We inspected Vault Karaköy, The House Hotel which was restored by the Agha Khan award-winning Turkish architect Han Tümertekin…

 

Vault Karaköy, The House Hotel is located on Bankalar Caddesi (The Avenue of Banks)—the glory of Constantinople’s financial district—in the upcoming neighborhood of Karaköy. After a falling on hard times after the creation of the Republic, today the area is having a facelift and revival, with an influx of galleries, hotels, restaurants and cafes that rub shoulders with electric and lighting shops.

 

The hotel is next to the former Imperial Ottoman Bank, now the SALT Galata arts and cultural center. Leading Turkish galleries such as Elipsis, Galeri Mana, artSümer and Istanbul’74 are also in the neighborhood. Nearby eateries include hip Bej Café, Karabatak, Naif, Lokanta Maya,  and Unter serving delicious coffee and food, as well as traditional Namlı Gurme for Turkish delicatessen food, Karaköy Lokantası for Turkish delicatessen food and Güllüoğlu for baklava. The Spice Market and Galata Tower are close-by sightseeing destinations while the Jewish Museum is right behind the hotel.
