We spent several nights at the Four Seasons Sultanahmet, but Bosporus is an Apple and Orange comparison.
A much larger overall facility directly ON the Bosporus. City–centered, versus Sultanahmet’s more, Old Town and more subdued feeling. The hotel has a more “urban” attitude than Sultanahmet, but that IS NOT a bad thing … just a preference choice.
Bosporus has its various bars, restaurants, and specialty shops, which are perfect in balance and choice. Just sitting outside, having a drink and watching the ships, boats, and other watercraft go by has its own beauty and peace!
Service and staff are what you would expect here. Extremely attentive and aware of your presence. The room was spacious (no suite here and certainly would have appreciated a “Bosporus View”), but everything was comfortable and perfectly prepared. We did have an “early” morning flight out and so greatly appreciated the timely, well prepared, and EARLY room service with mandatory coffee!!!
You are in a somewhat awkward location with not much to walk to, but you do have easy access to the various sights and locations as long as traffic conditions allow … not too much of a problem for us.
It is totally different from the other Four Seasons property… Completely depends on you travel style … but we completely enjoyed the stay!
