The hotel is destined to benefit from its enviable location close to Istanbul International Financial Centre (IIFC), which is set to become one of the world's top financial centers," said Mr Ahmet Keceli, Chairman of Pusula Ticari Yatirim ve Otelcilik.

Located in the middle of a vibrant business district, the hotel is equally well suited to enjoy iconic Istanbul attractions like the Bosphorus Bridge, Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, Istinye Park, Meydan shopping center and the best of Turkish hospitality.
