Sitting on a rocking bench on the stone paved deck by the Bosphorus river at the Four Season hotel, was a moment that is etched in my mind. The torches gave the the cool night a soft glow. We gazed at the twinkling lights on the hills on the other side of the river, with a glass of wine in hand, and thought what a magical place.
Everything is great about the hotel. The room, facilities and services are what you would expect at a Four Seasons hotel. The food was terrific. One of the best features is the big sparking pool by the Bosphorus river.
The hotel is located outside the core of the old city where most of the tourist sights are. To us, the serenity you gain by staying here outweighs the 20 minute car ride into the old city, which never bothered us.
