We made the right choice with Embassy Suites by Hilton for the hotel concept of Torun Center, which offers easy access to both sides of Istanbul, is located on Büyükdere Avenue, where many domestic and foreign companies have their headquarters, and at the intersection of social and cultural life. I believe that Embassy Suites by Hilton Torun Center, which overlooks Istanbul and the Bosphorus and is intertwined with the most modern square of the city, will meet the gap in this field at the highest standard at a time when the demand for long-term and comfortable accommodation is increasing." 

Aziz Torun; "Embassy Suites by Hilton, Torun Center will start welcoming guests in the summer of 2024". Torun announced that they are preparing to offer the residences on the upper floors of the hotel, ranging in size from 1+1 to 4+1, for sale in the fall.

Turkey is Hilton's fourth largest market in the world. With our Embassy Suites By Hilton brand, we want to make a successful entry into both Turkey and Europe with Torunlar REIC. Torun Center is a very valuable project that incorporates existing office, residential, retail and entertainment features. With Embassy Suites by Hilton, Torun Center will be able to offer more diversity and increase its value even more."
