Country overview: 40 new upscale hotels coming to Turkey [Infographic]

by | 02 Oct 2021 | Hotel Projects, Projects

A look inside the TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database shows that Turkey’s hotel market is growing steadily, helped by a dominant showing from its largest city, Istanbul.

Over the next few years, 40 properties with 7,249 rooms will open across the country, according to our researchers. We take a closer look at these upcoming launches and highlight the ones you should keep an eye on.

Hotel openings in Turkey

In the last quarter of 2021, 11 more hotels with 1,435 rooms will launch in Turkey.

2022 will also be a busy year, with 14 openings and 2,732 new rooms pencilled in for completion. For 2023, another eight projects with 1,814 keys are in the pipeline, while seven schemes and 1,268 rooms have been earmarked for 2024 and beyond.

In addition, 22 of the 40 projects we’re tracking are targeting the five-star category, with the remainder focusing on the four-star market.

Key urban growth markets in Turkey

The economic powerhouse of Istanbul will get 13 new hotels in total, adding 2,709 rooms to the city’s offering.

Elsewhere, Bodrum, an important port city and seaside tourist destination, has four new hotels and 373 rooms in the pipeline. And the capital Ankara will see three properties launch, bringing 657 additional keys into play.

Noteworthy hotel openings coming up in Istanbul

Radisson Hotel Apartments Delta Istanbul Esenyurt is likely to be the first of our highlighted properties to open. Scheduled for a Q3 2022 debut, this 240-room scheme forms part of Wish Istanbul, a two-tower, mixed-use, real estate development. The apartment hotel tower will feature a range of amenities, including an all-day-dining restaurant, lobby lounge, pool bar and grill and spa, alongside nearly 2,200 sq m of function space.

Meanwhile, Citadines Nivo Istanbul is due to begin welcoming guests in Q4 2022. Set on Kanal Istanbul at the intersection of the city’s main traffic arteries, this hotel will offer comfortable accommodation near key business districts and leisure attractions, while Istanbul Ataturk International Airport is only a 30-minute metro ride away. Travellers staying in one of the 150 serviced residences here will have access to a residents’ lounge and onsite gym.

Last but not least, in early 2023, the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Etiler will open in a three-tower development in one of Istanbul’s most exclusive neighbourhoods. An impressive 409 guestrooms, suites and serviced apartments will occupy one of the three towers, while a Residences at Mandarin Oriental scheme will take up the other two. The hotel will have three restaurants and bars, a spa and a fitness centre, and the residences will feature top-notch facilities to complement their stunning city views.
