Made up of studios and suites, Hammamhane accommodations offer guests a whole host of amenities that make the hotel nigh-on self-contained. There are private terraces for soaking up the sun and views of Galata Tower. Kitchenettes come with everything from microwaves and stove-tops to flatware. And there are even cleaning facilities. Dining areas, rainforest showers and sumptuously soft goose feather pillows on the bests are just the icing on the cake. Cumulatively, it’s enough to make you feel like you live in Istanbul. In a very stylish way, to boot.
The rooms are indeed appointed well, both practically and stylishly, with furniture that intrudes lightly on the space – all clean, crisp lines and metal accents. And the spaces themselves often have plenty of exposed and whitewashed brick, and the occasional painted statement wall.
For those with exploring on the mind, a stay at Hammamhane puts guests right in the heart of the Beyoğlu neighbourhood, on a street affectionately known as the “Soho” of Istanbul for its shops, galleries and cafes. Beyond that, many of the city’s sightseeing highlights, including Taksim Square, are just a few minutes away and a 10-minute walk will bring you to the tram. Hammamhane is the perfect jumping point for an easy, relaxing city break.
