Fairmont Quasar Istanbul scoops national, regional awards

Rising above the slopes of the Bosphorus, Fairmont Quasar Istanbul opened in January this year. The hotel has recently won the “Best City Hotel Turkey” and “Best City Hotel Europe” awards while achieving the International Five-Star Hotel Standard.
The International Hotel Awards is a global competition that determines the finest hotels and hospitality companies in the world. A gala dinner and presentation took place on Oct. 26, where the winners of the awards were announced.
The Fairmont Quasar Istanbul, as the Europe regional winner in the “Best City Hotel” category, serves as a hub in the heart of Istanbul for the well-traveled.
“A new icon for the vibrant Mecidiyeköy district, Fairmont Quasar sits at a crossroads in Istanbul — where eclectic neighborhood bazaars and colorful side streets meet modern shopping centers and commercial properties,” a press release said. “Set on the site of the 1930’s Robert Mallet Stevens’ designed Art Deco liquor factory, Fairmont Quasar Istanbul, with its 209 rooms, various culinary venues, art collection in the hotel and Willow Stream Spa, blends a sense of urban culture and industrial flair with the city’s storied traditions and a strong sense of place.”
Hundreds of entries from across Europe were scrutinized by the judging committee, which is chaired by Viscount John Thurso, as well as over 50 global experts. Stuart Shield, president of the International Hotel Awards, and Thurso presented the award to Kai Winkler, general manager of Fairmont Quasar Istanbul.
