“Super stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Only being here for a single night but you immediately know that things are ok as soon as you arrive. The entry, reception and most of all the room. We arrived in the evening so I can't say anything about the surroundings and we also decided to stay in for dinner which wasn't a mistake either. The lobby bar has a nice staff, questions we had were answered in a professional way and as almost everywhere; very friendly.

We decided to eat in on the 9th floor where you find a nice restaurant. The food was really good and again, friendly a staff. It's a great way to combine dinner and work. We had some good advise on the whine that went very well with the lamb chops.

The room was spacious, nice bathroom and even a small balcony. Free Wi-FI and complementary fruit and water just makes it a great place to stay.

I'll be back here.

This hotel located in the heart of Izmir, is one of the symbols of the city. Was taken over by Swissotel and after a long renovation period is now in service.
I had the chance to stay for one night. Was very excited to see the hotel after renovation. And unfortunately I was disapointed. The hotel still looks old. Doesn't have a shiny atmoshpere. I stayed in Block C. Is a longway from the reception and you have to follow a labyrinth to find the elevator to the room. (The old picture collages of the hotel on the walls through the coridor is very nice by the way)
The room is nothing fancy, is a standart 4-5 star hotel room.
My friends who stayed in the other blocks said that the rooms very nice and large. Maybe the problem was in the block that i stayed.
The tables and chairs in the meeting rooms were old and scracthed.
The hotel building is very wide so you have walk long coridors to reach your destination. But I will not complain on that. They prefered to stay flat instead of building a tower and it's much more appreciated.
As a result I don't see any difference of this hotel from the Hilton (one block behind). Hilton is old, yes, but is much more cheaper....

Room Tip: Stay away from Block C.

I traveled to Izmir and chose this hotel because of its location and good feedback that I'd found in the Internet. And it was really lovely stay - very good rooms full of facilities that you need or even do not:). Important point is that hotel provides SPA (sauna, jacuzzi, pool) for free! But if you want to have a massage (plenty of kinds) you have to pay that in fact is explainable.

We stayed for three nights and could return again and again. The staff were very welcoming, the room was immaculate and the food was excellent. Chilled out in the sauna and Turkish bath and then enjoyed the poolside. An excellently situated haven of luxury in this bustling city which caters for every need. One of the best breakfast spreads ever. Also well worth knowing that the Havas bus from the airport stops a few metres away from the hotel

We stayed here for 4 nights with our two little children (6y,1y) and that was a wonderful experience.
Best location, Nice and clean rooms(classic), beautiful garden with play ground for children, nice pool and snack bar by the pool with special menu for children, very complete breakfast.

Unfortunately I had only scheduled one night here before flying back to Istanbul. I have stayed at Swissotels before and they are always superb. They think of everything and it was a pleasure to stay here, if only for the night. We dined at their restaurant and afterwards my husband wanted to go back again just to eat their crispy-skinned duck (not to mention the chocolate dessert with the Persian fairy floss!) The food was beautifully presented and the service immaculate. A welcome oasis after touring the Western parts of Turkey.
