Four Seasons Sultanahmet

The five-star Four Seasons is one of Istanbul's premier hotels, with a prime location in the heart of the Sultanahmet district, between the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque.

Harriet, Kate L and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

The building is imposing but the atmosphere inside is intimate, with just 65 rooms arranged around an enclosed courtyard. The rooms and suites are luxuriously fitted with reading chairs, original works of art, and tiled bathrooms with deep tubs.

The 'Seasons' restaurant is housed in a glass-enclosed courtyard, with an outdoor terrace during the summer months, and serves international cuisine and local specialities.

The spa offers a variety of revitalising massage treatments and saunas, and the Health Club provides guests with a private retreat of exceptional quality in which to exercise.

Why we love it

The hotel building was once a prison, but latter day inmates can enjoy what must be one of the finest hotels in Europe.
