This hotel was absolutely beautiful. My room was wonderful, the lobbies are great, the pool area was lovely, and the view of the Bosphorous was outstanding. However, nearly all interactions I had with staff members were extremely slow by American standards. Check-in took half an hour. A request for an item from the front desk took 45 minutes to arrive in my room. Coffee and juice requests at the breakfast buffet took much longer than in even low quality US restaurants. If you want a lovely location and don't mind slow (but friendly) service, I recommend the Ciragan.
