Historical Traveller Reviews of Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet
Perfect Hotelfrom GaryInUK
The food was presented perfectly and the staff fantastic. ( oh and the taxi they called me was new clean and cost half for the same journey compared to the one we called from a restaurant)
True 5 Star location !!!
A little piece of heavenfrom Adventure Diva
The staff was top notch and provided highly-attentive customer service. I am allergic to chocolate and every time I returned back to my hotel room at night they had some type of Turkish delicacy that I could enjoy. From the doorman to the Reception Desk to the Concierge Department, the service was seamless. You could feel they were proud to be part of the Four Seasons team and wanted to make your stay pleasant. I wish their attitude could be implemented into Corporate America (!)
Would I go back there? Absolutely. Even though it was pricey, it was worth every cent.
You will not be disappointedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I have stayed at the Kempinski in Istanbul before and the Four Seasons is just so much better. Apparently, the building used to be a prison, which makes the architecture very interesting. The rooms are huge and beautiful, the bathrooms are the best bathrooms I have seen in a hotel - just amazing. The view from my balcony was - Hagia Sophia. Very impressive!
I would recommend that if you have a choice, stay in the Four Seaons over the Kempinski.

Winter-cold season hotel istanbulfrom A TripAdvisor Member
also the hotel was a prison and it just gives you the feeling of a luxurious renovated old ottoman prison,so i feel a luxurious prissoner in one way,furtermore cause the service had cold soul.An other negative was the price,i expect much more luxury ,bigger spaces,better service,not so many noise at afternoons and drinks from a five star hotel when you have to pay over 300 euros for a room.A nice hotel without soul.
If this is a prison...from Bryce
Definitely five stars plus the nice small amenitiesfrom FrankfurtExplorers
(a) The location is brilliant. Situated right between the major sights in Istanbul, you can have the incredible experience of having your aperitif on the roof terrace with a spectacular view of Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and the Bosporus all at the same time.
(b) The service is one of the best we have had in recent years. Special thanks to Harun, the concierge, who hit the spot with his dinner recommendations every night we stayed there.
(c) The small things: These start with the "welcome home" at the front door if you return from the 24h traffic jam in Istanbul. If you have placed your book on the nightstand, you may find a bookmark on top of it in the evening. Instead of packaged chocolate for the evening, you'll find a real desert plate with Turkish baclava or pralines in your room when you come back in the evening. These are the small things that make the difference in hotels of this category.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, and can only recommend it highly. If in Istanbul, we'll be back.
Perfect Accommodations!from jhembree
A Great Hotelfrom ACM1
We were also grateful for the great car service to the airport. They didn't just get us there on time, but they also had someone help us negotiate the airport by taking us and our luggage to the airline check-in desk and then to passport control. What a service.
Finally, we had one of those magical moments in life while we were having drinks on the roof top bar. A bright, full moon rose over the Bosphorus to our left, while at the same time we were watching the Blue Mosque light show on our right. What hotel could top that! I have always thought Four Seasons Hotels were the best...but this property is incredible.
Top Local Tips for Istanbul
Mosque of Süleyman I the Magnificent is CLOSED for two years Just a word of warning to anyone wanting to trek over to the Suleyman Mosque. It is closed for renovation for the next two years. You can walk into one small part of it, but the great majority of it is walled off with a massive white wooden wall. There are booths at the open entrances asking for donations to enter the grounds, so if you pay and then go into the mosque expecting to be wowed, you won't be wowed. Hope this advice helps someone.
Rent a Taxi for all the time you stay there, always ready for you and cheeper. We arrange a one taxi driver to service us for the time we were in Istanbul, from 10 am to 12 midnight,flat rate, was very helpfull, and same taxi driver we felt more comfertable, and he was always ready to take us anywhere.he knows all the right placeses to take us, like a personal tour guide,worth it.
Beware of inflated prices. Make sure that you are not pressured into buying rugs, jewelry or leather goods at inflated prices. If it seems too expensive, walk away. If your tour guide takes you to a shop, be aware that they will be getting a kickback around 20%. It is better to never go into a shop accompanied by a tour guide, and even then, you need to negotiate a hard bargain. After all is said and done, you still might pay too much, so make sure that the merchandise is unique and not available in your home country.
