Kempinski Ciragan Palace
Kempinski Ciragan Palace
October November 2009 Istanbul Turkey Kempinski Ciragan Palace from water C?ragan Palace (Turkish: C?ragan Saray?), a former Ottoman palace, is now a five-star hotel of the Kempinski Hotels chain. It is located on the European shore of the Bosporus between Besiktas and Ortakoy in Istanbul, Turkey. The palace, built by Sultan Abdulaziz, was designed by the famous Armenian palace architect Nigogayos Balyan and constructed by his sons Sarkis and Hagop Balyan between 1863 and 1867. This was a period in which all Ottoman sultans used to build their own palaces rather than using those of their ancestors. C?ragan Palace is the last example of this period. The inner walls and the roof were made of wood, the outer walls of colorful marble. The palace is connected with a beautiful marble bridge to the Y?ld?z Palace on the hill behind. A very high garden wall protects the palace from the outer world. The construction and the interior decoration of the palace continued until 1872. After he moved in, Sultan Abdulaziz was, however, not able to live long in his magnificent palace. He was found dead in the palace on May 30, 1876, shortly after he was dethroned. His successor, his nephew Sultan Murad V, moved into C?ragan Palace, but reigned after only 93 days. He, who was deposed by his brother Abdulhamid II due to alleged mental illness, lived here under house arrest until his death on August 29, 1904. During the Second Constitutional Monarchy, Sultan Mehmet V Resat allowed the parliament to hold their meetings in this building. Only two months after, on January 19, 1910, a great fire destroyed the palace, leaving only the outer walls intact. Called "Seref Stad?", the place served for many years as a football stadium for the club Besiktas J.K.. In 1989, the ruined palace was bought by a Japanese corporation, which restored the palace and added a modern hotel complex next to it in its garden. Today, it serves as luxury suites for the five star Kempinski hotel along with two restaurants that cater to guests. The restoration of the Palace was considered a travesty by many, who criticized the government for allowing an independent company to restore a Turkish landmark at minimal cost and with absolutely no regard for the historical or architectural history of the building. The interior of the building was a very bright neon pink and contained several stores and areas for events such as banquets, many have criticized it for resembling the interior of an American shopping mall. The Palace was renovated again during the first quarter of 2007, now resembling the authentic palace with the baroqe style and soft colors. From Wikipedia

Descriptions of 132 castle and palace hotels in ten countries Austria, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Scotland, and Wales include the history of each, facilities and services available, activities and excursions in the area, facilities for children and disabled persons, a

Why spend your vacation in a boring hotel chain when you could be staying in a castle? It's not just a matter of opulence and splendor (not that there's anything wrong with a taste for grandeur)--there's history and romance, too. Want to experience the flavor of Scotland's past? You can sleep in Mary Queen of Scots' bedroom at Borthwick Castle and dine by candle and firelight in the rustic great hall. For a moderate fee you can stay in a 14th-century Portuguese Castle (Pousada de Dom Dinis) or a medieval French Castle (Domaine de Castel Novel)--with a history that includes the Hundred Years' War and the author Colette, who wrote several of her novels there---or splash out for a night in the Gritti Palace, a 15th-century Venetian doge's spread that's hosted the Aga Khan, Queen Elizabeth II, and Ernest Hemingway. Pamela Barrus introduces 132 schlosses, chateaux, paradors, and villas across Austria, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, and Great Britain, telling their history, describing rooms and grounds, and providing details such as rates, fax numbers, amenities, when they're open, and what else there might be to do nearby beyond lolling in the lap of luxury. --Stephanie Gold
