The Experience

Four Seasons Istanbul at the Bosphorus

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-edgelocation.


Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus offers 141 guest rooms and 25 suites. Bright and airy, they open to balmy sea breezes and a variety of waterfront, garden and city views. A striking blend of Ottoman design and contemporary mahogany furnishings, their décor is a rich palette of deep blue or terra cotta, accented by shades of copper and burgundy. Ornate ceilings feature hand-painted traditional motifs, and lithographs representative of Turkish and Ottoman art adorn the walls. Nearly a quarter of the rooms offer views across the legendary Strait to the hills of Asia.


Overlooking the Bosphorus, Aqua showcases fine Mediterranean cuisine, with Italian and Turkish specialties and signature dishes that feature fish and lamb. A breakfast buffet features international offerings, while lunch and dinner offer an à la carte menu accompanied by an exceptional range of fine wines. Pool Bar and Grill – within an airy kiosk, guests can enjoy light meals and snacks, including salads, grilled kebabs and fresh fish, in a casual ambience. Adjacent to the Hotel lobby, the Lobby Bar and Lounge offers an intimate space for business and social occasions. Featuring lovely views over the Strait from its terrace, this all-day venue offers tasty snacks, afternoon tea, champagne and wine served by the glass, classical and contemporary cocktails, and cigars. All are accompanied by live piano music that continues into the evening. Four Seasons In-Room Dining is a fine dining experience within the comfort and convenience of your guest room or suite. Choose from an extensive menu — day or night — that is ideal for time-zone-hopping travelers, impromptu meetings or for quiet, private dining.


The Spa takes inspiration from the enduring mystique and unique qualities of the hammam (Turkish bath), famous since Ottoman times. The 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 sky lit indoor pool. Nurturing and personal Four Seasons care ensures a relaxing, renewing journey that honors ancient Near Eastern tradition, while celebrating modern Western sophistication. The Fitness Centre features advanced workout options for the fitness enthusiast. It offers the latest in cardiovascular equipment – with each machine featuring an LCD touch-screen television and headphones – as well as an extensive selection of weight-training machines and free weights. The heated pool overlooking the Bosphorus, with its pool deck and heated whirlpool, offers a quiet respite where guests can relax far from the bustle of the city. Drinks and light snacks are served in the Pool Bar and Grill.

A striking juxtaposition of East and West, Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus (on the European bank) exudes a palatial ambience with a decidedly chic character.

Each of the 145 guestrooms and 25 suites has opening windows (the better to feel the caress of the sea breezes), contemporary mahogany furnishings and hand painted ceilings.

The Palace Bosphorus rooms have the most amazing views of the Old Town, the strait of the Bosphorus and the Asian shores beyond.Distance from Istanbul Airport (IST): 16 mi/25 km Guests Receive:
