Incredible hotel with very supporting and helpful staff. You would be hard pressed to find a better hotel and more luxurious stay !! Even the hotel front doorman prevented a taxi driver from ripping me off.........that is how intensely you are looked after in this hotel. Exceptional attention to detail, to make sure that you are taken of.

Yes, there are renovations going on, but during our 3 day stay I never once heard any noise or experienced any disruption. We had a classic view room on the 14th floor which had stunning views over the Bosphorus, well worth it! Every member of staff - without exception - were helpful and friendly, and seemed to love their jobs.... More

Been to the Swiss Otel in Istanbul a few days ago and have to admit that the new concept they established besides their main Hotel building is really outstanding in terms of Service, convenience, luxury and space ! Very recommendable indeed.
