The 136-room Mövenpick Hotel Istanbul Golden Horn, which opened in March 2015, is located on Istanbul’s Golden Horn peninsula, just 10 minutes away from the Old City’s famous historic highlights.
With an exterior by Loft Architects and interiors by renowned designer Sinan Kafadar from the Metex Design Group, the new hotel’s décor evokes the ways in which the Golden Horn estuary has informed Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman history through naval motifs, such as compass designs and interlinking chains, wave wood panelling, the soft application of watery blues, a generous use of white marble, black and white harbour photographs and historical maps. Bold symmetrical patterned carpeting contrasts with the clean lines and subtle tones of contemporary furniture in the hotel’s 26-sqm to 32-sqm rooms and features such as the curvaceous panelling of the spa and the wooden swirls of the restaurant ceiling create dramatic focal points.
All rooms, including the hotel’s 7 suites, enjoy panoramic views of the city or the historic waterfront, 40-inch flat-screen televisions with satellite, free WiFi, workstations, laptop-friendly safes as well as tea and coffee-making facilities. The private balconies of the hotel’s Premium rooms are perfect for the alfresco pleasure of peninsula sunsets, while the Golden Horn suite offers the added indulgence of a Jacuzzi on one of its two balconies.
These views can also be savoured at the Pruva Swiss Grill Restaurant that features an open show kitchen, a 20-seat private dining room, a terrace for up to 90, interior seating for 146 and a wide range of innovative Mediterranean cuisine as well as Swiss and Turkish specialities. Meanwhile, at the Lobby Lounge and Bar, guests can enjoy refreshing drinks, mouth-watering snacks and evening cocktails.
The hotel has six meeting rooms of 23 to 120 sqm and the divisible 380-sqm Golden Horn Ballroom that can accommodate up to 440 guests. Sophisticated system technology in the conference rooms and ballroom allows all lights, sound and video to be controlled by the swipe of an iPad.
For those who need refuge from a busy day, the hotel also features the Serenity Wellness Centre with a state-of-the-art fitness centre, Turkish Hammam, saunas, a steam room, relaxation zone and massage rooms.
