Yatirimlari Ticaret A.Ş Enter Agreement to Open the 829-room
Hilton Istanbul Bomonti Hotel & Conference Center

Located in the Sisli District of Istanbul, Property will be Largest Hotel and Conference Center in Turkey


ISTANBUL, Turkey - Hilton Worldwide today announced the signing of a management agreement with IC Bomonti Uluslararasi Kongre Turizm Yatirimlari Ticaret A.Ş to open an upper upscale Hilton hotel and conference center in Istanbul's Sisli district.The property will be adjacent to the former Bomonti Beer Factory, an iconic building of significant heritage in the city center, which is currently undergoing restoration to become the focal point of a new visitor hub with extensive entertainment, dining and retail facilities; as well as a museum and arts center.

This latest Turkish hotel signing adds to the significant momentum achieved by Hilton Worldwide in Istanbul, which now features six hotels across four brands, including the historic Hilton Istanbul which opened its doors in 1955 and the luxury Conrad Istanbul which is currently undergoing an extensive programme of refurbishment.

"We are delighted to have signed a management agreement to open a landmark new Hilton Hotel and Conference Center in Istanbul," said Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe & Africa, Hilton Worldwide. "Hilton Istanbul Bomonti Hotel & Conference Center is set to be the largest hotel under development in the city by number of rooms and size of meeting space, providing Istanbul with a world-class conference facility which we expect will attract new international conference business to the city. Our pipeline in Turkey goes from strength to strength, with 41 hotels either trading or under development, and this latest announcement is testament to Hilton Worldwide's strong presence in a country we have been proudly operating in since 1955."

The hotel and conference center will be located in a striking newly built tower, spanning 35 floors and offering spectacular views across the European side to Asia. Located approximately three kilometres from Taksim Square, Hilton Istanbul Bomonti Hotel & Conference Center will be an ideal base for both corporate guests as well as the significant numbers of tourists visiting the city for its wealth of history, culture, art and entertainment.

Dave Horton, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, said, "Hilton has a wonderful history in Istanbul, having operated here for more than 57 years. This new Hilton will be a shining example of striking design and functionality, coupled with a world-class conference center which will attract travellers from across the world."

Featuring 829 bedrooms and suites, guests will be able to enjoy the upscale facilities of the executive lounge, as well as spa and fitness facilities including an indoor and outdoor swimming pool. A number of boutique stores will also feature in the hotel as well as iconic destination food and beverage options including an all day dining restaurant, lobby bar and spectacular roof top bar - set to become a destination for locals and guests alike. The highly regarded hospitality designer, GA Design of London, will be charged with providing and delivering the vision and design of the hotel's interior.

Serhat Çeçen, board member of IC Bomonti Uluslararasi Kongre Turizm Yatirimlari Ticaret A.Ş, said, "We are very excited to be spearheading the investment in this iconic property, which is set to become the largest landmark hotel in the center of Istanbul. Hilton Istanbul Bomonti Hotel & Conference Center, will be one of the biggest branded hotels in Europe and will be the jewel in the crown of our own hotel portfolio and I am delighted that we are partnering with Hilton Worldwide and their world renowned Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand to manage the hotel on our behalf. Hilton Worldwide has demonstrated a serious commitment and ability to make this spectacular project a great success in one of Europe's fastest growing and most exciting destinations."

Turkey is a strategic development market for Hilton Worldwide and the fast paced growth has seen multiple brand openings in the last few years, with new additions for growth brands including DoubleTree by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton. Hilton Worldwide recently opened its first dual branded property in Turkey, Hilton Bursa Hotel & Convention Center and Hampton by Hilton Bursa, as well as Hampton by Hilton Ordu marking the growing presence of its economy brand in regional locations.

Hilton Istanbul Kozyataği Conference Center & Spa will be reached directly from the major E5 motorway which links Istanbul with capital city Ankara. The site lies almost equidistant to both of Istanbul's major airports, Istanbul Ataturk International and Istanbul Sabiha Goken with the terminals 23km and 21km from the property respectively and both connected by the motorway. Further transport links will be provided by the new Kozyataği metro station which is within walking distance of the hotel, and forms part of the new Uskudar-Kartal line.
