Just stayed at this stunning hotel for two nights. The service here is second to none. Incredibly helpful and friendly staff. I only wish I had more time to enjoy the terrace and its river view. I cannot wait to go back. Thank you!

Four night stay in late June and chose the Ciragan for several reasons which included the view and pool overlooking the Bosphorus plus the fact it is a leading hotel of the world with the club benefits.Checked in at a desk by a charming young lady who after a while gave in to our request of a upgrade (LHW possible...

We had the chance to experience the Bosphorus Grill which is a BBQ dinner in the summer every Sunday. We didn't stay in the hotel only went there for this BBQ. It's not cheap specially if you drink wine or champagne but the service and the food are perfect. There's a huge variety of dishes you can choose from the... More

We loved our stay at the Ciragan Hotel. The staff is incredible and every wish is their command. Everyone from the front desk to the business center to the concierge were so helpful to us! The staff at the pool are also quite lovely. The concierge made sure we had local restaurants and sites to visit when we were not... More

I stayed in the Ciragan Palace with friends because we wanted a luxury hotel for the very end of our trip. We are members of the Leaders' Club at Leading Hotels of the World and that brought us to this hotel. The room itself was quite comfortable, but nothing out of the ordinary for a luxury hotel. We had a... More

Prior to my visit I had looked at this hotel and hoped one day I could visit. After much consideration we decided to treat ourselves to a stay and we were not disappointed. Arriving tired from a long haul flight from Australia we quickly relaxed at Ciragan Palace. Our room had a view of the Bosphorus and was roomy enough... More

Expensive for Istanbul but as hotels go, it was very good indeed. Service was inconsistent: a few very attentive staff but yet some did let the side down. The location is great and the facilities are first rate. Rooms are a generous size with amazing views. Breakfast good.

This hotel boasts luxury in all aspects of a hotel. Extremely high on all standards of cleanliness, dining, terrace service and pool/spa facilities. I attended a wedding there which was faultless with the most stunning of settings and views along the river. My suite was luxurious with attention to detail and efficient housekeeping when needing a shirt pressing at the... More

This hotel is amazing and romantic, the prices are to high for turkey, but the palace is so beautiful that u forget about everything when u see it. However the prices in the shisha lounge and the bouffet in the loby are enormously overpriced. So be ready to pay a lot of money when u decide to stay in this... More

We just ended our 5 day stay in the Ciragan Palace so that we could join the Azarmara Journey for a 7 day cruise. All 4 in our group wanted to leave the ship and go back to the Palace!! What a hotel: our rooms faced Asia with cooling sea breezes; the beds were so comfortable that it was hard... More

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
