Kazan Palace

Kazan Palace

Score

An iconic building is reborn as a sublimely luxurious hotel that exhibits great reverence for the past and for the city of Kazan, a UNESCO site where Europe and Asia famously intersect.

For most of last century, the building that is now home to Kazan Palace functioned as a hospital. Its restoration celebrates the architectural features of the original structure. The all-brick façade was buffed and reconditioned; the archways were returned to their original state; and the courtyard and its high ceilings were encased in glass to enable it to blend seamlessly with a new addition.

The hotel sets the tone for its handcrafted design look with beautiful examples of decorative cushions bedecked in handwoven ethnic fabrics from Turkey. In the rooms, graphics made by the design team were applied on wood paneling, while whites, grays, and nature-friendly materials set a sleek tone. The hotel’s public spaces host modern sculptures by Turkish sculptor Erdil Yaşaroğlu.

Wide open and welcoming, Kazanda Atrium Bar/Lounge is the heart of the hotel, a place for meeting new people or an intimate drink with an old friend. Equipped with a sleek fireplace and ecofriendly glass panels, the atrium is the heart of the hotel, where you can enjoy made-to-order dishes, traditional Turkish coffee served in porcelain made by iconic Turkish designer Faruk Malhan, or a relaxing glass of wine.

Topaz Restaurant presents an inspired modern take on Turkish cuisine. Whether it’s an abundant breakfast spread featuring Turkish delights or lunch and dinner rich in local culinary traditions, Topaz Restaurant serves inimitable regional dishes, functioning as the soul of Kazan Palace

From Turkish bath rituals to chocolate body wraps and more, the hotel’s spa offers sublime treatments. Guaranteed to soothe the body and uplift the spirit, the hotel’s divine Go Spa & Fitness facility offers an indoor swimming pool, the latest Technogym equipment, and a traditional Turkish bath. You can also give yourself up happily to a menu of assorted body massages, peels, face treatments, and more.
