Best places in Istanbul

Sumahan Hotel

Location

Sumahan is just outside Çengelköy, a part of the city that still preserves its air of an authentic Bosphorus neighorhood. It is a village of wooden houses, fish restaurants and seaside promenades. The Bosphorus-front mansions nearby are among the stately homes of Turkey, and include the residence of Abdullah Pasa, the son of a Çengelköy boatman who went on to become the Grand Vezir. Çengelköy is famous for its fruit orchards and market gardens and had the royal palace where the last Ottoman Sultan was raised.

Hotel Information

Sumahan sits on the very edge of the Bosphorus Straits which separate Europe from Asia and link the cold waters of the Black Sea to the warm waters of the Sea of Marmara and the Aegean beyond. The Bosphorus feeds the heart and spirit of the city.
It was built in the mid-nineteenth century to produce “suma” the unadulterated spirit used to make raki, the Ottomans’ favourite tipple. Where today a motorised launch ferries hotel guests to and from downtown, barges laden with figs would arrive to keep the stills of the Sumahan busy.
