Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Simply the finest in luxury lodging. No one does it better than the Four Seasons and the property at Sultanahmet is no exception. Originally a prison, the hotel is immaculate, spacious and in an ideal location. Walk to the Hagia Sophia and the Sultan Ahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque). If you wish you see the Mosque and are not a member of the faith, make sure you check for times when it's open to visitors as it is a place of worship. When checking in, make sure you add the extra charge for breakfast the next day: it is NOT to be missed!!!
Four Seasons -- synonymous with sophistication, luxury, grandeur, opulent surroundings in the best locations...but more importantly than all of these combined, is an excellence in hoteliership and an innate understanding of the ethos of quality service... This is not to be confused with obsequious subservience, (or the mere meeting of guest expectation), but the anticipation and provision of the needs of the most demanding clientele whose lives - often through the demands of business - have been disrupted by being away from the people and things which are most familiar to them. This is where Four Seasons has always stood apart from the field - their scrupulous attention to detail, especially when recruiting the sort of hotel professionals who understand the difference, and who possess a desire to be part of such an ethos and work at the top of their game in an environment which requires excellence at every level, and at all times. I am glad to report that the team I encountered during my time at this establishment, were superbly representative of this group's outstanding international reputation. In particular I should like to single-out for special commendation Umut Yesilmenderes (for his unassuming professional attention to detail and skill in providing understated, subtle and considerate service) which contributed a polished, unobtrusive and congenial air to every element of the evening. He was ably assisted by Cihan Ören, who whilst still learning, also has the makings of a very good hotelier under the tutelage of their Bar and Restaurant Manager Ezgi Korkut. A superb effort all round, delivered effortlessly - which of course is the trick. It has always been reassuring to know that wherever you are in the world, once you pass through the doors of a Four Seasons, you are in expert hands and can confidently enjoy the oasis. This property lives up to that reputation. Congratulations.
Very nice hotel with a great location. The service was great and it is close to the main sites in Istanbul. The food in the restaurant is excellent. The breakfast included in the room is just continental breakfast
Istanbul is half way between me and my family and we hadn't met for nearly two months due to work. I needed a special place to catch up and I got one. OK, I did get an upgrade to a fabulous suite that came with its own steam room but......The location is fabulous, you can walk in 5 mins to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, everything. Service was impeccable from the door staff , reception, concierge, bar staff, housekeeper and the young lady who sat crossed legged in the breakfast room making the most delicious turkish treat over a special curved hot plate. My 7 year old son had pens, pencils and a Turkish football jersey waiting for him on his bed which each of the 3 nights that we were there had a different superhero themed bed linen. We stay in a lot of hotels and this made my son squeal every afternoon when we returned after sightseeing. Of course, its not cheap and its the Four Seasons but I have learned that just because its a high end brand doesn't necessarily make for a Wow experience. The hotel itself is stunning, an old prison, lovely gardens and a serene feel. Perfect. Thats it!
Excellent location, excellent hotel condition, hospitable staff, breakfast is average taken into account that the rate is a little on the high end. The garden is very nice and well land scaped. Being near Auyah Sofia and the Blue Mosque, allows you to wander around the area even at night and enjoy it.
I like this hotel so much. In every season i have different experience. I like garden and atmosphere. You can smell history in everry part of the hotel. Imaddiately stay in this hotel, eat your dinner, lunch else drink stg.
Everything excellent, everyone superb; try it even for one night. Ask about the history. Try the hammam close by. Go to Iznik Classics. Feel the Turkish love, warmth and hospitality. Don't forget Iskandar Kabob!
