Four Seasons Istanbul at the Bosphorus
Ranked #40 of 1,171 Hotels in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2013

I won't take your time to explain anything about this hotel because whatever I tell, It is not enough to explain how I am thrilled. You should visit and feel the perfection. Even If you are not a hotel guest, please stop by for a coffee or a couple of drinks at the Aqua. Your experience with FS at the Bosphorus will be beyond anything expected from a hotel. Congratulations on having an excellent hotel like this..

Room Tip: Bosphorus view is a must.

Had the pleasure of staying here for alas, one night only. From the moment you arrive, you're whisked into another world. The service is impeccable, the rooms spacious and luxurious, and the location on the Bosphorus just beautiful. Rooms are furnished to a high standard with attention paid to the smallest detail. The bathroom is especially nice. The hotel is a short walk to the lively district of Ortakoy, but not ideally situated for sightseeing in the Old City. As it is, it's far too tempting to just remain at the hotel rather than venture out and see the great city of Istanbul!

We stayed here for three nights in the Palace rooms, and whilst expensive the view over the Bosphorous is amazing. The staff were unfailingly helpful and the hotel restaurant is superb. It is located close to the major tourist attractions though be prepared for the traffic.

this hotel is absolutely breathtaking. We stayed here twice before and will most certainly come back again. the rooms are extremely clean, staff is very helpful and polite. We are not huge fans of turkish food in general but the food at the hotel is very good. It is a quite expensive hotel but absolutely worth it.

Excellent service and attention to detail from the start. For the kids, at check-in they were given toys and during their stay the bed sheets were changed to reflect their age (princesses/disney).

For the grown up the outside seating area overlooking the Bosphorus, both indoor and outdoor pool and spa were just magical.
