The Bank Hotel Istanbul Architecture

Architecture Han Tümertekin

Architect Han Tümertekin endeavored to keep the multilayered soul of the historical building intact.

Old World grandeur reigns in the public spaces, with marble columns and fireplaces, ceramic tiles, and an elegantly age-worn staircase. The German-built bank vault, just off the lobby, now hosts a wine cellar where guests can take part in tastings.

Interior design Sinan Kafadar

Classical architecture is augmented by designer Sinan Kafadar’s flair for the eclectic.

A rich color palette of oranges and greens—recalling the building’s moneyed past—offset the cool marble majesty. Texture comes courtesy of custom-designed furniture imported from Italy and works by area artists. Guestrooms are another alluring balancing act, with crisp white linens, soaring ceilings, crown moldings, Carrara marble bathrooms, and abstract art.

Food & Drink Where East meets West

Set on the rooftop, Terrace Restaurant offers unbeatable views over the Bosphorus and the historic city center.

Terrace Restaurant sets a worldly table with international cuisine rich in local flavors. Bold pairings embody the East-meets-West ethos of this continent-straddling city. And it all comes with stunning views of the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Sustainability Keeping an eye on our Conscious Hotel Principles

“The main principle we abide by is to protect our history and culture.”

The building was updated according to the principle,"Restore without damaging authenticity and protect its artistic value." Because of this, energy and resources were reduced during construction.

Icon Waste (1)


The hotel does not offer any single-use plastics or products. Paper waste is reduced through digital filing, and plastic room keys have been replaced with wooden cards.

Icon Energy (1)


The hotel uses solar-powered energy across the venue. In addition, energy-efficient lighting helps to curb excessive energy consumption.
