The House Hotel Karaköy is located in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Karaköy on Bankalar Caddesi, a convenient launching pad to explore bohemian Pera, historic Sultanahmet and the Galata Port. Restored by the Agha Khan award-winning Turkish architect Han Tümertekin, the building structure retains original features, while the luxurious modern interiors were designed by Sinan Kafadar who was inspired by its imposing bank vaults, which also gave rise to the hotel’s name. The contemporary classic room interiors also evoke wealth and luxury. An in-house art curator organizes events and exhibitions throughout the hotel. Also, a collection of precious books related to art, culture & music are displayed in the lobby lounge.
