Stroll to the Swissotel, Service Beyond Expectations

Located on the European riverbank of Bosphorus, the Swissotel is a magnificent example of a grand first-class lodging facility. The hotel boasts 497 luxurious rooms including 63 elegant suites. The warm and welcoming grand foyer emits colorful hues of golds, oranges, and red. The hotel's attributes include a fitness center, indoor pool, three tennis courts, full-service holistic spa, and yoga and Pilates classes. A café and buffet breakfast are available along with banquet and meeting facilities.

Spectacular Swissotel Location

Standing atop an impressive elevated setting, the Swissotel commands spectacular views of Turkey's largest city, Istanbul. It's set on 65 acres of historic gardens in the heart of the city and near shops, restaurants, attractions, and nightlife, making this hotel and its surroundings full of history and culture. In the same location the comparable classic boutique hotel Park Hyatt Macka Palas is similar in that it's close to shops and restaurants and different in that it offers a video concierge through your television in your room, along with an iPod docking station.

Historic Places to Visit While in Istanbul

Steps away from the hotel is the 19th century Dolmabahce Palace, built between 1843 and 1856. It's decorated with Baccarat crystal balusters, grand staircases, and ornate coffered gold leaf ceilings. Next, visit Istiklal Caddesi in the heart of Beyoglu, which is a modern avenue reserved for pedestrian traffic only. There you'll find stylish boutiques, cafes, and shops. Finally, take a Bosphorus Cruise for just $11.00 and see places like the Maiden's Tower or a 16th century mosque.

Striking Swissotel Suites and Rooms

Many rooms have a view of the river. When walking into your luxurious room you'll notice its huge windows, creating natural light. Each room is climate-controlled with free Wi-Fi, satellite TV, coffee maker, bathrobe, bidet, marble bath, and complimentary bottled water. The bedding is lush and comfortable. The nearby Ritz Carlton offers a bathrobe and marble bath but does not provide feather beds dressed in Frette luxury linen like Swissotel does.

Bottom Line

The Swissotel and its historical charm are lovely, but call ahead because they are remodeling several areas of the hotel and all amenities are not currently open. Their plan is to complete one wing at a time and finish mid-2015. But you can't beat the price for the value received.
