The inauguration ceremony was held under the patronage of H.E. Nechirvan Barzani, Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government.

A first-of-its-kind concept in the Kurdistan region that introduces a new class of modern and stylish hotel apartments to the capital city, Erbil Arjaan by Rotana will be managed by Rotana on behalf of Malia Group, a leading business conglomerate in the Middle East with activities spanning six different sectors including hospitality and real estate.

A modern and elegantly designed property offering 168 spacious, fully furnished hotel apartments, Erbil Arjaan by Rotana features two exclusive food and beverage venues and 24-hour in-room dining service, in addition to a range of world-class facilities including seven meeting rooms equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment, 25 fully-furnished serviced offices and a state-of-the-art Bodylines Fitness and Wellness Club

Ideally located on 100 Street at the Baharka Bridge intersection of the city, Erbil Arjaan by Rotana was developed with both long-term guests and families in mind, combining spacious accommodation and a contemporary design to closely resemble a home environment, closing the gap between hotel room and home.
