This is arguably the best hotel in Istanbul, prime location at the central location in Bosphorus, exceptional Bosphorus facing terrace , amazing outdoor heated pool and indoor facilities. Gym is spacious with new Technogym equipment, Spa is pricey as you may expect from FS but with space and attention to detail. There is only one restaurant in the hotel - fantastic outdoor facilities for the right season- might be otherwise limited - but plenty of options with 10 min ride - or even a highly recommended sea taxi. It makes a big difference to have a Bosphorus - front facing room- quite limited in the hotel - or face the southern side hall overlooking direction of topkapi palace/ pool. Careful with the busy schedule of various weddings / events in the hotel if you are looking for a quiet getaway. Try to avoid rooms facing back- street side , might get a little noisy- despite good isolation.

Stayed: August 2013

We stayed for 2 nights at the Four Seasons Hotel at the Bosphorus, we were delighted with the quality of the room and the level of service. We booked a mid range room and it was excellent - large and well appointed. Prices for good quality wine in the bar were not expensive compared to other 5 star hotels we have stayed in. We requested a late check out and this was not a problem at all even though the hotel was very busy. The staff were delightful

Room Tip: we had a room overlooking the front of the hotel which was priced much more favorably than a river facing room - we could still see the Bosphorus and it was a great size. We were pleased we chose this room.

Fantastic location, the hotel is located on the shore of the Bosporus. We had an afternoon tea at the terrace with some snacks. It has a wonderful garden with a fountain in the middle, sunny with birds singing that gives a sweet atmosphere, not to mention the view of the ASian side of Istanbul and the passing boats on the Bosporus. Very quite and pleasant area. Good both for business and leisure time. The service is excellent, every small detail is on the right place with a perfect decoration, just as you would expect from the Fourseasons. Big variety of tea selection, cakes and further more the restaurant offers a fantastic gastronomical journey.

Truly authentic Turkish experience catered to European preference by the hotel staff and restaurant team! Food was excellent, view of the Bosphorus was amazing, concierge made excellent recommendations and hotel staff performed more like tour guides ensuring the entire experience exceeded expectations! Highly recommend this hotel and restaurant!

Luxurious!!! I had such a wonderful stay. The room was beautiful, bed was comfy. Service was excellent and staff were nice and helpful. It houses one of the best gyms I have ever been in any hotels. The swimming pool / spa area was serene. Breakfast was great and the bar makes nice drinks. It was too bad we stayed in winter as the outdoor terrace and pool must be really fun to enjoyed in summer.

Room Tip: ask for a room with the view of Bosphorus corner rooms near street might bring you occasional traffic honks
