Expert reviews

Fodors review:

“What a rehabilitation success story: a former prison just steps from Topkapı Palace and Aya Sofya is now one of Istanbul’s premier accommodations, where rooms and suites are luxuriously outfitted and overlook the Sea of Marmara, the Old City, or a manicured interior courtyard.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Istanbul.

Frommers review:

“Built in Ottoman Turkish revival style at the end of World War I, what is today the Istanbul flagship of the upscale Four Seasons chain was originally built as a prison to house political dissidents.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Istanbul.

CNN review:

“Built in 1918, this Four Seasons hotel is so unabashedly opulent you’d never guess it was Istanbul’s first prison. Its 65 rooms are individually decorated with opulent furnishings, handwoven kilim rugs and original Turkish artwork.”

Telegraph review:

“This luxurious hotel is actually fashioned from a late-Ottoman era prison once used to incarcerate writers, artists and other dissidents, though it has been so brilliantly converted you’d never guess. Its location in the heart of the city means it’s a stone’s throw from many of Istanbul’s most famous sights.”
