Swissotel The Bosphorus, Istanbul is lauded for its enviable location, offering easy access to shopping, cultural spots, and picturesque Bosphorus views. The hotel's atmosphere strikes many guests as luxurious, with live music and a warm ambiance.

The hotel staff were very helpful and pleasant. The room size is good for the rate and the view of the bosphorus is astonishing. Can see why Istanbul (Constantinople) is the most beautiful city in the world from this location. The facilities are amazing. As a gym lover the hotel gym is as good as it gets. The steam, sauna, heated pool, jacuzzi and hamam are a plus. I would definitely recommend staying at the Swisotel.
