Breakfast is high class and... More

Overall, I loved this hotel and will be very happy to return. While my headline says it's "not quite Great," it still met my expectations for a Swissotel and is easily one of the better well-known hotels in Istanbul. The overall feel of the place from the drive up all the way to the marble bathrooms had a very luxurious... More

Even the simple rooms are very spacious, with huge windows, a lot of natural light. Yes, they have classical and quite old furniture, but the room looks great and it has everything you need to be comfortable as at home... maybe even more... The hotel has all the facilities you could dream of, bars, restaurants, a brand new spa and... More

I stayed there for business. Beds are comfortable (not the best but good enough), Spacious room and bathroom with large counter space. The breakfast is good but unfortunately the hotel is still undergoing construction, so the view to the bosphorus is closed for now. Rooms in higher floors viewing the sea are very nice and not noisy.
