Service was exceptional, the room was very nice (carpeting needs to be changed, it looks very old) with a partial view to the Bosporus, and the Palace. The location was far from the center of the Sultan Ahmed district, where all the activity and some of the major sights are, but that was ok w/me since I was only there... More

Rich in culture, history and beauty. This has got to be the highlight of my European vacation. I felt like a princess from the moment we walked in, the service and the people were noteworthy. The ball rooms are painted in different bright appealing color schemes. You must wander aimlessly outside and in, the grounds are impeccable and the POOL,... More

We had an amazing experience at spa center and lately we were enjoing coffee with a Bosphorus view. Highly recommended for true romantics. As for the hotel itself it does not appeal. I would say it looks more elegant and impressive on a distance. Interior design is a bit oldschool as well as total experience (especially considering the price).

Everyone should be so lucky to experience a stay at Ciragan Palace. The location of the once summer residence of the sultans is on the Bosporus, within walking distance to the boats crossing to the Asian side and within a short taxi ride to Taksim square and the Horn. Rooms with a view to the sea are blessed with balconies... More

The hotel is very clean. All employers can smile every time, and ever ready to help you. My boyfriend, M.

After check in we were brought to a room with a view of a children’s playground… the room was on the side of the hotel that faces the Bosphorus, but no view. This is where the... More

All I can say is WOW. This hotel embodies the elegance and glamour of Istanbul and it is easy to imagine yourself in a time gone by. The building is breathtaking. The surroundings and service is excellent. The food was extremely tasty and does Turkish food proud. The pool is warm and overlooks the Bosphorus - heaven. I have to... More

Made a dinner reservation at this hotel. Stunning building. We had drinks on the terrace beside the swimming pool before dinner and adjourned upstairs to the dining room. Food and service outstanding. A little on the pricey side but very much worth it. Lovely for a special occasion.

I'm actually staying here at ciragan , but people be careful park view rooms are a nightmare. It's 2 am and the street right outside the rooms seems to be the hot spot for fast and furious wannabes. It's impossible to sleep. believe me I'm a heavy sleeper . Is amazing how in such an important part of the city... 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.
