Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My three-day stay at the Swissotel in Istanbul was fantastic. The rooms were not only aesthetically pleasing but also very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful, adding a positive touch to my overall experience. The diverse restaurant options provided excellent choices, and the food quality was great. The Executive Lounge with it's amazing view was a highlight, offering exclusive service in a relaxed atmosphere. Overall, I highly recommend the Swissotel for a delightful and comfortable stay in Istanbul.

I did not have a chance to stay in the hotel but I had a priviledge to have a tour around the hotel and see the premises with the Swissotel sales manager Ms Melike Korur. I would like to thank Melike for hospitality, proffesional approach and friendly atmosphere she created during my visit. I recommend Swissotel for staying and for holding events.

Istanbul, Türkiye7 contributions12 helpful votes
I’ve been to many brunches all over the world, and in Istanbul in many five star hotels. The brunch in Swisshotel Bosphorus is by far the best!!!!! Everything was so delicious that, I wish I had a bigger stomach 😄 The selection, the taste, the quantity, the food preparation, the quality is by far the best! I would like to thank you especially to the chef Ibrahim Ozyaman for the various selection items such as seafood (by far the rishest in Istanbul!), the meat, vegetarian, street food, sushi, and various kitchen selections all over the world such as paella, sushi, lobster roll; gnocchi, kokorec (special to Turkey), and many more that I cannot even name! All the recipes were by far the best! The team was so attentive, and there is a live music that I cannot get enough of! Thank you all!!!!

I've been at Swissotel four times now and every time I truly believe that this hotel is the best choice I could ever make. The level of luxury at Swissotel is outstanding, every time that I come back I found the service level to be upgraded in every detail and the costumer care is something taken pretty seriously. Especially this last stay has been relaxing and comfortable beyond my thoughts, and I really want to thank all the staff members that have taken care of us. Firstly I'm really thankful from the bottom of my heart to Ms. Zeynep the Guest Service Manager, who organized our stay in every detail: the level of luxury and comfort we experienced was remarkable. She's not only a brilliant Manager, but especially her care for every single detail ( which she personally checked ) made us feel like family members at Swissotel. I've been in Istanbul eight times and I have never seen the beauty of Istanbul through my room view like this time. I also thank the breakfast staff, Mr. Ali for his gentleness, Mr. Kerem for his notable service and international approach and especially Ms. Özge for her impeccable professionality, accuracy and the warmest welcome which she gave us every morning. I'm also very grateful to the concierge staff: Mr. Cenk for his courtesy, Mr. Alp for his great explanation of the city, and especially Mr. Müjdat for his incredible problem solving capacity, his extraordinary humanity and elegant taste in location suggestions. Then Mr. Mehmet and Mr. Cengizhan for really taking care of every one of our needs; and lastly Mr. Fatih for his cordiality at checkout. There's nothing more pleasant than to be remembered and welcomed so warmly every time. To my Swissotel family: kendinize iyi bakin. Görüşmek üzere.
