“Wonderful oasis of luxury and service. Restaurant was a bit pricey but the overall stay was 10/10”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

A wonderful oasis of luxury and service.
Location was excellent within easy reach of the city, restaurants and attractions.
The hotel is not surrounded by any particularly noisy streets or neighbours and we enjoyed an excellent sleep.
Staff service and facilities were excellent.
One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.

Our flight arrived quite early and we were at the hotel before 8:00 am. They gave us the room immediately and we had tea, fruit and buscuits awaiting us. The staff was helpful, and just very, very nice.

This is what a Five-Star hotel should be. The decor is beautiful. The flowers add the finishing touches. We were always greeted with a warm friendly smile and hello from the entire staff. They went above and beyond for our six year old daughter. She felt like the Princess of the hotel. The rooms are spacious and bathrooms have all the luxuries needed including a TV!
I recommend a corner room overlooking the Aya Sofia. The location is walking distance to explore all the major sites.
We hope to return to this wonderful hotel soon!

Room Tip: Corner room overlooking Aya Sofia.

When my sister and I decided to take a mini vacation together in Europe , it was very challenging trying to figure out the best place, hotel, climate, etc. that would meet our needs.

Having been to many Four Season properties , my dream was to visit the prison in Istanbul, as I found the pictures mysteriously enchanting , and I knew that the level of attention and service that the Four Seasons is known for , would only surpass whatever beauty the hotel had offered.

But our visit proved to be an experience that went above and beyond our wildest expectations, and for three days my sister and I were treated like Royalty! The staff at the Four Seasons could not have been lovelier, and our every wish was fulfilled. The aesthetics of the hotel are unsurpassed , and the rooms are fit for a king and queen, or in our case two princesses. The hotels concierge and hotel manager bent over backwards to make our stay in this foreign and unique city feel like our second home. We were so sad to have left , and can not wait to return .

Thank you for the priceless memories that have set the bar so high for our next adventure. We never wanted to escape the prison!!!

The owners did a fabulous job redoing the old prison featured in Midnight Express and obviously excorcised any ghosts of its tortuous past.
For my first few days of my first trip to Istanbul the location was perfect. Had a second floor room looking doqwn on Best Kebab whos friendly staff ke[pt chatting with us as wwe looked out the window.
The room had huge and well appointed, and gave what I hoped to be a "turkish" flair to the comfort Four Seasons always provided.
GReat location to visit Haga Sophia and environs. Great old streets to wander.
Roof top bar a must to watch night all and feel the history.
Their staff ferried us to the Bosphorus which gave us another side ot our most memorable. Istanbul experience

This is one first class hotel in the old city! The place is absolutely beautiful-actually a renovated prison. We were upgraded to the"warden's office" which was a spacious, two level suite with steam and all. The views from the rooftop are magnificent-Blue Mosque, etc. The restaurant breakfast buffet is great, The service is typical Four Seasons quality. The location is peaceful with lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Loved it!

Room Tip: Ask for the Warden's Office-great, spacious suite!
