Exceptional hotel and location!
Posted Nov 26, 2016
Beautiful and historical hotel. We would recommend to anyone and everyone who is travelling to Istanbul. The Four Season at SultanAhmet is perfectly location. You get sweeping views for the Aya Sofia and the Blue Mosque from the terrace bar. The air on that terrace is exquisitely prickly with pretty amazing vibes (and it had nothing to do with alcohol consumption or lack there of!).
The courtyard where we went to have breakfast was kind of unpleasantly stinky. There is a beautiful garden which helped with the smell but the pungent smell was hard to miss right when we were entering the café. The breakfast was mostly delicious. The English muffin on the menu should probably be renamed to "bagel with out the hole".
The tram system was barely a 5minute walk from the hotel. The neighbouring area was so exquisite to walk and explore every day and night.
Checkin was easy and quick and painless. Checkout was quickly easy and quick. Efficiency is key at this hotel.
We HIGHLY recommend spending the money on the private dinner on the private terrace. AMAZING! Words cannot express the amazing experience we had celebrating my husband's birthday on that private terrace. Food was incredible overall.
Overall, this is an awesome hotel and we would strongly recommend it.
