We stayed at the Kempinski Palace in early July and if you are looking for exceptional service we would recommend this hotel. Despite it being a city hotel, the location is fantastic as it is situated on the Bosphorus. We were immediately put at ease on our arrival with very efficient and helpful staff on reception. The rooms are pleasant... More

The location of the hotel is great. Right by the Bosphorus, no one can fault it. Wish we had more time to enjoy this wonderful city. The only problem we had was with the quality of the service. Food is tasty but service can be improved. Location is a bit far from the old town. You may wish to try... More

Very special if that's what your looking for. Went for a wedding and the staff were superb as was the good and location. We visited both before and after the wedding and the prices are a bit much and the staff were a bit slow, but the chilled atmosphere was worth it.

I use this venue quite often. Their service level is high end and they successfully keep it there. One down side thing is that the Hotel has always VIP guests as Presidents, PS's, Ministers etc from all over the World and the lobby is full of security people, and nosey. it is not in the hands of the Hotel management...

We came for a wedding at the Ciragan Palace, and had an amazing 3 nights. The grounds are gorgeous, the rooms are comfortable and classy, and lack nothing except irons and ironing boards (my pet peeve is when hotels, especially in this price range, do not have in-room irons. They did provide it when asked, however). We were shown to,... More
