Four Seasons Istanbul at Sultanahmet is on the fringe of Old-Town Istanbul and less than a 10-minute walk from Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia, and the Spice Market. The Grand Bizarre is only ten minutes further on foot, but taxis are readily available. Istanbul Atatürk International Airport is about a 20-minute drive away. Limousine service to and from the airport can be arranged without any trouble.
About This Hotel
The sound of the Adhan prompts you put down your Efes, admire the view of the Blue Mosque from your window and contemplate how this musical prayer has echoed through these walls for centuries.
Located in the of one of the oldest and most interesting quarters of one of the oldest and most interesting cities in the world, the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet is an ideal base from which to explore. The bold ochre-tinted walls of this restored neo-classic Turkish prison stands in playful contrast to the sharp white walls of the Blue Mosque and the pinkish hue of the Hagia Sofia - both just steps from your door.
The hotel's 65 guest rooms and suites hint at their ancient (and infamous) past, all the while celebrating the rich culture of Turkey with faience tiles, Ottoman antiques, tapestries, and intricate carpets. Every room offers an intriguing perspective of either Istanbul, the hotel's courtyard, or the stunning glass pavilion that covers Seasons, the hotel's restaurant.
The Lounge offers superb cocktails of course, but if you happen to secure VIP privileges to one of the super-chic and exclusive discos along the Bosphorus - do not hesitate to go.
