yoo Hotels opened the doors of its first yoo2 hotel in January of this year. yoo2 Taksim Square is an innovative new offering to the market for design-led travellers seeking original experiences.

"We are excited to launch the first yoo2 hotel in Istanbul, a vibrant city rich in culture and heritage," commented Marco Nijhof, CEO of yoo Hotels. "yoo2 Taksim Square appeals to those interested in both design and modern lifestyle, looking for a great stay and a sense of local culture, whether travelling for business or leisure."

yoo2 is an innovative departure from the traditions of its sister-brand yoo, a global design brand , who's entire ethos is about creating extraordinary living spaces, and positions itself as a playful and vibrant mix of creative design that is locally tuned for a global trendsetting crowd. Visitors who stay with yoo2 are fashion-conscious and lead the way in cultural change and creativity.

From the dramatic entrance lobby to the clever use of backdrops in the public spaces that marry with intrigue, imaginative design and dedicated attention to detail make yoo2 a home-from-home. Here, carefully curated design and innovative technology are combined with seamless guest service, offering a remarkable visitor-experience for guests staying in one of the 59 rooms and suites.
