“As good as you would expect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

What you would expect from a Four Seasons city hotel. Very comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, more sophisticated and overall better quality evening meal than most that we had elsewhere (and although it felt expensive at the time, our experience elsewhere in Turkey later on indicated that it was not out of line). Very friendly and helpful staff and a turkey football shirt and "I love Istanbul" t-shirt in the rooms for our children, along with a quiz which entitled them to room service popcorn and made them feel very welcome.

This is probably one of the most impressive hotels I have had the pleasure of staying in. The rooms are exceptionally clean and well appointed and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. There are many cozy seating areas within the hotel lobby in which to relax. The courtyard gardens were lovely as was the rooftop garden. The staff kindly obliged our request to open the rooftop area even though it was closed due to cool weather, so that we could enjoy the view of this MOST AMAZING city.

The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of many of the most desirable sites within the historic city. I was extremely impressed with the cleanliness, ambiance and beauty of this facility. I highly recommend this exceptional hotel if you are traveling to Istanbul.

Perfect location, within walking distance to the Blue Mosque, the Haggia Sophia, Topaki Palace, Grand Bazaar, spice market, etc., we could have spent our entire 6 days exploring around the winding streets. Staff was very friendly and helpful, booked taxi's and instructed the drivers where to go as most cab drivers did not speak English. Loved exploring the surrounding sites and would highly recommend to couples as well as families.

Came here for Afternoon Tea on our last day in Istanbul and had a delicious feast! Three of us had the traditional afternoon tea, while one of us had the Turkish afternoon tea. All the sandwiches, pastries and scones were very tasty and you do receive a good amount. The surroundings were wonderfully peaceful and the gardens so pretty, we really had a fantastic afternoon.

Over all, not what you would expect from a Four Seasons Hotel in terms of rooms and hotel interior. The biggest advantage is the location. The hotel is just a walking distance to all major sights in Sultan Ahmed. Also, there's a lot of cafes and restaurants close-by.

The restaurant at the court yard is excellent. Food and service were great. You also need to have a drink or snack at the terrace on top floor. Do not miss it especially at times of good weather. You will have a nice view of Hagia Sophia.

This luxurious hotel is in the center of all the major attractions. From the moment you walk in the doors to the time you sit down for dinner, the entire staff is friendly, helpful and professional. The rooms lack nothing, the are fairly large considering the history of the building. It was like staying in a museum. I just can't say enough good things about my visit. I hope I get to experience it again!

Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet is luxury without pretension. The hotel is welcoming and elegant with lovely salons, a bar and divine restaurant. The views from guest rooms are magnificent. Had it not been raining, we would have enjoyed coffee on one of two balconies and overlooked some of the historical sites of Istanbul. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the gazebo and were delighted with the choices and charming wait staff. The spacious guest rooms are fitted with luxury amenities and windows that open to hear the otherworldly prayer calls.
