Finally got around to writing this review - we stayed 4 days in June. First time we visited Istanbul so we arranged in advance through the four seasons to be picked up from the airport. We could not find the driver when we got through the customs area. It was a mess and we almost ended up with some rip-off car service so I would strongly recomend that the hotel has some better way of locating their guest when they arive. After we finally found our car and driver, things went a bit better!
We were tired from the long flight and the airport issues and the first room that we were shown just didn't get it! It was dark and at the back of the property, the windows looked out over a "dig" - I called it a constructions site! And there was some kind of noise making machinerey that drove me nuts all night! I insisted that they find us a better room the next day or we would check out! FINALLY we "made a deal" and ended up with the Presidential Suite! It ended up costing us about double our regular room rate but it made up for some of the issues, I guess?!
The location of the property is great - all of the other reviews have already covered that. You can walk to most of the sites that you will want to see. One caveat though is when ever and where ever you walk people pester you trying to sell you rugs and other crap! Like a mexican beach on steriods!
The restauant is nothing special.
Common areas are well kept, the courtyard is beautiful.
