Dolmabahce Palace, Istanbul Reviews - Write a Review

  • Do not skip any part of the palace complex, you won't regret it. I don't see why some visitors have troubles with guides. Individual visits are allowed. The stairs itself on the entrance to the palace are divided into two rows: for groups and individuals. There are audio guides provided for each person for free in exchange of ID card deposit. List of available languages is really huge, information is detailed and very interesting. So just get an audio guide and have a pleasure of exploring the palace and parks with your own speed. I dropped 1 star because the crystal pavilion was closed at the time of my visit without any warning or mentioning at the ticket office.

  • Dolmabahçe palace is really amazing, beautiful architectural and historical master piece located at the bank of Bosphorus. It tells to story of luxury, power, authority and influence sultan were used to enjoy in their time. As the palace is huge n requires a lot of time, energy to witness the glory of golden ears of Turkey during Ottoman empire, so it is recommended to hire professional guide to avoid long ques, as well as keep a stock of water with some snacks if you are visiting it during summers. Must visit place. Highly recommended.

  • A great place to visit. I think the management should allow photography without using flash. inside the palace only guided tour is allowed. so make sure you catch up on tour time. Best time to visit and avoid long lines is early morning. Palace opens around 9AM. if you are staying close to Blue mosque area, just take a train toward Kabatas which is the last station and walk toward Palace. Less expensive to move around. Do not forget to see the photo gallery.

  • We had a chance to see the palace overview when we were on our way to princes' islands. The Dolmabahce Palace is one of the most beautiful places we have visited in Istanbul. The entrance fee for the whole sections in the palace is 60TL. It is totally worth visit, so do not miss this place in your trip to Istanbul.

  • fantastic palace. nice view of sea. I wish there was a free guide to explain about the palace and its history regarding to the expensive tickets!
