Convenient location - we stayed at Izmir and booked day tours to Ephesus, House of Mary and Pamukkale. Room had a pretty view of the sea. Multiple restaurants offer a variety of breakfast and dining options even for vegetarians. We had dinner at the Equinox - food was delicious and elegantly presented. Within walking distance to waterfront, other restaurants and... More

Look, like most luxury hotels, the value is poor; however the hotel is excellent. Quiet, professional staff, wonderful beds and bathrooms, and a very nice looking pool (which we were sad to not be able to use.) This is not a "taste of turkey" - this is the break you need sometimes when you want something familiar. While the rooms... More

We have visited this hotel my 6 year old daughter and loved it. Location, service and food is excellent. We also used the pool and were very satisfied. There are lots of attractions nearby the hotel. We would go back anytime to Swissotel Izmir.

Delightful and welcoming staff at the Swissotel in Izmir. The rooms are wonderfully decorated and very comfortable. The views out to the sea are unobstructed. This hotel is really in the center of Izmir. You can walk to many of the best spots in Izmir. We toured Ephesus and it was about a 40 minute drive. Food at Café Swiss... More

We stayed in Izmir for 4 nights and our stay couldn't be better... the hotel is superb and considered one of the best (if not the best) of the city. The hotel is really clean, rooms are spacious and beds were super comfortable... nothing better for a recovering sleep after a long trip. It has a nice outdoor swimming pool... More
