Amazing hotel... Fantastic service, food, rooms, spa, restaurant.... By any analysis it is a fantastic hotel. I totally recommend. Just came back from Istambul for a short 3 days trip. Staying at the Bosphorus was really good, better than in the historical city (our initial idea), because it is really beautiful and close to the best restaurants of the city.... More

Is asked where in Istanbul, once should reply: nothing less than Four Seasons Hotel at The Bosphorus. Await a great staff to recognize you each and every time you walk through the door. With my great surprise the head barman remembered me and a talk we've had back in 2011. Rooms are great with lots of working space. Loved the... More

Hotel overall was wonderful. "Garden view" rooms a bit of a stretch in the discription - they overlook the bell hop stand and the front entrance. Rooms with Bosphorus view large, comfortable with wonderful views. Lounge inside and out, relaxing and beautiful. Would return in a heartbeat.

Stayed for seven days - and didn't want to leave. Perfect in every respect - the location is amazing, the staff very professional and attentive, small courtesies are second nature, the rooms and service are excellent. No request is too difficult. Didn't experience the weddings that seem to upset some reviewers but maybe April isn't wedding season in Istanbul.

The hotel was absolute perfection. The only complaint I could possibly have was that the refrigerator was stacked with beer and alcohol and mixers like red bull and juices. It left no room for drinks that I had bought while strolling through the town. The staff were the best I had ever seen. The location was perfect too. All the... More

Beautiful hotel. Wonderful service. But if you are visiting Istanbul I can see no reason why you would choose to stay somewhere that is a 25 min can ride away from Sultanhamet. If you like staying in your hotel then that's fine. But if you want to explore Istanbul this hotel is terribly inconvenient. Stay close to the old town
