One of the hotel suites at the Hilton Bursa Convention Centre and Spa. The hotel offers a luxurious stay in one of the world's most fascinating cities

The stunning Hilton Bursa is located in the Turkish city of Bursa, resting in the intersection between the hubs of Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir

Located in the northwestern corner of Turkey, Bursa is the country’s fourth-largest city, with a population of nearly three million. While often celebrated as one of Turkey’s most industrialised and culturally charged metropolitan centres, Bursa is also referred to as ‘Yeşil Bursa’ – meaning ‘green Bursa’ – as a nod towards the beautiful parks and gardens that are scattered throughout its urban network. Vast forests and the towering Mount Uludağ provide an idyllic backdrop for this most diverse of cities.

Hilton Bursa’s stunning interior design reflects the rich historical heritage of the fascinating city in which it is situated

Mausoleums of early Ottoman sultans are situated throughout the city, with numerous edifices that were built throughout the Ottoman period comprising the city’s main historical landmarks. The city’s thermal baths, surrounding fertile plain and its selection of museums – most notably its renowned museum of archaeology – are all attractions that continue to draw in visitors, both from across Turkey and the rest of the globe.

Award-winning luxury
Located within the very heart of this diverse and vibrant city is the Hilton Bursa Convention Centre and Spa.

In recent years it has also won a string of industry awards, including being named the best-managed city hotel by the Turkish Association of Professional Hotel Managers (POYD). The Hilton Bursa was the first hotel in the city to receive such an award.
