Lovely rooms, attentive staff, excellent pool area and well equipped gym. The only downside is that it is away from the old city but sitting enjoying a refreshing glass of local wine at the edge of the Bosphorus makes up or it.

The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Amazing attention to detail. True quality. A very special hotel in a very special location. Try using the water taxis to get about. Worth every penny and great fun. Much quicker than taxicabs at rush hour.

Room Tip: Palace rooms are beautiful and worth the price. A Bosphorous view would be lovely but an expensive l...

My second stay in 90 days and truly one of the best hotels I have stayed globally when it comes to personal service! The team head by the Hotel Manager Nihat Yucel have attention to detail on their mind. As a returning guest they are sure to remember your preferences and make sure your stay is personalised. Nazli Irem the front desk Manger stayed a few hours after her shift was over to welcome me back. This personalized attention to deatil and guest relations is rare these days.

The morning breakfeast on the teracce with the stunning view ofthe Bosphorus, the beautiful grounds and the amazing pools and spa make this property truly special in a busy city like Istanbul.

Make sure to take a water taxi from the hotel dock to a dining venue of your choice for a stunning experience on the Bosphorous. You can't go wrong withtis property if you are looking for a special experience and cost is not a factor. Dream of returning soon.

Room Tip: Select a room in the Pacalce building with a viewof the Bosphorous.

The Four Seasons at the Bosphorus is a great way to start your journey in Turkey if Istanbul is your first stop. The staff, rooms, ambiance are second to none. Not "old world Ottoman" like the Palace down the river, but Turkish in its own way. You get a real feel for life on the Bosphorus and a spectacular day and evening view. If you have some down time, the pool and its staff are wonderful, but certainly at least take a look at their spa. Incredible.

Comfort and character! Perfect location, too. This hotel was once a prison (listen closely and you can almost hear ghostly chains rattling.) But expect a marvelous stay when you're here. I was greeted with personalized stationary on my desk. Perfect for notes back home. Sophia's church/museum, gardens and the Mosque overlooking two continents within walking distance. Be sure and visit the Topkopi museum to see the biggest jewels in the world.

We spent 2 nights at the Four Seasons and we were not disappointed, the hotel has genuine 5 star ambience and very luxurious. The location is a little out of the way but is more than made up by the stunning views of the Bosphorus. We stayed during Eid and although it was full it didn't feel crowded and the staff seemed to cope well enough. There was also a wedding but it didn't take over the hotel, the ambience was still quite peaceful and relaxed + music wasn't that loud and was turned down at 12am, so didn't affect our stay. The service could be a little on the slow side but generally we were satisfied and found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. The room was luxurious and of the highest quality, a mixture of traditional turkish and contemporary decor, fittings and fixtures of a very high standard (you will not be disappointed) only complaint, is the shower fittings felt a bit 3 star and wasn't particularly powerful The food was good without being exceptional but the breakfast was excellent. We did have some house keeping issues but the management dealt with them professionally. We didn't use the outdoor pool as we made the most of the Spa which is excellent, the quality and treatments we received were in keeping with the rest of the hotel. We did stroll around the pool briefly and we thought it was of a high standard with world class views, it seemed relatively relaxed despite having a number of children around, in our experience FS are very family friendly so expect to see children having fun! We loved the relaxed luxurious feel about the hotel, superb quality and attention to detail. We stay in top 5 star hotels around the world including FS and this hotel is up there , we think they do need to improve the restaurant food and this was the FIRST time we had to open the door ourselves on arrival at a FS hotel! However, the friendly and efficient check in staff made up for our surprise and disappointment, they were excellent. Would we recommend this hotel? Definitely, we saw people on business, couples and families, all seemed to be enjoying themselves. It's a superb hotel, food could be better and you might sometimes feel the service is slow or staff a bit on the serious side. In our experience, the only place on this earth you'll find perfect service and staff are the 5 star hotels in Thailand.

Room Tip: The Bosphorus view rooms are very very expensive, if they are out of your budget, go for the hotel g...
