36 Hours in Istanbul, Asian Side

The man-made and natural light shows don’t get much better than from the terrace of Tapasuma, a restaurant on the grounds of the Sumahan on the Water hotel. As the moonlight on the water intensifies, the sparkling lights on the First Bosporus Bridge change from white or yellow to pink or blue and even turquoise. The seasonal menu is international with a Turkish twist. Start with Circassian chicken with walnuts or a skewer of sesame-coated beef with a Roquefort dip, then move to sea bass stew or marinated fillet of beef. End with three Turkish milk puddings: rosewater, berries and mastic. Or try the semolina halvah with caramelized pears and vanilla ice cream. Sip your Sevilen Isabey cabernet-merlot into the night as Turkish executives at the next table discuss their investments.

  • If a guest has arrived before you and is checking in, please wait in your car until asked to enter by the hotel attendant.
  • The temperature of each guests is taken upon arrival. If any of the guests register temperatures that exceed the limit specified by the Ministry, they will not be allowed into the hotel and they will be directed to the nearest health care provider.

The test would be carried out at the Hotel for a total fee of 250TL, including VAT.

Mandatory Rules while in the Room

  • To maximize the effectiveness of the cleaning products used to disinfect the room, textile products should not touch any surfaces with which your shoes have come into contact. Therefore, avoid contact with the floor when using any provided textile products. These include pillows, piques, duvets, sheets, etc. Also, avoid placing the towels in the bathrooms on the floor with the exception of foot towels.
  • It is important that you use the trash bags provided for the waste in your room and bathroom. If you have additional personal trash such as shoeboxes, gift boxes, bags, hygiene products, etc., please request extra trash bags. Keep all trash bags tied and do not leave them out in the open.
  • The informational booklet usually found in your room has been removed to comply with the pandemic measures. Thank you for your sensitivity to the environment.
  • During this time, we encourage as much natural ventilation as possible. The filters of your room's air conditioning system have always been cleaned routinely, however currently they are being cleaned even more frequently. Your air conditioning and television remotes have been disinfected specifically for your use.
  • During your stay, a guest from outside your room is not allowed to visit you.
  • The layout in the garden lawn complies with social distancing protocols. Please do not change this layout.
  • Please inform the reception in advance if you do not want anyone to enter your room during your stay to perform the daily room cleaning. If you prefer, service can be limited to fresh towels.

  • Turkish Hamam service at the Health Center will be limited to 30 minutes and done by appointment only. There will be 60-minute interval between each appointment to allow for hygienic cleaning.

Mandatory Rules for Restaurant Use

  • The interior and exterior layouts of the restaurant comply with social distancing protocols. Please do not change this layout.
  • We continue to provide single-use towels in our public restrooms. Additionally, you will find hand sanitation stations throughout the hotel. As our restaurant also serves guests from the outside, we recommend that you use the bathroom facilities in your own room should the need arise.
