“A worthwhile splurge”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

We stayed at the Four Seasons Sultanamet 5 years but it was full so we decided to try this one. Amazing view of the Bosphorus. Staff and service levels were typical of Four Seasons. Since we arrived late at night, we had dinner at the Aqua Restaurant. Service was prompt and food was excellent. They have two pools but I used the indoor pool as it was rather cold.

Room Tip: Would prefer to stay on the same side as to where the spa is, otherwise, one has to walk through the...

Newly refurbished to a very high quality and done with taste - the bathrooms are particularly impressive and easily the best I've come across at any hotel, including the Plaza Athenee Paris, which came close. Views across from the Bosphorus are stunning, though if your plan is to do the Istanbul sites, then you are not particularly close and will be at the mercy of the traffic. Absolutely world class spa. Very high quality service, particularly from the concierge.

Amazing location by the waterfront. Staff & service levels are fantastic! Love the Four Seasons Hotel. Great attention to detail and we loved the little things the hotel did to make us feel special. Lovely food throughout the hotel & room service was wonderful. The Concierge was extremely helpful.

The location on the Bosphorus is amazing as are the grounds, the terrace and swimming pool area.We recommend a room in the palace section of the hotel, even a garden view room is very nice, with beautiful high ceilings. Marble bathrooms are impressive. Very kind and attentive staff.

After a poor Istanbul hotel experience we decided to give a try to Four Seasons. At this Hotel you get what you expect from the chain: excellent location just by the Bosphorus with an esplendid terrace. Nice rooms, service at high standards and a nice retsurant. The food is somehow of a slighty lower quality that some other hotels, but is over average for the poor Istanbul standards.

First class hotel with warm and friendly staff who made my trip memorable. Location is a little away from the tourist centers. Breakfast was wonderful - food, ambiance and staff - all excellent. I would go back in a second. Some minor quibless about my room being dark.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor with view of water.
