The Ritz-Carlton Istanbul Reimagined

Madison Nagle | July 22, 2019 | Real Estate

A modern landmark in the ancient city, The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul proves itself as the leading contemporary urban oasis. This new and redesigned hotel aims to bring a sense of history and culture to valued guests while maintaining the upmost genuine hospitality and Turkish warmth.


Capturing the essence of Istanbul while bringing a bold new energy to the city, the building’s sky-scraper proportions have reinterpreted emblems of the alluring beauty native to the prehistoric metropolis. Ideally located near historic sites, a thriving business scene and designer shopping, the hotel has quickly become renowned for its enduring ambiance.

In an attempt to design a hotel harmonious to the city and its impressive historical background, architects and designers found inspiration from the city itself. The hotel’s gold and copper color palette inspired by the sunrise and sunset along with the cobalt blue china works and velvet and silk fabrics, imperial signatures of the Ottoman Empire, work together to create an impeccable atmosphere that exhibits the Turkish culture. There is also an homage to Selim III, Sultan of the Ottoman Empire with glazed replica artworks of ancient coins.


With breath-taking views across the Bosphorus and unmatched service enhancing every stay, it’s no surprise celebrities and A-listers have flocked to the new Ritz Carlton location. The hotel recently hosted American jazz pianist Chick Corea, actress Meghan Pormer and Victoria Secret model Elsa Hosk.

An attractive array of 243 guest rooms, including 23 suites and 57 club rooms, the Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul has taken luxury to the next level. From its farm-to-table Mediterranean dishes that celebrate local, seasonal ingredients to its holistic moments of pampering at the Spa Soul, this hotel has it all. Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway or planning a summer abroad, this is the place to stay. For bookings visit
