Commanding awe-inspiring views of the Bosphorus and directly positioned on the steps of leafy Gezi Park, yoo2 Taksim Square is the latest in a steady stream of innovative cultural outposts surfacing in the Turkish capital.
The hotel combines carefully curated design and innovative technology throughout. All 59 guest rooms and suites feature fine fabrics and contemporary furniture for a luxurious and comfortable guest experience. Locally-inspired details – including glass separators engraved with historical scenes – capture the spirit of Istanbul as a cultural hub.
In a clear nod to sustainability, innovative and recycled materials – including walnut tree casings and natural stone floors – have been used throughout the public areas and rooms.
The hotel restaurant is open all day and night, serving traditional and modern Turkish menus, as well as international dishes, using locally-sourced produce.
Marco Nijhof, CEO of yoo Hotels, says: “We are excited to launch the first yoo2 hotel in Istanbul, a vibrant city rich in culture and heritage. yoo2 Taksim Square appeals to those interested in both design and modern lifestyle, looking for a great stay and a sense of local culture, whether travelling for business or leisure.”
