Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Istanbul

Hammamhane
A hotel made up of studios and suites, Hammamhane is a convenient, stylish place to stay right in the heart of Istanbul’s Beyoğlu neighbourhood.

Mama Shelter Istanbul
Mama Shelter Istanbul, the younger sibling of Mama Shelter Paris, has an enviable Beyoğlu location and bold, whimsical interiors.
The House Apart
Chic and cheap serviced apartments dotted around the city, the brain child of a slick chain of Istanbul cafes.
Witt Istanbul Suites
Witt Istanbul professes to provide home comfort in a boutique hotel ambiance, and indeed it does, but only if your home is an Autoban-designed interioristas paradise located in a trendy arty district. =display:"
Bebek Hotel
Located in the smartest village along the Bosphorus Shore, the charming Bebek hotel, with its great rooms and terrific views, is a perfect place to escape the hubbub of Istanbul's centre.
Ansen Suite Hotel
Pleasantly informal, the Ansen Suite Hotel is a welcome addition to the more traditional hotels in the Pera district of Beyoglu. The hotel is within walking distance of the buzzing streets around Istiklal Caddesi.=d"
Lush
Colourful, small-ish hotel with a low-key atmosphere that is rare in this bustling party area of Istanbul. Stylish and modern yet cosy and welcoming, the Lush hotel is capturing a niche market so book in quickly. =di"
I’Zaz
Tiny and kooky boutique guesthouse with only four rooms is adored by young creatives.
A’jia Hotel
Located in the Asian Shore village of Kanlica, the sleek contemporary A'jia hotel is an excellent option for style-conscious travellers.
The Sofa Hotel
One of the new breed of design hotels in Istanbul, the Sofa expertly combines personal service, excellent facilities and a wonderful central location, which sets it apart from the competition.
Kybele Hotel
A decidedly maximalist design ethos, zany colour scheme and plethora of Turkish lamps set the tone of this charmingly off-beat hotel in Sultanahmet.
Richmond Hotel
The only decent hotel on the entire length of Istiklal Caddesi, this contemporary hotel is ideally located for visitors planning to take in Istanbul's cultural and pastoral pleasures.
Ibrahim Pasa Hotel
Located in a late Ottoman house, the Ibrahim Pasa is a charming blend of the traditional and the contemporary - one of the best small hotels in Istanbul.
Büyük Londra
This charmingly eccentric hotel in Pera is a good option for those on a restricted budget. Not only does it have a certain (shabby) chic, it's also well located to explore Beyoglu.
Empress Zoe
Stylish in its simplicity and located in the heart of Sultanahmet, the Empress Zoe takes some beating for cultural visitors. Relax with a drink in the garden or on the roof terrace and soak up the atmosphere of Old Istanbul.yEventWatcherDiv
