Four Seasons Istanbul
The Four Seasons at Sultanahmet - Istanbul, Turkey
Checking in isn't a life sentence like it was for the guests of this former jail. A prime example of Turkish neoclassical architecture, the landscaped courtyard used to the prison's exercise yard. King-size beds now stand in for the stone slab beds, and the cuisine is a far cry from bread and water.
