Anyone would be hard pushed to find a problem with this property. Excellent service large rooms amazing staff top quality food and the perfect location on Bosphorus away from the hustle of the old town, Ok it comes at a price but a price worth paying.

I doubt that anyone would be disappointed by the standards of service, accommodation and cuisine at this hotel. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and genuinely luxurious and the staff are plentiful and courteous. I have stayed here for both business and pleasure, and can recommend for both. The location on the Bosphorous provides wonderful views and makes the place...

It began at Atatürk Airport. After clearing passport control, my husband and I found a representative from the hotel waiting for us with a sign. We typically book a hotel driver for arrival when traveling outside the country (especially when it's the first time in said country) simply because we want our experience from airport to hotel to be smooth...

This is a very nice hotel but getting a room as I did that looks at the front drive just seems like a complete waste. There is little point in coming here and not getting a view of the Bosporous. It's an exciting and busy sea lane and the views exude romance in this picturesque city. The staff are helpful...

The Four Seasons Istanbul was once a prison ... WOW - the Four Seasons folks really did a memorable job transitioning this to an environment of comfort, quiet and safety.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
Besiktas
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.
