Great hotel close to Taksim square

  • February 2015
The Swissotel is close to Taksim square. The old town is around half an hour away with the train (10 minutes walk). Breakfast was of very good quality and staff was very helpful. Unfortunately the hotel was under renovation during our stay, so the experience was not ideal, however alright. The room was great and worth the money. read hotel review

    Hotel is about a 30 minute drive from the Atatürk Istanbul airport. Once you are at the hotel, you have a very central location in Istanbul (5 minutes from the Taksim Square), 5 minutes in the other direction (Bebek, Ortaköy)

Having been ther before (like 7 years-or-so ago) I `knew` what to expect - that´s why I returned. But I was quite suprized about the renovation of Gym- and pool area: simply superb. The entire pool/gym area: hardly seen any better (cleaner, better-desigend) in several years. The vievw from the rooms are superb, the restaurant is good, but location is not that `ideal` (nothing much in the vincinity (i.e. no shops, no pubs, no restaurants, and limited publöic transport). But if you are fit on foot, 20-30 minutes bring you to where you would want to be in Istanbul ... ( Taksim; Besiktas; or other places of interest). Great, geat garden (in fact ist not a garden - its a veritbale park with jogging trails, and lots of serenity). read hotel review

This hotel deserves its 5 * without 'ifs and buts'. It is already getting old and at the one or another body lacks color or the furnishing is no more 'up to date'. But everything is clean and of good quality. The service and the kindness of the staff is really perfect. Would definitely again check-in there. read hotel review

A hotel, that in its size never a feeling the mass processing leaves. There were daily conventions, nevertheless the staff is trimmed on personal friendly care. Excellent the 5 o'clock tea in the lobby, the breakfast buffet and the restaurant at all. The zimmerelektronik on a panel was not ideal, because susceptible to breakdown, but the services was immediately on the spot. For tourists we have the shuttle bus to the center missed, as well as somewhat more detailed information, for example to istanbulcard. Ideal would be, you could this in the hotel relate. The information, that the translation nearby ... is suggests, that the concierge never there walking. Furthermore is the consultation rather a fortune, if you just returned on duty. A concept did not recognize. Surprising with the wonderful panoramaliftfahrt and never seen, but when especially good experienced detail, -the einmalgebrauchs -toilet brush. Last but not least to mention the best empfangsconciere, the for us set in has, when the private airport shuttle left. read hotel review

The Swissotel the bosphorus is on a hill on the european side of Istanbul. Of many rooms, but also from the restaurant, the lounge and bar with a fantastic view over the bosphorus and the bosphorus bridge. Particularly in the evening it was lovely from there over the hills and roofs of Istanbul view, so that one very good visitors can-or even as a visitor there. The hotel itself is blocked, but in the immediate area raves the life of Istanbul with very much traffic and congestion. For example, st Sofia there are circa 5 kilometer, for which you can ... take a taxi but it was sometimes an hour. The besiktas soccer stadium Istanbul is about 1 kilometer away from the hotel. read hotel review

The hotel overwhelmed already when entering the lobby with a fabulous view of the Bosphorus. Large entrance hall with large glass and inviting places to sit. Large and bright rooms with all comfort a 5 star hotel. You can even pillows after choice delivered to your room. The swissotel is one of the ' leading hotels of the world' belong and it is accordingly also at. Only one negative and already often mentions is the location. To next tram stop is good and happy 15 minutes on foot, and the footpath the Taksim is not less, but this by ugly ... Suburbs and bad passierbare pavements leads. Also one finds in the immediate vicinity no options for shopping. Despite all a recommendable hotel! read hotel review

This hotel, with a magnificent view of the Bosphorus, offers everything you need for a clean stay. You could enjoy wonderful. The hotel is located on a steep slope, consists of an East and West tower with 16 floors. At the top of the West tower is a bar with a fantastic view of the city and the Bosphorus. Otherwise, the hotel is 600 beds, due to its hillside location somewhat confusing: our room was in the 5 ten floor three floors above the pool but one floor below the lobby. Although it was a Swiss hotel, the staff spoke ... almost exclusively in English, which is often difficult Asia sturdy staff to understand. A problem in the rooms available at the desk. Whenever you turned the air conditioning down, the light shone on, which was a bit annoying was. The double bed had only one, although large, down duvet. All in all, seemed like the hotel manager and ancient for participants to be suitable. read hotel review

We spent three wonderful days at the swissotel in Istanbul. The staff is very friendly and tried hard. Without, that we had done it before (Executive business rooms booked last minute on booking. com), could we the fantastic with view over the Bosphorus, the lounge. There was a breakfast and all day snacks and drinks. Since we have, of course, to explore the City wanted we had only used this privilege in the evening-a wonderful retreat after a busy day. We also found to lack of time unfortunately no opportunity, the great Spa and the beautiful outdoor swimming pool. Maybe ... next time. The rooms were very spacious and with a unique view (on the Windows a divan-lovely!) on the Bosphorus and hagia Sofia. The only drawback was the US after three days no consistent decline central operation of the light and the air conditioning. (We were but very detail, perhaps we were not very receptive upon arrival at three o'clock in the morning. But at least the bedside lamp should be switched on separately from each bed. The concierge desk in the business lounge provide us with great tips about the city and advised us, after a small walk to convience tram river in the old town. We would definitely recommend this for a bit real Istanbul to socialise and given the infinity traffic jams, from the hotel prima watch. read hotel review
