Sofitel Hotels & Resorts has opened its first hotel in Turkey, Sofitel Istanbul Taksim.

The hotel officially opened in early November in Taksim Square, known as the heart of modern Istanbul.

The hotel was developed in collaboration with Turkey-based Tuna Group.

“We are excited to introduce the Sofitel brand to Turkey, a market where we want to drive further growth over the next three to five years,” said Alexis Delaroff, COO of Accor New East Europe.

“We believe that the addition of new luxury product into the city will serve as a key tourism driver, enticing travelers to explore one of Turkey’s most dynamic cities, while also delighting locals as a sophisticated and stylish destination for dining and entertainment.”
