Four seasons at Sultanahmet
Not many hotels are former prisons, still fewer this good looking. The grand neo-classical building has just 65 rooms, making it one of the more intimate Four Seasons. Marble and tile dominate the interiors, and the opulence of the place is mirrored in the superb rooms.
The historic mosques, minarets and bazaars mix with a confident, modern and even fashionable scene in the city where east meets west. The buildings around Sultanahmet and the Old City are truly awe-inspiring, and there are some wildly evocative views to be had of the Bosphorus River. These couple with truly world class restaurants and bars.
