loved the hotel, its location, the services, the amenities, the pool right on the bosphorus and its adjacent terraces, bars and restaurants. The good people at kempinski and the local owners made sure to offer the best that is in town, and because they know it, they are charging you for it. If you are looking to spend without counting...

We has an excellent dinner on the balcony of the Ciragan Palace and everything was just perfect. The staff is excellent and they took care of all our whims and fancies. Located right on the bosphorous it is an excellent place to feel like the royalty of the Turkish empires used to experience.

Stayed recently at the Ciragan palace and had heard that it was fantastic. But in my opinion it really isn't worth the extra money per night over one of the hotels rated higher on the list on trip advisor. Firstly the positives. The hotel interior is old and beautiful and makes you feel like your in a palace. Also the... More

I stayed here for 6 nights as part of a conference. The hotel is set beautifully on the Bosphorus and takes advantage of its position. The staff are very polite and will help you as much as possible, however many are not fluent in basic English. The rooms are well appointed and decorated tastefully. However if you look carefully the... More

We had the pleasure to have a 3 night stay in 2 connecting Superior Bosporus Rooms. These had an amazing view on Bosporus and bridge. The rooms are a bit old fashioned but well maintained with all available amenities you can imagine. The internet access which is very important for me is excellent. The included breakfast is one of the... More

I had dreamed about swimming in the gorgeous pool at the Ciragan palace and decided that we were going to have that experience on this trip to Istanbul. We booked a room with a superior Bosphorous view- fantastic. All my contact with the hotel before arrival was excellent (cordial and helpful). Upon arrival,we were greeted at the entrance by name...

Although the interior and the two wings are new the facade of the main building remains that of the old Palace. Security is high with bags going through a scanner in the foyer. The lunch is very good with a mixture of hot and cold items and cakes and biscuits to follow. Coffee is available and they seem to be... More

With a long layover at the airport, we decided to go have lunch on the edge of the Bosphorus at Ciragan Palace. We were 5 exhausted and hot travelers. Lunch was splendid, beautifully served on the terrace overlooking the river. Served impeccably. We are very grateful to Luftiye Kurtoglu who made sure everything ran according to plan including finding our... More
