A Building with a Story: Appartement des Soeurs Gardes Malades
Tomtom Suites is located at Galata, the area which best represents the multi-cultural identity of Istanbul, one of the world’s biggest and most energetic metropol. Tomtom Suites is an oasis where elegance mixes with tranquility and history meets the 21st century.
A witness to the last century of the Ottoman Empire’s capital city, Tomtom Suites’ story goes back to the 1850s. The building seen today was built in 1901 as the Soeurs Garde-Malades Apartment, where there had once been an outbuilding of the French Palace, reserved for the Franciscan nuns. After the years of occupancy, following the departure of the Levantines and Greek families, who used to be the residents of the apartment until the end of the 1920s, the structure faced destruction for many years to come, due to changing hands and neglect.
When the neighborhood went through a major renovation at the beginning of the 2000s and thus became the city’s cultural, artistic, entertainment and gourmet center. The building, as a result of the careful restoration faithful to its authenticity, obtained its fascinating appearance. Tomtom Suites opens its doors on a silent street of the city’s most appealing area, and is more of a life style than a hotel.
