The hotel is first class, absolutely no complaints. Spotlessly clean, the staff did everything in their power to sort even the smallest of issues. Just a warning to some people who like to walk around the hotel and do their own exploring .....the streets around the hotel are steep....if that is no problem OK......but if you have any kind of mobility issue...don't plan on walking around the hotel. There is a minibar in he room, but I would certainly prefer empty fridge....dispensing machines in the corridors, in the lobby would be a much better idea, in my personal opinion.....they could provide much wider choice and more quantity of a specific item you like.... .....minibars for me are useless...just my personal opinion.

Perfect

Pros: clean, chic, polished, great amenities, great views, roof top bar, courteous friendly staff, great spa
Cons: I wish I knew that the other roof top pool was available to hotel guests, not just the apartment "Living" guests.
Location: Nistansi: 10 min walk, great shopping, cool experience, restaurants too American- I'd eat elsewhere. Near W hotel is chic restaurants & coffee
Wonderful, would definitely stay here again! great location, big, clean modern hotel rooms, great views, lots of greenier, pool is great for hot days!

Nice hotel

Pros: Location , view , service
Cons: transportation
Location: it was kind of in the middle so you can reach the malls easily and also walks on the bosphorus
Everything was great , The staff were friendly , the suite was clean and big , service was really fast , the only problem we had is that it took a while each time to get a taxi ..

Very nice hotel- going back soon

Pros: spa, numerous food options, attentive staff
The hotel offers a variety of good restaurants onsite with a variety of cuisines. The Turkish cuisine restaurant was fabulous- even Turkish diners raved about the food. The spa facilities are chic,modern and beautiful - one of the nicest I been too, and I confess I been to many. The rooms are well-appointed and the bathrooms are large and well-equipped too. Our rooms were supplied with fresh fruits and Turkish delights which was a extra nice touch.

Great Hospitality

We were there from 12/7/10 thri 12/10/10 for 3 nights. The housekeeping staff, room service was one of the best anywhere. They went the extra mile to make sure everthing was good. The restaurant food was good but the wait staff had very little english ability (makes it a challenge to order when they can"t explain the dishes). The food was good but shrimp and sea bass was the only fish available. The coffee was strong and similar to American blends. I had thought Turkish coffee would be a unique experience, but it was not. The concerige was adequate as well as the front desk. The area is minutes from the major sightseeing. I visited two museums whose lack of maintenance reflects a country that needs investment. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms were star quality. This hotel and it's amenties ranks very high. We would certainingly recommend it and would stay there again. I had visited Jerusalem the day before for 4 nights and while the room rates were similarily priced, those in Jerusalem were clean but well beneath the standards of the Swissotel.

Barking Dogs

During a recent sty at The Bosphorous Istanbul, my wife and I were awakened by barking dogs in the middle of the night. When I called the front desk, they said the hotel had 2 Saint Bernards that lived in the hotel. They tried to quiet the dogs to no avail. We were forced to change rooms in the middle of the night in order to get some sleep. The management made no attempt to compensate us for our trouble. Unbelievably bad experience the night before an early departure.

Disappointed

I was disappointed in this hotel during a recent stay. The "ocean view" turned out to be a courtyard view. We had a room in what appeared to be the basement. My sleep was interrupted by barking dogs, cauing me to have a very dim view of this hotel. On a positive note, the beds were comfortable and the desk staff friendly.

Perfect for Business

The Swissotel Bosphorus is the ideal five star business hotel for a top executive with a good sized expense account. Everything is ala carte from food, internet and any other amenities required. I have to say it was a beautiful hotel with stunning views and the meeting rooms second to none. The spa and exercise facilities were excellent, especially the tennis courts that overlook the Bosphorus and the staff most accommodating. High end designer stores, excellent restaurants and a bank to top it off, right on the hotel property. Close to Taksim Square (a 5 TL taxi ride), 30 minutes from airport (in good traffic), and a tram ride away from the Sultanamet and Grand Bazaar. Would I stay here again, yes on the company's account. On my own, probably not. I would stay somewhere more centrally located, possible near the Sultanamet area.

I was disappointed

The hotel is excellent from service and fascility poit of view .. but actually I chose this hotel because it was mentioned in this website that they offer you a SEA VIEW room which cost much more then the park view.. you see amazing photos which is fascinating .. but I was fully disappointed because I spent very much money to face a HOTEL OTHER SIDE VIEW !!! .. and hardly I can see the sea .. I don't know whom is responsible the web site or the hotel but what I am sure is that I will not trust both anymore .. kingmuayad@yahoo.com
