We would definitely stay at this hotel again if visiting Izmir. Either on business or holiday. Great staff, great location and large well appointed rooms. Everything was spotlessly clean and it felt Covid safe. Our only disappointment was that we were not staying longer. Finally we would recommend a sunset walk along the vibrant promenade preferably at sunset. Lots of activity and many places for a drink or evening meal.

Serious overall staff issue! Unfortunately most of the staff is not capable and not trained well. For example, waiter and barmaid couldn’t suggest me a coctail with prosecco. Breakfast was a bit crowded and the staff couldn’t manage it well. The design of food tables didn’t allow serving more people. On the other hand, this hotel has a perfect location. Its garden is very large and peaceful. A small playground for kids is a plus. Pool was very nice and clean. Some staff are over expectations!

I am visiting Turkey from United States and both Izmir and Swiss Hotel Izmir exceed my expectations. Swiss has definitely Mandarin Oriental level luxury and customer service. The check in process was less than 5 mins. I would like to say special thanks to receptionist and concierge folks: Sadi, Alp and Ezgi. I strongly recommend you to get the breakfast package. It is beyond this world. It includes almost every single cuisine and local as well. Service is fast. I want to say special thanks to Merve for the service at the breakfast area. And for zafer being so kind after me breaking a glass by mistake. Lastly, if you are someone loves working out and prefers high end gym, spa services; Swiss provides the best. I strongly recommend this hotel and I am definitely coming back. Thank you Swiss Izmir!

We feel very at home here.
