Ottoman Inns in Istanbul, Turkey

Old Istanbul is all about the history and Ottoman culture, and these Ottoman inns keep Ottoman times alive.

The inspiration and decoration are 19th century, but—happily—the comforts and facilities are more modern.

Many inns have rooftop views of Ayasofya, the Blue Mosque, the Bosphorus or the Sea of Marmara.
