I was at the Ciragan Palace for a wedding last week. The hotel is lovely and I can't say enough about the staff. As I was getting ready for the wedding, the zipper on my formal dress broke and I had no alternative. Luckily a quick thinking staff member contacted the hotel's tailoring department and the tailor immediately whisked up to my room to help repair my dress. It was all done quickly and discreetly and I had no problem getting to the wedding on time. As to the rooms, they are very comfortable and well appointed. I would suggest asking for one that is not on the front, as the street in front of the hotel is quite busy and noisy all night (and of course the call to prayer comes early in the morning).
As a Kempinksi, the hotel is very expensive and I agree that the breakfast, in particular, is very expensive. My experience is, though, that you get what you pay for, and I can't think of another hotel where I've had such a great experience with the staff.
