Your Hosts

  • Sevan Nişanyan and Müjde Tönbekici were for many years celebrated as the co-authors of the annual Little Hotel Book, the Bible of Turkey’s small and unusual hotels. Sevan is also a linguist, author of three enormous tomes on etymology and Turkish place names, an architect of sorts, and a political troublemaker. Having fallen foul of the current Turkish régime, he now lives in exile.
  • Meanwhile Müjde has moved on to new fame as a cooking guru and social media celebrity.
  • İris Nişanyan Vural, their daughter, now runs the hotel. She studied at the Swiss International School for Tourism and Hospitality. She is married to Kaan and has one young child.
