I stayed for 3 nights at this luxury hotel and I would love to be able to return soon. The luxury is not just the magnificient venue, the wonderdul view of the Bosphorus from my varanda, the very comfortable bed or the good restaurants. You feel the luxury in the service. The room is made up twice a day in...

I sadly didn't get a chance to stay at this fabulous property but I did manage to dine in and absorb the truly breathtaking surrounds of the Bosphorus. This property is truly stunning, the whole front entrance is palatial and reeks of grandeur. Inside is adorned with fabulous marble, elegant walk ways, steeping staircases and enormous chandeliers.

I don't even know where to begin. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were living in a palace. Every need attended to, every desire fulfilled. The children we spoiled and doted on! They even brought a glass to the room filled with lollipops for them, as they thought they would rather that than the adult treats that...

We have stayed in the Kempinski in Budapest and fell in love with it. When we planned our trip to Istanbul and found out there was a Kempinski there we knew we would stay there. Beautiful location, everything I expected. My only complaint (but we knew this before hand) is that it's a little pricey. What I really liked is...

We were very disappointed with this hotel right from when we first entered through the big security screening checkpoint at the grand entrance. It's a massive hotel and you literally feel like nothing more than "a number" not at all like a guest. We stayed for 3 nights and each afternoon would spend an hour or two trying to relax...

What can i say about this palace!! Even though the decoration is not exactly my style, i could not expect anything less from one of the most historical hotels of Istanbul. The location is unique, right on the shore of Bosphorus, with breathtaking views, close enough to the shopping and night life centre of this beautiful city. Service can be...

This was my second visit to the Ciragan after 14 years. Things get old! When you enter the hotel you are very welcome by the staff. That's all. The rest needs to be modernized. The rooms, the restaurants, the lobby, the afternoon tea. Istanbul has so many modern hotels, boutique hotels and with good prices. Everything in the Ciragan is...

My experience at Ciragan Palace was an unforgettable one, the BEST birthday ever and I highly recommend this hotel as for me it was not a 5 star hotel but a warm home environment. The staff is excellent, courteous, and above all, a friend to every guest.

The Ciragan Kempinski hotel is known as a must in Istambul hospitality This is correct because the care to the guest is the first goal of this hotel staff. The restaurants are very good, the breakfast is overhelming, the same is valid for the rooms. I highly recommend

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
