Wife and I stayed a few nights in a premier room (roomy) after a tiring tour of The Stans. Calm, peaceful, service as good as any Four Seasons, good martini in the bar, good food, good concierge. Separate w/c, stand up separate shower, w/c room even had a window that opened! Really enjoyed it, very glad we took our agent's recommendation and stayed at this property (so close to everything) rather than the Four Seasons on the Bosphorus. Recommend one night hanging out on roof top bar during cocktail hour, where the DJ played nice relaxing music as you enjoyed the view and a drink. (DJ.) was very friendly when I asked about a particular artist he was playing and gave me the name, album and song name

Room Tip: Glad we spent more and got the larger room.

We had a superior king room which was a very good size. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The rooftop has an amazing view of the Hagia Sophia. Will definitely stay at this hotel when we visit Istanbul again.

all rooms feel as master bedrooms with marble shower/bath/double sinks and near floor-to-ceiling windows and enveloping king beds that maximize rest and relaxation. Assure you dine in resplendent central garden cafe and also rooftop bar, and take advantage of hourly shuttle to other Four Seasons for a swim or spa

Room Tip: CIty-view possible on upper south-facing floors

This hotel is everything you expect from a Four Seasons. The location could not be better if you're a tourist in the city and are here to visit Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace or the Grand Bazaar. It's an easy walk to all those, as well as a host of other sites.

The rooms are clean, fabulously appointed and a good size. They're not enormous, but they're not small either. It's what you expect of a Four Seasons.

The service is also fabulous. They go above and beyond to make your stay amazing. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner on separate occasions and all were absolutely fabulous.

They have a shuttle between this Four Seasons and the one on the Bosphorus so we took it and spent a day at the other Four Seasons.

If you're in Istanbul to hang out by the pool and generally just stay in your hotel enjoying its amenities, then you definitely want to stay at the Bosphorus. If you're in Istanbul to sightsee, then the Sultanahmet location is far superior in my opinion. It's much smaller, more intimate and much more convenient for sightseeing. The Bosphorus is enormous, crowded and has a beautiful pool. Depends on what you're looking for.

Overall, there's nothing I can think of that needs improvement at the Sultanahmet and I am generally a tough critic.

Room Tip: They have a few rooms that gives you fabulous views of Hagia Sophia. Ask for those.

The Four Seasons at Sultanahmet is a wonderful hotel in the best central location. The service and ambiance is exceptional with a lot of personal attention. The concierge was incredibly helpful in working with us on getting our driver, tour guide and making suggestions when needed! The hotel is close to the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Dome, just a short walk, and in an area with many restaurants and shops. Best of all, it is not far from the Grand Bazaar, maybe a 15 minute walk! I would highly recommend this Four Seasons hotel!
