About Bosphorus

Experience the treasures of the past as you indulge in luxurious modern-day comforts at The Stay Bosphorus – a landmark mansion built in the 19th century by the Balyan family, the very same architects who designed many palaces and mansions in Istanbul such as the Dolmabahçe Palace.

Located in the picturesque and central neighborhood of Ortaköy, the melting pot of a variety of cultures in the past, The Stay Bosphorus boasts the city’s closest guest rooms to the Bosphorus. Surrounded by charming streets sprinkled with trendy restaurants as well as local cafes and eateries, galleries, jewelers and boutiques, the hotel is just a short trip away from the city’s major attractions and shopping malls, and allows for effortless travel by sea thanks to the enchanting ferry pier that rests right next to it. Situated on the crystal waters of the Bosphorus, neighboring the grand bridge that connects Europe to Asia, The Stay Bosphorus not only vibrates with a modern and hip energy, but also exudes the city’s rich history. Internationally acclaimed design firm, Autoban, has renovated the building to maintain its historical charm, while providing guests with state-of-the-art contemporary design. Needless to say, the rooms enjoy sweeping panoramic views of the Bosphorus from every angle, with the city and its ancient structures as its backdrop. Wake up at the Stay to the sights and sounds of the Bosphorus and see the Asian coast across.
