Unlocking the Door to the City
Istanbul is one of Europe’s most exciting cities, with incredible shopping, a vibrant art scene and lively nightlife. The Bentley Hotel’s curated list of city tips gives guests an insider perspective. How about dancing at Reina, one of the hottest clubs frequented by celebrities, paying a visit to Turkey’s premier department store Beymen, or dining at Aşşk Kahve, a favorite among locals? Additionally, the city will play host to an array of events in the coming year, such as the International Istanbul Fashion Fair in February, showcasing designs of budding talent from Turkey, the Art Bosphorus, a fair featuring contemporary works by local and global artists, and the Istanbul International Gastronomy Festival, where chefs from around the world compete against the top Turkish cooks. Experience Istanbul’s pulsating heart during the day, and relax in a sanctuary of cool at night.
A Fresh Face
With an oriental spin on Milanese design, be soothed by clean lines and subtle colors. The Bentley Hotel is representative of the city’s unique location between Europe and Asia, and the refurbishment has given the hotel a new ambiance while retaining the cool, minimalist appeal achieved by Lissoni and Canesi’s design. As part of the renovation, each room has been given a fresh look, including a new twin-bed option, perfect for friends visiting for a weekend trip to explore all the city has to offer. In contrast to the jumbled, pulsating vibe of Istanbul, the pale red, beige, green and grey hues employed throughout the hotel establish a transparent, light-flooded retreat. The wide windows in each of the guestrooms let the warmth of daylight flood them, adding depth to the interiors and allowing guests to feel the vitality of the city outside.
As part of the anniversary celebrations, guests are invited to experience the best of Bentley Hotel with specials such as a guaranteed upgrade, savings for the early bird and lastly, something even for the shopaholics. Look out for the special offers when booking.
Rates start at EUR 200.
