There are a number of very deluxe hotels in Istanbul, but the Ciragan Palace is heads above the rest. A former sultan's palace, to this day it exudes an atmosphere of Turkish luxury at its best. Situated directly on the Bosphorus, the view from many of the rooms is amongst the best in Istanbul--a CITY of many magnificient views. The room decor and amenities, the service, the dining experiences were all as good as it gets. I was most recently there on a business trip and had the enormous pleasure of enjoying a candle lit cocktail party in the former sultan's marble baths in the old building followed by an elegant dinner in an adjacent private dining room with ceiling to floor windows that opened onto the Bospherous. In my relatively frequest visits to Istanbul, I've stayed in the other 5 star Istanbul hotels. They are very nice--but this one is over the top!
