The Four Seasons Bosphorus is a special hotel. The staff are first class and the setting on the river is incredible. The rooms are lovely and modern and of a great size. The pool area is beautiful and the food is excellent. Would definitely recommend staying here if looking for somewhere special in Istanbul.

I have stayed in some very lovely hotels, sometimes the 'best' isn't the nicest, or the most expensive what best suits... my problem here was that the expense of the room didn't really seem worth it... the hotel is gorgeous, the pool beautiful, which makes it that much more eggregious that the rooms were tired, tired, tired... spacious, but given...

After 3 nights in the Old City we came for 3 nights to the Four Seasons Bosphorus. The entire experience was unbelievable. The hotel, the setting and the grounds were beautiful and immaculate. Our room was beautiful and spacious. We looked out on the old school next to us but even that was fine. The staff was by far one... More

This was my first trip to Istanbul- my first overseas trip with my 14 month year old son too! My partner and I both run businesses and wanted an exotic getaway where we would be well taken care of. In short, the Four Seasons surpassed expectations and didn't disappoint!!! When we were deciding which of the hotels we wanted, there... More

We had the pleasure today, to enjoy a coffee and some desserts at this wonderful establishment. Sitting on the beautiful terrace overlooking the Bosporus was an experience on its own, meeting the most gracious and polite staff was also part of the fun. As soon as you enter the hotel, the person who welcomes you, and anyone on your way... More

The location of this gorgeous hotel is amazing- right on the Bosphorus! After sightseeing in hectic historic Istanbul, this is a calm, luxurious hotel to come back to! The staff are very helpful and the pool is amazing- you can watch the ships go by and wave to Asia from your lounge chair!

In a city of 23 million people, within minutes of the best things the city can offer, this hotel is an oasis of elegance, perfect service and absolute comfort. We debated between Ciragan, ShangriLa and Four Seasons and we ended up visiting all three: so glad of our choice! Ciragan is past its time, the pools are still spectacular in... More

This is a beautiful hotel and it is situated very close to the Hagia Sofia and The Blue Mosque. Our room was spacious and after long days of walking around the city, the roof terrace was a nice relaxing spot to have a drink, watch the sunset, and get some great photos of the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
