Grand Hotel De Londres
The Grand Hotel de Londres (also: Buyuk Londra) has been open for over one hundred years and while its interior is immaculately kept, there’s something about it that is charmingly stuck in the past. It’s almost as if you might find Ernest Hemingway still at the bar, reviewing notes for his story in the 1922 Toronto Daily Star. Wander through the lobby’s antique furniture, past the resident African Grey Parrot and requisite portrait of Ataturk to the tiny elevator that will take you up to the rooftop. The bar there is scenic without being at all sceney, no seasonal cocktails or artisanal ice cubes here, just a simple but serviceable menu and beautiful views of Golden Horn and the old city. If you can time it right, arrive before sunset to hear the call-to-prayer echo throughout the city and then descend the grand staircase back into the noisy nightlife of Pera.
