Turkey tourism authority to reopen the doors of some hotels
The tourism authority of Turkey, which had shuttered all hotels for two months due to the unrest in Istanbul, has announced it will reopen the hotels.
Housed in the Turkish capital, Ankara, the hotel reopened on Wednesday.
The hotel has been a major tourist attraction in Istanbul for years.
In February, a hotel was opened for guests in Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet Square.
Turkey has been experiencing a wave of political unrest since late last year, when a pro-Kurdish party in the Kurdish region of the country won a historic parliamentary election.
The Turkish government has been struggling to quell the demonstrations, with thousands of people arrested over the past month.
The government also cracked down on political gatherings in Istanbul in January and February, prompting widespread protests.
