bora-goymenThe 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. The hotel is officially opening on February 1st, 2013.
