Located in Ataköy Marina, the new hotel is the brand’s first foray into Istanbul, where they worked with I-AM to design the brand, interior, and digital elements. The concept was to design a hotel for young, active, and tech-savvy travelers with priority given to tech and communication innovations for the guests. The Cloud 7 Hotel might just have you thinking you’re on cloud nine with its relaxing accommodations and modern details that fit their motto of “dream, discover, inspire, live, meet, and share.” Take a look, for this month’s Destination Design.
The lobby is open for socializing, instead of defined spaces. It’s a place to share snacks, talk, get some work done, or grab a snack. They also did away with the reception area, letting guests check-in and check-out themselves via shared tablets.
There’s a bar, restaurant, and cafe, along with a grab & go area for much-needed snacks.
The Cloud 7 brand hopes to open 15 new hotels, just like this one, to fill a void of high-style, affordable hotels. With that, I-AM includes local details from that particular city, just like this one in Istanbul.

Each guest room is referred to as a Cloud, with the hopes of offering you a comforting cocoon-like place to retreat at the end of a long day. Wall-to-wall sliding windows and large mirrors give the illusion that you’re floating on air.
The largest rooms, the Cumulus Terrace rooms, are at the top and have large terraces with Marmara Sea views.
