4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is very big containing a convention centre and different buildings housing rooms. The grounds are well maintained and the pool and facilities all first class. Our room in Bldg B Room 2126 was very big, king size bed and overlooked the pool.

Good service, comfortable beds, good breakfast and nice areas to swim and relax. I would recommend for families, business or solo travelers. Easy walk to the Kordon and city centre. Don't hesitate - just book!

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.
