“Superbly designed hotel with service and food to match!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

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).

Room Tip: We were on the second floor, block B, facing the garden and had no problem with A/C noise. There is...

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.
