We enjoyed this as a couple. Our first time away from the kids in a long time and we weren't disappointed. We loved the atmosphere, the pool and the views were incredible. Outstanding service and accomodations. Only negative was the distance from the Olde City but well worth it!

We've spent yet another weekend in Istanbul, one of our favorite destinations for a fun, wining-dining-shopping few days. A great city and wonderful people! Our favorite hotel, Ciragan Palace Kempinsky did not dissapoint us at all this time with their courteous service, elegant welcoming, fantastic Bosphorus view rooms, excellent concierge expertise, lavish breakfast and this "je ne sais quoi" which...

I stayed here for work, as we are hosting a conference here later in the year, but managed to squeeze in some relaxation too. The hotel is simply stunning. The location is perfect - on the banks on the Bosphorus. Room was beautiful - super comfy bed, and everything you could want provided. Fabulous bathroom with lovely robes, slippers and... More

We stayed here for two nights after one night in Sultanahmet. We made the right choice - one night in the busy hustle and bustle of the old city and then two nights relaxing on the Bosphorus. We didn't go back to the old town once we'd arrived at the Kempinski but just explored further up the coast - Bebek,... More

If there is a better location in this magnificent city, find it. I challenge anyone to get a more stunning and elegant property. The hotel overlooks the blue Bosphorus, with the bridge at a most beautiful distance. The rooms are lovely, the gardens lush, the service worthy of royalty and the breakfast!!! Homemade ketchup and mustard, delectable cheese croissants, fabulous... More

I attended a work conference at this hotel. It is truly amazing luxury. My room had an incredible view, although it was rainy and I had sadly no time to enjoy it. The service was excellent.

I was really blown away by this palace. We had a conference there which really made a huge impression. The place is regal, luxurious and opulent, and the property itself really contributed to the mood of the event. It's close to attractions, and easy to find.

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.
