I'm giving a three star rating because of the very nice facilities and the staff very willing to please. Unfortunately the hotel is located between the Bosphorus and a very noisy and busy road. While the view from the hotel's terrace in the evening is magnificent, you won't remember any of it at 5 AM when the street starts getting... More

Wonderful addition to Four Seasons chain of hotels! In the past we had stayed in the FS's Sultanahmet location, which was also great, but it was renovated building that used to be a jail, which had an eeriness all its own. This one is a very elegant 'petit palais', if you expect the most gorgeous of Bosphorus views, comfortable beds,... More

One of the world's best hotels. Excellent views, food, accommodations and staff. The hotel's design was tasteful and elegant. We felt welcome and comfortable the entire time. Can't imagine staying elsewhere in Istanbul for the price. Not cheap. Incredible.

Amazing staff and facilities.... True definition of the four seasons brand.... Was there to attend a concert by the great Taksim trio and wanted to relax after some hectic personal issues and I have chosen the perfect place to do that ... I have spoiled myself in the right place .... Thank you to the friendliest staff

I wanna keep it short and simple. This place is purely a delight. The service of highest class, almost as if they read your mind. The breakfast buffet a superlative experience. The location, views,spa, interiors, comfort and amenities leave very little to wish for. The boat is a good alternative way of escaping the traffic. What a splendid experience staying... More

We went for a 4 night break in Istanbul and actually booked this hotel in error; it appears that there is another Four Seasons hotel in the old part of town very near to the Blue Mosque etc. However, we were delighted with this choice which is right on the banks of the Bosphoros and has stunning views.
