10 Karakoy Hotel, Istanbul

Turkey’s tourism continues to heat up, with Istanbul attracting travelers from all over the globe, and the hotel scene is red-hot. The latest to enter the fray is Morgans Hotel Group, which will open 10 Karaköy on November 15, 2014. Part of the Originals collection, 10 Karaköy will join the likes of the Sanderson in London, the Shore Club in South Beach, and Morgans and the Royalton in New York.

The hotel’s name pays homage to the vibrant district where it’s located on the European side of the Bosphorus. (10 Karaköy is just a few minutes away from both historic Sultanahmet and Beyoglu). Award-winning architect Sinan Kafadar was enlisted to work on the project.
