Divan Istanbul

Property Overview

The traditional flagship of Divan Group’s collection of fine hotels, Divan Istanbul offers travel connoisseurs a unique interpretation of luxury design and Ottoman hospitality. Carrying the signature of renowned architect Thierry Despont, acclaimed worldwide for his bold re-imagining of public spaces, such as the Getty Center in Manhattan, and private ones, such as the home of Bill Gates, Divan Istanbul brings the same innovative style and state of the art luxury to the heart of this ancient and exotic city.

Featuring elegantly appointed guestrooms and the warm, attentive service combining the best of East and West that is the hallmark of Divan Hotels, the completely rebuilt Divan Istanbul has an over fifty-year heritage yet is also one of Istanbul’s newest hotels. Location is just as important as design, and Divan Istanbul’s prime location in the heart of the city on a leafy boulevard leading to Taksim Square means all the unforgettable historical and cultural sites that define Istanbul, as well as its most important businesses and commercial addresses, are within minutes of the hotel. Adding comfort to convenience, the hotel features the luxury Puri Spa and the choice of three gourmet restaurants: Divan Lokanta, Divan Pub and Maromi.

Spaces designed for formal and informal gatherings meet the needs of business as well as leisure travellers: spacious meeting rooms, two foyers, the sleek Divan Bar and Divan Patisserie, featuring a sidewalk café are great spots to cut a deal, hold a meeting, or just relax and enjoy the  ambiance over a fine Turkish pastry or an expertly mixed cocktail. Despont and his long-time collaborator, master glassblower Robert DuGrenier, whose dramatic hand-blown chandeliers adorn the lobby, have captured a singular vision that blends opulence and refinement throughout the 191-room Divan Istanbul in a provocative homage to the best of historic Istanbul. Divan Istanbul is where luxury accommodations, bold design, and innovative cuisine meet in a uniquely refined setting.
