The Four Seasons Sultanahmet Aya rooftop lounge

Our century-old neoclassical home is a tranquil sanctuary in the middle of Istanbul’s Old City, Sultanahmet, bounded by the mystic waters of the Sea of Marmara and the Bosphorus. While just steps away from top historic attractions such as the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, our 65-room Hotel offers a calming space filled with charm and elevated Four Seasons care from our more than 200-person-strong team.

Tucked into the maze of Istanbul’s old town lies the Four Seasons Sultanahmet, a lovely hotel with only 64 rooms. The Four Seasons historic architecture creates a variety of unique rooms, all nestled around a beautifully landscaped courtyard.

Formerly a neo-classical Turkish prison, the building has been renovated into a luxurious 64-room boutique hotel. The building is formed around a central open courtyard, with a lovely garden and an al fresco restaurant in the centre. The rooms and suites are very spacious and unique in design, decorated in a traditionally Ottoman style. Many rooms have outstanding views, with the highlight being the hotel’s large roof terrace looking directly over the beautiful Hagia Sophia and old town in one direction and out towards the Bosphorus in the other – probably the best views in all of Istanbul!

Offering 65 guest rooms and suites, the Four Seasons provides an intimate atmosphere in the heart of this exotic city. The hotel’s historic architecture creates a variety of unique rooms and suites, all nestled around a beautifully landscaped courtyard. All rooms feature a refrigerated private bar, large plasma TV, and are equipped for wired and wireless internet. Lavish marble bathrooms include a deep soaking bathtub and separate shower, small LCD TV and separate WC.
