Spectacular boutique hotel, in the heart of Istanbul but away from all the hassle and bussle of the city - beautiful views watching the ships sail up and down. Often booked out but if you can get in, much more enjoyable than the big chains
The hotel is a renovated Ottoman distillery, right by the Bogazici Strait. The view of the Bogazici Bridge with lights and the reflection on the water, was just incredibly beautiful, design of the room and the bathroom (which also consisted a small Turkish hammam) was...More
My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights recently and we absolutely loved the Sumahan. We decided to spend half our holiday on the European side of Istanbul and the remainder on the Asian side, and found Sumahan to be a marvellous, cosy and...More
Very nice boutique hotel. Cozy, clean, calm, friendly staff. There is amazing view to the European site of Istanbul and the bridge connecting Asian and European site. The food is magnificent. Only negative part is that is far from main attractions.
Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.

As I remember, there was one around 9am and another around 11am and another after 1pm then coming back there were 3 or 4 after noon up til about 8pm. But you should write them from their website and they will send you a schedule. The frequency and lateness of trips somewhat depends on the season as I recall. It is a very sweet boat with inside and outside seating for about 10 people and a lovely way to travel to Karikoy where you can get the tram to the old city (Sultanhamet) or ferries to Kadikoy. You need to schedule in advance with the front desk especially during the high tourist season. We were there in April so it wasn't a problem. Hope that is helpful.
