SUMAHAN IS A CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURAL TREASURE AND A HAVEN IN THE HEART OF ISTANBUL
Sumahan on the Water regularly tops the list of Istanbul’s best hotels. It is an enduring design phenomena, a small luxury hotel that integrates high-quality design with respect for its historical and natural setting. The essence of the Sumahan experience is modern comfort, friendly and personal service in an ancient and spectacular context. It is a contemporary architectural treasure, a gateway to Turkish culture and a safe perch to experience the mesmerizing panorama of the Istanbul skyline.

And Sumahan is right on the water. The sound of water lapping at the edge of the garden, the sight of dolphins, as they break through the air, the sunshine filtered by rows of wild plum trees will transport you to another world. Sumahan is not just a place to stay but an oasis, a uniquely intimate way to experience the gentler side of Istanbul.
SUMAHAN IS A hotel with history.
If it all feels intoxicating, there is a reason why. This complex of late Ottoman industrial buildings was built in the 1820’s, during the reign of Sultan Mahmut II as a seaside factory to produce ‘suma’, the unadulterated spirit used to make high proof ‘rakı’, the Ottomans’ favourite tipple. Where today a sea taxi ferries hotel guests across the Bosphorus, barges laden with figs would arrive to keep the stills of the Sumahan busy. Since 2005, Sumahan continues to produce a different kind of spirit – that of effortless hospitality in an extraordinarily beautiful setting.

Getting There: The hotel is situated in Çengelköy, a pretty village once home to a mixed population of Greeks, Armenians, Jews and other non-Muslim minority groups. It’s renowned for its fish restaurants, some with fabulous views down the Bosphorus to the first suspension bridge and beyond, and Ottoman period, wood-built waterfront mansions known as yalı. Indeed there’s not a whole not to do in the immediate vicinity of the Sumahan bar watch the ships and flights of shearwaters glide up and down the strait – and that of course is a major plus in this often noisy, frenetic city.
