Overview

The Ciragan Palace Kempinski Istanbul maintains the grand tradition of the Bosphorus. Combining architectural grandeur and panoramic views, guests will yearn for the days of the Ottoman empire.

You are greeted by Ladies In Red, female concierges who embody Turkish hospitality.
Once upon a time in the city of Istanbul, there was a hotel built around an Ottoman palace. This hotel was so lavish, so opulent, and so filled with old-world glamour that everyone who entered immediately thought they were a sultan.

Luckily, the hotel owners knew this, and ensured the illusion was maintained with impeccable service and royal treatment for every guest. Happily lost in the dream, the visitors wandered the palatial grounds and rose garden, swam and lounged around the infinity pool overlooking the Bosphorus, and dined on Ottoman and Turkish cuisine in the hotel's award-winning restaurants.

They relaxed with the authentic hammam bath, and slept in beds festooned with sensuous fabrics and pillows chosen from an extensive menu. Each night when they returned from their adventures, their beds were turned down, their rooms tidied, and Turkish delight was left behind for them. And they lived happily ever after ... until check-out day.

Like a Sultan

I was fortunate to have been upgraded from Superior sea room view to a Deluxe Sea View room. The size was more than enough. The view was beautiful. The breakfast at Laledan Restaurant was delicious, 7 days without complaints, the buffet was exceptional and higher than the standard, even the room service breakfast was more than expected. Tugra Restaurant at the Palace is one of a kind experience. Staff were mostly friendly and helpful, and most significant about this hotel is the view of the Bosphorus.

Impeccable Service on the Bosphorus

From the "ladies in red" to the incredibly helpful and knowledgable concierge staff to the maid service in the room to the wait staff in the restaurants and Le Fumoir, EVERYONE does their part to help create an enjoyable oasis in the densely populated city that is Istanbul. As is often said, "you get what you pay for", and Ciragan is no exception while being simultaneously exceptional in its own right.

Honeymoon in Istanbul

Istanbul placed between Europe and Asia is a city of both cultural and historical importance with the Bosphorus dividing the two continents. In this old buzzing city lies the Ciragan Kempinski. It is an old sultan palace restored to its former glory with such affection that touristboats stop to take photographs.

Staying in the hotel gives you a feeling of living on an island in the middle of a city. You get this feeling because when you walk around the hotel the only thing you can see is the magnificent view of the bosphorus, trees and the hotel.
If you chose to stay at ciragan ask for a sea view room and possibly a 180 degrees view room the view when you wake up in the morning is amazing.
The island feel also comes from the fact that Istanbul can be very hot during the summer. However you don't feel that at the Ciragan since it lies right next to the water andyou get a cool refreshing breeze.

Another great thing about the hotels location is that you can take water taxis around the city. City trafic is crammed and taking i cab is often no faster than walking. wiht the water taxis you get around quickly and you get sail on the bosphorus and watch the city from the waterfront.

When you are there you shold definitely se the blue mosque, hagia sophia, the old sultan palace, the underground cistern and the basar, which are all placed within 20 minutes walk of eachother.

If you are out for a real splash you can also go heli seeing since the hotel has its own heliport and you can get both heli and boat transfer to the airport to avoid trafic.

we stayed there a week on our honeymoon and had a great time.

the perfect experience

It is the best service we have received in a hotel. They tried very hard to provide the prestigious feel and they surely succeeded. It has created a lasting impression of "Kempinski" in our mind, more than any other luxury hotel brands. So I would call it the perfect hotel experience.
