This hotel is excellent! I stayed for 3 nights in October 2014. The room was large and very confortable with a sofa bed in the living room, with all the details like fresh flowers and big bathroom as you would expect in a Four Seasons. The breakfast is amazing!! Service is top notch. The spa is superb and the shop...

The hard product (lobby, rooms and grounds) are first-rate, and service is top notch. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite from a Deluxe Room (one of the Virtuoso amenities), which was very spacious. The furnishings were clean and contemporary, which is a positive for those who prefer this type of decor, although it doesn't give out quite the sense...

We stayed at the Four Seasons Bosphorus for 17 days till January 6th, and I can state that we have had one of our best vacations ever.

The Four Seasons at the Bosphorus is an amazing place to stay if you want to be pampered; if you want to relax; and if you want personalized service.

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.
