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. While the view from the hotel's terrace in the evening is magnificent, you won't remember any of it at 5 AM when the street starts getting...

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.
