Tomtom Suites

Once an old convent for Franciscan nuns, today the Tom tom suites is a sophisticated and intimate boutique hotel in the heart of East Istanbul.With only 20 spacious suites to hole up in, as soon as you’re through the door you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into your own home away from home.


Takism Square and all its shops, restaurants, arcades and bazaars are just a short scenic walk away. But to get the bigger picture, go above ground level to Tom Tom’s rooftop terrace bar. It has panoramic views across the only city in the world that spans two continents. From here, watch Istanbul’s population wake up or its sun set whilst calls to prayer vibrate through town.

Your Room

Tom Tom is in tip top shape, especially for a place that is over 110 years old. The suites natural, neutral tones are decorated with bright, vibrant art work. They are chic and modern whilst at the same time staying true to the building’s interesting heritage.The carrera marble bathrooms are inspired by Turkey’s traditional baths, except they also have the modern luxuries of a Jacuzzi and heated flooring.High ceilings, handmade rugs and ceramics, not forgetting, the personal Nepresso machine are more of our favourite features. Sip on your coffee while enjoying views of courtyard, consulate gardens, Marmara Sea or Topkaki palace – a pretty good choice if you ask us.

Why We Like It

The Tom Tom Suites have especially adopted the term ‘younique’ to emphasise that it’s all about you. You can choose your type of pillow, preferred newspaper and customise your own mini bar snacks – nothing’s too much to ask. But if you do need to briefly touch base with reality there are complimentary iPads to use over breakfast. We’d describe it not as a hotel stay, but as a way of life – and it’s one we’d love to get used to.
