    We spent 4 nights at this hotel on our first trip to Istanbul. We chose the Bosphorus over their other hotel in the city centre so we could have some time to rest and escape after a day in the thick of it. Although we were happy with our choice you should be aware that you will end up taking... More

    Great hotel,as most four seasons are.The only small problem was the wi-fi,you are allowed to have only one device for free and then,for every other device you have to pay,(22 euros/day),but the problem is not the 22 euros,the problem is that it's not very sufficient,I might even say that the free wi-fi was more sufficient than the one you have...

    I spend alot of money on hotels. A $1000 a night is expensive but acceptsble if the hotel is worth it. At this hotel you need to have a view of the bosphorous, otherwise the awesomeness of the location is missed. But unless you are a sheik, it may be difficult. I have stsyed here five times and upgraded or... More

    I saw as many people take photographs of the hotel itself, as of the amazing views over the Bosphorus! I stayed in wing 2 which offered views over the Bosphorus and Sultanahmed. The Bosphorus view rooms have a wonderful seating area which offers views and relaxation. Ask for those. The hotel is beautifully appointed and well maintained. Check in was... More

    The high standard that you expect with Four Seasons hotels. The lounges and bar areas are luxurious, comfortable and sophisticated and all look onto the hotel grounds on the Bosphorus. The rooms were up to scratch: spacious, modernised with everything you'd expect. Only the beds weren't the larger king size that I've had in other Four Seasons hotels, but still... More

    This stay at the Four Seasons was almost unreal!! We did a couples Hammam and it was one of the best experiences we have had at a spa anywhere. The indoor pool/hot tub area is beautiful and the sauna/steam room & relaxation areas are also ideal. You truly feel like royalty when you are there and the staff is what... More

    We stayed for 3 nights. Our visit to Istanbul and so glad we decided to stay at the Bosphorus. Our first evening we had dinner on the terrace, it was a bit chilly, but we had heaters and shawls to keep warm. A lovely introduction to the city. We had breakfast each morning on the terrace also and had the... More

    We had desert wine accompanied with deserts in this hotel. The choice of deserts good and the desert wine was superb. The service was beyond excellence whereby the team ensured our comfort. Finally we had a cup of turkish tea which was good too.
