Sanasaryan Han Istanbul Luxury Hotel

Sanasaryan Han, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Istanbul Opened

In the heart of Istanbul’s historical peninsula, Sanasaryan Han, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Istanbul, opens its doors, enriching Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of over 30 extraordinary hotel brands.

Originally slated for a January 2024 debut, the hotel welcomed its first guests in March 2024. Situated at the crossroads of East and West, the hotel offers guests unique experiences immersed in Istanbul’s captivating history.

Constructed in 1895, the neo-classical Sanasaryan Han blends Istanbul’s grandeur with its cultural heritage. Designed by Ottoman architect Hovsep Aznavur and built by Migirdiç Sanasaryan, it’s within walking distance of cultural landmarks like the Egyptian Bazaar and Sultanahmet Mosque.

The hotel’s glass-roofed atrium, inspired by Istanbul’s springtime Judas trees, creates a unique atmosphere with a glass light installation reminiscent of fireflies. The curated library space and ‘The Library Bar’ draw inspiration from the largest library of Sanasaryan College, featuring handmade ceramic replicas of diplomas and contemporary art installations.
