Istanbul is impossible to imagine without the Çırağan Palace. Set on the Bosphorus, this 5-star hotel retains the romance and majesty of the Ottoman Palace it once was. With its palm-lined gardens, infinity pool and exquisite fine dining, this is the place discerning locals choose to party, marry, celebrate and just be.
All the suites and rooms at the Çırağan Palace are light, luxurious and spacious, with balcony views over the gardens or sea. Like the hotel’s ballrooms and meeting spaces, they’re carefully styled to combine baroque touches and opulent furnishings.
The elegance continues in the hotel’s four restaurants, including Tugra its premier fine-dining room which features live Turkish music. However, the hotel’s palatial origins are perhaps seen most clearly in the hammam, the Turkish Spa, which has a white marble floor and exquisitely carved walls.
