I don't even know where to begin. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were living in a palace. Every need attended to, every desire fulfilled. The children we spoiled and doted on! They even brought a glass to the room filled with lollipops for them, as they thought they would rather that than the adult treats that... More

We have stayed in the Kempinski in Budapest and fell in love with it. When we planned our trip to Istanbul and found out there was a Kempinski there we knew we would stay there. Beautiful location, everything I expected. My only complaint (but we knew this before hand) is that it's a little pricey. What I really liked is... More

We were very disappointed with this hotel right from when we first entered through the big security screening checkpoint at the grand entrance. It's a massive hotel and you literally feel like nothing more than "a number" not at all like a guest. We stayed for 3 nights and each afternoon would spend an hour or two trying to relax... More

What can i say about this palace!! Even though the decoration is not exactly my style, i could not expect anything less from one of the most historical hotels of Istanbul. The location is unique, right on the shore of Bosphorus, with breathtaking views, close enough to the shopping and night life centre of this beautiful city. Service can be... More

This was my second visit to the Ciragan after 14 years. Things get old! When you enter the hotel you are very welcome by the staff. That's all. The rest needs to be modernized. The rooms, the restaurants, the lobby, the afternoon tea. Istanbul has so many modern hotels, boutique hotels and with good prices. Everything in the Ciragan is... More

My experience at Ciragan Palace was an unforgettable one, the BEST birthday ever and I highly recommend this hotel as for me it was not a 5 star hotel but a warm home environment. The staff is excellent, courteous, and above all, a friend to every guest.

The Ciragan Kempinski hotel is known as a must in Istambul hospitality This is correct because the care to the guest is the first goal of this hotel staff. The restaurants are very good, the breakfast is overhelming, the same is valid for the rooms. I highly recommend

Stunning hotel with breathtaking views of the river from our room. Great service, concierge extremely helpful in tracking down our lost luggage, suggesting and booking an amazing dinner cruise on the Bosphorus and helping us with car service to the old city. Rooms -very nice and they fulfilled our request for Bosphorous facing. Pool - decent size and good bar... More

We were choosing between this and the Four Seasons in the old town. We picked this because of the water view and weren't disappointed; the views are spectacular. This doesn't have the character of the Four Seasons (it's a bit generic), but the location can't be beat. Service was excellent, our rooms were spacious and well appointed. We didn't dine... More
