“Excellent modern international hotel in prime central position”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

Top notch modern (2008) hotel built on site of traditional grand hotel in centre of Izmir.
Furnished excellently with modern European design. First class restaurants including breakfast buffet. Full of business travellers during my January trip - but size of outdoor pool suggests it would be a great holiday base as well.

Cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. We have stayed there three times and each time has been excellent. This time for our sons wedding. Check in is speedy with very friendly and most helpful staff. The rooms are spacious and clean, and always well cared for. Breakfast is excellent with a large choice. The pool is lovely, and staff very friendly attending to your every need, and nothing is too much trouble. The Spa is wonderful. Within a short walking distance to the Sea and the Cordon where there are some excellent resturants. Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else and looking forward to our next trip.

I have stayed only one night at this amazing hotel during my Turkey Trip 2011.

Swissotel Grand Efes Izmir is located in the centre of Izmir, close to tourist attractions and business places. They provide complimentary valet car parking for their guests.

Lobby and reception area is very modern, upscale and elegant. Every single member of staff is professional, polite and friendly, but not intrusive - I really liked that there. There is quite strong presence of security, but they are friendly people.

I have booked Premier Room, which was really spacious (36 sqm) and with a garden view. It's not often happening, that I say "WOW" when I enter my hotel room - happened this time. I absolutely loved that. Room was just beautiful. I could easily live in that place. There was a lot of space, but it wasn't empty. Separate working desk with all necessary tools you may need during your stay (like pens, pencils, paper etc in elegant leather etui). Complimentary uncomplicated Wi-Fi access is provided and connection was fast and constant.

You may notice attention to details straight away. Small things, but really nice like personalized message on your phone, quick welcome call (without bothering you if you don't want) and complimentary welcome fruit plate. All requests sent with reservation noted and delivered.

I loved my room design. All amenities were so nicely composed together; no hanging wires or unnecessary items lying around - everything perfectly made and placed. Air Condition was quiet and easy to use; good lighting and lights central switch; coffee/tea making kit with selection of hot drinks included, 2 complimentary bottles of mineral water; well equipped mini-bar; trendy LCD TV with full choice of local & international programs; newspapers, magazines and really good hotel directory makes your stay much easier. I didn't have to call reception for anything - everything was ready for me. In the morning I could see how nice entire hotel looked like from my balcony. Garden was huge (I remind you - we're still in the centre of Izmir) and there were some sculptures everywhere. Absolutely loved that.

Bathroom was another space there to be in loved with. Marble finished (or made of marble to be precise) looked very elegant ant chique. Walk-in rain shower and separate bathtub if you want to choose. Large mirror; fresh, fluffy, white towels and selection of good quality toiletries provided.

Next day I have checked out quite early, but asked reception if I could leave my luggage and car in the garage for few hours to explore the town. There was absolutely not a problem. Straight away there was somebody to help me with that. Check-out was hassle-free and again reception staff was professional on every way, but natural at the same time. I really like that in Swissotel they know, how to listen and then deliver.

I'm a travel consultant, so all these things are important not only for myself, but for my clients as well. It's great to know, that I can sell and recommend Swissotel anytime and my clients would be as happy as I was. Going to Izmir next time that would be definitely my choice. I just hope I will have opportunity to stay longer and be able to use other services Swissotel Grand Efes Izmir has to offer. My review score is strong 5. Thank you.

Room Tip: Ask for upgrades as higher standard rooms are probably even much much better.

The rooms are spacious and the bedding is very comfortable. A very supportive team and concierge service. Very large breakfast buffet. Very close to the sea by foot. Located in a commercial and business area. A ver good choice for every business traveller at a very affordable price.

Room Tip: Pick a room above level 1 ans preferebaly not loking onto the street.

We previously visited Izmir in June and stayed in the Movenpick, it's also a great Hotel and just around the corner from the Swissotel. I would say the Swiss would have the edge, it's big and modern, has an amazing spa, OK pool area, service is good.

Room Tip: To get a sea view, you need to stay on the higher floors and they are executive rooms and more expen...

This hotel is a first class hotel, as good as any we have stayed in. At 125 Euros per night, it was a real bargain. The room was spacious, and every detail was looked after., The hotel is filled with artwork, and the swimming pool is fabulous.
