Very nice rooms, clean and well equipped. Staff ist very helpful and friendly. Spa and Fitnessrooum are great. We enjoyed our stay there, even if we didn't have a room on the Bosphorus. The north- and south-wing rooms might not have the great sight, but are still quiet. The hotel is not in the center, but it's worth it. Perfect... More

Just returned from my third weekend break at this fabulous hotel. It's location directly on the Bosphorus is second to none. Slightly removed from the main tourist sights but that to me is a positive. Returning here after a busy day exploring is a joy. A swim in the outdoor pool or indoor pool or an hour in the spa...

Excellent venue, on a magic spot on Bosphorus. Ideally located on the shore of the Bosphorus, with a magic view towards the ancient City. This is a luxury place, with all amenities offered, especially the indoor swimming pool, the traditional hammam, as well as the wellness facilities.

This hotel may be a little further out from airport & main tourist sites than its sister hotel at Sultan Ahmet district BUT the service and quality of rooms are well worth it.

On our way back from a sailing trip along the Turkish coast, my wife and I checked into the Four Seasons, Bosphorus for a few nights. Built in an old prison, the hotel is excellent, although the windows and views were a bit small - as befitting a prison, I suppose. However, the central location more than compensates. Instead of...

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.
