Lush - A vibrant boutique hotel in Istanbul

Lush describes itself as 'a treasure in Istanbul' and we couldn't agree more.

Located in the centre of the city near Pera and just a few steps away from Taksim Square, the very hip Lush Hotel is a 105 year old classical building which has been renovated to keep it's own unique signature and yet is completely up to date with the resources of the modern world.

Designed by a woman architect, it's 35 individually decorated rooms reflect the multicultural history of Istanbul and each room echos the styles of Classical, Ottoman, Art Nouveau, Post Modern, Pop-Art and Brutal architecture. Each room is more of a life space than a regular hotel room and you feel at home immediately. Each detail, from the door handle to the curtains, has been produced individually for each room.

When Tara and I stayed here for four days last June, we were pleasantly surprised by how young the staff were. They were friendly, always available and extremely polite. Despite their youthful and relaxed appearances - do not expect strictly uniformed staff behind a high counter - they are professional and efficient. Canan, the hotel executive, is a beautiful and lively young woman who runs a smooth ship.

Breakfast is more than just continental. There is a large selection of fresh fruit, cereal and they make wonderful omelettes, too. The hotel also has a spa, sauna, fitness center and a relaxing Brasserie.
