The latest design hotel in Istanbul, Gezi Hotel Bosphorus, will soon unveil four new ‘Sky Suites’ with panoramic views of the Bosphorus. Each of the suites will feature Jacuzzi tubs and private balconies for you to take in the scenery of Istanbul.
Located in a thriving neighbourhood surrounding Taksim Square, the gently curved 17-storey zinc and titanium façade which houses Gezi Hotel Bosphorus, peers out over the Istanbul Strait, evoking a new spin on the modernist architectural styles of the 1940s and 50s.
Each of the hotel’s 56 rooms and 11 suites feature great views of either the Bosphorus, Taksim Gezi Park or the hotel’s own lush garden.
High-quality wood and leather furnishings provide a warm, cosy atmosphere amplified by a contemporary design ethos, fusing the rich colour blocking of Piet Mondrian with high-tech flourishes.
Each of the guestrooms is inspired by an element of one of Mondrian’s paintings, while luxurious materials soften the strong, linear forms typically associated with the Dutch painter.
The new Sky Suites are located on the rooftop and offer additional comforts, from fireplaces to 20 square metre terraces. Even the exterior of the building subtly mirrors the motif, with long, gridded windows jutting from the façade.
Acclaimed architect Sinan Kafadar restructured the building according to his signature fusion of timeless design with the latest green technology, particularly in regards to energy and water conservation, resulting in a hotel that is practically zero-emission.
In the hotel restaurant, G’nova, guests can enjoy panoramic views of the Bosphorus and savour the rich variety of Mediterranean cuisine, modern Turkish dishes and creative cocktails.
After a day exploring Istanbul’s mosques and baazars, unwind in the hotel spa and Turkish bath, with traditional water rituals and massage principles incorporated in the treatments.
