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.
It’s not every day you get to stay in a century-old Turkish prison, refurbished for luxury living.
Our building was designed by Mimar Kemaleddin Bey beginning in 1918 as a prime example of Turkish neoclassical architecture, with an emphasis on pointed arches, ornate tiles, dramatic domes and towers. You can still experience many of those original elements today during your stay with us.
