New Movenpick Hotel Opens in Ankara, Turkey


Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of the 176-room Mövenpick Hotel Ankara, a new contemporary hotel in the Turkish capital’s fast-developing Söğütözü business district.

Close to the city’s international airport, the district is rapidly becoming a business base for global companies such as EON, BP and Oracle as well as home to Turkish government ministries, cutting edge medical facilities, ambitious media companies and luxurious residential developments. The hotel is also close to the 155-store Armada Shopping Mall, a winner of the “Best Shopping Mall of the Year” voted by the International Council of Shopping Centres.

The design of the hotel reflects the curved shape of Turkey’s  Nazar Boncuğu – the eye-shaped amulet traditionally worn to ward off evil – with a 12-story central atrium and glass ceiling that floods the hotel with natural light. There are also motifs and materials that reference traditional influences from the Turkish marble swirling around the spacious floors of public areas to the enormous lobby chandelier created from hundreds of handmade crystal balls.

Top digs include the Executive Floors on the 11th and 12th floors, which offer exclusive access to an Executive Lounge, terrace, meeting room, complimentary snacks and drinks and private check in.

The flagship restaurant at the hotel is Plus, which serves a range of Turkish culinary classics and Mediterranean favorites as well as Mövenpick Swiss signature dishes. Local specialities include in-house dry-aged beef, Turkish cheeses, “sujuc” spicy sausage and a delicious variety of Turkish vintages.

The Mövenpick Hotel Ankara is located at Beştepeler Mah. Yaşam Cad. No:1, Sogutozu, Yenimahalle, Ankara. For more information, visit
