- Last update on June 24, 2021

No Quarantine Requirement

Turkey accepts tourists from almost every country of the world without any quarantine requirement. On the other hand travellers from several countries must submit negative PCR test results obtained within the last 72 hours before their departure.

Face Masks

Wearing a face mask in all public spaces including on the street is obligatory in Istanbul. For violations there is a hardly applied penalty of TL 900 (~85 Euros). Face masks are available on your request at the Front Desk.

Night and Sunday Curfews for Local Residents (but not for Tourists) -in effect until June 30

During the period ending on June 30, for local residents in Turkey there are a night curfew after 10 pm during six days of the week and a full-day curfew on Sundays. This regulation concerns only the local population and tourists are exempted from this rule. During the curfew periods tourists can freely go out and enjoy their time off in the streets of an unusually empty Istanbul. Taxis and public transport continue working as before; museums stay open on Sundays. According to the announcement made on June 21, all restrictions will be lifted on July 1.

Restaurant Working Hour Restrictions until June 30

Until June 30 restaurants and cafes in Istanbul will be open every day (except Sundays) until 9 pm; though in the touristic area around our hotel some restaurants stay open until midnight including on Sundays. After 9 pm and on Sundays one can order food online and let them be delivered to the hotel without a time restriction. In our hotel we are well-prepared to this new situation and inform our guests about the closing hours of individual restaurants and also asist them in ordering meal from selected restaurants to serve them in our dining hall or in their rooms. According to the announcement made on June 21, time restrictions will be lifted completely on July 1.

Vaccination Campaign

Turkey started its vaccination campaign in January. Until today 37% of the population have received at least one dose of vaccine and 18% of them the two doses. In our hotel all staff have been vaccinated against Covid-19.

Covid-19 Test in the Hotel

At both Istanbul airports passengers flying to several countries are required to come up with the negative result of a Covid-19 PCR test made during the last 48 hours before their flight. Many hospitals and laboratories in Istanbul do these tests on demand. For the convenience of our guests we cooperate with a laboratory which sends a representative to our hotel upon appointment to take the sample for the test. The price is TL 350 (~33 Euros); the result is obtained within 24 hours.

Safe Accommodation

During this period of uncertainty we take the utmost care to ensure every stay with us is safe, clean and comfortable and take all the necessary precautions concerning hygiene and social distancing. In this respect our hotel has entitled to receive the 'Safe Tourism Certificate' issued by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture. The certificate confirms our compliance with all the appropriate health and hygiene regulations and it is renewed every month after a regular inspection. All staff in our hotel are vaccinated against Covid-19.
