W Istanbul Hotel Built at the Junction of Times and Continents

News Surrounded by boutiques and upscale residences, W Istanbul hotel has embellished the beautiful Ottoman-style Row Houses real estate complex, the largest community object ever built in Turkey.

W Hotels Worldwide, a rapidly growing world hotel brand, has added one more gem to his European portfolio. A gleaming tower surrounded by gilded domes and minarets has appeared right in the middle of a melting pot of cultures and in Istanbul’s business district. This is where Europe meets Asia and antique castles blend with top-rate modern style buildings and the voice of the past sings to high fashion’s ever-quickening beat.

W Istanbul features 136 luxury guestrooms, including 29 suits, exclusive W Living Room, kitchen and original spa center. The hotel was built as part of Akaretler Row Houses restoration project in the prestigious Beshiktash district, renowned for its vibrant nightlife. This historic complex was erected in the 1870s on Sultan Abdul Aziz’s order. The complex became an urban architecture template showcasing neoclassic, early baroque and rococo elements and symbolizing a transition from traditional culture to modernity.
