Four Seasons Sultanahmet

It is hard to believe that Four Seasons Sultanahmet was once a bleak Ottoman jailhouse for intellectual dissidents.

By Elite Traveler

A stunning example of neoclassical architecture, it is hard to believe that Four Seasons Sultanahmet was once a bleak Ottoman jailhouse for intellectual dissidents. Located on Tevkifhane Sokak, ‘Jailhouse Street’, the Sultanahmet still bears the inscription Dersaadet Cinayet Tevkifhanesi, ‘Capital City Murder Jail’, on its main gate. The prison exercise yard has been reincarnated as an immaculate hotel courtyard with an elegant Seasons Restaurant glass pavilion serving afternoon tea. Just a stone’s throw away from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, Four Seasons Sultanahmet is situated at the very heart of the city. A boutique hotel with only 65 guest rooms, the spa is exclusively for guests and has separate men’s and women’s saunas.

Top Suite: Marmara Suite

The Marmara Suite’s three private terraces present exceptional views of the historic city center. The high angled ceilings offer a sense of space away from the bustling streets.

The living room has a beautiful fireplace, state-of-the-art TV and a writing desk. At the end of the day enjoy a relaxing meal in the private dining area before soaking in the bubbling whirlpool tub. The luxurious marble bathroom includes a steam shower and its own television.
