Hotel's Favorite
Having stayed at the Ciragan Kempinski Istanbul many times, it felt like home to return. But each time I notice more acutely what makes it feel like home—except more luxurious. Even before arrival, Mr Cagri, the super reservations manager, was extremely helpful via email in reserving the nicest room at the best price. Upon arrival I was met by the friendly and professional reception team. Special shout out to Nedim, who is always helpful in selecting the right room, making sure that everything is good. Efe at the reception was super helpful throughout my stay. The concierge team is amazing: Baris, Sinan, Ugur and Onder. Always super helpful with restaurant recommendations, advice sights in Istanbul, etc. etc. Because of Covid, I ate outside less and took advantage of room service a lot more. And so I must say that room service in this hotel is excellent—restaurant quality food that is delivered promptly. (I’ve experienced less at other hotels—even otherwise good ones.) Special shout out to the room service team: Umite, Cam, Tekkin, who always got the order right and delivered it within the time promised. Used the hotel spa a lot—including the gym, indoor pool and sauna / steam room. The spa team were great. I dealt mostly with Deniz, Faruq and Fadi who always made sure I had everything I needed (towels, refreshments, etc). The restaurants at Ciragan Palace are all first rate! You begin with a fabulous buffet breakfast with any sort of breakfast food you could want: eggs, various breads, fruits, vegetables, cheeses, even fish and hot dishes. Mr Ayhan at the breakfast was always so helpful getting us seated and cared for by the waiter staff. All day dining at the Gazebo is anything but routine: it consists of expertly crafted and original dishes, as well as Turkish classics. Speaking of which, Tugra restaurant in the Palace Section offers a super elegant rendition of traditional Turkish cuisine. Actually ate there with my partner for the special New Year dinner. What a lovely way to begin the new year! After dinner, actually soon after midnight, we switched over to Le Fumoir cigar bar, which was super lively. At Le Fumoir, Hussein and Gokhan were terrific in getting us seated and finding the best cigars and whiskey. During our stay we also tried the new Italian restaurant Bellini, which was superb. Like Tugra, it’s in the Palace section and has lovely views of the Bosporus river. Our room at Cirgan Kempinski was amazing. A one-bedroom suite with a Bosporus view. Very spacious and comfortable. It was a pleasure to sit at the balcony and enjoy the air, the view, etc. The room was cleaned at least twice a day, more if needed. The cleaning staff was always prompt and thorough, which made our stay truly pleasant. One last thing should be said. The personnel at Ciragan Kempinski are all superb, from top to bottom. There’s ALWAYS someone there to help you, reception, concierge, wait staff, housecleaning staff, spa staff, etc. They are always courteous and professional. Ciragan Kempinski is a wonderful place to stay when you are in Istanbul, whether for work or leisure. It is not inexpensive; but it is well worth the cost to enjoy the true feeling of home away from home—only much more luxurious!

One thing for sure is that Turkish food is very good and tasty but in Tugra it takes it to a higher level, the service provided by Cengiz was extremely friendly and prompt. The food that was made by chef Emre was so delicious and balanced with amazing flavor with every bite we took. If you want tasty meal in elegant place with wonderful service make sure to not miss this place.

The hospitality was amazing and so was the scenic beauty. For anyone and everyone who has money to spend, I think it’s ideal hotel to stay when in Istanbul. Actually I don’t need to say anything as they already have wall of pics of celebrities as proof.

We - party of 5 in 3 rooms - stayed for some sort of reunion. Let's start with the best: breakfast on the terrace by the Bosporus, the view from your room IF you book and pay the right room (or get super lucky), the great concierge team and the service that you get across the board (a sad sign of the times that you almost feel grateful for good service?).. This property is old and it shows in good and bad ways.Nobody would give away so much space for a garden anymore and that open space by the Bosporus is what gives you that Bosporus experience when you eat breakfast outside, "try" to have drink during gold hour, etc. The rooms are old and they are renovating half the hotel and it's needed. As I, the only good thing about the rooms (we did pay extra for that view and it's not to be confused with the room) is the quality of the woodwork of some of the furniture. Now, about that garden: it is beyond comprehension that they keep the restaurant/terrace where they serve breakfast closed in the afternoons and evenings. You can't get a space outside unless you like to sit in the Fumar area where - as the name says - you risk feeling like a salmon being smoked. And the seating there is anything but inviting. They tend to have functions in that area near the palace and try out the sound system, etc. In sum: unless you insist on that Bosporus experience and are willing to pay for the room that will give it to you and start breakfast early (once the hotel is fully open, that breakfast terrace is too small), do consider your options.

I was disappointed by the hotel room, the fact that it was positioned above the parking, it was dusty, on the Booking it was listed with a "park view", but it was not mentioned that the park is over a three-lane street that is very busy. The noise in the room is disturbing. The price is too high for what the hotel offers.
