“Ishak Pasa is located on the walls of Topkapi Palace in the heart of Sultanahmet and recently undertook a complete renovation creating a luxurious and contemporary 16 room boutique hotel with an Ottoman flavour. Ishak Pasa Boutique Hotel now under new ownership and management has complimentary Wi-Fi throughout, a full daily buffet breakfast that includes continental and Turkish tastes and a bar/café that can be enjoyed in the atmospheric courtyard setting.
This 200 year old building was lived in by “Ishak Pasa” who was one of the Ottoman Emperor's Pasha (personal security). After he was assigned to another city, the building was used as a dormitory for ladies working at Topkapi Palace.
At the end of the Ottoman times the historic building began use as a school for the Quran. At the beginning of the Turkish Republic after the Ottoman Empire, many small Quran educational houses were closed by the government and all religious courses consolidated as one foundation. After these changes, the building was used as a government building until 2012.
We look forward to welcoming you to the history and elegance of Ishak Pasa Boutique Hotel.”
