Honestly it has been quite difficult to make this list, although some hotels on this list have pearls and pitfalls. Also there are some extremely loved hotels which ones are not mentioned here due to their categories as small hotels, however they will be mentioned in our future posts. We hope this list will be quite clear enough for you to pick your high standart room when you are travelling Istanbul. Out of this list, when you are travelling Istanbul, please enjoy the ambiance of this city and enjoy every single moment. Have an amazing trip y'all. Sanem Yucesoy 1- Soho House - Beyoğlu

There are only few words clearly explaining this hotel: Comfy - Cozy - Classy - Chic - Smart - Casual - Personal - Perfect Location - Logical - Adorable This is a heaven in the middle of the city! First of all their main team is rocking! They are absolutely aware of what is hospitality and always ready to share their best. Soho's are always one of our favorites in other countries as well but in Istanbul they totally rule with their style with reasonable prices at their restaurants, of course with the quarantee of Soho's.

2- Hotel Kempinski Çırağan Palace

Living in a dream of 19th century's Sultana! This is what i dream when i step in the hotel. As Kempinski group is perfect with picking the unique buildings for their hotels in Istanbul they should be proud with picking 19th century Ciragan Palace. Hotel has 2 sections; one where hotel and restaurants stand for and the other is the historical building can be hired for special events and conferences and meetings. Rooms especially Pasa Suit is offering one of the best views in town in the hotel section. But if you are staying in another hotel and if you need a greater escape for a while, it can be Gazebo Cafe is quite cute but Le Fumoir is my favorite obviously the top one for me. Even Le Fumoir is hookah cafe in front of historical building however the design is so great on the garden you don't really stay in a room smoke-filled. Of course service is so kind and elegant. Highly recommended.

3- Witt Design Hotel

Artsy stay in Istanbul. Witt has been probably one of my kind of accommodation. Doesn't matter how large your room is or how many facilities your hotel offers but the hygiene and hospitality and of course modest but rich breakfast. Only if you don't like hills, this can be only handicap to reach your hotel from tramline direction, however if a little hill is not a matter for you, this hotel with its coziness, artdeco style decoration and kind personnel will make your stay unique!

4- Four Seasons İstanbul Sultanahmet

Classic, meaningful, historic and real stay. In the heart of Blue Mosque area, there is no competitive one for this hotel in its standarts. With its background this building will surprise you, as you'll be staying at the old Sultanahmet Jail. Rooms are quite romanticly decorated which fits perfectly for FS group. Staff is so cool, helpful as much as they can. And as my fav, their garden is one of the most beautifully decorated ones you can ever see. 5- Pera Palace Jumeirah Hotel

Romantic, historical, unforgettable stay. Pera Palace is definitelly uncomparable to any other hotel as a building of 19th century by Alexander Valluri. Our dear Italian style hotel placed in the middle of Beyoglu district to host travelers of famous Orient Express. It's countless how many important and famous people used to stay here. The top famous one is Agatha Christie writer of "Murder on the Orient Express". Her room can be booked but you don't need to insist on that room as the other ones are quite chic and romantic as well.

6- Raffles Hotel

Coolest stay for business trips. Not only for business trips but also if you are into shopping before you head to your room Raffles Hotel probably is one of the dearest ones. It's location, Zorlu Center in Zincirlikuyu district, offers a high-end shopping mall with PSM area which is the most important Performance Center of town where you can book your ticket for current concert or event. This hotel with its facilities and itself will be quite suitable for couples during business trip

7- Shangri La Hotel

A real Asian kind of hospitality. I love large and refreshing lobbies if i look for luxurious hotels. And Shangri La has this large beautiful atmosphere. Besides their zealous welcome desk their restaurants are so great. If you need a great offer with facilities at the hotel Shangri La is the right adress for you. Before booking please consider the traffic in between Kabatas - Ortakoy districts as the hotel is located right in the middle Besiktas area.

8- Hotel Les Ottomans

Some of the blogs will be mentioning this hotel as boutique... But what is boutique? If you are looking for a real escape and if you really not into doing something touristy i love the location of this hotel, otherwise the traffic would be quite a bit boring for you to go in to the town and come back. Other than that Hotel Les Ottomans can be extremely highly recommended with its hammam and spa! Honestly it's ambiance and romantism filling air. You should take a walk by Bosphorus and when you turn back to hotel enjoy the lovely service by water.

9- Hyatt Centric

A real business trip hotel! Hyatt Centric is not located in the middle of touristy areas but we personally love the district called Levent quarter where white collars head out for dinner. You can find great restaurants around and the malls will be quite satisfing for shoppers. Besides the hotel management is always clear about maintaining the level and what kind of service they like to focus on. If you need coziness in modern style with glittering ambiance you are at right place.

10- Tomtom Suites

Other artsy modern hotel in Beyoglu district. With it's location in a walking distance to the most famous Istiklal Street, Tomtom Suites is probably the most suitable one for the ones who are willing to enjoy the backstreets at night before heading to hotel. Also with its decoration, it's one of the most unique ones with carefully and delicatelly selected art pieces. The restaurant at the roof top of the hotel, Nicole is one of the top 5 restaurants in Istanbul, by Chef Aylin Yazicioglu.
