Best Hotel Experience

We booked this last minute, and it completely blew our minds out of the water. We went to the front desk and asked if an upgrade was possible...The front desk hooked us up with a club room with an amazing view of the Bosphorus Bridge. Absolutely great view. Rooms were squeeky clean. Very Spacious. Beds are normal sized for European hotels. Every one at the hotel had a great attitude and such service. Absolutely greatest stay of my entire life. Highly Recommended.

Excellent Location

Fantastic location but rooms need upgrade. Doesnot look like Swissotel room. There are many 3 star other hotels with better hotel rooms nowadays. Could be cleaner.

Excelent Hotel

Hotel extremely good, try to get Bosphorus view as sensational. Unfortunatly had park view. Gaja rooftop restaurant well worth a visit. Taxi availability good and close to city centre. Overall a good experience.

Perfect choice for Istanbul

The Swissotel is a stellar property in a location that is unbeatable. You can easily walk from the hotel to the neighborhood of Nişantaşı and other areas. The hotel staff is extremely accommodating, and the rooms are spacious, smart, and extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend getting a room with a Bosphorus view. After all, you've come all this way to Istanbul to have a garden view?! All in all, my experience at this property could not have been any more amazing.
