Since our foundation in 1994, this very question has always become our rallying cry and what we essentially stand for. Recreation of a unique culture and core values that made their mark in the past, and yet were lost, longed for and sought after in our society today... The values, tangible and intangible, that make Istanbul “Istanbul”… Our answers to this question shaped the framework of our culture as well as the wide range of product and services we offer to our guests.
Today, through Armada Old City Hotel, Armada Terrace Restaurant and the Armada Boat, the cornerstones of our establishment, we strive to delight “Istanbul Lovers” by resurrecting a quintessential identity which marked 19th century Istanbul.
Our unique culture at Armada Old City Hotel that embellished the practice of “Embracing, Protecting and Preserving” authentic Istanbul lifestyle for more than 20 years permeates the quintessential Istanbul Cuisine and the waters of Istanbul. In 2012, the Armada Boat which befits the breathtaking silhouette of Istanbul came to life to provide you the most refined, comfortable and enjoyable tours on the waters of Istanbul, alongside Armada‘s service quality and exquisite cuisine. This elegant, vintage-inspired, hand-made classic wooden boat is an instant classic and simply has it all to redefine the way you organize your events blending luxury, style, comfort and convenience.
Our indoor and outdoor roof-top restaurant, Armada Terrace, reflects a wide array of choices representing authentic Istanbul cooking and is continuously adapted to please the palates of local and foreign guests alike. Our aforementioned guiding principle has also been instrumental at Armada Kitchen in designing our menu. At Armada Terrace, with its magnificant view surrounded by the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia on one side, Marmara Sea and the Prince Islands on the other, aims to present you the finest examples of Istanbul Cuisine with our modern interpretations and unique presentation. Along the way, we have been inspired by recipes that showcase the city’s infamous “Lokanta” and “Meyhane” culture as well as “Home-style” cooking.
In essence, we humbly suggest that the more you get to know Armada, the better you understand Istanbul and the more you know about the wonderful city of Istanbul, the more you feel and cherish Armada Istanbul.
Now, we are inviting you to meet Armada Istanbul and rediscover Istanbul through Armada Old City Hotel, Armada Terrace restaurant and the Armada Boat.
