Four Seasons Istanbul at the Bosphorus

Hotel overall was wonderful. "Garden view" rooms a bit of a stretch in the discription - they overlook the bell hop stand and the front entrance. Rooms with Bosphorus view large, comfortable with wonderful views. Lounge inside and out, relaxing and beautiful. Would return in a heartbeat.

Location, location, location :), It was perfect as expected from a 4seasons. I have stayed several times in this Hotel, and, I can go back as many times as it is possible. I always select the Palace Rooms which is a historical part of the hotel not only the rooms are perfect but the rooms are on the edge of the Bosphorus. The service, hospitality, food +++++. The spa is outstanding. The only minus part can be the vale service. I use high end sport cars, when I got them back all the settings were played al least two times, I will use a cab next time :) Last travel was in winter 2014.

Room Tip: Palace section rooms.

Stayed for seven days - and didn't want to leave.
Perfect in every respect - the location is amazing, the staff very professional and attentive, small courtesies are second nature, the rooms and service are excellent. No request is too difficult.
Didn't experience the weddings that seem to upset some reviewers but maybe April isn't wedding season in Istanbul.

The hotel was absolute perfection. The only complaint I could possibly have was that the refrigerator was stacked with beer and alcohol and mixers like red bull and juices. It left no room for drinks that I had bought while strolling through the town. The staff were the best I had ever seen. The location was perfect too. All the sights were within a few minutes on the water taxi which was to me such a cool thing to do. I loved every minute at this hotel. Their artwork and pottery is amazing. It was like living in a beautiful art gallery for a week.

Room Tip: We probably should have gotten the Bosphorous view room but we will know better for next time. The v...

Dear Patricio1970,

Thank you very much for sharing this post regarding your stay in March and for your kind comments.

I must say that I loved every word of your review, just like you loving every minute at the Hotel. I'm happy to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. It's absolutely a great idea to use the water taxi in Istanbul, an anjoyable and a hassle-free way of transportation. I also appreciate your comment on the refrigerator in the room and I shared it with my F&B Director right away.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family again in the nearest future...

Best regards from Istanbul,

Only seen this hotel from the main ballroom perspective as I never actually stayed here.
Its amaculate, staff are brilliant, concierge are fantastic, in fact I want to stay here, at some point in the future.
The views from the pool side are amazing, in fact breathtaking.
Is the location correct, who knows, it depends on what you want to do.
Thanks for making my brief experience one to remember.

Beautiful hotel. Wonderful service. But if you are visiting Istanbul I can see no reason why you would choose to stay somewhere that is a 25 min can ride away from Sultanhamet. If you like staying in your hotel then that's fine. But if you want to explore Istanbul this hotel is terribly inconvenient. Stay close to the old town

Dear KeeepTravelling,

Thank you very much for sharing this post regarding your business trip in April and for your kind comments on the service.

I'm sorry to hear that you were not happy with the location of the Hotel and we wish we could have known that you would prefer to be close to the main monuments. Kindly note that we have two properties in Istanbul and Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet is located at the heart of the Old Town, just at a 5-minute walking distance to the iconic landmarks of the city. We look forward to welcoming you at either of our properties during your next trips to Istanbul.
