Çırağan Palace is the last example of Ottoman period. It’s turned into five-star luxury hotel of the Kempinski Hotels chain. The palace is connected with a wonderful marble bridge on the Yildiz Palace on the hill behind. Your next trip should be on the European shore of the Bosphorus between Beşiktaş and Ortaköy in Istanbul, because that’s exactly the place where this magnificent palace is situated.
This grandiose property was a residence for sultans and now the numerous royals and heads of state staying at the Çırağan Palace and claim that this is indeed an extraordinary place with excellent service and accommodation. Guest rooms overlook either the Bosphorus or Yıldız Park, formerly a hunting forest for the sultans. It has also a luxury spa, wellness centre, indoor pool and a fitness centre.
The hotel’s four restaurants, each one accented by a balcony or terrace overlooking the Bosphorus, offer world-class food as well as a service. With the infinity pool, delicious food, tastefully decorated rooms and magnificent views this hotel is luxury at its best. 11 suites in the imperial Palace was once enjoyed by the majestic Sultans of the Ottoman Empire and now you can enjoy in them too.
For sure Çırağan Palace is one of the world’s most expensive hotel suites but it will give you a chance to get a taste of the good life.
