good facilities, although indoor pool was closed for renovations. View from bar on 14th floor is spectacular, although so are the prices at +-E10 for a local beer. Staff throughout the hotel were super. Location is too far out from the centre. None of the mains attractions are within walking distance apart from the ferry terminals.Restauraunt prices and poolside prices are verty expensive.
The location, roof top terrace has stunning views, excellent music and friendly staff. Breakfast had a fantastic choice of foods. All staff were very helpful. Meze resturant food should be more rustic and more like a traditional Meze, though the food was tasty. I thought wine was a little expensive, or have a more varied price list.
Luxury hotel, great location, greatest view on the Bosphorus. I got a great deal moneywise as well.
The Scenery From My Room and From the Summit Bar @ 14th Floor 1- Food was not good. 2- It is far from the sites you need to visit in Istanbul
It was an amazing stay. Superb attention to detail, breakfast was amazing.
Staff very helpfull Everything perfect
Luxury hotel, great service, superb location, excellent breakfast buffet
Breakfast buffet was the same for 5 days .. Location is not near Taksim square (you need a taxi for tl 12)
nice hotel the smell of the hall and the reception area and the monet resturant when they serve the beakfast it smells like kitchen and when you get out trhe smell is still in your clothes!!
The view from Top Bar Roof Terrace No transfer to and from airport. No breakfast included in price
Good location close to city, quiet environment, bosphorus view in some rooms No free wifi and extremely high charges to have access, rooms needs refurb to compete in the five star class
Not on the expected level
I've stayed in many hotels in Istanbul, but Çırağan Palace - is the most luxurious hotel in the city.
The most terrible thing is that this hotel does make change of money from EUR to TL, and does not change from TL to EUR. It is really terrible because they leave you with a bunch of TL in your pocket to use it nowhere. I felt totally dissapointed and cheated.
brekfast, hamam, and the pool for this price I was expecting beter view from the room and a biger room. Algthough not far away from the city center, because of trafic problems, we had to travel (always with taxi) half an hour to and from the hotel. It was very expencive. For example, one extra botle of water 10 euro in the room! But the had also to smal ones for free
The comfort, the view and location as well as the excellent services and facilities
the relaxation and the luxasry
It is the most impressive hotel I have ever stayed in terms of luxurious hospitality. The unavailability of what I understand are a wide range of Turkish wines by the glass, in better restaurants in Dublin one can now avail of wine by the glass of up to 90 types. The bottles are held in a vacuum cabinet, for my wife and I to try a red and white Turkish wine with our dinner in the Tugra would have been nice.
I liked the location by the Bosphoros. Very scenic. I liked the setting of the Burga restaurant located in the adjoining former Ottoman palace. The concierge staff were very helpful in suggesting nice restaurants to go to. The doorman was also very helpful in getting me and wife a taxi and in giving the driver the needed instructions. None
The quality of the staff. The fact that the greeter remembered our names is amazing. so is the location and view. That I did not have enough time to enjoy all of the facilities.
The serenity of the waterfront facilities, dedication and professionalism of staff, excellent restaurants on the premises (with Bosphorus view). Decoration in rooms high-quality but rather stale. Even if I had my room at a discount I found it rather mean that not even continental breakfast was included (less value for money than another Istanbul hotel I stayed at earlier in the same sojourn)
Absolutely astonishing historical building, great view, location, excellent food. Had to wait for couple of hours upon check-in until the room is ready.
Very friendly and welcoming staff. I had a nice and big room with a desk (room 612, last floor). Amazing view direction west, on the city and the Bosphorus. Very good breakfasts and friendly staff (in company of a friendly visiting seagull on the window ledge!). Free wifi access (sometimes hesitant in the room but very efficient in the lobby). I guess it is worth the price for Istanbul but I wish it would be slightly less expensive to come more often!
excellent location; superb views from restaurant and balconies overlooking city and bosphorous;
Location on the Bosphorus,close to ferries, walking distance for Ortakoy restaurants, next to large park. View from room and terrace restaurant spectacular. Food very good.
Reasonably sized and clean rooms. Friendly staff. Good buffet breakfast included in room rate. Pleasant rooftop restaurant with excellent view. Limited English language skills for some front office staff. Would prefer they controlled the birds in outdoor breakfast area more effectively.
The area is one of my favoites, close to the Bosphorus (for the views and crzy nightlife) and Bebek area. Hotel staff were very friendly and breakfast was fair with satisfying spectacular view on the Bosphorus They were not flexible when asked about extending our time of check-out Our flight was at midnight and we asked for check out at 6:00 or 8:00 pm for half-board. Our demand was refused. This is an extra effort they could have allowed since our room was available...
The staff were extremely helpful and efficient. The views from the breakfast room and terrace as well as from our room balcony were incredible.
