Romance Istanbul Hotel

Lying at the very heart of the old city, a stay at the Romance Istanbul Hotel will put you on the doorstep of Istanbul’s most celebrated attractions.

Modern elegance meets historical charm at the Romance Istanbul Hotel. Interiors imitate the sumptuous style of Ottoman-era palaces, with custom-made furnishings and a handcrafted talisman shirt (replicas of the 16th-century originals at the Topkapi Palace) on display in each room. Marble-floored bathrooms come beautifully appointed with rainfall showers and Iznik-tiled walls. For added luxury, book yourself into one of the rooms that come with a furnished terrace or French balcony overlooking the city.

The Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern and Archaeology Museum are all within easy walking distance of the hotel, whilst the Gülhane tram stop just outside will get you to any attractions further afield. After return from a day ofsightseeing, you can head straight to Romance’s Allure Spa where you’ll find a gorgeous hammam, sauna and swimming pool (complete with a wave machine). Choose from a delightful menu of massage treatments and other therapies.
