“Great hotel”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Stayed in the Swiss hotel with family for a week while we were packing up to leave turkey. Staying at the hotel always feels like a vacation rather than a business stay and this time was again the same.

A remodeled, hi tech hotel in Izmir. The TV had English speaking channels so we could catch up on news at home. The outdoor pool was huge. Breakfast had abundant good choices. Close to the water and many good restaurants.

We were upgraded when we arrived which was a real plus. But even without this the reception was excellent. Good location. Breakfast was good. wi-fi was a bit suspect as it often dropped whilst you are using the internet.

The property is perhaps the best in Istanbul for a hotel. The location is perfect, the hotel is completely renovated, the rooms are excellent even compared with the Hilton that is just around the corner. But the service has a lack of quality compared with Swissotel Singapore. I had to expend one night without AC and lights because nobody went to check my room. Next morning one person went and sorted out the problem in less than 5 mins.

As part of a Scenic Tour we stayed here one night. This a hotel that knows what service is all about. The rooms were luxurious in every way with excellent beds & linen. The breakfast was well laid out & there was so much to choose from ,all of excellent quality. This is the first time we have stayed in this hotel group but we will be looking to stay in as many places that have Swissotels.
Thank you for a wonderful nights stay.

This oldest hotel of Izmir CBD has the best view and the largest gardens in the center of the city. After taking over some time ago Swissotel had made brilliant work inside of the building. Instead of a standard room I highly recommend paying a bit extra and staying as the Executive Business Lounge guest as this floor is very quite and they have a kind of VIP lounge to serve you free lunch and dinner. After complimentary breakfast you get lunch at the executive lounge between 2-5 pm and dinner between 6-8pm. All open buffet and degustation menu. (Artichokes dishes yum!) Room service excellent. Breakfast menu very very rich ad is excellent. Of course after all these eating one can either go out for sightseeing, have a stroll along the sea (Kordon) or go to the gym and swimming at the hotel. Gym is incredibly sufficient, modern and spacious enough. One of my best stays at any hotel anywhere in the world ever... As a final note staff members are very courteous, attentive.
