Hotel Les Ottomans
Les Ottomans' clientele includes state dignitaries and celebrities—evidenced by its concierge offerings, including entrance to exclusive nightclubs and private helicopter and airplane transfers. The former Muhsinzade Mehmet Pasha Mansion, which sits in a fountain and garden complex on the edge of the Bosporus and was refurbished by one of Turkey's most powerful families, opened in 2014 and is now home to 10 spacious, individually designed suites. Flooded with light from tall windows draped in richly hued tapestries, rooms feature parquet floors, exquisite Persian carpets and kilims, antiques, and plush chairs and sofas. The bathrooms have rain showers and Jacuzzis for two. Guests will enjoy complimentary access to the marble-clad spa. During the summer, check out the alfresco waterside tables at The Bar for drinks and an unmatched sunset view.
