“Just perfect.....”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for 5nights and it was just perfect.....

The staff is brilliant and very helpful....the service if excellent....And the hotel amenities are just fabulous....

It's probably the best location you could stay at.....most of the popular restaurants are about 5-15 mins walking from this hotel...

It's just about 3-5 min walk to the beautiful pier......

Another real convenience was getting to this hotel from the airport.....just get off at Izmir airport ....get on the haves bus with is an excellent clean ac bus....it drops you with whatever luggage you may have right at the entrance to this hotel....at the cost of 20tyl a person.......this is slot cheaper than taking a cab from the airport......

Once again a big thank you to the entire hotel staff...

Swissotel was an excellent hotel conveniently located in the heart of Izmir. The breakfast was delicious and bountiful...certainly enough to keep you going most of the day. The hotel was a short 5 minute walk to the harborfront, 15 minutes to the bazaar and all of the sights...that is if you can tear yourself away from the clean, comfortable and lovely poolside!

Swisshotel was a wonderful place to stay. Aquarium restaurant was excellent. Fronts on park square directly on the harbor. Easily 20 cafes within 5 minute walk. Staff was very helpful. Excellent rooms and ultra comfortable.

This is what defines a 5 start or even maybe a 6 stars hotel. It is without a doubt the best hotel I have been all over the world.
the positive:
1. Attention: Very personalized. The concierge is beyond help. They will make you feel they know you from before. Very friendly, honest and kind.
2. Rooms: Large, very conformable bed, very modern and CLEAN!. Shower was amazing. It goes beyond normal as they have an office where you can set up your computer, so you are comfortable in your own space.
3. The hotel: Offers a substantial amount of complementary amenities. This is beyond expectation. The swiming pool, the indoor pool and jacuzzis, the relaxing spa ( I will categorize it as #1 in the world so far). The turkish and wet bath, the sauna and the innumerable kind of shower types that the location offers for you to experience. It is just perfect. The gardens is like an oasis in a comboluted city.
4. Food: The best. Breakfast are just perfect in the buffet. But is not any buffet, It goes from salmon and different kind of Fish to regular cereal. The restaurants in the hotel are also the best, the food of the restaurant below the swiming pool is perfect.
5. Location. Close to everything. Walking distance to all the restaurants in front of the bay. The hotel will suggest you the best and trust them they are the best.

Negative: I am surprise to say but this hotel is just perfect. Do not doubt I will comeback

The rooms are very good and well equipped. Internet connection is functioning well. Staff is friendly. Breakfast is rich, but the fruit smell of mould.
The hotel is well situation closed to the ocean. This is a great advantage if want to go out for dinner.

Quite possibly the most beautiful hotel I have ever seen - definitely the best I've ever stayed in. The staff were more than exceptionally friendly and helpful, the food was amazing with a wonderful selection. The rooms were brilliant - spacious, comfortable, with air conditioning and a brilliant view. The pool is amazing. There are so many activities around the hotel to keep you occupied and there is a spa complex too!!
If you're in the Izmir region of Turkey and have the cash to enjoy yourself - you MUST stay at the Swissotel Grand Efes! I love Turkey, and the beautiful weather made this hotel evening better.
There aren't enough good things to say!

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of either the ocean or in towards to pool and grass - beautiful!

The best all round hotel in Izmir. The service is excellent, the rooms very well appointed, and the facilities cover all requirements. Used the gym, spa, pool, and exec lounge, and couldn't find fault with anything.
