This was the second time we were in this hotel . They had given me the room with direct Bosporus view on my request and we were very pleased with that . Staff were quick and helpful. Room was clean and everything was as it should be in a five star hotel. I particularly like the lively atmosphere of the hotel and the location. Thanks for everything. We enjoyed our stay . Hope to be back soon .

The positive vibes started from the moment of arrival and continued until we departed , the room was well appointed , good space , clean and full of light and on top of it all a great view ( a shame that it was to the side so one had to go to the window to see the view). Breakfast was very good and staff are very efficient even though it was busy through out the 6 days , Komru made a difference , very efficient and pleasant . Roof 16 is the best place in town ( food , view and atmosphere ) we ate in 4 out of top 10 restaurants in the city but none came close to it in food quality , Taha was great and efficient and Soner is a great chef , one can see his touch all over ! The only area that needs attention is the lobby during the evening , you could sit 20 minutes without being approached , we left twice without being attended to . I think may be hiring extra staff would make you money and improve service. The staff there always looked tired and by 9 pm they are dragging their feet . Overall the best hotel in Istanbul and great value for money . We have stayed in 6 , 5 stars hotels in Istanbul over the years , two are in the same area and this was by far the best experience .

I stayed for 6 nights and attended a conference in the hotel. I ate at the Chalet, Oasis, lobby lounge, Sabaro and also ordered room service The food is very delicious with a wide range of choices. There are stunning views of the Bosphorus from the lobby, and hotel rooms. Staff were attentive and efficient and attended to our every need.

Extremely noisy, not good food and rather bad service

Customer review rating 1.0/5

Anonymous Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

I was in a corner garden view room and had the most unpleasant experience. There was a concert and the noise in my room was deafening. From 10 in the morning as there were practising. It was impossible to rest. after 2 nights of complaining, they move me to the other side of the hotel. they clearly knew that the noise was not acceptable and I have no idea why this room was even rented in the first place. I ordered room service the second night and the food was barely eatable. Undercooked steak and just poor quality. Finally service: apart from the cleaning lady who was extremely nice, people were barely polite. The young lady at the front desk of the breakfast room did not even answer my good morning. Obviously smiling also seemed to be difficult for her! All in all and for the price I was charged, it was a more than mediocre stay. Really unimpressed. I also of course mentioned this when I checked out but apart from receiving a " I am sorry"...nothing.

Well located , clean

We stayed at Swissotel for 4 days in March and we really enjoyed our stay. We were coming back to Istanbul so we checked out other hotels during the 4 days and nothing we saw could compare to Swissotel. The entrance and view of the lobby is like no other hotel in the area. So we booked our 7 day stay for April at Swissotel. The Hotel is immaculate, everyone is very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast was amazing too.
