We stayed 4 nights and it was awesome. The attention was great. The restaurant in front the Bosphorus is great. I loved this hotel. If you go to Istanbul you need to stay in this hotel it makes your experience in Turkey an experience you will never forget.

This must surely be one of the world's chicest hotels... Just extraordinary. Even the standard courtyard view rooms are dramatically beautiful and the service immaculate. The flowers in the lobby say everything about the hotel and are a joy for the senses. Dining at Aqua is wonderful with a comprehensive well executed menu skilfully served by friendly professional staff. The... More

Had a fantastic four nights at the FS Bosphorus. My second visit there and if anything the standards are even better than the first time. We will be back! p.s. i thought the food and wine prices were very reasonable - especially compared to the Ciragan Palace. Standard of pool area food is MUCH better and about half the price.

Whether its hiring a launch to be collected from the front of the hotel and taken along the river... More

We enjoyed a blissful few days at this fabulous hotel. Beautiful setting by the bosphorus with the river traffic providing constant entertainment. Elegant and comfortable room. Very attractive staff who went out of their way to suggest restaurants for us and book private boat trips. Probably the best hotel I have ever visited. It will be a wrench to leave... More

We spent a day at the Four Seasons Bosphorous property although we were guests at the Sultanahment property. We were a party of six, all family members, ranging from age 75 to age 3. We rented a private yacht for a Bosphorous cruise through the hotel and planned an outdoor lunch and an afternoon of swimming. Upon returning from the... More

Travelling solo for once I stayed here twice in August 2014, for one night en route to Cunda Island on the Aegean Coast and for four nights on my return journey. On both occasions I was fortunate to be upgraded which certainly enhanced my stays. On the first occasion I was put in a deluxe room in the South wing... More

This hotel is perfect, even the standard rooms provide luxury I require. The only thing which is not in line is dining the quality of food is lacking 7,5 out of 10 I'm a world traveller and an outstanding hotel like this needs to improve it's a la carte dining quality. The breakfast fulfilled my expectations. A definite recommendation for... More

One of the most fabulous locations and urban hotels I've ever seen. We rested at this grand dame of hotels between excursions to the eastern part of Turkey, met interesting people and saw unusual sights. A must for anyone wanting to enjoy a luxurious respit in an ultra-historic city.

Stayed for 3 or 4 nights in July. It was during Ramadan - So the hotel had a very impressive and delicious buffet outside in the evenings.
