5 of the most unique accommodations in Istanbul

1) Hotel Splendid Palace

Like something out of a Wes Anderson film, Hotel Splendid Palace harks back to Büyükada’s more glamorous past with its art nouveau flair. From the all-white façade with bright crimson shutters and two silvery flagged domes, to an inner courtyard with vintage bamboo furniture and potted palms, every detail is absolutely splendid (including Café Spitz outside).
