Set within the walls of a restored Ottoman palace dating from the 19th century, enjoying a remarkable and scenic location alongside the banks of the mighty Bosphorus, the Four Seasons Bosphorus offers an experience of authenticity and luxury at the meeting point of Europe and Asia. Combining the likes of Turkish architecture and contemporary décor with warm hospitality and superb facilities, all the while providing front row seats to Istanbul’s famous waterfront skyline, the hotel manages to unite a desirable theme of relaxation and adventure.

Offering a choice of 65 rooms and suites, the guest rooms are divided between two annexes and the striking Palace Building. In the latter, guests will enjoy the true Ottoman style, as well as some superb views across the Bosphorus from unique floor-to-ceiling windows, while some suites come with a private rooftop terrace. Across all rooms, guests will enjoy a spacious and airy interior, with pleasant décor and touches of both authenticity and modernity.

Dining is quite the experience at the Four Seasons Bosphorus, beginning with an immense breakfast buffet in a space that transforms into the sophisticated Aqua Restaurant, serving up Mediterranean cuisine that highlights the region’s freshest ingredients. The neighbouring bar is a great place to settle down for a nightcap, while summer pop-up eateries provide a diverse array of further culinary experiences. For relaxation, the outdoor swimming pool invites guests for a refreshing soak beside the Bosphorus, and the on-site spa is the place to go for traditional wellness treatments.
