The owners of this small designer hotel just off the Hippodrome have managed to straddle the divide between sleek modernist and antique Ottoman with great success. Parquet floors, crisp white linen, marble bathrooms and gold mirrors make the smallish rooms distinctive, and the building's common areas ooze class. After enjoying the excellent breakfast, guests often have to be encouraged to leave the building - the alternative option of sinking into one of the foyer lounge's leather couches or claiming a chair on the rooftop terrace with its Blue Mosque view is just too tempting. It's worth paying for one of the 12 deluxe rooms as they offer better value than the 12 standard options. From Lonely Planet's Istanbul, 2010 edition. Here, Ibrahim Pasha is singled out as "Istanbul's top boutique hotel".
Ibrahim Pasha, a merging of two turn-of-the-20th-century Ottoman homes, is located in a central but quiet street of historical Sultanahmet. The ground floor has a lobby with two fireplaces; the 4-story building has an elevator. The rooftop terrace has a breathtaking view of the Blue Mosque and the Sea of Marmara and has a bar for the exclusive use of the guests.
A rich continental/ Turkish breakfast is served from 7:30 to 11:00 hours in the lobby. The hotel provides amenities as dry cleaning, library, lobby, reception and smoke-free hotel.
