Turkey: Ascott has opened the 165-unit Somerset Maslak Istanbul, its first property in Turkey.

The serviced residence is part of the city's new Maslak 1453 mixed-use scheme, which is described as the largest lifestyle development complex in Europe, spanning more than two million square metres.

The property is located in Istanbul's commercial hub, home to multinational corporations, such as Ericsson, Cisco and Ford as well as educational institutions, including Nisantasi University and the historic Istanbul Technical University.

"We are excited to open Ascott's first serviced residence in one of the world's most vibrant and dynamic cities, Istanbul. Visitors can now experience Ascott's signature hospitality service that has already become a hallmark of our properties in more than 120 cities across 31 countries," said Ascott country general manager, Middle East and Turkey, Vincent Miccolis.

He continued: "Located within the Maslak district in Istanbul, Somerset Maslak Istanbul is at the heart of a cosmopolitan hub that is a major centre for business and containing many of Istanbul's most appealing landmarks, so we expect to attract a varied mix of leisure and business travellers."

Somerset Maslak Istanbul features a breakfast room, gymnasium, residents' lounge, swimming pool and children's playroom. Residents can select from studios up to four-bedroom apartments; all with a fully-equipped kitchen and separate living and dining areas. The property features a 24-hour reception, daily housekeeping service, WiFi, valet parking, babysitting services, as well as round-the-clock security with electronic key card access.
