Hotel Description

Unless you’re fluent in Turkish, those semi-anonymous initials are doing you a favor. HHK stands for Hayriye hanım Konağı, roughly translatable as the mansion of Lady Hayriye, a name associated with good luck and blessings — and this historic house, built in 1850 and situated on one of the city’s seven hills, just beneath Suleymaniye mosque in a non-touristy section of Istanbul, is the real deal.

Inside, the look is old-world, with attentive service to match — expect ornate chandeliers, heavy drapery, gilded bedframes, and decorative tile mosaics. The suites are named after sultans with complicated backstories involving slave raids and concubines — but they also conveniently offer satellite TVs and wireless internet. The period furnishings are lovely, provided that you have a taste for the traditional, but the mansion’s finest asset is its physical position. Many rooms offer privileged views over the Bosphorus and Golden Horn; find the finest vantage point on the terrace, which also contains a small swimming pool and a dining area where a Turkish breakfast is served each morning.

Stepping outside the HHK, you have the best of both worlds: though within easy walking distance to many of the city’s highlights, you’re also in an authentic Istanbul neighorhood that’s wonderfully absent of tourists. Strolling these blocks, you’ll see down-to-earth bakeries and shops where locals take their morning coffee or shop for lamb and potatoes. Should you require some Turkish-style relaxation after a day of hoofing it up and down the city’s ancient hills, the HHK’s onsite hammam features a signature exfoliating treatment tied to Ottoman tradition. Or you can just enjoy a glass of Raki on the terrace, looking out over the lights of the city.
