Spent 2 night weekend in this amazing hotel. Location is outstanding, right in the Bosphorus. Gardens, pool, Terence all facing the water giving a relaxed atmosphere in this busy city. We booked a courtyard (which is actually the hotel entrance) room. No particular or exciting views, but you have enough places at the hotel to enjoy the view, so not... More

Stayed here on my last 3 nights in Turkey after 6 days at the Sultanahmet area and what a beautiful place to end my experience in Istanbul! The service provided by the hotel is excellent and I felt so pampered. The layout of the building by the Bosphorus itself is spectacular & it is a 10 minute walking distance to... More

My husband and I just spent 5 nights in Istanbul which was an overall great experience. After looking at various hotels before booking we chose the Four Seasons at the Bosphorus which was a hit. A lovely large room and bathroom, very nice and service minded staff all through. They had a great terrace overlooking the busy Bosphorus where we... More

My husband and our baby stayed for 4 nights and loved this hotel. Aside from the incredible building and grounds, the elegant interiors and the abundance of incredible food, the stand out feature of the Four Seasons is the genuine welcoming and engaging staff and the exceptional customer service.

You can never go wrong with the Four Seasons. The receptionist was very welcoming and checked us in our rooms early and quickly, the room was spacious always serviced and cleaned. The breakfast buffet was also great and the views of the Bosphorus were breathtaking ! We also got to use the hotel facilities which were very impressive - the... More

We stayed 2 nights at FS Bosphorus in a 'Palace Bosphorus Room'. Airport transfer was arranged by the Concierge at 190 Eur. It took roughly 45 minutes to reach the hotel. Our reservation was made through Amex FHR/ Centurion program which includes upgrade upon availability. But we were offered a 'paying' upgrade to a small suite in the modern wing.... More

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
