Both my father and I considered our time at the Ciragan Palace to be the most incredible experience either has ever had at a hotel. Beyond the beauty of the building itself, the service by every staff member was beyond belief. As a few examples: The famous breakfast buffet was deservedly mentioned by people we met throughout Istanbul; it’s simply...

We had late lunch at Ciragan Palace by the pool facing Bosporous. Food was alright, they didn't have a lot of traditional turkish food on the menu in that particular restaurant of the hotel. We enjoyed the view more than the food. Service was great, they spoke a little english but did their very best.

A friend's recommendation to make a weekend stop in Istanbul led to the Ciragan Palace Kempinski. A combination of superb location, flawless service and old world charm will have us returning. The rooms are generous with unimpeded views of the bosphorus, the breakfast buffet is a days worth of eating in a meal and the warmth of the staff rounds...

Since I LOVE to eat... I have to say, that Kempinski's in general offer amazing breakfasts... but even within the Kempinski chain, Caravan Palace Kempinski Istanbul is one of the best in the world! The rooms are truly majestic, and the view is worth everything... The best place to stay at in Istanbul... An amazing hotel, in an amazing city!!!

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!

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.
