I had dinner with my mother this evening at the Gazebo Lounge and was very happy with the service received from Ibrahim and Ferhat. They were very polite, helpful, fast and attentive. A credit to the Cirigan Palace team. I will certainly return for dinner because of their service.

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I are Germans and due to business live a few years in beautiful Istanbul. Last weekend we invited very dear Turkish friends to Istanbul’s most prestigious hotel “Çırağan Palace Kempinski” and had a great time together - this elegant hotel has a very special location directly at the Bosphorus with amazing views from the first bridge to Topkapi Palace. But the highlight is the neighboured historical Sultan’s palace within the hotel area with wonderful suites, an aperitif bar and the famous Ottoman cuisine restaurant “Tuğra”, which was a unique experience! We were very lucky with the weather as well so we could even have coffee and tasty homemade cakes + chocolates at the nice outdoor terrace. We enjoyed also the SPA with private sauna and steam room and the excellent breakfast on the next morning. The rooms have come a bit in the years, but everything else was great, so we will definitely come back again! And as always most important are the people, so a big thank you to the entire staff, everyone was very kind, especially at the reception and the restaurants! A big compliment to the “Tuğra” service and kitchen team, they and the food were amazing!! Special thanks to - Ms. Özge Begüm Yilmaz (Guest Relations Manager) - Ms. Ferhan (Restaurant Tuğra Reservation Manager) - Mr. Sungur Kendibasina (Room Reservations Team) Ms. Özge was helping us extremely kind and attentive with everything from booking, choosing the best rooms, taking care for special requests and even surprised us with lovely welcome amenities at the rooms and therefore made our stay perfect! Ms. Ferhan cared for the perfect dinner organisation with the best table at Tuğra, helped with great expertise with the menu choice and even provided special menu cards for us and our guests, so it was an unforgettable evening! Mr. Sungur very kindly helped us with the booking of the rooms, be it on the telephone or by mail. So great job - we are looking very much forward to seeing you soon again! Ulla K.

Stayed here beginning of December to celebrate my birthday. From check in you will feel the authentic hospitality of Ciragan team. Welcomed by Ece, assisted and upgraded by Efe to one of his favorite room and tour around by Maryam in the Palace. The Bosporus view is spectacular and I will definitely recommend to spend extra for upgrade. Complimentary bday cake and wine thank you! One must experience staying here. The hotel itself and the grounds seems like a tourist destitation already, staying to one of the heritage of Istanbul, the breathtaking and relaxing view of bosporus has different feel to it that one should never missed.

Check-in was a breeze. Cake & drink in the room was a surprise. Views of the Bosporus from the balcony are unsurpassed. Great breakfast at Laledan. Tugra for ambience & fine dining experience. Polite staff. Checkout took couple of calls to get the luggage down, probably due to many check-outs at same time...
