Fairmont has opened a luxury hotel inside two 41-story towers high above the Bosphorus in Istanbul. Situated in the Mecidiyeköy business district, near Gayrettepe and Levent, the Fairmont Quasar Istanbul has 209 guest rooms and 40 Fairmont Gold rooms along with 64 branded residences. With 21,520 square feet of meeting and event space, the hotel caters to both a business and leisure crowd.

The Willow Stream Spa comes with a fully equipped fitness center, a yoga room, and an indoor pool with a retractable glass wall for the warmer months.
