I will be traveling to Turkey for my honeymoon in July. For Istanbul, we are deciding between both Four Seasons (although they're slightly out of the budget) and Hotel Amira.
While we like the luxury aspect of the Four Seasons, I hear mixed reviews about the Bosphorus. and,if we're going to splurge, I want it to be worthwhile. Regarding boutique hotels, we like the local feel of them compared to the Four Seasons. I feel like we won't get the local flavor staying at a Four Seasons hotel. ie - the complimentary breakfasts, service, etc. Does anyone have feedback on either Four Seasons or the Amira or perhaps a different hotel I may not have mentioned?
I've already looked at many (Istanbul Edition, Sultania, White House, Witt Istanbul Suites, etc)
thanks in advance!
