2024’s Hottest New Hotels in Istanbul

One of the most visited cities in the world, Istanbul never loses its popularity among tourists thanks to its rich history, culture, and attractive tourist attractions.

As the city continues to welcome millions of travelers, new hotel investments rapidly bring fresh and luxurious new accommodation options to meet the growing demand.

Rather than updating our previous years’ article, we decided to publish new articles for every year. Here is the previous years’ Istanbul hotel openings.

When we search the topic on Google, we see that some websites publish some hotel names as they recently opened. When we search these so called new hotels in Istanbul, we found out that they are not newly opened but they are newly listed on hotel booking platforms such as When a hotel recently listed on booking platforms, it doesn’t make it a new hotel.

To ensure the accuracy of our information, we research websites, hotels’ social media pages, we contacted the hotels, and search news articles to verify that it is indeed a new hotel. We also encourage our readers to do their own research to confirm that the hotels they are interested in are truly new.
