We had the good fortune to attend an international congress at this hotel. The total experience was exceptional. Very friendly staff that was continuously trying to be of service. Facilities were very nice and the cleaning staff were excellent.

We had a very nice stay in Izmir at the Swissotel Grand Efes. The pool was very relaxing especially when the temperature went up to 40°C. The buffet for breakfast was perfect.
The rooms are big enough for a pleasant stay and the bathrooms were beautiful.
There are several shopping areas and musea on walking distance from the Swissotel.

Room Tip: During summer, the rooms on the East side are preferable due to the heat of the sun. Waking up wit...

We landed in Izmir totally new to Turkey - 1st time in this country. What a 1st impression by Swissotel Izmir! The superbly friendly staff made us felt so at ease. We were escorted to the room and shown around the facilities.
The guest relation officer- Tugce is wonderful. She organized small souvenir for us since this is our first time to Turkey. She explained things to do and see in Izmir plus the places that locals eat and drink across the straits by the ferry.
This is probably the best hotel we ever stayed, in terms of friendly staff, make us felt like we do not want to leave ever....

Our third summertime stay here - we come back because we love the diversity of this relaxed but dynamic city (and lack of tourists) in combination with staying at a hotel that is like a resort. There are places where you look out at a gloriously landscaped palm garden or across a wide harbour and hardly realise that just minutes beyond this you can be in the bustle of the old bazaar or trying to select from miles of lively restarants and bars along the Kordon. An indicator of the excellence of service is the regular delivery of iced, spa-scented flannels to all those lounging around the pool - pure luxury and much appreciated.

I stayed in Swissotel Grand Efes Izmir for two days. my stay was very comfortable and the hotel is very good for most of it's departments. I was not satisfied by one department only and for that I have already written to them.it was a small problem of time only at the sauna and for that I can't rate the hotel below it's mark because I was fully satisfied with all other services.
I would like to say to all the tourists from all the corners of the world that they may select the hotel for their stay and I hope you will not be disappointed.

Just a perfect hotel. Friendly personnel., very kind. Chique enter of the lobby. Very safe, in the elevator you have to use the card of the room, otherwise the elevator does'nt work.
Rooms are big, with flatscreen, beautiful bathroom with soap and lotion, upgrade for seasight,
executive room, costs 60 € per night then you get a free lunch between 14.00 and 17.00 , within free drinks and also between 18.00 and 20.00 with and very close to the centeralcoholic drinks for free. Also a good filled mini-bar in the room. Nice swimmingpool with free towels.You might need that in the summer.
Location is very good near the coast and shopping center Kemeralti and Alsancak, nice shopping.
One negative point, Drinks are too expensive,one beer about € 10,1 .Had a good time here

For both business and leisure. Very good quality price ratio. Maybe tea and coffee a bit overpriced, and like in Piazza San Marco in Venice.
Good food. Friendly personnel. Good interior. I stayed in a suite with my family, which was simply superb. I am used to stay for business as well. My first choice in Izmir. You will not be disappointed!
