Guests entering the hotel will be ushered through an interactive art installation that mixes light, videos, motion sensors and mirrors; a striking juxtaposition of interior images of iconic Istanbul landmarks and Turkish traditions with modern design. Inspired by Ottoman art and treasures, the remixed W Lounge exudes an exotic vibe where guests can mix and mingle.
The refresh of W Istanbul also includes a new spacious and stylish Cool Corner Suite on the third floor. The one-bedroom retreat features a separate living room and spectacular Bosphorus views from the balcony. The Cool Corner Suite can also be combined with a Studio Suite and a Mega Room to create an exclusive area of more than 158sqm where guests can stretch out in style with friends and family while enjoying the spectacular river and city views.
W Istanbul has also introduced a new W Day Spa with two treatment rooms, a Turkish Bath, and hammam. Guests will be pampered by the relaxing sessions using signature Caudalie products, ideal after a full day of exploring Istanbul or in preparation for an exhilarating night out. The new FIT® state-of-the-art fitness centre on the third floor offers verdant views and a refreshing space bathed in natural daylight.
Located in the centre of the historic Akaretler Row Houses, an upscale neighborhood filled with restaurants, cafes, and design and art galleries, W Istanbul was the first W Hotel to open in Europe and has since been one of the hottest places in the city. Guests staying in one of the hotel’s 140 stylish guestrooms and suites can easily explore the authentic and local area of Besiktas and the chic shopping district of Nisantasi. The hotel is also a stone’s throw from Dolmabahce Palace, Istanbul Modern Art Museum and a short drive to the old city.
