Excellent, this hotel is a home, full of warmth, excellent staff, courteous, with great food, a must for travelers to Istanbul!!! You are in the Ottoman world with modern architecture and it is the best spot for wedding receptions and birthday parties!

The Ciragan palace is a very well managed hotel. Excellent service throughout. What we did not know from booking was that you stay in a newer building, not the palace itself, which was a disappointment. From the brochure, this cannot be seen and is somewhat misleading in my view. We had a great view from our room, however, the street... More

Istanbul is a very old city of Euro-Asia, slightly eclectic as architecture in the past 20 years. Out of many very good hotels of Istanbul, Ciragan Palace is in my opinion form the best 5* hotel of Istanbul and a unique one in some senses. I would rate it for Tripadvisor like an Excellent ++, as Excellent is not enough.... More

I did not know this was a hotel until writing this review. We went for dinner and tour, but did not stay so this review is not based on the hotel portion. The food was good and they had fabulous entertainment. The one complaint was that the entertainment went full boar for our entire meal, so it was a little... More

Walk around and take in the vistas of Istanbul. The grounds are perfect-stop by the palace and dine along the Bospherous. When we were there they had a special grilled dinner which was the best meal we had. The pool is one of the top 10 in the WORLD. You are treated very well, service is impeccable. 6 stars

Excellent stay for 4 nights in this hotel. The staff was very nice and helpful, the Turkish experience of hospitality is at very high standards here (founding sweets each afternoon in my room), big room and nice bathroom. Lots of pillows, quiet room even mine was on street side. And what about breakfast: a lot of choices (international, turkish, asian... More

Ciragan is one of those wonderful old palaces transformed into lavish hotels that exude both charm and noble and efficient service. Apart from the impressive architecture and splendid views, it offers an excellent hamman and delicious breakfasts overlooking the Bosphorus. I would suggest a permanent bar service at the pool for my joy to be complete.

This is a beautiful hotel with armies of staff to look after you. Great location on the Bosphorus but near enough via taxi to all the places you may wish to visit. Room rates here are eye watering and food and beverage even more so as a sandwich and a coke will cost circa 100 tl by the pool ie... More

It's pretty useless to write an review about Kempinski chain hotel. This one is completely up to its brand and Kempinski standards: service, rooms, accessories in the room, etc. Everything is excellent and as expected in the hotel of this chain. The pool is a blessing. The location is a bit off the city centre (10-15 minutes by taxi) and... More

A very special type of hotel experience. On the ground floor near to reception there are around 100 photographs of world dignitaries, celebrities, politicians, sports people and royalty who have stayed at the hotel, many with handwritten notes of thanks to the hotel. Hotel management did not offer to put my photograph on the wall. Breakfast one morning - Bryn... More
