“spectacular”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

this is a first rate hotel - easy walking distance to the center of the city, wonderful and informative staff, excellent rooms, spotlessly clean, quiet, terrific amenities. had to miss the breakfast (early morning flight), so can't comment on that. okay, it's not a boutique hotel (part of a relatively small chain), but if this hotel is any indication, the swissotel chain has found the proper accommodation formula.

We loved this place. We stayed one night with our tour company. The location is fabulous. This hotel rivals any 4-5 star hotel in the US. The staff was friendly. The hotel rooms were modern and clean. The bathroom was hands down my favorite. They had a Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower with a rain shower. The breakfast was great with tons of fruit and pastry options. Overall a great experience. We all wished we could have stayed longer.

Everything was perfect. Modern & tasteful decor. Large room with beautiful marble bathrrom. Choice of pillows. Everything you expect in a 5 star property. Close to the sea. Friendly efficient staff. Spacious public areas with interesting art. Would defintely return and recommend the hotel to friends. We wished we had based ourselves here for the Ephesus tour instead of staying at Selcuk. It would have been worth the extra time from this hotel (60kms). Another option would have been Kusadasi but we didn't explore this option.

We've stayed last weekend with my family. Hotel is really big and high class one. Very successfull spa center, Personnel is extremely attentive and smiling. Room quality is one of the best and very few things to criticize. However as a man of quality background, following are my critics :
Poolside personnel has strong goodwill to serve&help but a bit disorganised. what you ask is coming but with some delay.
Summer-time, everybody is at the open swimming pool but this does not mean that attention is not necessary at the indoor pool, some small dirtiness is detected at the indoor pool at very early time.
Hotel is very spacious. but it should be expected that on a sunday morning, although breakfast is between 07.00-10:30, everybody will come at 10.00 :)
Therefore there was lack of tables since so many people came at a very short period to have breakfast. In such a big hotel, there should be extension possibility for the breakfast hall.
There was wedding ceremony every night, but thanks to spaciousness of the hotel, we did not hear anything nor get disturbed.
In anycase I thank to hotel management for the level of hospitality of the hotel personnel. It was really notable.

Room Tip: Try sauna or steam bath

This is the best value for money 5 star hotel I have ever stayed in.

First it was cheap; far cheaper than many hotels that are far inferior.

Room was large clean and comfortable with comfortable King bed.

Amazing spa and wellness centre with huge gym full of modern equipment.

Pool was good and lobby area nice.

Two fantastic restaurants:
By the pool for a great fish meal the sea bream was amazing.

Or on the top (ninth floor) for fine dinning where the crispy duck with plum sauce was top class.

If I was to pick a downside which is hard- the wine list was a little pricey and the internet (free) was on the slow side in our room.

If you are going to Izmir stay at Swissotel you will not regret it.
