Shangri-La: an ultra-luxe palace

palace hotel

The latest arrival among the palaces of Istanbul, the Shangri-La, housed in a 1930s building, faces the Bosphorus. The quality of service is outstanding.

It is a feeling of extreme refinement that will embrace you when you first arrive at the hotel, stand before the splendour of the oriental decor, and encounter the very hospitable and caring staff. It is also a sense of grandeur that you feel at the sight of the imposing staircase topped by a glittering chandelier, which is reminiscent of the nearby Dolmabahçe Palace.

Equally gorgeous decor can be found in the two restaurants, the bar, and the spa of this temple of luxury. The 50-square-metre rooms are classically decorated in whites, greys, and blues that blend well with the colours of the Bosporus, which is visible from almost every window. Simply pull back the curtains to plunge your gaze onto the shores of the two continents and the spectacular panoramic view from the Topkapi Palace to the Sea of Marmara. A simply unforgettable setting.
