Feel indulged upon your arrival to Istanbul

The word guest is not a euphemism at Sumahan. We will press a pleated skirt, find a guide who specialises in Byzantine mosaics or arrange an experienced driver to get you through a busy schedule of meetings - and do just about anything to make your stay a pleasant one.


    Waterfront is a casual-chic restaurant in Çengelköy, Istanbul that starts the day off with a rich breakfast between 07.30am - 10.30am followed by an all-day Turkish and International cuisine à la carte menu. The waterfront terrace is a perfect place for lunch or dinner.

  • Wellness

    The Sumahan Wellness strategy is to make you feel that much better when you leave us than before you arrived. You can relax at Sumahan’s own private Turkish Hamam, unwind with a variety of specialized massage of your choice or for those who wish to keep fit, we offer a well-lit fitness room with state of the art equipment.

  • Meetings and Private Dining

The meeting room overlooks the Bosphorus and comfortably accommodates up to 16 people. Also, available as a special private dining venue.

  • Library

    The Library (in the lounge near our reception desk) has 800 books all with a Turkish focus. The books, mostly in English but some just in Turkish for our Turkish-speaking guests, are mainly about places within Turkey and historic sites in Istanbul but also include books on Turkish culture and history, novels by Turkish authors, books on Turkish arts and crafts, Turkish cookbooks, and the like. Our guests often browse the Library while waiting in the lounge, but we also encourage our books to be enjoyed anywhere else in the hotel — dining area, garden, or your room. Happy reading!
