The new Raffles Istanbul: butler service and a heated heliport
The recently opened Raffles Istanbul offers one of the city's largest spas, a gourmet restaurant overseen by Michelin-star chef Sergi Arola and 24-hour butler service that is part of Raffles’ standard service concept.
The newest hotel of Raffles Hotels & Resorts is the seventh international hotel of this group, in which the famous Raffles Singapore sets the standard. The new Istanbul hotel is, as the group describes it, “a timeless fusion of inspired architecture, ravishing luxury, gastronomic innovation and serious cultural chic: an oasis of cool overlooking the most colourful and exciting city on earth.”
The new Raffles Istanbul offers its guests 132 guestrooms and 49 suites – all spacious and light, blending Turkish and contemporary design and offering everything the modern traveller demands. Rooms start at €600 per night.
The new hotel is located at the heart of the cutting-edge Zorlu Center, a modern-day bazaar where fashion, fine food and the arts converge on the European shore in Beşiktaş. The hotel overlooks the Bosphorus, the Prince Islands and the historic peninsula – a stunning vantage point above the city. Two intriguing details: the hotel offers a heated heliport and an open air rooftop movie theatre.
