Why we like it

Like us, you’ll want to explore Istanbul, and the Çırağan Palace Kempinski’s concierge service goes above and beyond in ensuring that you experience every corner like a true local by giving you all the inside information. After a day exploring the mosques and bazaars, you’ll want to unwind, so have a swim in this urban escape’s infinity pool whilst overlooking the romantic Bosphorus.
