We have stayed for 4 days in Swissotel Bosphorus, and were very happy with everything: cleanliness, service, location, breakfast in the room, comfortable bed and silky linen. Great restaurant options within walking distance like Nobu, Spago, Nusret etc. and wonderful shopping In Nişantaşı. Will definitely visit again!

Recently stayed for business at the Hotel. Enjoyed my daily work-outs and relaxed in the Gym, but the best was how Seda returned with her massage life back into my worn out body and muscles. Strong recommendation for all who are looking for a professional deep tissue massage.

My family and I arrived at the hotel at 12 o'clock. After waiting for the reception, when the idol in charge of the reception started talking. He was rude. He did not give me a room until 3 o'clock because the agency did not deposit money for the hotel. I had it that was settled the day before. And when the delivery room was dirty and they had to change the room. The hotel restaurants do not serve after 11 am. Taxis get stuck in the hotel The hotel is located in a crowded and busy neighborhood. The hotel has no entertainment for children.
