"Probably the best" Top 5 Page for this destination Four Seasons Istanbul Tip by traveloturc
Four Seasons Istanbul, Istanbul: 1,374 reviews and 9 photos
If you want the city's best, a beautiful hotel with Ottoman character, luxury appointments and superbly trained staff, in the best possible location for sightseeing, this is it.
The historic Ottoman building was formerly (and famously) a prison, but that's beside the point. It is now carefully restored and adapted to lodge a mere 130 guests in 65 guest rooms (including 11 suites) served by a staff of 200, meaning that there are more staff than guests.
The guest rooms come in three sizes (Standard, Superior, Deluxe), with even the Standard being of good size. Rich dark wood, brass fittings, oil paintings by local artists, Turkish craft items and of course rich Turkish carpets furnish them all.
Location, location, location: the Four Seasons is on Tevkifhane Sokak in Sultanahmet, literally a stone's throw from Ayasofya, the Blue Mosque and the Hippodrome, and only a scenic five-minute stroll from Topkapi Palace.
Address: Tevkifhane Sokak No 1 Sultanahmet Eminonu
Price Comparison: most expensive
Price: US$180 and up
