Situated on the banks of the Bosphorus in the city’s historic Karakoy district, the brand-new and magnificent The PENINSULA ISTANBUL Hotel is set across four buildings, three of which are protected landmarks dating back to the early 1900s, that have been carefully restored to their full splendor. The new hotel features 177 elegant rooms and suites beautifully decorated with bespoke furnishings, kilim-style carpets, mother-of-pearl accents and lavish bathrooms clad in Marmara marble.

The best place to soak up the views is the 5,490-sq-ft Peninsula Suite. Occupying the entire top floor of the hotel’s southernmost building, the sprawling süite features an expansive living room complete with a baby grand piano, a private hammam, and fitness center. When it comes to dining, The Peninsula Istanbul has plenty of choices. Opened in the beginning of July 2023 on the rooftop overlooking the hotel’s beautifully manicured gardens you can find Gallada, a Turk-Asian cuisine restaurant which is created by two-Michelin-starred Turkish chef Fatih Tutak. For a more casual dining affair, The Lobby downstairs serves an all-day Mediterranean-influenced menu, Sunday brunch and afternoon tea. The Peninsula Istanbul Hotel is ideally situated for exploring the city and is in walking distance of an array of landmarks including the Galata Bridge, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque.
