Tired touring mosques and bargaining at souvenir stores, we popped into the Fours Seasons for a well deserved lunch. It was an oasis of calm and luxury. The garden was green and beautiful. Our food was delicious. We ate in the garden; we were thoughtfully provided shawls as the day was sunny but still cold. It was an expensive experience... More

Four Seasons Sultanahmet is located in the heart of the old city, offering the best access to historical exploration of Istanbul. * Many of the iconic locations are within walking distance (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Citerns, Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace.) Cisterns were magical and most underrated. * Hotel has one of the best rooftop bar/lounges. 360 view of bosphorus, old... More

This hotel is an oasis in Sultanahmet, whose location can not be beat. The doormen know your name on arrival. Stepping through the doors alone is a pleasure. The concierges were great with everything from travel cards to restaurant reservations. I got a much-appreciated early check-in from the front desk. The room and bathroom were sumptuous with stylish Turkish touches.... More

The Four Seasons Hotel in Sultanahmet is located within walking distance to the main tourist attractions such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Topkapi Palace. It was a prison until the 80s, before being converted to a hotel in 90s. The basic structure of the prison remains eg it is square with a quadrangle in the middle – there... More

Great small hotel feel with legendary Four Seasons service. Our room was great and we loved being able to walk to the historical sites. We walked all along the Bosphorus to the other Four Seasons ... It has a wonderful waterfront location and more of a luxe feel, but we preferred the Sultanahmet location and vibe.

The Ararat Hotel is ideally located in the historical centre of Sultanahmet, within walking distance to most of the historical monuments and museums of Istanbul. The rooms are beautifully decorated, some with stunning views of the great mosque of Sultanahmet, and the rooftop breakfast room has uninterrupted views to both the mosque, on one side, and the Marmara Sea to...

The hotel is the perfect location for visiting the historic sights in Istanbul. If you want a pool and to be on the water then the other Four Seasons works for that. The Sultanahmet was originally a prison so the hotel has a lot of charm. The rooms are very nice but be warned that we could hear the call... More

The Four Seasons accommodations and staff were absolutely wonderful. You will be awakened at o'dark thirty for the call to prayer which has its own beauty but one should be prepared for this event ahead of time. Someone was kind enough to provide us a translation of what the call to prayer said and it was a warm welcoming invitation... More

I was here on Valentine's Day and again in May. The location is incredible in Sultanhamet. My first stay we had a room with an awesome little balcony with a view of one of the massive mosques surrounding the hotel. This was particularly cool when the prayers played throughout the city. Give the hotel is a converted prison, it has... More
