Radisson Blu has opened a 193-room hotel in Istanbul, its ninth in the Turkish city.
Its name – Radisson Blu Hotel, Vadistanbul – comes from its location in an area in the north of the city currently undergoing industrial and residential regeneration. The hotel is near the business district of Maslak, opposite the Turk Telecom Arena, and is connected to Seyrantepe metro via a monorail.
It features an international all-day-dining restaurant as well as serving local produce and dishes at Vadi Bistro.
Amenities include a 1,000 sqm ballroom, more than 300 sqm of meeting rooms, a gym and a 2,330 sqm spa with a heated pool, Turkish bath, hammam and five treatment rooms.
Michel Stalport, Area Senior Vice President Eastern Europe, Russia and Turkey, said: “With this stunning property, we further strengthen our position as the leading international hotel group in Turkey.
“We’re immensely proud to add yet another state-of-the-art Radisson Blu property to the region and be part of the visionary Vadistanbul project – a joint venture initiative between Artas Insaat, Evyap and Invest Insaat that’s already recognised as one of Istanbul’s most prestigious developments.”
Meanwhile Radisson Hotels Group also announced the signing of a hotel in the Turkish city Bursa, scheduled to open towards the end of 2020. The 163-room property will be its first under the Radisson brand in Turkey.
It takes the group’s portfolio in the country to 25 hotels, with more than 4,600 rooms in operation and under development.
