In a previous life, the grandiose Çırağan, which overlooks the Bosporous, was a residence for Ottoman sultans.
The numerous royals and heads of state staying at the Çırağan Palace are continuing a long tradition: in a previous life, this grandiose property on the European side of the Bosphorus was a residence for sultans. The regal feeling is most pronounced in the Palace suites, whose vaulted ceilings, elegant antiques and textiles evoke the opulence of the Ottoman Era. Guest rooms overlook either the Bosphorus or Yıldız Park, formerly a hunting forest for the sultans. On-site dining options include Tug˘ra, whose classic Turkish cuisine is considered among Istanbul’s finest (the terrace is a favorite spot for romantic meals). All restaurants and many rooms have sweeping views of the Turkish metropolis and stretch out across the Straits toward Asia.
