In order to meet the highest standards of health safety and countering the spread of the coronavirus infection COVID-19, in addition to government protocols, the Accor Hotels group, together with the inspection and certification company Bureau Veritas, have developed new standards that are being implemented at the Raffles Istanbul under the name ALLSafe. The policy covers all hotel cleaning protocols, as well as guest and staff relationships, to ensure maximum safety for all visitors to Raffles Istanbul.

Open in September 2014, Raffles Istanbul unveils a design inspired by ‘The Dream of Istanbul.” This was created by designers at HBA Atlanta (who designed all the guestrooms, Lobby, Lobby Lounge, Long Bar, Writer’s Bar, and Ballroom) and The Gallery HBA in London (who created the schemes for the Champagne Room and Raffles Spa.) The dramatic, rich interiors are the perfect fit for Istanbul’s most exciting new hotel, the embodiment of the new young face of an ancient city - a beacon above the Bosphorus and an oasis of calm and cool.
Working with specialist partner companies Canvas and Illuminate to create the hotel’s world class art collection and custom lighting respectively, HBA’s designs re-interpret Turkish history in a new and modern way. At the heart of the new Zorlu Center – a next generation bazaar where fashion, fine food, performance and art converge. The 185-room hotel features two swimming pools with one on a magnificent rooftop pool on the 6th floor, with sweeping views of the city and one within the signature Raffles Spa and a signature Asian restaurant Isokyo, by Executive Chef Clinton Cooper. The hotel also features Raffles’ legendary 24-hour butler service, catering to every need and bringing a new level of luxury and service to Istanbul.
