Swissotel Grand Efes Izmir

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 3, 2011

We recently stayed at this hotel as part of a package tour of Turkey. It was spotlessly clean in every way and the only hotel we stayed in during our trip that had a separate shower rather than one over the bath. Very modern rooms, great food - the only problem was that our stay was so short we didn't have time to enjoy the leisure facilities. The pool looked amazing!! Food, service all great.

We came to Izmir after spending two beautiful days in Istanbul so we were a little underwhelmed by the city. We only wanted to visit Ephesis anyway so we pulled ourselves up.

The hotel, however, raised our spirits completely. On check-in we were told that we were being upgraded to an executive room so were escorted to the Executive lounge. It was pretty early in the morning (8:30am) so understandably the room wasn't ready. The lady at the check-in, however, was really troubled about this and took great pains in getting us a room. It took an hour to get the room organized but the attitude was fantastic.

The room was modern and spacious, although dark. There aren't too many lights in the room. The bathroom was very clean and spacious as well. The breakfast was very good as well, with great service. There is complimentary wifi in the rooms as well.

What took the cake, however, were the facilities. The spa has a complimentary Turkish bath and shower areas which are absolutely luxurious and breathtaking. The pool is huge and the setting is very serene. The salon is quite nice and not hotel-expensive at all so you can splurge!

All in all, a great hotel, very helpful staff and luxurious facilities.

in a somewhat overwhelming and under gratifying city, this property stands out. Inside it takes itself a tad too seriously with rooms from a futuristic james bond set.

the pool is ridiculous- ridiculously good.

This property was simply luxurious and well-placed in Izmir near the sea and the bazaar. Service was impeccable, breakfast was outstanding, and the rooms were immaculate.
