Movenpick Hotel Istanbul, Turkey


Meet the Winner

The Mövenpick Hotel Istanbul has a well-deserved reputation for guest satisfaction based on personal attention and service that exceeds guests’ expectations, enhanced by the latest in-room and meeting and event technology and, of course, the award-winning cuisine.

Being voted Europe’s Leading City Hotel is a great honour for me and my team at the Mövenpick Hotel Istanbul, but it does not come as a surprise, because this prestigious award was won on the basis of years of dedication, commitment to service and ability to make simple things extraordinary all the time and every time. We are committed to continuous improvement and always setting our sights higher both on top quality services and latest technology. Our other hotels in Turkey the Mövenpick Hotel Izmir and the Mövenpick Hotel Ankara, which will open in spring 2011, will follow the same philosophy.

The Mövenpick Hotel Istanbul is perfectly located at the very heart of Istanbul’s both modern commercial and fashionable district within close proximity to chic shopping malls. The 249 rooms and suites in contemporary design are all entirely adapted to the needs of business and leisure travellers. Mövenpick Hotel Istanbul also satisfies the very need of any conferences, conventions and banquets, with multifunctional premises and state-of-the-art technical facilities. Guests can relax at the hotel’s own Wellness Centre with fitness centre, sauna, whirlpool, indoor pool and massages. Culinary excellence is served at the AzzuR Restaurant, which has become a trendsetter in the vibrant metropolis of Istanbul. Snacks and drinks are available at the BarAdoX and the ever popular Skyline Lounge with its panoramic view of the city.
