Rotana has inaugurated Centro WestSide and WestSide Arjaan by Rotana in Istanbul, Turkey, in partnership with real estate development company, Mar Yapı.
The two new properties are located on the popular Basin Express road in the Güneşli neighbourhood of Istanbul. Guests will be able to enjoy seamless access to key landmarks, including Istanbul Atatürk Airport, business plazas, shopping malls and exhibition and convention centres.
The triangular building housing the hotels was designed by the award-winning architecture firm, Suyabatmaz Demirel. The building scooped the Future Project Award in 2013 at the MIPIM Real Estate Exhibition in Cannes, France.
Chairman, Rotana, Nasser Al Nowais declared: “We are delighted to open these two new properties, which join our two existing hotels in Istanbul to double Rotana’s Turkish presence and increase our global room count to 16,466. Our smart and stylish Centro brand provides an affordable lifestyle hotel concept, whereas WestSide Arjaan by Rotana offers guests a home away from home with its elegant and comfortable hotel serviced apartments. By opening these properties side by side, we are catering to the needs of both business and leisure travellers, whilst servicing the increasing demand for high-quality accommodation in Istanbul.”
