The 133-room Radisson Blu Golden Horn is the latest Istanbul hotel project to be announced in the growing bi-continental city. The city's fifth Radisson Blu is scheduled to debut in the first quarter of 2013, on the banks of the Golden Horn, the inlet where the Bosphorus River divides Istanbul. The new property will be in the upscale Pera neighborhood, alongside the Pera Palace Hotel, the city's oldest luxury hotel. An on-site restaurant is planned for the project, as well as more than 8,600 square feet of meeting space and an indoor pool. A rooftop bar and lounge promises impressive views of the city.
