5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

What sets this hotel apart from the rest is the genuine helpful and cheerful nature of the staff. This is not so common, even in the most expensive hotels. The location is perfect, very central for eating out at night and the view from my balcony was beautiful. The facilities,the pool, the gym etc. were superb. Two small things I remember most about my stay: 1) The natural honey straight from the hive which was on offer at breakfast. 2) The waitress who was humming a tune to herself while cleaning the tables. She was clearly enjoying her work. Not cheap but worth every cent.

Close to the waterfront and its many seafood reastaurants, and an absolutely incredible breakfast buffet, but a bit too ultra modern for my taste. That said, a fine hotel in every respect. WRT restaurants, walk to the waterfront, turn right and walk a couple of hundred yards to Deniz -great food, impeccable service and a delicious "dry white wine"

Following a bad experience at another hotel, Swissotel hotel was a safe haven. Rooms are large and most importantly clean and breakfast is worse looking forward to. The staff is very friendly and service minded.

Nothing but good comments for this place. It is excellent in every sense: facilities, staff, food, location. Even value for what you get as its price is very reasonable. For sure on my next trip to Izmir I will stay again there.

The check in process was really efficient and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. The food in the lobby bar was great for a late dinner with a glass of wine. The pool was brilliant and the rooms were really comfortable

The Swissotel in Izmir provides everything a guest needs at a high level: Excellent staff, exquisitely furnished rooms, phantastic food. The outdoor pool is huge and beautifully framed by trees. Furthermore the hotel it is situated just a few minutes by foot from the sea.
