The Gümüşyan Hotel is a boutique hotel with plenty of history and charm. Located right in the heart of Beyoğlu in the Asmalimescit district, it is literally steps away from many of the city’s most popular bars, clubs and restaurants. The hotel is housed in the 19th century building that served as the Gümüşhian family residence for over 100 years. Following major renovations, the hotel opened in late 2011 and features 14 rooms.
The décor is somewhat bare and minimal, with lots of exposed brick, while the headboards and bathroom countertops use heavy blocks of antique wood to a nice effect. There is the Gümüşyan and café at the entrance of the hotel which specializes in seafood and is decorated in a similar style, blending a modern feel with historic touches.
