Classic café culture on the shores on the Bosphorus

The House Café chain is one of Turkey's most fashionable places to connect. Now the people who made it a success have brought their class and style to a hotel that has immediately become a favourite with Istanbul's smart social networkers.

As always, it's location that counts and the House Hotel has one of the best settings in all Turkey. It stands on the shores of the Bosphorus, overlooking the Ortakoy district that is the very centre of sophisticated city life in Istanbul.

You have some the world's most famous bistros, coffee shops, bars and restaurants right on your doorstep. Zuma, Angelique, hot soul bars and cool jazz cafés surround the square, with the stately Bosphorus shimmering in the moonlight or the morning sun. This may not be the quietest of retreats, but if you've come to experience the romance and bustle of one of the world's greatest cities, then this is where to begin.
