The ship "Turan Emeksiz" carried passengers on the Bosphorus for many years. It has been converted into a floating hotel which is anchored in Guzelyali Marina and its cafe and restaurant are now visited by a distinguished clientele. The hotel is called the "Otantik Hotel" and it is the only one of its type in Turkey.After it had served for 45 years as a passenger ship, the BCR Company bought the ship and obtained privatisation status for it. Restoration of the "Turan Emeksiz" passenger ship lasted two years.The restoration project was carried out by the architect Hulki Türe. The nostalgic structure of the ship has been attractively blended with a modern decorative style. The ship is now anchored in Guzelyali Marina, on the Marmara Sea near Bursa. It has been turned into a comfortable and chic hotel called the Otantik Hotel, which still remains faithful to the original structure of the ship. The hotel is the ideal place for your accommodation needs, or for enjoyable parties, receptions and meals.
