    The connecting stylish hotels located on Basin Express road feature 305 luxurious rooms, suites and apartments to lift the company’s total inventory in Turkey to 578 keys…

    Two hotels by Rotana, Centro WestSide and WestSide Arjaan, have opened and mark the firm’s arrival in the European side of Turkey.

    Situated on the popular Basin Express road in the Güneşli neighbourhood of Istanbul, the contemporary properties are in close proximity to key landmarks in the city, including Istanbul Atatürk Airport.

    The building which shelters the two hotels has been designed by  the award-winning architecture firm Suyabatmaz Demirehe. Its iconic triangular concept won the Future Project Award in 2013 at the famous MIPIM Real Estate Exhibition in Cannes, France.

    “We are delighted to open these two new properties, which join our two existing hotels in Istanbul to double Rotana’s Turkish presence and increase our global room count to 16,466,” said Chairman of Rotana Nasser Al Nowais. “Our smart and stylish Centro brand provides an affordable lifestyle hotel concept, whereas WestSide Arjaan by Rotana offers guests a home away from home with its elegant and comfortable hotel serviced apartments.”

    Offering affordable luxury and effortless comfort, Centro WestSide features 152 rooms and suites. WestSide Arjaan by Rotana offers 153 fully-furnished one and two-bedroom serviced hotel apartments for cosy living.

    Opening a new world of dining, recreation and entertainment in Istanbul, the two connecting hotels boast three outstanding dining outlets, with each offering attractive outdoor seating areas that make the most of the city’s pleasant Mediterranean climate.

    Guests staying at the hotels can benefit from the access to Bodylines Fitness & Wellness Club which includes a modern gym and large indoor swimming pool with stunning city views. A Jacuzzi, sauna, steam and three treatment rooms are also available at Centro WestSide and WestSide Arjaan by Rotana for guests to relax and unwind.

    The hotels feature a business corner, which include five meeting rooms and a hall, all equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment to suit a wide range of occasions.

    With its expanding tourism offering, Turkey has become a destination of choice for travellers from around the world. In the first two months of 2018 alone, the country welcomed three million foreign visitors and is projected to receive a record of 40 million tourists and over $30 billion in tourism revenue this year.
