It was great hotel with excellent view, our stay was very cozy in the days of snowfall, the hotel was a little bit expensive.Comment of A. Yousef , Saudi Arabia the 2016-12-31
"Best Winter in Istanbul"
Four season management considered to be one of the best hospitalities hotels in the world so no word will be fear to explain how their staffs are so helpful and very professional. Of course the view of this hotel is a Fabulous, unforgettable and I totally recommend people to visit Istanbul during winter
"An oasis amidst a bustling city..."
Along with wife and 4-year old, we spent 5 days here in August 2015. The hotel is perfectly situated along the Bosphorous - the outdoor pool and seating areas make it hard to break away from the hotel. Watching the sun set over the Bosphorous is an unforgettable experience. Pros *Hotel grounds and interior are beautiful and immaculate. *Be sure to try out spa...we did a couples full treatment Turkish bath/massage...simply an unforgettable experience. *Hotel offers safe and reliable in-room baby sitting service, a huge plus for families with little ones. *Staff were always smiling and inviting. After just a couple of nights you'll feel like your home. *Security at entrance of hotel is vigorous, we felt very safe and secure. Cons *Eating daily at hotel can be costly, especially since many comparable restaurants are available at much lower cost. *Although hotel isn't located to many kilometers from tourist spots, depending upon time of day, traffic congestion means you have to budget at least 30min-1hr to get anywhere. *Bad News -- Concierge gave us misleading info which lead us to be late to our Turkish Bath and Massage appointment at the Blue Mosque Hammam leading me to miss my appt. Good news - Concierge made it up to us by providing my wife and I a complimentary couples Turkish Bath/Massage at their own in-house hammam! **Would not hesitate to return!
"Wonderfully restored old palace"
This beautiful hotel is right on the Bosphorus, with a patio that goes to the water. The grounds spread some way around the hotel, with several restaurants near the water and additional space indoors. The room I had was comfortable and well appointed, and the staff were quite helpful. The hotel is a modern reconstruction of an old palace, preserving many features and updating others. It seems to be a magnet for wealthy vacationers, but I came for business in Istanbul, and had one of my meetings in their lounge. The location is not far from many interesting parts of Istanbul (although the other Four Seasons property is immediately by the historical areas of the Golden Horn).
"Nothing short of Excellence-a home away from home"
Hotel was excellent in everything...staff went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant...Both Four Season Hotels in Istanbul are just great...a must to stay at...really enjoyed our stay. Close to all the important business and tourist centres. Probably one of the best in Istanbul...
"The Best Hotel in Istanbul!"
There is nothing to say other than "everything is perfect"!!! If you can afford it - stay there. Food in all restaurants including breakfast is amazing and fresh! Also they serve fantastic food in one of their Turkish restaurants - quite different from other hotels, which normally serve some universal boring food. The way they treated my little son - unforgettable. Kindest attitude above all... new theme bedding ever day (superman etc), BVLgari kids toiletries, snacks etc We are really grateful!
