Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet
Ranked #16 of 1,159 Hotels in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 May 2011

The Four Seasons looked in Sultanahmat is in a great location & easy walk to a lot of attractions & 5 minutes to the tram which is easy to navigate. Altho expensive, the quiet elegance is worth the price. The room was large, small suite, with excellant bed & bedding. Everyone in hotel greeted you where ever you were & many surprised me by knowing our name. The rooms were very quiet. Bathroom was large with a waterfall showerhead from 8 feet high. Breakfast buffet was like most Four Seasons. Dinner in a courtyard enclosed glass room was delicious.

Our trip to Istanbul was a surprise birthday treat for my husband having always had the city on his 'wish' list. Emails confirming arrangements between myself and the hotel were both answered promptly and curtiously which paved the way for a most fabulous 2 night stay. We were given room 305 which had been the prison wardens apartment, now it is a sumptious suite with a ground floor sitting, dining and desk area. The stairs led us up to our mezzanine bedroom with the largest bathroom we have every seen, even the shower doubled up as a steam cubicle.....

As hard as it was to leave the room, we ventured out and very quickly realised that the hotel is in a perfect location for all the main sights. Yes, you are asked continuously if you would like to visit a carpet shop but a firm polite smiley "no thank you" worked fine. On our return the hotel had placed in our room an amazing birthday cake for my husband. We decided to eat in one of the local fish restaurants and were recommended one by concierge, about 5 mins walk away. This turned out to be packed inside and outside (popular choice) so the reservation made on our behalf was a very good idea! Food and ambience top notch. Before arriving we had booked through the hotel a days guide. We asked for recommended Seda, who was interesting, well read and had a delightful personality. Visiting major sights, the bazaar and spice market made for a perfect day under Seda's expert guidance. We have stayed at some top hotels but the breakfast in the courtyard was one of the best we had experienced. Reluctantly, we left after two nights with a complimentary transfer to the FS on the Bosphorus. The hotel with its location, beautiful rooms and some of the nicest staff we have ever encounted at a hotel made for a most perfect birthday stay.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights post-cruise and were very happy with our choice. Top notch Four Seasons quality in a distinctive renovated building (was once a prison!). Our room was very spacious and quiet as it looked out on the inner courtyard. Location is outstanding -- literally a stone's throw away from the main attractions in old Istanbul (Blue Mosque, Haggia Sophia, Topkapki Palace). In nice weather the roof-top seating area has a great view. Restaurant is in the courtyard so no view but excellent food. Fitness room was adequate but in the basement so not great (didn't try the spa). All VERY pricey of course -- but a great choice if your budget allows.

Room Tip: Inside room was very quiet.

This hotel is in the middle of the Sultanahmet. Superb staff, incredibly helpful and I would recommend everyone stay here if they felt their budget stretched to it. I always say Four Seasons have the best hotel beds!

We stayed in the Four Seasons in Istanbul for three nights and found everything to be the usual Four Seasons exceptional standard. The room was spacious and comfortable, with lots of added extras such as DVD player with list of movies, a gorgeous spa bath with TV and nice touches such as fresh fruit and turkish delight delivered daily to the room. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and recommended restaurants and organised a private tour for us as well (which was excellent). The breakfast was extensive and delicious and we also ate in the restaurant in the hotel one night which was really nice as well. The only downside of the whole experience was the hotel charging 20 euros for wireless internet in the rooms, which seems excessive considering a lot of other places offer it for free.

There is no doubt the concierge staff at this hotel is among the best. Get to know them fast and use their expert advice and recommendations. Their help is essential for the first time tourist. Special thanks to all for the private tour of the old city highlights. Ask for Seda Karaca from Travelium. She was warm, friendly, humorous, and informative. I have never had a better tour guide; and was elated to skip to the front of the line at all attractions.
The hotel is architecturally significant with elegant decor and rooms with jaw-dropping views. Housekeeping and front desk staff exceptional.
But.....avoid the restaurant and room-service as it was mediocre food at best; but with friendly service. Instead use the concierge for recommendations on many authentic dining experiences within steps of the hotel.
As well, the spa is NOT a spa. It is two lockerooms, two massage rooms and a cramped fitness room that doubles as the spa reception area. And all contained in a not to comfortable subterranean setting. No one was there to greet us so we made do on our own. The hotel massage was no where near the best I've had. Instead go to the local Turkish hamam for an authentic experience.
Lastly, the airport transportation, although comfortable, is not operated by the FS and therefore lackluster in its service. On neither journey to/from the airport would the driver speak to us even though they clearly spoke English. That was a huge disappointment. First impressions are important and a welcome to our city would have been nice.
So it was an almost perfect stay with some hiccups along the way.

Room Tip: upgrade to deluxe category for a better view
