Two of the Best Hotels to Stay in Istanbul - Four Seasons

FOUR SEASONS HOTEL - Istanbul at Sultanahmet

This is the first Four Seasons Hotel to open in Istanbul.  It was  a century old neo-classical prison before they turned it into a hotel which is worthy of a visit just to experience it's unique aura.

For years, the Sunday Brunch at the Seasons Restaurant was one of our favorite haunts.  It is the best I have had anywhere in the world with an amazing selection of delectable food and deserts.  The desert buffet alone would make it noteworthy.

The location of this hotel at the center of the old city, Sultanahmet, can't be beat since it's only steps away from the Topkapi Sarayi (Topkapi Palace), Arkeoloji Muzesi (Archeology Museum), Sultan Ahmet Camii (Blue Mosque) and Aya Sofya (Hagia Sophia)  just to name a few of Istanbul's key historical attractions.  Not to mention Kapali Carsi (Covered Bazaar) and Misir Carsisi (Spice Bazaar) all within a short walking distance or one to two stops on the metro.

FOUR SEASONS HOTEL - Istanbul at the Bosphorus

This Four Seasons situated in a 19th century palace, has the advantage of being right on the Bosphorus with breathtaking views.  This is a wonderful part of town that offers different venues, out of the way museums and an abundance of restaurants and nightclubs.  City center is still a convenient taxi ride away.  Staying here, one can get the whole dreamy experience of life on the Bosphorus.
