What a perfect setting this hotel has on the Bosphorus with the most spectacular views day and night. Excellent service and the rooms are second to none. Stayed for a weekend sightseeing visit to Istanbul and it was the perfect retreat after a busy day traipsing all over the city. Wonderful city, wonderful hotel.

I recently stayed at the Ciragan for 5 nights with my wife and 13-month-old daughter at the end of our 3 week holiday in Turkey. What a perfect way to end the trip! From the minute we arrived we knew the stay would be memorable. Every staff member that we encountered made us feel like they were providing special attention... More

I would argue this is the finest hotel in Istanbul. The setting is perfect, immediately alongside the Bosphorus. The service is first class from the minute you arrive, until to the point you depart. Nothing is too much trouble for the extremely attentive staff. Quality and cleanliness of the rooms excellent. I have stayed in many of the five star... More

From the moment you arrive you are greeted by friendly and helpful staff. This hotel is located right on the Bosphorus and thus has gorgeous views both day and night. I was there for a conference and the conference facilities were second to none. The hotels recreational facilities are gorgeous with one of my favorite places to be, by the... More

This is an amazing hotel, with amazing decor and history. If you are looking for modern, this is not the place to stay, it has tons of history and old ottoman class. Some might call it dated, but the wall of signatures from the many satisfied celebrities and Royal guests says otherwise. Service was like nothing I have ever experienced.... More

A wonderful Hotel at a great location in a city that never sleeps. Starting the day with a fantastic breakfast, a good coffee and an amazing view over the Bosphorus can only lead to a great vacation. Reception & Concierge have been very attentive and no request seemed to be to much. The rooms are well appointed with a small... More

We stayed at the Ciragan Palace as part of a business trip. This is a wonderful hotel. The best features are its view of the Bosporus and its restaurants. The rooms are large and well-appointed. Service is top notch. We have no complains whatsoever except for the fact it was a bit hard to get a cab when we wanted... More

The family and I stayed for three nights in April and would definitely recommend the hotel. The pictures don't show what an ugly exterior the hotel has, one only see's pictures of the beautiful Ciragan palace, so that came as a bit of a surprise and our room wasn't great as it was to the far left of the hotel...

The best hotel in Istanbul alongside the Bosphorus with incredible rooms and a wonderful view of the strait. There is an excellent service and great food. Engin Zor, the doorman is a very funny, polite and helpful person who even speaks a little spanish. It´s a few blocks away from several restaurants and shops. I will definitely go back to... More
