Overview

Welcome to Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus. On the European bank of the Bosphorus – which flows through Istanbul’s history and heart – Four Seasons gives a 19th-century palace a fresh, eclectic spirit. Alluring facilities include a chic urban spa. Fine restaurants and pools by the quayside overlook the Asian shore. And all are awash in the light, space and excitement of this water’s-edge location.

Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus offers 170 guest rooms including 25 suites. Bright and airy, blending Ottoman design details and contemporary furnishings, they open to balmy sea breezes and a variety of waterfront, garden and city views. Nearly a quarter of the rooms offer views across the legendary Strait to the hills of Asia.

The Spa takes inspiration from the enduring mystique and unique qualities of the hammam (Turkish bath), famous since Ottoman times. Serenity, purity and cleansing embody all facets of the guest experience. The 2,100-square-metre (22,605-square-foot) facility offers 10 luxurious treatment rooms (including a private spa suite for two), steam rooms, saunas, men’s and women’s hammams and a breathtaking skylit indoor pool. Nurturing and personal Four Seasons care ensures a relaxing, renewing journey that honours ancient Near Eastern tradition, while celebrating modern Western sophistication.

Choose Aqua for Mediterranean fine dining, highlighting Italian and Turkish cuisines. Relax in the intimate and sophisticated Lobby Bar and Lounge. Or dine in the breezy quayside atmosphere of the Pool Bar and Grill.

Location Summary
A fusion of age-old glories and a cool, contemporary 21st-century culture, Istanbul has survived two millennia of extraordinary history. The city holds appeal for all interests – architecture, art, culture, nightlife, cuisine and more.

Straddling the 32-kilometre (20-mile) Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul (formerly known as Byzantium, and then as Constantinople) is frequently described as the crossroads of Europe and Asia. Fought over time and again, the city became the centre of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. Its historic heart – Sultanahmet and the bazaar quarter, with its great mosques, opulent palaces and Byzantine ruins – offers a fascinating glimpse into those tumultuous times.

Encompassing three land masses – two on the European side of the Bosphorus, divided by the Golden Horn, and the Asian shores – Istanbul is best explored neighbourhood by neighbourhood.

Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus basks in the coastal resort ambience of the historic strait of the Bosphorus – with its vibrant jazz clubs and designer shops, and where reflections of private palaces shimmer in the wake of passing yachts.
