Hello hello, my dear ones,
this post is for you who accompanied me during my trip to Istanbul last week and I was asked to review the Four Seasons hotel in the Historical City.
Firstly, I will talk about the location that I found the ideal for those who come to visit the city of Istanbul for the first time. The hotel is only a block from all the main sights. So if you’re going there, stay in this area for one or two nights at most.
The other nights I recommend the Bosphorus region, where the locals go and are located some of the coolest restaurants and bars.
The four seasons Sultan Ahmet is quite small and has no pool, beauty services, and a satisfactory spa. But I understood after understanding a little about the historic tower of the hotel, which in the 60s was a prison used to imprison young writers, musicians, and artists, even there is the story of the movie “midnight express”.
The Seasons restaurant sits inside a glass pavilion in the center of the hotel garden where you can enjoy tasty meals and the famous Sunday brunch surrounded by stunning décor with Turkish art and Ottoman-era features.
The Hotel also has the A’YA Lounge on the terrace which allows a beautiful view of the historic center. The Lounge serves alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and also offers a menu of savory snacks.
Despite being small, I had a good experience at the hotel. Treating accommodation The Four Seasons offers rooms with very comfortable mattresses and espresso machine. The individual bathroom disappoints a bit for being very small, but nothing that would disrupt my comfort in the hotel.
Talking about the architecture of the hotel, because it is an old building from the Ottoman period, it is considered a place with neoclassical style. It’s lovely to see how time only values these places.
The interior of the hotel is all decorated with works of Turkish craftsmen and without abandoning the Ottoman decorations, present all over the place and also has a very beautiful landscaped courtyard.
The location of the hotel is also very good but, as I said at the beginning of this post, I recommend staying in the historic area for a maximum of days so that you can enjoy your trip more in the good restaurants and ballads of Istanbul.
The Four Seasons is privileged by the incredible view of the Blue Mosque, one of the most visited places in the city.
Leave your sights here at the Four Seasons experience and be sure to also read my list of favorite hotels in Istanbul.
