This is a great hotel in İstanbul. Great location and views. Professional staff and outstanding facilities. The breakfast is one of the best in the world. I want to thank the concierge, reception, room service, housekeeping, and staff at Swiss Cafe for making it such a wonderful experience.

I spent 2 pleasant nights at Swissotel where I found a maximum of comfort, service, functionality. I also enjoyed its scenic view on the Bosphorus, beautiful garden, central location, lively atmosphere of the reception lounge, copious breakfast, modern equipment, traditional decor ... In such a large hotel I could feel sometimes a little lost.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
