OUR STORY

Our Story

A city, that connects Europe and Asia, hosts long-lasting civilizations where religions and languages meet, inspires poets, painters and artists, enchants the lovers with tulips, Judas trees, magnolia smells. Legendary, talismanic city Istanbul… With thousands of stories, legends and mysteries, charming queen of the all cities awaits you to be discovered... Welcome to Istanbul and your home in Istanbul.

As Yaşmak Hotel Collection, we wanted to continue our “themed boutique hotel journey” concept in Romance Istanbul Hotel, which has began with Sultan’s Wives Stories in Hotel Sultania. This time, we were inspired by the legendary Ottoman Empire’s Sultans’ Talismanic Shirts. Each Talismanic Shirt has fascinated us with its unique charming story. Talisman was kind of a magic. It has a deep-rooted history, especially in the Eastern Societies. In fact, each society had its own talismanic rituals. In Ottoman Empire, Sultans and important statesmen used to wear these talismanic shirts. The belief is that the talismanic shirts were imbued with protective powers and were meant to be worn under armor in battle. Moreover, the shirts are believed to be the source of healing, bring victory in battles, protect Sultans and their families from evil and bring them happiness and peace. Afterall, every talismanic shirt has created its own adventure…

In our Romance Istanbul Hotel, we would like to involve you in this wondering adventure with the Talismanic Shirts that has a great importance in Ottoman Sultan's life. Each of our 39 luxury room designed by combining modern and traditional architecture and moreover, each of the room has its own charming story. Each Talismanic Shirt in the room is handcrafted and inspired by its original. Although the original shirts were embroidered with prays in Quran, the shirts in our rooms do not include any religious items and prays. The shirts in the rooms contain original love poems of Sultans and sentences of Ottoman Literature Poets in Arabic and Persian languages that were designed by calligraphers.

In fact, the talismans were not only in Sultan’s shirts. Each historical inheritance in the city used to be protected by talismans. To complete the talismanic stories and tell our guests the charming legends of fascinating city Istanbul, we decorated each corridor of our hotel with hand-crafted ceramic miniatures of both talismanic and famous buildings of the city. According to a common belief, talismans protect not only Sultans, but also Istanbul from evils and save the city from disasters. We would be more than happy to welcome you in our hotel and bring you one step closer to discover Sultan’s and Istanbul’s talismans.
