Very nice hotel in western-leaning business orientated city. I had an executive room with views over the sea, which is a 2 minute walk. Excellent well appointed bathroom, with separate tub and large walk-in shower. Nespresso machine in the room was a nice touch. Trendy and slightly expensive 9th floor bar which had terrible band playing when I was there. Gym and pool. Really nice breakfast includes Western and Turkish items. Possibly my only complaint was that, as with every major business hotel chain, you could have been staying anywhere. The one exception was the check for bombs underneath the car before entering the drive and metal detectors at the door; unwelcome reminders of the proximity of global trouble spots.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view

I have stayed at swissotel İzmir several times. İt is completely renovated from five star grand efes otel of İzmir and being operated by Swissotel. Hotel is located at the heart of İzmir very near to Kordon and nice restaurants. Rooms are clean with modern furnishing very nice bathrooms with bathtubs and shower. Wifi is complementary around the hotel and the rooms . Breakfast is relly delicious and served at a balcony overlooking a nice garden. Staff is really helpful. SPA and gym is also nice.
I really recommend this hotel especially for business trips and if you are looking for a stay over in İzmir

We stayed there for 3 nights in April. The hotel has been refurbished a few years ago to become a very luxurious hotel with fantastic facilities. The room is of decent size and very modern. We were upgraded to the executive floor and had our breakfast there during the stay. The floor is quiet and exclusive. Love the facilities. Had 2 pools, one outdoor, one indoor (heated). I tried the one indoor - very cosy. Love the gym. They even have free group classes. Being a gym freak, this is definitely a plus. People were generally very helpful except I find their English not that good; half the time, they didn't understand what I was lookinf for. Another plus for the hotel is its proximity to the beach promenade where all the seafood restaurants are. Would definitely come back to stay if I were to visit Izhmir again.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the pool is better.

Very good hotel with excellent services and personal. The indoor pool is wonderful. Try to get a room with view to the sea-side at A-building. Unfortunaltely no children allowed at Equinox restaurant on top of the hotel.

Very nice hotel with large comfortable rooms and friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful garden with outdoor pool and good restaurant and sumptuous breakfast. The hotel is within walking distance from the beach promenade where you can find lots of restaurants and bars.
