Ciragan Palace Kempinski Istanbul


Located on the European banks of the Bosphorus, the Ciragan Palace Kempinski is an icon of Istanbul. A member of the Leading Hotels of the World, this historic hotel straddles a restored 19thcentury Ottoman palace and modern annex, combining Old World glamour with contemporary comforts.

The majority of the 313 opulent guestrooms and suites are in the modern annex, featuring seating areas, writing desks, and sliding doors leading to balconies overlooking the Bosphorus or park. Eleven of the suites are in the palace, including the Sultan Suite, each offering 24-hour butler service.

Laledan restaurant is renowned for its buffet breakfast and Sunday lunch, while Tugra serves Turkish and Ottoman cuisine.

The hotel is ideally placed to explore the historic sights, traditional bazaars and shopping malls of Istanbul. Back at the hotel, cool off in the infinity pool, unwind in a Turkish hammam, and enjoy a nightcap in Le Fumoir.
