Ciragan Palace Kempinski, Istanbul

The next morning I checked-in to another hotel. The most famous and beautiful hotel not only in Istanbul but in the whole Turkey. The Ciragan Palace Kempinski. An ottoman palace right on the edge of Bosphorus. From the moment you get in there you definitely feel like a sultan.

It has a heated outdoor pool where you can relax and enjoy the view of the sea and the palace. The rooms are classy and the entire hotel is like it popped out of a fairy tale. After all it is no coincidence that celebrities like Madonna and JLo chose to stay there.

At night have dinner at the palace restaurant. Where else! It serves original ottoman cuisine and dinning under the candles is a memory hard to forget.

While I was leaving, I wished that the fast growth of the city won’t destroy all that mystery and tradition that characterises Istanbul.
