Great hotel, great location, and awesome service! The pool was just amazing! And the buffet at the Bosphorus Grill at night was sublime! But get ready to empty your wallet, because luxury has a cost... At least the food was excellent, and the service, unbeatable!

Outstanding service. Huge room. The hotel anticipates every need you may have, and has it available to you. My clothes were pressed after traveling, my hair was blown to perfection at their salon, the food at Turga was outstanding - as was the service. The pool is beautiful. The buffet at night is so convenient, and the food is so... More

We stayed here over a year ago but I completely forgot to review. Simply put, the staff, the hotel and the rooms were all incredible. Top notch service from the moment we arrived. This was my first time in a Kempinski hotel and they have earned my loyalty. It's the first chain I look for when booking travel.

The place is fantastic but if eating at "Tugra" Ottoman Restaurant, DO NOT expect good food. Not even average. €250 for 2, including a bottle of wine was a rip off as far as the food is concerned. It is worth it just sitting there soaking all the history and beauty of the structure all in ..... but the food... More

I am originally from Istanbul but live in the UK. I used to love this hotel and stayed there every year just to touch base. It had a certain quality and despite its very high prices I used to think that it was worth it. Well, this is no longer the case. I have only managed to bring myself to... More

Stayed here as part of a large wedding party, and the wedding functions took place at the hotel also. Spectacular setting, and excellent proactive service. I felt the rooms a little run down, still in good shape but a little refurb wouldnt do any harm, certainly to the bathrooms also. Given the location the grounds are large, the palace itself... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Ciragan Palace Kempinsky in Istanbul for 5 nights. The hotel provided excellent service in every area. We had a park view room which was very quiet with king bed, watch the very deep tub as can be challenging getting in/out of but wonderful once you are in! Location of hotel is close... More

Fantastic location on The Bosphorus with a lovely swimming pool almost fading in to the water. The hotel public areas are luxurious and offer a great opportunity to walk through to the Ottoman Palace and explore it's history. The hotel is a short taxi ride into Istanbul or go the other way on a ten minute walk to find some... More

Service was very good throughout the hotel. Very clean and large rooms. Turndown service was excellent. The manager was always around. Concierge guidance was very helpful. Nearby ferry service was very good to get around.
