The building was made from wood at the end of 18th century and it is situated at Sultanahmet quarter, which is at the core of the old Istanbul, the capital city of three great civilizations.
The Sultanahmet Mosque and it’s social complex, the Sultanahmet square, where the building is situated, are surrounded by the Great Palace constructed during the Byzantine Empire era. The garden wall of the Great Palace is surviving today; you can take your breakfast at the shadow of the Great Palace wall at the Hotel Turkish House Sultanahmet; during the reconstruction of the hotel, structure remnants dating from the late Byzantine early Ottoman era were found; they were taken under protection as first degree archeological remnants and offered to the appreciation of hotel guests, being visible under a glass corridor.
The historical building was reconstructed in traditional wood carcass system and architectural style, as in the original structure. The traditional “lath and plaster” technique is made through hammering wood lath on wood carcass with lime mortar. Wall and floor panels made with İznik tiles, which is a traditional Turkish art, bordures as well as ceramics are used in the building. Again wall motifs called “hand-drawn”, an Ottoman Turkish hand craft are drawn by artists. Stone wall technique is performed in the garden with original “Khorasan Coating”, “the marble of Marmara” is used in the bathrooms.
The traditional wooden Turkish house built at Sultanahmet, Istanbul is an historical cultural asset, which should be preserved; the Hotel shall provide accommodation for its guests as a boutique hotel under the name of Hotel Turkish House Sultanahmet.
