The hotel entrance, lobby and restaurants each have different themes that showcase Ottoman art with designs. In the hotel’s two upgraded restaurants located within the hotel building of Çırağan Palace Kempinski, guests can enjoy a refined culinary experience. The restaurants will host food enthusiasts with new concepts; one of the restaurants will be a chef restaurant, offering unique experiences with their taste and design details.

The first phase of the project will debut before summer.

Çırağan Palace dates back to the 17th century. The building had different functions, including a waterside summer villa and a marble palace. After a complete restoration and with the addition of a modern hotel building offering more rooms, restaurants and meeting venues, the Hotel and Palace opened in 1991 as an accommodation and event venue managed by Kempinski.
