Murat CevheriogluMurat Cevherioglu moved to Istanbul from Antalya after working for 3 years as the Director of Sales at Hillside Su Hotel.

Mr. Cevherioglu has been appointed to The Grand Tarabya as Director of Sales & Marketing.

The Grand Tarabya Hotel is an historic hotel of Istanbul by the Bosphorus. Bayraktarlar Holding, which purchased the hotel, offers one of Istanbul’s best panoramic views of the Bosphorus.

The location where this work is being done was home to the Tokatlayan Hotel, the city’s second biggest hotel in the 19th century after the Pera Palace and one of Istanbul’s first tourism buildings. A family with Armenian heritage owned the hotel before it was destroyed in a fire of unknown origin in 1954. The State Retirement Fund constructed the Büyük Tarabya Hotel in its place in 1966.

After the purchase by Bayraktarlar Holding, the building went under restoration and construction is currently continuing. According to rumors, the hotel will be opened in 2012.
