After a long flight into Istanbul, our exhausted selves were nevertheless very much excited to see that we were staying in a luxury hotel with very thoughtful staff! As the staff were aware of our early departure, they had surprisingly prepared a take-away breakfast with coffee and a lovely souvenir to remember our great experience! To really impress us, they...

Its a Four Season so you know its going to be world class and this is no exception. The view of the Bosphorus is fantastic and the staff, service and rooms are all up to scratch.

Simply amazing on all levels. Whenever in Istanbul, this hotel is my choice. The palace rooms are with high ceiling , and great view on the the hotel entrance or the boshopurs ,never tried the court yard rooms. If you have time, the spa is a must do with their different options for treatments: One of the best in Istanbul!

The value for money spent is well worth it. Incredible staff and the experience over the top. The property is right on the Bosphorus and away from the rush of the city. Rooms are well appointed, great spa and fitness center too.

Very good experience. Very goo service! The location is fantastic on the Bosphorus! It lacks local charm and is too much like other Four Seasons properties. The food was excellent and the gym was very good but far away from the room.

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.
