We stayed at the 4 seasons Sultanamet earlier in our trip and they had some of our luggage sent directly to our room at the Four Seasons Bosporus. As they mentioned on check-in, the other hotel was a prison, this was a palace. A much larger and more beautiful hotel right on the Bosporus, also much more expensive. During Ramadan... More

I can't say enough about the view, it is amazing, just by the sea. But it is the whole experience I am talking about. I visited a lot of hotels not just in Turkey, but around the world, and I have not experienced a stay like this. The staff is excellent, you wonder where did they come from, their priority... More

I have visited almost all the five stars hotels in Istanbul and I can definitely say that this is the best one. Location is the upmost advantage, but there are several other hotels along the Bosphorus. Luxurious design is temptating, but there are many such examples, sometimes even exaggerating too much to be classified as tasteless. So I believe that,... More

We stayed in both the Four Seasons Hotels. We did it by accident but would now recommend it. The Bospherous has a big swimming pool and terrace right on the water and you can really enjoy the space and the views of the Asian side of Istanbul and the food is good service excellent. The hotel is new but built... More

This hotel takes service to the next level, and is sited right on the Bosphorus. The security is first class. Fitness center, helpful staff, and well appointed rooms. Every necessity has been carefully considered and implemented.

The Four Seasons at first glance , seemed like the " poor cousin " to the Kempinski which neighbors this hotel on the Bosphorous . . Although the staff were very friendly and attentive , the whole hotel seemed in need of a bit of an upgrade . Small details like table linen , music etc need refreshing . The... More

Comfortable hotel and the staff are very friendly and informative. The rooms on the water side offer a spectacular view of the harbour a day sunrise. The pool and spa are an added bonus. A Turkish Bath is available for an extra cost. The shopping mall across the street is convenient for groceries, clothing and restaurants. This area appears safe.... More

Like most Four Season Hotel locations, this is a lovely hotel. What makes this one particularly nice were the staff, who are charming and helpful without any attitude. The grounds are lovely and they have every amenity you could possibly need. One note is that they often charged higher prices than posted (particularly for spa services and food/drink in their...

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.
