Overview

A five-star Istanbul hotel with its own museum collection, perfectly located in the historic district

The Lowdown

Located on the site of Istanbul’s Great Palace, in the city’s historic Sultanahmet area, Eresin Crown Hotel gives you a fascinating insight into Turkey’s history without you even having to set foot outside the front door. Housing a private museum featuring pieces from the Byzantine, Roman and Hellenistic eras, this boutique museum hotel is beautifully adorned with eye-catching art and artifacts.
However, you surely will want to venture into this fascinating city, and when you do, this five-star hotel’s prime location makes it easy to see the sights. The Underground Cisterns, St. Irene, St Sophia and Topkapi Palace are all easily walkable, at less than a mile away, while The Blue Mosque is also an easy reach.
Despite its history-rich nature and historic-district locale, the hotel is packed with modern luxuries. Rooms come with Jacuzzi tubs, Wi-Fi and international satellite channels, while double-glazing keeps the hum of the city at bay. The stylish Mosaic restaurant serves delicious Turkish and international dishes, with a choice of the elegant interiors or views from the terrace as your backdrop. And after a day’s exploring, you can enjoy a glass of Anatolian wine in the opulent Column Bar.

Rooms

 Superior rooms are elegantly furnished, featuring neutral walls and parquet flooring. Take some time out in your room, making the most of the Wi-Fi, international satellite channels and multi-video and music systems. The Jacuzzi bath and high-end toiletries in the bathroom up the luxe factor.

Dining

Mosaic Restaurant serves international options to suit just about everyone, as well as delicious Turkish specialties. For al-fresco dining, the terrace offers views over the Marmara Sea and mesmerizing minarets of the Blue Mosque.

Location

Located on the site of Istanbul’s Great Palace, in the city’s historic Sultanahmet area, the hotel couldn’t be better situated for sightseeing. Within a mile of the front door, you’ll find St. Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Underground Cisterns, Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar. Venture slightly further afield to discover the Egyptian Spice Bazaar, the Textile Center Beyazit and Taksim Square.

Great Hotel in Istanbul
Bennettis

This Hotel is a gem. Located in the Old City and close to everything. Breakfast is on the roof top looking at either the Blue Mosque or the Sea of Marmara and drinks at night watching the sunset.
The rooms are very comfortable and clean and the staff are amazing and happy to organise anything to ensure that you enjoy your stay in this wonderful city.
