Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet
  • The Four Seasons Sultanahmet must be one of few 5 star hotels housed in a former prison

  • The roof terrace offer supreme views of Hagia Sophia

  • Location wise this hotel cannot be beaten as it is in striking distance to all the key sites - the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Cistern to name but a few

  • Despite its location right at the heart of the old city, the hotel is a wonderful place to unwind as it has a spacious landscaped courtyard at its heart

Formerly a neo-classical Turkish prison, the building has been renovated into a luxurious 64-room boutique hotel. The building is formed around a central open courtyard, with a lovely garden and an al fresco restaurant in the center. The rooms and suites are very spacious and unique in design, decorated in a traditionally Ottoman style. Many rooms have outstanding views, with the highlight being the hotel’s large roof terrace looking directly over the beautiful Hagia Sophia and old town in one direction and out towards the Bosphorus in the other – probably the best views in all of Istanbul!

The hotel has a spectacular position, right in the center of the old town with just a very short walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Topkapi Palace. Another stroll away is the amazing underground cistern and grand bazaar with its huge number of stalls and produce. This hotel is perfect for those wishing to be right in the center of this exciting, mysterious city, with all the main sites and fabulous restaurants on their doorstep.
