Stayed at the Kempinski for one night before flying to Dalaman the morning after. We arrived late afternoon on Friday – hungry and tired we checked in to a double room with king size bed. Even the cheaper rooms are wonderful. Large room, nice bathroom and a sea view balcony. We had a late dinner at the BBQ along the... More

I absolutely loved my stay at Ciragan Palace. The hotel is so grand and you really get that 5 star feeling from it. The rooms are spacious and well designed with large bathrooms. The gardens are just stunning - I could have spent hours in them. Short walk away from some great restaurants and clubs. I look forward to returning.

Stayed at Ciragan Palace on the Bosphorous for first time...an absolute treat. Rooms are great ..stayed on 5th floor which had great views. Enjoyed finest food and dining. All staff displayed exceptional service and friendliness from the moment of arrival to departure. Loved the architecture and decor of the hotel...but mostly the wonderful pool and setting. Will be back.

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.

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.
