Raffles İstanbul, where the story continues

At the heart of the cutting-edge Zorlu Center, a modern-day bazaar where fashion, fine food, performance and the arts converge on the European shore in Beşiktaş, Raffles is an exhilarating fusion of virtuoso architecture, dazzling interiors, inspired food and deep luxury. The hotel looks above the Bosphorus, a stunning vantage point above the city.

Utterly contemporary, full of texture and distinctly Turkish, the hotel is embellished with a gorgeous collection of specially-commissioned artworks. It offers its guests 136 guestrooms and 49 suites – all spacious and filled with light, blending Turkish and contemporary design. Floor to ceiling windows lead to furnished private terraces and balconies, for lofty views over the Bosphorus and the city.

Two restaurants and lounges offer a culinary theatre of possibility, day and night: At “Rocca”, Mediterranean cuisine from Lebanon to Egypt, from Italy to Morocco, all to be shared, is the order of the day, all day. “Arola” by the Michelin-starred Spanish chef Sergi Arola, in service on the 6th floor terrace, Lounge 6 throughout summer, gives classic Spanish dishes a modern spin. In the striking lobby, Lavinia is the place to be seen. Lounge 6 on the 6th floor terrace of the hotel by the outdoor pool has eye-popping views over the city and the perfect place to spend summer evenings watching the Euro 2016 matches on large screen while enjoying the special match menus and shisha service…
