The Asia side of Istanbul is the latest site for Radisson Blu’s increasing expansion at Turkey’s largest city. The Radisson Blu Conference & Spa Hotel, Istanbul Tuzla is expected to open in the third quarter of 2013.
The property features 249 rooms, is parent company Carlson Rezidor’s seventh hotel in Istanbul and is 3km from Sabiha Gokçen International Airport on the Asian side of the Bosporus.
“Turkey, with its mega city Istanbul, is a focus country for our group. We see a considerable growth potential for our core brands Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson, and aim to further expand our network together with established partners”, said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President and CEO of Rezidor.
Tuzla is home to Istanbul’s Formula 1 standard race track, the Turkish Naval Academy and several universities. The area is also popular amongst wealthy residents who have a second home outside the busy city centre of Istanbul. The surroundings of the hotel are characterized by smaller business parks and high-class retail outlets. Adjacent to the property, several luxury villas for residential use are being built. www.radissonblu.com
