Radisson Hotel Group has opened a new hotel in Istanbul, located near Taksim Square.

Radisson Hotel Istanbul, Harbiye has 90 rooms and suites, with superior and premium categories including sea-view balconies.

The hotel is close to historic and cultural sites including the Ataturk Cultural Centre, the Dolmabahce Palace and the recently opened Galataport Istanbul.

On-site facilities include the Turkuaz restaurant, offering Turkish and international cuisine, a spa with a Turkish bath, sauna and steam bath, and two meeting rooms accommodating up to 25 people.

Rooms, meanwhile, include free wifi, work desks and rain showers.

Yilmaz Yildirimlar, area senior vice president Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and Turkey at Radisson Hotel Group, said:

“We are excited to welcome another Radisson branded hotel in the heart of Istanbul. We remain strongly committed to cementing our leading position in Istanbul with both leisure and business destinations across the country. We have established clear objectives to reach over 50 hotels in operation and under development by 2023 and we are accelerating our growth accordingly.’’

Earlier this year Radisson added the first property under its independent hotel focused Radisson Individuals brand in Turkey – Royan Hotel Hagia Sophia Istanbul.
