It was my second time in Istanbul and second time in Ciragan Kepinski. I choose this hotel again because its swimming pool and the Bosphoru´s view from the room. But this time we have a small problem. There was a big queue for checking out and we had to wait a little long, what is inadmissible for a luxury hotel.... More

Stunning service awaits you from the second you alight, through check in, and for us at every point of contact with staff. But it is when you view Ciragan Palace and the Bosphorus that one realizes how special this place is. Sitting on the room balcony, or in one of the restaurants, soaking in the the history is a memorable... More

Located by the Bosphorous shore, with a pier to board boats, the hotel has all luxury palaces need : indoor and outdoor pool, spa and fitness room, several bars and restaurants, and additional shops you would expect in such a place. Rooms are large, comfortable and very silent, with good air conditioning, and excellent beds. Rooms with a view on... More

Steeped in history and now an International Hotel, the Ciragan Palace Kempinski has a splendid position on the European shore of the Bosphorus and generally the facilities and gardens are a delight for travellers. We appreciated the taxi service managed through the concierge, who would translate and communicate to drivers. The housekeeping service was also efficient and thorough. The food... More

The hotel sits in a perfect setting on the Bosphuros. So tranquil and breezy in the heat of August. We saw sights in the morning and were happy to know we would return to the amazing, refreshing, relaxing pool on the Bosphorus in the afternoon. The rooms are comfortable with big beds and nice pillows. The hotel provides plenty of... More

The location and layout of the hotel along the Bosphorus were mesmerising & we were extremely fortunate to be upgraded to a suite with a view that brightened your day. We were greeted like royalty on arrival having been collected from the door of the plane in a friendly and efficient manner. The layout is open & airy with a... More

I'm always happy to pay top dollar for somewhere magical to escape and where I know I will be treated as such. Kempinski Ciragan didn't deliver. The hotel is obviously spectacular and the location on the Bosphorus is better than anywhere but when it comes to service it was a big disappointment. With the exception of the lovely staff in...

The Ciragan Palace hotel is beautiful and the views over the Bosphorus are lovely. One down side is because it is so lovely there are usually weddings, parties or other functions taking place (like a birthday party for a 1year old with 200 guests - as you do!) Reception was very efficient on check-in but less so on check-out as... More

What a fantastic location, superb facilities backed up by helpful and attentive staff. Right on the Bosphorus you could not wish for a better outlook. Great pool, fitness and spa facilities and great dining options. Ensure you get a room with a view of the Bosphorus, will definitely stay again.
