First-rate hotel--friendly staff, comfortable room, lovely grounds, excellent food, and convenient location in the heart of Izmir. The pool area is magnificent, a perfect location to relax whether in Izmir for business or leisure. The Grand Bazaar and archeological ruins of ancient Smyrna are a short walk from the Swissotel.

The wide range of facilities offers something for everyone, as does the spread in the restaurants. Guest...

My family and myself prefer to stay in Swissotel Grand Efes for the any occasions when visit the town. Very Friendly staff and good service. I recommend you to prefer the garden view rooms. Also there is many attractions, restaurants, and shops around the property.

Everything was excellent. From the staff to the rooms, from the breakfast to the surrounding places to eat, from the views to the nearby beach. It was also a great experience for my kids playing in the garden, taking bicycles (freely available from the hotel), cycling at the beach and going outside with my wife for shopping. Thanks to Swissotel...

Stayed 3 nights; from check in on the service and attention to detail was outstanding, the front staffed remembered my name from check in on. I used all facilities. Only hiccup occurred during dinner, though they have an extensive wine selection they feature boutique wines. Shame when only 2 out of 9 are available. Other then that no faults found.

From the welcome to checkout handshake by receptionist Merve, this hotel was just perfect. Great location, attentive but nonintrusive service, immaculate rooms and grounds all contributed to my feelings of satisfaction. I don't know if I'll go back to Izmir, but if I did, I would try to stay here. Great place!
