View is spectacular and service, especially in the Executive Lounge, ais excellent, despite major renovation work going on. A great base to explore Istanbul. Staff is extremely friendly. We will come back.

The check in was swift and we were given a room on the 14th floor. It was s nice and comfortable room, with all the... More

Stayed over Bayram for 2 nights. Booked a Suite in the main building. Staff very friendly. Room was spacious and clean. However, the room rate felt excessive especially with the limited restaurant experience and nonavailability of the chosen room due to renovation. Spa fully booked during the days

The hotel is expensive compared to a lot of disturbed facilities due to renovation. Hotel is far from service areas. Taxi services experience is poor. All time requesting more money than in the meter!

This is a grand Hotel with some exceptional views over the Bosphorus. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with free wifi and bottled water. The only problem is that it is being refurbished for the foreseeable future and area are sectioned off including the rooftop terrace/bar. Will come back when the work is complete.

The Swissotel is a little out of the way, for the tourist attractions, but if you don't mind a short walk with some hills there is easy access to public transportation and taxis are inexpensive and very available in Istanbul. the some what out of the way location is worth it for being located near some really nice parks.

The hotel is very good especially in terms of service. No complaints at all. However, it is going through a renovation and you can feel it at times. So select your room carefully so you do not face a the construction site. Location is not bad - good restaurants and boutique shops are within walking distance. You will need a... More

Stayed at Swissotel the Bosphorus for 5 nights. The room was good and quite spacious, but the bed is bad and need to be renewed. My backpain was recurred after slept 5 nights here. When I stayed in Sep 2014, the hotel was still under renovation, so we cannot enjoy the whole area of the hotel. Breakfast was quite good... More

Usually a nice place to stay in Istanbul, but currently undergoing extensive renovation which is quite disruptive. It needs updating, however. The hotel is well located with great views over the Bosphorus. Service quality is usually high, but seems to have slipped somewhat during this period.
