Stayed at this gorgeous historic 'yali' for couple nights and we enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend getting one of the corner rooms which gives the best views of this city as you wake up you feel like you are right on top of the Marmara Sea! We had the breakfast included in our deal and they had...

The building is a traditional luxury construction but the decor cheap imitations. The breakfast was of poor quality, and the service disaffected. You have to find the waiter to get a second cup of watery coffee. The slighty remote location is great for relaxation but would have been aided by a better atmosphere in the lounge area as the social...

Located directly on the Boshprus, the hotel offers wonderful views of both bridges and the European Side of Istanbul. You are able to walk to many of the restaurants along the water. The staff is very helpful and gracious. We enjoyed our breakfast buffet offering traditional Turkish foods. The tables are placed over partial glass tiles where the water appears...

I read all TripAdvisor reviews before booking. I was ready for the best and worst ... And I fell in love with this hotel from the entrance, reception, my room , which ticks all the boxes. My room was # 27, overlooking the courtyard. Breakfast is ok, but they will happily make you eggs without any extra charge. Their generosity...

Rooms are nicely decorated. Feels like the rooms of 100 years ago. What they are lacking is a good service. Breakfast quality is very poor. To my view not anywhere close to what is expected from such a hotel.

Bosphorus Palace Hotel... It was a very nice place to stay with scenery of beautiful bosphorus. I had arranged this hotel to ask my girlfriend if she will marry me, and result was positive. You can watch bosphorus till morning instead of sleeping. From service and cleanliness point of view, it is extremely satisfied for us. As a result of...

Sure, the location is marvelous, no doubt! But if you would like to sleep overnight think twice because a mosque is right the next building and you will be astonished how modern technologies have improved the level of sound at every sunset, sunrise and couple of other times during a day.

This is the hotel you think you are a sultan. Staff is so friendly. They pamper you so much to make you feel at home and comfortable. Hotel is in a great location with a spectacular Bosphorus view.

Staying in Uskudar

Neighbourhood Profile
Uskudar
Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.
