My company had a work event inside the Palace and I stayed in the hotel for two nights. The service by the staff was impeccable and I was referred to by Mr. [Last Name] the whole time I was there. The rooms are very spacious and mine came with a balcony. The grounds itself were beautiful as were the interior.... More

One of the best location in the world and excellent service on the Bosphrous. Very friendly staff. Rooms are very nicely decorated. We stayed in Vali Suit, the very best view. Çırağan Palace is interesting to visit. All facilities are perfect.

We stayed at the Ciragan for two nights at the end of our honeymoon. It is luxury defined and worth every penny. Ask for Yusuf at the pool - he'll attend to your every need with grace, accuracy and promptness. While everyone at the concierge was great, we dealt mostly with Ugur Evren. He made us dinner reservations, gave directions,... More

From my experience, one of the best places in the world. When you arrive, you are offered some tea or water - and not first asked for your papers and credit card. The service level is exceptional for Europe. The view of the large restaurant on the Bosporus is phantastic. Food and rooms are good, no question - but it... More

We are regulars at the hotel, visiting is a treat when we go to Istanbul. On this trip, we chose to spend New Year's Eve there. The hotel ambiance was exceptional. The staff were as always, helpful, happy, and on point. The hotel has one of the most beautiful views of the world, overlooking the strait and on to Asia.... More

This is a beautiful hotel which has great views on both the Ciragan Palace and the Bosphorus. The classic restaurant is romantic and has an ambience which is truly unique : also its byzantine food is absolutely to try at least once. Rooms are modern and well equipped. The best way to enjoy the hotel is to book a room... More

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
