Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.
This is an 18th century Rococo style structure built by Sultan Ahmed III, which is located just outside the Topkapi Palace gates. Each corner has marble window grilles, which were used for dispensing iced water or sherbet during the Ottoman rule.
Good located, you can arrive there by personal car but also by using public transportation. Beautiful lights in the evening. Not as crowded as the other mosques in Istanbul. Must visit 100%.
+ located very close to Camlica Hill (walking distance), from where you can see all the city.
I love love love their beyti doner, the best I haver tried. Doner durum and/or with rice is excellent too. This place is old, basic and simple but the doner is incredible.An absolute Must for the a fast doner with no frills. Kuzguncuk is a great little place to wander off too, so dont miss out on the little streets...

My wife, one-year-old son, and I stayed at The Bosphorus House for one week and had the most comfortable stay. The room was clean, spacious, and had a small kitchenette equipped with everything we needed.

"Fantastic venue for a meeting - nothing any trouble"
reviewed 17 February 2020 by Catriona F
We came here for a meeting and had lunch on the sea. It was fantastic. We had a lovely conference room won the sea . Food was amazing and the view is even better. Really cannot recommend highly enough. We then got a sea taxi to the European side. Such an amazing experience.
We quickly crossed to the Asia side of Istanbul and looking for a quite place away from tourists. What a nice hotel this is. Interior is amazing, the view even better. nice staff, even if we just came for drinks, thank you.
I stayed here for three nights and all was very good. The room was a corner room with nice views both directions. The people were very cordial and seeking to please. It is a ways from the city on the European side but also not so busy. Nice stay. Close to universities.
Excellent location, next to tupe station,
walking distance from a large shopping centre where you find authentic Turkish food and drserts for low prices. Breakfast was lavish and of high quality. I will be back
