This phosphorus luxury hotel is nice location that you can enjoy it, have a good and fun time, with family or friends or even alone as I do from time to time. Because it's directly in front of the sea you can sit and relax and clean your mind.

It is our 5th time in Kempinski Cirağan Palace Istanbul. Amazing hotel and resort. The pool area is so cool and the second pool where you are overlooking the bosphorus is simply outstanding! Rooms are nice and neat, toilet is medium size but well decorated. They refill our bottles of water everyday, and they put dessert or fruits on a...

Amazing view of Bhosphorus and amazing services. Overall experience of staying in this hotel is wonderful. Staff was very courteous and location of hotel was also quite ideal as it was situated not a distant location from Taksim and restaurants.

I'm in Istanbul again. It's been my 8th or 9th visit and I can't miss a chance to visit my favorite place - Ciragan Kempinski. I came for lunch and staying here for the last 2,5 hours enjoying the view and atmosphere. I noticed that menu has changed, however, they do have vegetarian options which is important for me. Fantastic...

The hotel is simply excellent! The best to choose in Istanbul. Rooms deserve 5 stars, the view is absolutely stunning. Breakfast offers food for all tastes and a huge choice. A restaurant (otoman) I strongly suggest for an elegant dinner, because they serve really delicious otoman cuisine.

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.
