Largest hotel in Istanbul opens its doors

Istanbul’s largest hotel is now open for business. The Hilton Bomonti Hotel and Conference Centre was designed by GA Design and stretches over 34 storeys with 829 rooms and suites.

Additional facilities include two column-free ballrooms, state-of-the-art meeting rooms, numerous outdoor terraces, The Globe Restaurant with four live cooking stations, and a Cloud 34 cocktail bar on the 34th floor with views across Istanbul.

The Hilton brand has been operational in Turkey for almost 60 years and this latest addition is located on a prime site next to a major shopping and entertainment destination currently being created on a former Bomonti Beer Factory site.

Simon Vincent, President, EMEA, Hilton Worldwide said: "Hilton Istanbul Bomonti is a superb addition to the city's evolving skyline and what is a vibrant global destination. With its significant scale, the hotel supports Istanbul as a rapidly emerging international conference and events venue to rival locations such as London, Dubai and Prague."
