Great location right on the Bosphorus, beautiful property with excellent rooms. Our stay during the month of July was filled with great service at this hotel. The staff was courteous and provided great service. Best part was the concierge desk, helped us get a guide who was wonderful, took us around the historical sites of the city. The concierge arranged dinner reservations at short notice as well helped with transportation and a boat ride on the Bosphorus right from the Hotels' dock. Would definitely pick this hotel if you want a mix of tourism and R&R. The spa experience of a Hamman bath is definitely worth trying out.

What a beautiful property. Don't miss the chance to stay here. On the beautiful Bosphorus with views that are spectacular when eating your breakfast, the service is beyond. We toured everyday, yes there is plenty of traffic,but the hotel location is well worth the traffic.
Our room was beautiful, large with a window seat facing the Bosphorus. Yes expensive, very but we felt pampered at every turn!

Great Hotel. Beautiful location on the Bosphorus. Breakfast buffet was amazing. The staff and service were top notch. We were there at the beginning of July and will go back sometime in the future. Very cool sitting out by the pool in Europe, while overlooking Asia, on the other side of the Bosphorus.

Room Tip: Our room over looked the courtyard. There must have been three or four weddings that weekend. My wif...

My husband and I were in Istanbul in February and had the good fortune to stay at the Four Seasons. The hotel is beautiful and the staff was amazing. The weather was cold and rainy, so we didnt have the opportunity to enjoy being right on the Bosphorus as much as we would have liked, but enjoyed our stay immensely.

We chose to stay there and relax before leaving on a cruise, and were never even tempted to leave the hotel. From their greeter at the airport to our drive to the ship, our visit was flawless.
The pool (on the Bosphorus) was fabulous, and the spa was wonderful. Our dinner waiter encouraged us to try Turkish wine (delicious) and foods, although they have a myriad of other choices. Our suite was beautifully appointed, with a window seat on the Bosphorus. We will definitely return for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the best view of the Bosphorus.

This is the thirt time in Istanbul, first at Conrad Hotel (very good), second at Radisson Blue Bosphorus(no pool ?!!), and now Four Seasons by the Bosphorus .
It is actually a palace, a piece of architecture. Beautiful.
The service is what stands out, as in all Four Seasons.
Everyone extremely kind as usual, always surprising you with many amenities at the right time and right place. They really select people that likes to serve (you don't see they acting smiles, or doing a favor).
The room is very good and the breakfast awsome, though you will probably will eat too much.

At night, we went to dinner and dance at Reina, the best dance place in town, by water taxi ! Fantastic experience, grab a "taxi" in front of a wonderful palace by the water and navigate through the Bosphoros under the ilumminated bridge and land at a huge and beautiful complex of restaurants and dance floor, thousands of happy people. Not bad ahh ? Don't hesitate, do it !

Then you have the city, breath taking, the world history is here, it makes Europe looks like an young continent.

Ah, don't miss the pools,the first the one by the Bosphorus and then the hot one in a beautiful spa area.

Have a great stay !
