Istanbul Tops Turkish Cities with Hotel Reservations
According to the report published by the Istanbul Directorate of Culture and Tourism, Istanbul ranked first among Turkish states in the last five years, with Istanbul reporting a record number of hotel reservations attracting 5.5 million foreign tourists.
According to the report, the largest number of tourists who visited Istanbul was from countries on three different continents, proof of the diversity of tourism potential in Istanbul. This contributed significantly to the revitalization of hotel reservations, as the city has thousands of hotels spread over the Old City and modern neighbourhoods.
"Istanbul's leadership in receiving the largest number of foreigners in the last five years is a golden opportunity for us to introduce the business and hotel services of our foreign guests in the leading city where we operate," said Emrullah Akcakaya, General Manager of Dedeman Hotel. He also stressed that these figures are gratifying and that this growth will positively impact the Turkish economy and hotel reservations.
