Ciragan Palace Kempinski, Istanbul

Combining the architectural grandeur of the palace with the modern comfort of a deluxe hotel by the Bosphorus, the Ciragan Palace Hotel Kempinski Istanbul offers a resort ambience in the center of the city with 315 rooms.

Once the residence of the last Ottoman Sultans, the Ciragan Palace Hotel Kempinski İstanbul is the only hotel situated directly on the European shores of the Bosphorus.

As the first member of the Leading Hotels of the World in Turkey, The Ciragan Palace Hotel Kempinski İstanbul is actually two hotels: the restored Sultan’s Palace itself and a grand deluxe hotel featuring five star luxury.

Enjoy the privilege of our private grounds with royal gardens, seaside promenade and panoramic views, a perfect oasis in the center of the city.

Our award winning culinary team will enliven your senses in any one of the half dozen signature restaurants. ( Laledan; World cuisine – Tuğra; Modern Turkish and classical Ottoman cuisine and more.)

Newly renovated guest accomodation and well appointed palace suites ensure the utmost in both luxury and comfort.

Airport transfer service by our private fleet whether by limousine, helicopter, or motor yacht allows you to begin your Ciragan experience the moment you step into this majestic city.

If not The Burj in Dubai, Almost every grand hotel in Las Vegas fits this category They're hotel, theme park, casino and tourist attractions at the same time!

It's interesting to see the tastes of people in this thread , you have those who prefer large and flashy, as opposed to traditionalists.
