The word guest is not a euphemism at Sumahan. We will press a pleated skirt, find a guide who specialises in Byzantine mosaics or arrange an experienced driver to get you through a busy schedule of meetings - and do just about anything to make your stay a pleasant one.


A casual-chic restaurant by the Bosphorus serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The day starts off with a richly varied breakfast followed by a Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine à la carte menu served, brasserie-style, all day. A refreshing business lunch, a romantic dinner watching the sunset, drinks with your group of friends or colleagues, special celebrations… There's something for everyone. Guests over the age of 12 are welcome.


A world of wellness and relaxation. Choose from our options; Turkish hamam, massage and fitness. The Sumahan Wellness strategy is to make you feel that much better when you leave us than before you arrived.

business meetings
& company retreats

Sumahan Hotel provides privacy in the heart of Istanbul. Whether it’s for a brainstorming session, office celebration or a company retreat, Istanbul’s leading businesses have discovered the secluded and scenic atmosphere of Sumahan’s meeting facilities as a place to get ideas flowing and effortlessly get the job done. The meeting room overlooks the Bosphorus and accommodates up to 12 people. Also, available as a special private dining venue. 


The Library has 800 books, mostly in English but some in Turkish, chosen for their focus on places in Turkey and historic sites in Istanbul - but also include books on Turkish culture and history, novels by Turkish authors, Turkish arts and crafts, Turkish cookbooks, and the like. Guests often browse the Library while waiting in the lounge, but we also encourage our books to be enjoyed anywhere else in the hotel — Happy reading!
