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.

I stayed at the Four Seasons 25th-29th August with my partner. The hotel is magnificent in every way - nothing is too much trouble for the staff , the rooms are beautiful as are the gardens , pools and restaurants . 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

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. The food in the hotel in general was very good everywhere we tasted it. The swimming pool was very nice as well. But in general I was personally quite disappointed, or perhaps not... More

I always like staying at the Four Seasons because they hire the best people. Amazing customer service in all respects. Concierge Superbly handled my reservation with a hammam prior to arrival. When I phoned them upon arrival at the airport that maybe I won't have enough time to check in at the Bosphorus then make my appointment by the Old... More
