Gorgeous Ottoman Palace! We stayed in a Jr. Suite with views of the Bosphorus and the Asia side of Istanbul. The suite was opulent and fit for royalty and the staff was very hospitable. The hotel Spa offers a "couples" Turkish Hamam, a luxurious experience and one we will never forget. We enjoyed a romantic dinner on the balcony at Tugra (the hotel's 5 star restaurant) I opted for the "special menu" designed to replicate Sultan Abdülâziz' celebration meal,complete with traditional Ottoman delights! The Real Madrid Soccer team were guests of the Palace, too.The Ciragan Palace offers the highest standard of Luxury. I hope to return.
