A Hedonist’s guide to…

Istanbul

Çiragan Palace
One of Istanbul's most impressive hotels, it is hard to beat the Çiragan Palace for all-round opulence - not to mention its fabulous location on the Bosphorus and excellent facilities.
Çiragan Palace Kempinski Spa
The plush five-star Çiragan Palace boasts of an outdoor massage area, a heated infinity pool, and hamams fit for a sultan (or, indeed, a sultana).
Four Seasons at Bosphorus
The Four Season's second property in Istanbul has panoramic views stretching out over the Bosphorus.
Four Seasons at Sultanahmet
With 65 beautifully furnished, large high-spec rooms and a perfect position amidst Istanbul's cultural attractions, the stylish Four Seasons is a perennial favourite.
Kubbeli Saloon Tea Lounge
An exception to the Fawlty Towers-esque feel that pervades the Pera Palace Hotel, the Patisserie and Terrace Bar are a charming option for a cake and slice of high Victorian grandeur.
Marmara Istanbul
Guests at the hotel receive free usage of facilities with day passes and monthly membership also available. Marmara Taksim also offers the full spa experience.
Pera Palace
Once a favourite of the rich and famous, the Pera Palace has history and anecdotal interest in spades. In its heyday the Palace hosted every visiting star and dignitary to Istanbul.
Süreyya Opera House
One of the city's most important opera houses on the shores of the Bosphorus...
Swissôtel Istanbul – The Bosphorus
A five star hotel of the traditional sort, the Swissôtel has fabulous views and unrivalled facilities. Whilst the rooms are spacious, the hotel lacks charm but if large scale marble is your thing, look no further. styl
