Nettled in a quiet corner of Istanbul's fashionable Taksim Square neighbourhood, adjacent to Gezi Park, the Gezi Hotel Bosphorus is a small design led hotel. Situated within walking distance of restaurants, transportation, shopping, and sightseeing, the Gezi Hotel Bosphorus offers an excellent location, well-appointed modern rooms. It even comes with a list of green credentials and a private garden.
The acclaimed Turkish architect Sinan Kafadar restructured the striking zinc and titanium fronted building with his signature ability to fuse timeless design with up-to-date green technology. Inside, the contemporary, minimalist decor has personality and rooms benefit from the height of the 11-story building with stunning views. The high-quality wood and leather furnishings used throughout the hotel interior make for a warm and cosy atmosphere amplified by the contemporary design ethos fusing the rich colour-blocking of Piet Mondrian with high tech flourishes.
Each of the 56 rooms and 11 suites feature panoramic windows that offer sweeping views on the Bosphorus, Taksim Square, Gezi Park, or the hotel's garden in the heart of Istanbul. All feature comfortable beds complete with goose-down pillows and advanced technology. Bathrooms are clad in marble with a rain shower and Molton Brown bathroom toiletries.
Fiamma Restaurant & Bar is the hotel's Italian establishment that is managed in collaboration with Vittorio Sindoni, his latest venue after operating various restaurants in New York Cıty and Istanbul.
For further pampering, there's a basement-level wellness centre with a gym, small spa, hamman, and sauna.
