We stayed at Swissotel Izmir for 8 nights in late April, early May. As we are a family of four, we asked for 2 connecting rooms. When we checked-in, the children’s room was so nicely done, with special bed linen, little bath mats, plush toys, bathroom amenities for children (a spider-man toothpaste, are you kidding me? – my boy almost...

I stayed 2 nights and felt very safe and comfortable in this beautiful hotel and setting. Breakfast amazing Pool side lovely but not had enough time to explore the whole hotel. The art in corridor and garden is lovely and the old pictures give it an art house feel.

Modern hotel, well equipped rooms except no decaf coffee in rooms. Breakfast buffet very nice and pleasant eating on deck in morning. Good selection. Comfortable bed. They could be a little more generous with water in the room complimentary than one bottle per person per day.

Great location, walk to the restaurant area on foreshore, shops, park. Modern hotel, comfortable rooms. Wifi intermittent. Buffet breakfast and dinner had good variety. Glass of wine or beer was expensive.

Efes hotel was a landmark in Izmir decades ago. Few years ago Swissotel chain started to operate the hotel. The service and the food is very good. Breakfast is very delicious and very Turkish. The pool bar is also very good. The pool itself is quite large and relatively deep, which makes the experience very enjoyable. I strongly recommend anyone... More

This usually isn't a problem as I use Filmon but the Internet connection was too slow for this. The bed and bedding... More
