Today, Forbes Travel Guide unveiled its annual Star Rating list, naming Raffles Istanbul as a new Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Recommended hotel. This is the first time Forbes inspectors rated Turkish hotels for the venerable hospitality industry award, and Raffles Istanbul is the only property in the country to receive a five-star designation. Raffles Istanbul will be showcased with all of the Star Rating recipients on ForbesTravelGuide.com.

Opened in Fall 2014, Raffles Istanbul is located at a stunning vantage point above the city with breathtaking views of the Bosphorus, Prince Islands and the city’s historic peninsula. The chic, design-focused property, located at the Zorlu Center where high fashion, performance and art converge, is a luxury oasis in the heart of Istanbul. The hotel offers 136 guestrooms, 49 suites and 66 residences as well as the acclaimed Raffles Spa, meetings and event space, two restaurants including the Pan-Asian Isokyo restaurant, the heritage Long Bar in a modern interpretation, lounges and the Raffles Patisserie.

“At Raffles Istanbul, we continuously strive to provide every guest with an unforgettable experience,” said Christian Hirt, General Manager. “It is an honor to be recognized as a Five-Star property, in the first year that Forbes Travel Guide traveled to Turkey, for our hospitality and effortless service. We are incredibly proud of our team for achieving this pinnacle of hospitality awards, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Rating.”

Raffles Istanbul is the latest addition to the luxury travel ratings that have been the gold standard in the hospitality industry since 1958.  Forbes Travel Guide is the only global rating system using highly trained inspectors to verify luxury hotels, restaurants and spas.

“We are delighted to celebrate the 2019 Star Rating winners, an outstanding collection of hotels, restaurants and spas that demonstrates a strong culture of service,” said Filip Boyen, Chief Executive Officer of Forbes Travel Guide.
