It surprises me that it has taken 50 years for me and my wife to come to Istanbul, but well worth the wait. A wonderful wonderful city and the Ciragan Palace reflects the happiness of our stay. The Hotel is superbly appointed, positioned on the European side of the Bosphorus, bang on the water.The hotel is not cheap, but for... More

The hotel is fantastic from the rooms to the conference/ballrooms to the outdoor areas. The view of the Bospherous is amazing and the palace building is an attraction unto itself. I was here for a conference but look forward to visiting again for a personal holiday with my family.

A really traditional, old style luxury hotel. Fabulous views, really nice public rooms, what I would describe as traditional, not faddy or ' designed' guest rooms but just real old fashioned comfort where you can actually work out how to switch off the lights! The staff are great, really helpful. The doorman really went out of his way to help... More

We've stayed at the Ciragan Palace more than 15 times over the last 7 years. The view of the Bospherous is breathtaking. You don't need to leave the hotel to enjoy Istanbul. The service is impeccable and rare to find in this day and age. The food is of the highest quality and the spa is superb, all of which... More

Stayed there for 4 nights during a conference. Exceptional services across all department. I broke my glasses during my stay and the concierge was able to send it to an optical shop and repair it within 90 mins. In-Room Dinning services were speedy and of high standard. I stayed in a room facing the ocean on the top floor and... More

Great experience at this luxury hotel. I had an amazing view of the Bosphorous River looking across to the Asian side of Istanbul. I arrived by boat at the hotel (a great way to travel in Istanbul!). The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly throughout my 5-night stay (I was attending a conference for my company). I was treated daily... More

Like the others who have written positive reviews of the Ciragan Palace, only superlatives come to me as I recall the week I spent there in March 2014. This was my second visit in ten years. The location is terrific both in terms of the physical geography of Istanbul and the Bosphorus, and in terms of access to the storied... More

I cannot say enough about this hotel. It's beautiful, stunning really, the rooms were very well designed, and the staff was terrific, attentive, polite, and responsive. The breakfast was so good I could have had it all day long..... The pools are warm, with great views of the Bosphorus. The spa is nice, though steam and sauna could have been... More

It is great pleasure that I write this review about Ciragan Palace Kempinski Istanbul. We organized a large conference which lasted over a week at the Ciragan with Top Executives with much success in early March 2014. The location of the hotel (being right on the Bosporus) as well as the architecture is great. Conference room surroundings are simply put... More

Sunny afternoon chilling at the terrace with a special culinary experience. Suggest to all who loves cakes and chocolate. Very nice atmosphere, amazing architecture with a breath of the ottoman style. Very caring service with sweet attitude. Nice view on the Bosporus, breathy and sunny straight next to the pool, separated with a side glass wall, no wind is to... More
