A grand boutique hotel on Istanbul's 'Avenue of the Banks'

  • Striking modern interiors inspired by the grand bank vaults
  • Based in the artistic Karaköy district, with an in-house art curator

The hotel in detail

With its majestic façade, Vault Karaköy, The House Hotel is something of a landmark in Istanbul. Once a bank, it has been transformed into an elegant hotel by award-winning architect Han Tümertekin, with designer interiors by Sinan Kafadar. Inside, you’ll find handsome décor and furnishings that showcase the building’s heritage. Expect soaring marble columns and elaborate cornicing, alongside plenty of modern touches.

There are treasures at every turn in Vault Karaköy, The House Hotel. The old vaults have become something of a feature and now house an extensive wine collection. Pick a bottle to accompany an evening of fine dining at Kasa Lokanta. Or relax with a cocktail in an LED-lit booth beside the aptly named Gold Bar. Elsewhere, there’s a precious book collection to peruse and spa to while away the hours in. Or, if you can’t pull yourself away from the luxury of your suite, book an in-room massage or private yoga session. The hotel also offers a handy smart phone for making complimentary phone calls. 

Art aficionados will be well served. Not only does the hotel boast its own curator and stage exclusive exhibitions, but it’s a stone's throw from Istanbul’s creative hotspots. Next door you’ll find SALT Galata, a cultural centre housed in the old Imperial Ottoman Bank. While a number of other galleries, from Elipsis to Instabul’74, are moments away. After taking in some art, wander back along Karaköy where you’ll find plenty of hip cafés and boutiques.
