The Hilton Istanbul Kozyatagi hotel is now open on the Asian side of Istanbul, offering guests magnificent views of the Marmara Sea.

With 250 standard rooms, 47 Executive rooms and 23 suites, those on the upper floors can enjoy the view through floor-to-ceiling windows while staying connected via wireless in-room Internet.

There’s also a 24-hour fitness centre, indoor swimming pool, spa and Hammam (Turkish bath), as well as 14 meeting rooms and two ballrooms.

On the rooftop is the Executive Lounge, along with Skylight Restaurant & Bar serving up cocktails and contemporary international cuisine.

You’ll find similar food with an Asian twist at The Brasserie, with a range of drinks also on the menu at the hotel's Atrium Lounge & Bar.

If you’ve managed to sneak in a little spare time, pay a visit to Speedcity – an entertainment area where visitors can experience the latest in video games and full motion control simulators, including indoor skiing and motorbike racing, among other virtual sports:

Design features integrated throughout the property pay homage to the fact that Istanbul is a melting pot of European and Asian culture.

Dragon motifs, handmade lighting and detailing in guest rooms give a distinctly Asian twist to the contemporary interiors, while most communal areas take on a more modern feel with textured wall art in abundance.

Hilton Istanbul Kozyatagi is located 28 kilometres from Sabiha Gokcen International Airport and 38 kilometres away from Ataturk International Airport.

It’s also just a short drive from both bridges linking to the European side of the city and within walking distance to the Marmaray Project – the railway connection under the Bosphorus Strait.

Gold and Diamond members of the Hilton HHonors program enjoy their usual perks such as free Internet access, daily breakfast and room upgrades, with all members having access to a HHonors priority desk at reception.

As a Category 5 hotel, a standard room can be had for 30,000-40,000 HHonors points – with the exact cost varying by season and demand.
