A very luxurious hotel that was originaly a part of a historical palace. The other part is still sttached to it and is made into a musium. It's a wonderful place on the beautiful bosphorus. However, the suit we took was very small, nothing special about it, and verryyyyy pricy. If you can afford it, it's a must.

I stayed 3 times at the Kempinski and was always amazed by its beauty, the quality of the service but mainly, their swimming pool overlooking the Bosphorus and their spa. If you ever want to try a real turquish hammam, don't hesitate, they will treat you like a Sultan.

Well, this is the place where the European royalty stays when they come to Istanbul...So there you go. Now you know what to expect in terms of infrastructure and service. I would say that this can be considered a "gold standard" for many hotels around the world. They are famous for the breakfast buffet so don't miss it. For me,... More

This hotel is straight out of a fairy story - a genuine Ottoman palace, you are pampered like royalty from the moment you step into it. The views are remarkable, the food superb and the service faultless. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves swimming in the mist and vapour of the outdoor infinity pool, even though it was December - the pool... More

Recently stayed at this hotel with my wife, it was a very nice hotel on the outskirts of town. Hotel had impecable services and cleanliness. The outdoor space was stunning, along with the renovated palace grounds. On arrival, there is great security each time you enter the hotel. The concierge was very helpful. The room was great with a beautiful... More

The CiraganPalace hotel is one of a kind experiences. Sit tight when you enter the driveway, as every car and person is heavily screened for security, but you also appreciate that as you set foot inside this grand hotel. The public spaces are open and filled with that east/west décor of Istanbul mystique. We had two rooms, both with views... More

We enjoyed three wonderful days in October at this lovely property. From the minute we arrived we felt like a "sultan". We availed ourselves of a package that included a delightful room, high tea,daily breakfast buffet ,a special dinner and two days with a very experienced guide. We felt welcome and safe during our entire stay.
