NileGuide Expert Says:
"Four Seasons has supplemented its Sultanahmet property with an outpost right on the Bosphorus – zap open the remote-control blinds to reveal this stunning stretch of water. If you can tear yourself away from the view, there’s a lavish spa with three hammams, and a gleaming marble terrace with a pool and a private dock for guests’ yachts. Don’t have one? Speedboats are on hand to whisk you to the swanky coastal clubs. Financial Times - How to Spend It Magazine, May 2, 2009

Hotel star rating:
Four Seasons Bosphorus is the newest and the second hotel of the hotel chain Four Seasons after the Four Seasons Hotel in Sultanahmet
. This 19th century palace radiates a magnificent auro in a magnificent location on the shores of the Bopshorus. Alluring facilities of Four Seasons Bosphorus include: an elegant spa, a swimming pool right next to the shore, fitness center, fine restaurants with samples of world cusine, a variety of business services and concierge services. Apart from the comfort and luxury that the hotel provides for its customers, perhaps an aspect, tiny but worth mentioning, is the expansive and beautifully designed terrace running the full length of the hotel on the water line. This is the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine or your favorite cocktail. Whether you stay at the Royal Suite or in the standard room, the staff always greets you by your name, is always very friendly and glad to be off service to your needs. The hotel is unfortunately not within walking distance from main monuments and attractions; however, buses run regularly and there is a bus stop right out of the hotel. It is also possible to take a cab until Eminonu or Karakoy and from there catch the tram into the old city.
