The iconic hotel in the heart of the historic peninsula has been named the World’s Best Hotel and Europe’s Best City Hotel in Travel+Leisure magazine’s 2023 World’s Best Awards survey, a unique achievement that emphasises Turkey’s position in the global tourism industry.

Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet, which has received numerous awards for its quality-oriented service approach, ambience and excellent facilities, has been named the World’s Best Hotel and Europe’s Best City Hotel in Travel+Leisure magazine’s highly anticipated 2023 World’s Best Awards survey. Highlighting the hotel’s outstanding achievements, these awards also confirm its role in promoting Turkey as one of the world’s most important tourism destinations.

Commenting on the hotel’s new international accolade, Serap Akkuş, Hotel Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet, said: “We are honoured to have been named the best hotel in the world in Travel&Leisure magazine’s 2023 World’s Best Awards. This achievement clearly demonstrates the dedication of our staff and the exceptional service they provide, and emphasises our commitment to providing our guests with unforgettable experiences. This great achievement would not have been possible without the endless support and contribution of our entire team. In the future, we will continue to offer unforgettable experiences to every guest who steps through our doors.”

Located a few steps away from the historical beauties of Istanbul, Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet has been offering unique guest experiences since 1996. After an extensive two-year renovation, the hotel reopened its doors in 2022 and continues its journey as the only five-star luxury hotel on the historic peninsula.

During the renovation, the interiors of Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet were redesigned based on the hotel’s previous neoclassical Turkish architecture, unique location and successful history in luxury hospitality. All rooms were refurbished with the same design language and approach applied to the public areas. A hidden gem in the heart of Istanbul, the hotel offers guests a highly authentic and unforgettable stay in an environment where local culture and values are optimally integrated.

Each of the hotel’s excellent restaurants offers guests a special gastronomic experience with unique flavours created by Executive Chef Özgür Üstün and his team. The Courtyard Restaurant, which offers a visual feast with its renewed landscaping, offers flavours from modern Anatolian cuisine, while the energetic Süreyya Terrace Lounge serves with stunning views of the Hagia Sophia Mosque, Blue Mosque and the historical peninsula.

Four Seasons offers the best of Istanbul to its guests with two aesthetically complementary hotels with different styles. Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet welcomes guests in its historic building built in 1918-1919, while Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Bosphorus offers a luxurious stay in the historic setting of an elegantly restored 19th century palace on the banks of the Bosphorus.
