The Peninsula Istanbul

Istanbul, Turkey

Located in Istanbul’s historic Karaköy district, the hotel anchors Galataport, a waterfront revitalization project that includes art galleries, restaurants, boutiques, and a cruise-ship port. The hotel is close to Istanbul’s most iconic landmarks, including Galata Tower, Galata Bridge, Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque, The Blue Mosque, and Topkapi Palace. A total of 177 elegantly appointed accomodations include 138 guest rooms and 39 lavish suites, most with sweeping views over the Bosphorus and beyond to the rooftops of Istanbul’s famous Old Town. While relaxing alongside the hotel’s Bosphorus-front swimming pool, a delicious array of Turkish mezze, cold and hot tapas, fresh salads and sandwiches, sushi, and desserts are offered throughout the day with an extensive list of refreshing beverages and cocktails.

Defining Factor

The Peninsula Istanbul is comprised of four exquisite buildings – three of them historic and beautifully restored – and welcomes guests arriving by land or sea. First one is called Merkez Han which has built by The Dock Company on Karaköy waterline between 1910 and 1914 next to the passenger terminal. That is why the second iconic building is called Passenger Hall. As the third one, Çinili Han built in 1910 and served as a post office by the General Directorate of Turkish. As the fourth building of The Peninsula Istanbul, The Warehouse was the first modern warehouse of Istanbul. Today it includes rooms, meeting rooms and a large ballroom with Medina Umbrellas and a Bosphorus view from the terrace area.
