This is a modern, clean, and hospitable hotel. Just a few minutes from Dolmhace and then just a little longer for Galataport. The staff was very welcoming and recommended some great restaurants and places to go. Really appreciated their kindness and attention. Thank you!

The Swissotel is a beautiful property just a stone's throw from the Bosphorus. Very convenient to walk from here to Dolmhace, Galataport, etc. The staff was extremely professional and helped us make the most of our short stay in this hotel. Really enjoyed the buffet breakfast too. Would recommend this hotel to any one!
