I stayed there in my second trip to Istanbul and since then every time I try something else for various reasons. The service is excellent. The breakfast with the view of the Bosphorus is amazing. Very close to Taksim but much quieter.

The SPA in this hotel is very nice. I love this hotel and it's worth every penny you pay for it! Staff could be more polite sometimes, other than that it's a pleasant stay with a beautiful view. I very much liked the view of the Bosphorus. The quality of the breakfasts in the room could be better.

Superb room , very friendly, trained staff. Superb food in the Swiss Café. The concierge was extremely helpful and courteous. The security of the hotel was impressive without being intrusive. The bar prices are very steep...but the view makes it worth it.

Really enjoyed our stay at this luxury hotel. Staff were courteous and excellent. The breakfast setting is really great as is the bar. Used the gym which is pretty well equipped for a hotel this size.

I first visited the Swisshotel as a non-resident guest in 1998. I loved it so much that I virtually adopted it for the rest of my stay. I've been to Istanbul five times since then (the last in 2013) and have made it a point to at least visit, if not stay there. It is my favorite hotel in the... More

Consider this hotel if you are staying in town for pleasure or business. It is fascinating inside and out. Watch out for prices though. They are $$$$$ when it comes to food. The waiters aren't trained professionally. You will have to ask several time to for example get right silverware.

This is a classic quality 5 star hotel that hasn't really changed over the years. Very good sized rooms, friendly staff and good in room working conditions if on business. Non Bosphorous facing rooms have un- inspiring cityscape view. Free wifi and in room bottled water was good to see. Breakfast buffet choice very good as you would expect -... More
