasant stay.
