Located a few steps from the historical beauties of Istanbul, Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet has been offering unique guest experiences since 1996. Opening its doors again in 2022 after a two-year comprehensive renovation process, the hotel continues its journey as the only five-star luxury hotel in the historical peninsula.
During the renovation process, the interiors of the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet were redesigned based on previous neoclassical Turkish architecture, unique location and successful history in luxury hotel management. All rooms have been renovated with the same design language and approach applied to the common areas. A hidden gem in the heart of Istanbul, the hotel offers its guests a unique and unforgettable stay in an environment where local culture and values are best integrated.
In each of the hotel’s excellent restaurants, guests are offered a special gastronomic experience with unique flavors created by Executive Chef Özgür Üstün and his team. Offering a visual feast with its renovated landscape, the Courtyard Restaurant offers tastes from modern Anatolian cuisine, while the energetic Süreyya Terrace Lounge serves with the stunning view of the Hagia Sophia Mosque, the Blue Mosque and the historical peninsula.
Four Seasons offers the best aspects of Istanbul to its guests with two hotels with different styles that complement each other aesthetically. While Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet welcomes its guests in its historical building built in 1918-1919, Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Bosphorus offers a luxurious accommodation experience in the historical setting of an elegant 19th century palace restored on the Bosphorus shore.
