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

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

This was my first stay at a FS and I was not terribly impressed. After two days I was fed up with paying almost $1,000/night to not have a superb experience and I switched to the Sultanahmet, which so far is fantastic. I had a Palace Courtyard room on the 1st floor (2nd floor to us North Americans). Aside from... More

As all Four Seasons worldwide that I have had the pleasure to stay, I am never disappointed. The location was superb from the perspective of direct views of the Bosphorus. The interior amenities and service were all impeccable. The pool and restaurants are situated outside and have direct views of the Bosphorus and you can only imagine how fascinating it... More

We stayed here for 2 days on our way to Africa and really enjoyed our time. The hotel (old palace) is stunning and the location on the Bosphorus is fantastic. It is a 20 min drive to the old city (traffic can be pretty bad in Istanbul) or a quick water taxi ride across the water (highly recommended). We spent... More

We stayed 3 nights and wished we stayed longer. Where do i even begin? Everything was just seamless, from the time we checked in to the time we left. The hotel is located by the waterfront, along the Bosphorus. Although not near most tourisy sites, we liked that it was away from the hustle of the old city. And the... More
