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

Stayed at this hotel last weekend. Greeting us was royal, we were taken to our upgraded room and the minute you enter you know you're in for a special weekend. The facilities are fantastic, the swimming pool is kinda of infinity and you sunbathe while watching East Istanbul on the other bank of the Bosphorus........breathtaking. Breakfast was rich and varied,... 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.

We booked a superior room with Bosphorous view for our anniversary and on arrival we were very pleased to be offered an upgrade to a grand suite with Bosphorous view on the 3rd floor. I could not believe the beautiful view from the room and balcony. The room was immaculate and unlike some reports on here was in perfect condition.... More

The strengths of this hotel are its exceedingly friendly and helpful staff, and its spectacular location right on the Bosphorus. Rooms, however, were a bit disappointing. Our first room was billed as a "sea view room," on the north side of the property. In fact our first floor view was of a wall, some palms, and two large satellite dishes.... More

Attended a wedding reception that was fantastic and had tea here as well. Views of the Bosporus were fantastic. Security was excellent and hospitality was what was expected but none the less exceptional.

If it weren't for the $15 ice coffee by the pool, We would would have enjoyed my trip more. This hotel is absolutely stunning in terms of location and views. The rooms are a bit stale and the lobby is very grand. A lot of people of importance come through this hotel. It's a big city hotel with lots of... More

This is a palace not only in name. We stayed for three nights and had superb service. Nothing was too much for the staff. Our room had a view of the Bosphorus that kept us mesmerised and delighted and the choice of six types of pillow made sure that the bed was extremely comfortable. Unfortunately the food (in any of...

My daughter and I stayed in the Ciragan Palace Kempinski a few years ago, and it became my favorite hotel in the world. I raved about it so much to my husband that we decided to stay there when we visited Istanbul together this summer. The strengths remain: a spectacular view of the Bosphorus, an exquisite lobby and public spaces,... More
