In Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet district, the Hypnos Design Hotel is an eclectic 11-room boutique with views of the magnificent Hagia Sofia and the Bosphorus. The comfortable rooms vary in size and they all feature a petite French or larger sit-out balcony. Each has been carefully designed around a different theme. Think gold, brass and copper fittings against dramatically dark walls in the Ottoman room, folksy patterns and contrasting colors in the Gypsy room, and full-on movie star opulence in the Glamour room. Fill up on Turkish breakfast specialties at the ground-floor Eon café and head out to explore the nearby attractions; Topkapı Palace and the Blue Mosque are both a 10-minute walk away. Return for dinner or cocktails at the Eon café, an intimate candlelit dining room. Remember to book a table; this place is small and beautiful, and it can get lively in the evenings.
In the Area
The Hypnos Design Hotel is in the busy Sultanahmet district, surrounded by the Byzantine city walls. Step outside and plunge into thousands of years of history. The area has plenty of restaurants, and it’s just a stroll to the Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar. A source of deep relaxation in the form of the Cagaloglu Hamam, an authentic Turkish bathhouse, is just minutes away. Hop on the tram at Gülhane station for a trip along the famous peninsula.
