First & Fourth Vakif Hans Istanbul

First & Fourth Vakif Hans Istanbul
Kemaleddin Bey was another of the main architects from the First National Architecture movement and around 1910 he built four large hans in the streets between Sirkeci and Eminonu ; these were actually Istanbul’s first modern office blocks.  Only two have survived and the Fourth Vakıf Han is the most noticeable as it stands opposite the renowned shop, Ali Muhiddin Hacı Bekir, that is famous for making the first ever Turkish Delight (lokum). 

The French Army used the building as its headquarters after the First World War and after that it was abandoned until it was restored in 2005 into the World Park Hotel that is now the Legacy Ottoman Hotel.  The building has domes on each corner similar to the Main Post Office building and has its own original hamam in the basement.
