Edition Istanbul
Schrager's concept hotel for the Marriott group has proved a hit in Istanbul...
Eresin Crown
One of the best small luxury hotels in Istanbul, this boutique 'museum' hotel contains a smattering of items from Istanbul's Archeology Museum. Tucked away behind the Blue Mosque, a drink on its roof terrace is the perfect way to end the day.d=
