Rooms are nice and the hotel's condition is very good. The services are good and the you feel comfortable staying in the hotel. I have expected better experience. The Taxis services at the hotel are as bad as the taxis services across Turkey.

My girlfriend and I decided to stay at this hotel for our honeymoon and everybody was fantastic. To name a few of the staff that made our stay amazing -- Mr. Sezair Erdoğan who was there from start to finish making sure everything was taken care of. Mr. Sercan Aslan who runs a tight ship at the pool, making it... More

My family held an event there in the ballroom when we stayed this August. It was just perfection. I regret that I started my trip at another hotel.. I should have stayed here from minute 1. You can not get a better hotel in this Bosphorus sided part of Istanbul! Instead of reviewing the room I will just say that... More

This is an over the top hotel. There is no need to expand on the property, the rooms, the service.etc...it is over the top, luxurious and beautiful, I cannot find any flaw! The staff went the extra mile to make us happy. We loved the breakfast: where else can you have a nice view over Asia while sitting in Europe... More

This is the best luxury hotel in Istanbul. Period. Its way better than its neighbour -Kempinski, where we did go for dinner, which was amazing - but hotel wise, FS wins. The pool, boat service, hookah bar and the spa are worth checking out!

We spent around a week in Istanbul and we would say without hesitation that the FS property on the Bosphorus was jaw dropping and a flawless hotel. The service is immaculate and the facilities are par none-the spa was perhaps the finest I've seen and the Bosphorus views are priceless. If you are a newcomer to Istanbul and only staying... More

Every staff is nice and memorable, many activities can be conducted in the hotel, the place that you can stay comfort in the city. Less food choice and far away to the city. I love this hotel so much, i forgot the name of outstanding staff.

What can we say about the Four Seasons Istanbul at the Bosphorus that has not been said before ? Probably nothing. But let's share our experience. In a nutshell : - The Four Seasons Bosphorus is not a simple luxury hotel. It belongs to this category of hotels that define the destination. It's probably the most expensive hotel in Istanbul,...

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
