The architecture of Six Senses Kocataş Mansions is maintained to homogenise with its surrounding buildings. Situating by the Bosphorus, the hotel maximises the view of this natural beauty and historical significance into the hotel. Guest rooms facing the Bosphorus allow full view of the waterway though its large windows to complement the interior.
