Radisson Individuals enters Turkey with Istanbul debut
Royan Hotel Hagia Sophia Istanbul, a member of Radisson Individuals, is now open in historic Istanbul.
This Radisson Individuals opening introduces the fifth Radisson brand to Turkey and brings the group’s portfolio in this country to over 40 hotels that are open or under development.
A milestone for the brand
The newly opened Royan Hotel Hagia Sophia Istanbul, a member of Radisson Individuals, places guests in the prime area of Sultanahmet and within walking distance of sites including the Hagia Sophia.
Ramsay Rankoussi, vice president of development in Africa and Turkey at Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We are delighted to announce Radisson Hotel Group’s further expansion in Turkey with the signing and opening of our first Radisson Individuals hotel in the country.”
“Our newest brand is aimed at individual hotels with strong service scores and existing hotel identities that wish to remain independent or may be considering over time transitioning to one of the group’s core brands.”
“The hotel will benefit from Radisson Hotel Group’s global network and capitalise on the group’s strong presence in the country where we aim to reach over 50 hotels in operation and under development by 2025 but also to further cement our leadership in Istanbul. We thank our partners for their trust and support.”
A distinct hotel experience
The new hotel is home to 49 guest rooms and suites featuring amenities including in-room coffee and tea facilities, bathrobes and slippers and free high-speed Wi-Fi and offering views over the Marmara Sea or gardens. This accommodation is joined by the Lobby Lounge, which serves lunch and dinner in a relaxed space, and the Rooftop Restaurant offering an international culinary experience.
Yilmaz Yildirimlar, area senior vice president in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and Turkey at Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Despite all the challenges, Turkey has witnessed a constant growth and remains one of the most popular countries for tourism.”
“We are proud to welcome the first Radisson Individuals in Turkey which further diversifies our brand offerings across the market but also demonstrates the recognition of Radisson Hotel Group with an already established presence across Istanbul. With Royan Hotel Hagia Sophia Istanbul, a member of Radisson Individuals, our guests will benefit from a new exclusive offering in the centre of the old town.”
Fırat Gedikli, general manager of the hotel, added: “It is a great pleasure to announce this exciting project in collaboration with Radisson Hotel Group as we open the first Radisson Individuals in Turkey. Radisson Hotel Group has demonstrated a pragmatic approach to support the integration of our hotel into their network in a rapid time and we are looking forward to further expanding our partnership in the future while leveraging the Radisson name.”
“With its unrivalled location, distinct architectural and historical design, and Radisson Individuals branding, we are confident that the Royal Hotel Hagia Sophia Istanbul, a member of Radisson Individuals will be a great success.”
