Stayed here on my last 3 nights in Turkey after 6 days at the Sultanahmet area and what a beautiful place to end my experience in Istanbul! The service provided by the hotel is excellent and I felt so pampered. The layout of the building by the Bosphorus itself is spectacular & it is a 10 minute walking distance to...

We stayed 2 nights at FS Bosphorus in a 'Palace Bosphorus Room'. Airport transfer was arranged by the Concierge at 190 Eur. It took roughly 45 minutes to reach the hotel. Our reservation was made through Amex FHR/ Centurion program which includes upgrade upon availability. But we were offered a 'paying' upgrade to a small suite in the modern wing....

I'm giving a three star rating because of the very nice facilities and the staff very willing to please. Unfortunately the hotel is located between the Bosphorus and a very noisy and busy road.

Wonderful addition to Four Seasons chain of hotels! In the past we had stayed in the FS's Sultanahmet location, which was also great, but it was renovated building that used to be a jail, which had an eeriness all its own. This one is a very elegant 'petit palais', if you expect the most gorgeous of Bosphorus views, comfortable beds,...

One of the world's best hotels. Excellent views, food, accommodations and staff. The hotel's design was tasteful and elegant. We felt welcome and comfortable the entire time. Can't imagine staying elsewhere in Istanbul for the price. Not cheap. Incredible.

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.
