Holiday Inn Kayseri – Düvenönü will be Ali Sert Otel Tur. Ins. San. Tic. LTD’s first hotel developed alongside IHG. Occupying a prime location in Kayseri in Turkey, the hotel will feature 161 deluxe guest rooms and six meeting rooms, a sporting gym and three treatment rooms, a rooftop bar and luxury lounge, offering stunning panoramic views of the city centre.

Holiday Inn’s signature ‘Open Lobby’ takes a more unique approach by combining the front desk, restaurant, bar, lounge area and business centre into one, cohesive space emitting a more contemporary feel. The design has been established on the understanding of how people use space at home. Holiday Inn Kayseri – Düvenönü is located a short distance from some of the city’s most cultural and historical attractions, including the Archaeological Museum. Although there are meeting facilities onsite, there are also a large number of offices within walking distance.

The venue is also well connected by train, and is scheduled to open in early 2016. Holiday Inn boasts 3,500 hotels globally. From June 2014, 280 Holiday Inn Hotels were recorded in Europe, with a further 36 in development. IHG houses nine brands in nearly 100 countries, boasting a diverse range of hotels suited to overnight getaways and business trips, amongst others.

Yalin Yaltiraki, Director of Development at IHG (Turkey), commented: “Holiday Inn Kayseri – Düvenönü is well positioned to offer quality accommodation at a reasonable price to business clientele and tourists.” Ali Sert, Owner of Ali Sert Otel Tur. Ins. San. Tic. LTD, commented: “We’re very excited to be developing our first hotel with IHG.”

The Holiday Inn brand has a great reputation in the industry and this hotel will offer guests a comfortable night’s stay in modern surroundings in Kayseri.” Also in August, it was revealed by IHG that more than 10,000 travellers across 13 countries worldwide consider the smartphone a ‘must-have’ item for a summer holiday. New research revealed that two-thirds of Brits turn to technology to avoid getting lost, with smartphones now taking preference over the traditional map.

Technology is also fast replacing the postcard, with 67% preferring to text friends, with another 28% using Skype. For more information visit www.ihg.com
