Storied Architecture

It's not every day you get to stay in a century-old Turkish prison, refurbished for luxury living. Our building was designed by Mimar Kemaleddin Bey beginning in 1918 as a prime example of Turkish neoclassical architecture, with an emphasis on pointed arches, ornate tiles, dramatic domes and towers. You can still experience many of those original elements today during your stay with us.
