There are some venues in the world that justify by themselves the visit to a specific place: the Ciragan Istanbul is certainly among these places. Take the most beautiful palace on the Bosphorus (once summer residence of the Sultan), add the 5 star services of the Kempinski standards, shake well, et voila! You get a stay that you won't forget.... More

Turkey is a place of beautiful people and our first visit to Turkey took us to Ciragan Palace Kempinski, a super deluxe luxury hotel located on the Bosphorus. The hotel exudes luxury in its design, service and the entire ambience. We had a deluxe family suit overlooking the Bosphorus with a huge balcony. Starting the day with a sumptuous breakfast...

This is one of the classiest hotels I have ever stayed at. When we arrived, we were taken to a desk to check in. The receptionist told us we were being upgraded by several categories to a room with a panoramic view of the Bosphorous. We had paid for a basic sea view room, which would have been fabulous but...

We had a beautiful room overlooking the Bosphorus. The service was amazing in the hotel and the restaurants. We especially enjoyed the Laledan restaurant and our great waiter, Mehmet Yasar. We would love to stay at the hotel again. Highly recommend it!

Trust me: You'll love the food! The service is so eloquent and knows how to take care of guests. The terasse was full,but as soon as a table was available, they offered it to me. Very kind and helpful staff. I didn't want to leave, because they made me feel so special.

The hotel has a wonderful location, however the service was terrible. Room service food was okay, but the waiting time was terrible. However, the beds were one of the most comfortable i have ever slept on. Cleanliness was decent. Would rate it 3/5

Everything about this hotel is extraordinary. The service is impeccable. The environment is amazing and the view of the Bosphorus is breathtaking. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms well appointed. I had a balcony overlooking the Bosphorus which I loved. We had drinks on the terrace in the warm evening and it was delightful. Breakfast was also very good... More

My husband and I began our honeymoon in Istanbul and stayed at the Ciragan Palace. It was beyond beautiful, excellent and truly 5 star service. From the spacious and luxurious hotel property to our room with stunning views of the Bosphorus to the incredibly delicious food (we still dream of the breakfast!) to the gracious and hospitable service, this IS...

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.
