Marriott Opens Renaissance Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel

Marriott International has opened its ninth hotel in Turkey, the Renaissance Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel, which is operating under a franchise agreement with Polat Holding A.S.

The high-rise hotel is located on the European side of Istanbul, in Besiktas, midway between the areas of Taksim and Levent. The hotel is close to Bosphorus’ main boat harbor and within easy reach of the city’s most popular attractions (think the Saint Sophia Museum, Sultanahmet Mosque and Topkapi Palace).

What we love: The Renaissance Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel has a rooftop bar with impressive city views (pictured), a lobby bar, bistro and all-day dining restaurant with outdoor terrace serving Mediterranean cuisine with Turkish specialties. For leisure and relaxation, there is a state-of-the-art fitness center including an indoor pool, sauna, steam room and Turkish bath.

The hotel is located at Barbaros Bulvari No: 145, Besiktas. For more information, visit
