The newly opened Hilton Mall of Istanbul is the latest addition to Hilton Worldwide’s impressive portfolio of more than 60 hotels across Turkey.
Hilton Mall of Istanbul has started to welcome guests through its doors. We find out more about this ambitious scheme.
World-class luxury with Hilton in Istanbul
Located within the Mall of Istanbul complex, the country’s largest retail and entertainment centre, this project bears the distinction of being one of the closest five-star venues to Istanbul’s new airport. It also benefits from direct access to the eagerly awaited Masko station on the Ataköy-İkitelli Metro line, which opens next year.
The property’s owned by Torunlar REIC and operated by its subsidiary TRN Hotel Management Company, under the management consultancy of Access Hospitality, Development & Consulting.
Aziz Torun, chairman of Torunlar REIC, said: “During the pandemic that has affected the whole world, we, as Torunlar REIC, completed our hotel investment and started to host guests at Hilton Mall of Istanbul with the belief that we will soon overcome these difficult days.
“Our hotel, which offers both Mall of Istanbul’s international appeal, as well as Hilton’s upper-upscale service standards, will be a world-class project with outstanding performance. Our aim is that Hilton Mall of Istanbul will significantly contribute to Istanbul’s flourishing business, culture, health and education sectors and accelerate shopping tourism due to its proximity to Istanbul Airport, easy access from all around the city and extensive conference facilities.”
