Casa di Bava is a living piece of history and a story continually being written. Built as the home of Captain Bava in the 1880s for its dockside vicinity and central location to the commerce of the thriving Ottoman trading hub Beyoğlu, this building was the first prominent stone build of the area and has always been rented accommodation, albeit to some rather distinguished guests. Captain Bava had no family here but chose to share his life and home with people who became his friends. Casa di Bava has stayed true to its understated levels of comfort and luxury that its guests instilled here.
The building has always been and is today a place of rest and relaxation after long business days, to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city. Most of all it has been a place that many people from around the world have called home. Come and add your story and live some history in a place you too can call a home.
Home away from home
We have carefully chosen local artists, designers and tradesmen’s work to sit together at Casa Di Bava. Our rooms have been considered and designed with you in mind.
After every inch of the city has been explored, you can step through your door, kick off your shoes, relax in your chair, dine in the comfort of your settings and recharge for the next day.
