Hidiv Pavilion

 Untitled Document
Hidiv Kasrı (Hidiv Pavilion), the residence of Abbas Hilmi Pasha, the Khedive of Egypt, was built by the Italian architect Delfo Seminati in 1907. It has been built with the understanding of European style on a quarter of 1000 sq.mt and is located in a large grove (Hidiv Grove) above Çubuklu at the Anatolian side of the Bosphorus.

The gigantic trees in the grove have identity plates. Their shadows cool even the warmest days of Istanbul. The biggest rose garden of Istanbul will be pleased to host you for an enjoyable breakfast at weekends or at 5 o'clock tea. There stands a monumental fountain at the main entrance of the building and the ceiling rises to the roof and the ceiling is covered by stained-glass window. Furthermore there are incredibly elegant pools and fountains in the various parts of the building.

The plan of the building is designed to draw a circle around the pool by the connections between the halls, except the entrance hall. The rooms are at the upper floors. Especially the two main bedrooms over the saloon with fireplace are extremely attractive with its unique woodwork and inner bathrooms. Another characteristic of the building is its tower in which half of the Bosphorus can be seen.
