Welcome to Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus. On the European bank of the Bosphorus – which flows through Istanbul’s history and heart – Four Seasons gives a 19th-century palace a fresh, eclectic spirit. Alluring facilities include a chic urban spa. Fine restaurants and pools by the quayside overlook the Asian shore. And all are awash in the light, space and excitement of this water’s-edge location.

In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.

as Istanbul is a very hectic city, it is important to have a peaceful place such as the 4 seasons. Rooms are wide enough and well maintained, the service is quick and efficient. The view over the Bosphorus is wonderful and a tea in the garden is lovely.

Even though our stay was in March i had wished there would be more to do in the hotel. A journey on the bosphorus would have been very interesting like they do in Prague four seasons. The restaurant isn't appealing at all. You wouldn't feel like having breakfast in such a closed

This is a modern international hotel with a fantastic location next to the Bosporus. The rooms are nice, spacious and well equipped and the service excellent. But it does lack some local flavour. If you do not look out of the window this could be anywhere in the world.

Not sure, but I think that you should be a guest or be accompanied by one

"Rooms not facing courtyard may have very restricted view of neighbouring property wall"
"STay in the palace portion to really experience the hotel."
"We liked the South side - it was quiet and had a great view. We don't like the North side as well though the rooms are fine."
"Bosphorus view is worth every penny!"
"Palace building rooms are quite unique"
