Truly a luxury world class hotel. Enjoyed the room, breakfast and polite staff. Very attentive!! Breakfast was a grand buffet with anything you could wish for and if it wasn't on the buffet, they would provide without hesitation. I will definitely go back to this hotel. My only choice without a doubt!

Located on the European shore of Bosphorus, Ciragan Palace Kempinski is really a package from the late Ottoman era... It is one of the best hotels in the world and has a fantastic view of Bosphorus... The restaurants are great, you can have some delicious Turkish food...

Had a brilliant experience at this hotel attending my cousin's weddding party on 18-21st Aug 2016. I would implicitly like to recognise Mr. Yucel Cark, Head Waiter at Laledan Restaurant, who paid special attention to every single customer of his with great detail.

It had been quite a few years since my previous and only visit, which was very short and overnight, and so wasn't able to fully appreciate. From the moment of stepping in, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. My room was fairly standard for a five star hotel and was facing the park rather than the Bosphorus, so nothing...

There is certainly much more historic information available about the Ciragan Palace than I can write. My review is strictly about the hotel portion. The lobby was gorgeous. The assistance upon arrival was prompt, thorough, extremely friendly and instantly made us feel special without that 'fawning' feeling some hotels give. Our room overlooked the Bospherous and the view was stunning.... 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.
