A decent location near the dohlmabache palace. Spectacular views from the executive lounge across the bosphorus! Executive lounge staff are very helpful and the breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres are excellent. The indoor pool is refreshing, but it is a pity that the outdoor pool is not open while the reconstruction is under way.

the location of swissotel is fantastic.the rooms are very clear and have best view.I think deposit should be reduced.(200 OR 250 INSTEAD OF 500$ for per room). It would be better If outdoor pool and garden are opened as soon as possible.

Having recently stayed at Swissotel The Bosphorus, I now have a new favorite hotel. The staff was incredibly professional, courteous and efficient. The hotel's location is amazing with a beautiful view of the Bosphorus. It was such a pleasure having breakfast each morning in the open-air dining area overlooking the river. The food was excellent. I was there for a... More

Very good rooms and service at the hotel. The view special to the Golden horn and the bridges. Excellent food and quality beds. Our family had a very pleasant week. Our grandchild - 2 year old - had a good time.

The hotel overall was great according expectations. The view from the room though was simply breathtaking! A big window allowed for a view to the bosporus and the bridge which made it difficult to leave the room! Food services were also great, both for breakfast and lunch with a big variety of dishes! Only flaw would be that its not... More

After getting off a long plane ride- we were tired but excited to finally be in Istanbul. Upon walking in the staff made us feel right at home and the sprawling views of the Bosporus from the lobby took our breath away.
