In February, the newest project of the Peninsula hotel group – The Peninsula Istanbul – is scheduled to open in Istanbul. The group’s first hotel in Turkey, with a reported space cost of one billion dollars, will open in the most popular location on the Bosphorus. The first guests who booked a room at the hotel under the “special offer” will pay “only” 1,050 euros per night.
The Peninsula Hotels, a hotel chain that “started” back in 1928 in Hong Kong and specializes in luxury hotels, is thus opening its first hotel in Turkey, “as a result of the painstaking work that the brand attaches great importance to around the world.” It should be noted that in Europe the hotel of this group is open only in Paris, three more hotels operate in the USA, and six in Asian countries. The Peninsula Istanbul will be located in three renovated historic buildings on the Bosphorus’s shores- the buildings were built in the early 1900s. Tourists are promised “a view of the Historic Peninsula, flower gardens, and a connection between East and West.” In total, Peninsula Istanbul will offer tourists 177 rooms with an area of 40 m2 to spacious suites with a sea view.
Clement Kwok, chairman and managing director of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, which owns and operates Peninsula Hotels, said: “As an investor who has been in the business for many years, we have spent years choosing the best location for opening the Peninsula Hotel. Together with our esteemed partners Doğuş Group and Bilgili Holding, we are delighted to expand our global presence with the opening of The Peninsula Istanbul. We have spent a lot of time and effort restoring this beautiful house on the Bosphorus and look forward to welcoming our guests.”
Tourists were also informed that “exclusively before the opening” The Peninsula Istanbul presents a special offer of 1,050 euros per room, including tomorrow. In addition, the first tourists will be able to receive a gift voucher worth 100 euros for visits to restaurants, spas, and wellness services, and a free transfer from the airport for all booked suites.
