We have just spent seven nights at the Swissotel. We chose it mainly on the basis of its Tripadvisor ratings and booked at the pay-up-front, no-cancellation rate. At the end of our stay we could not understand how anyone could give this place less than a five-star, excellent rating. The hotel is centrally located near the coast but also designed around a garden which means there is a calm area inside after the bustle of the market or heat of the not-to-be missed Ephesus tour. Facilities such as pool with refreshments, iced-towels etc, spa are all great. Great food with huge breakfast buffet (and iftari buffet during Ramadan). Afternoon tea for two on the terrace is delicious. The only disappointment was that they could not arrange a courtesy car from/to the airport (but we used Turkey Transfers and they proved very efficient).
