Best hotel ever!

Dream location on Bosphorus, all VIPS stay there (including Christiano Ronaldo and many other Royals)
Yes you pay for the view, location and interior. The food is nothing special and of course more expensive than in other restaurants.

Worth visiting / the main hotel seems to be in a modern building -the old palace seems to be function rooms or perhaps special suites. Pool area very nice. Bar lovely location by Bosphorous. A bit out of historic town but can see how is a retreat in busy city.

One of the World's Truly Great Hotels

Sheer luxury in the heart of Istanbul on the banks of the Bosporus - what else could you ask for? This is palace living at it very best. Rooms are elegant and comfortable, views are fantastic, service is impeccable and dining options are extraordinary. This is so much more than a hotel - it's a destination in and of itself. Spend the extra money - you'll be glad you did.

Beautiful hotel with amazing staff. Definitely worth the money. Made our trip to Istanbul very memorable. The views are amazing, the rooms are spacious, the staff warm and friendly and the hammam was fabulous.

Quite excellent - old school charm and elegance

Ciragan Palace is definitively one of the great hotels of the world which make one’s experience of staying in Istanbul just that little bit more memorable than anywhere else. The rooms are well appointed in an imperial style that is not out of place in a genuine palace built by an Ottoman sultan and dining on the terrace in the shadow of the original baroque building is one of the most delightful places in the world. Breakfasts are quite superb and the Bosphorus Grill was excellent. When my son was unfortunately taken ill in response to a food allergy, the hotel staff when out of their way to ensure we were looked after for the rest of our stay.
