“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

The Swissotel is always my choice when travelling on buissness to Izmir. The Rooms are first class and the service is exceptional, eating either breakfast or an eveing meal at the hotel will not dissapoint you! It is in an ideal location for other restaurants along the see front and the views from the front of the hotel in the evening looking over the bay are perfect. To end the night there is of course the Swissotel's 9th floor Skybar again looking over the bay through its glass walls. My last visit was probably my 6th visit and I am sure it will not be the last.

The location is very good, about 10 minutes walk to the waterfront where you can find all sorts of cuisines, and plenty of good seafood eateries.

The breakfast was really good. I like that there is also an art "gallery" which is along the corridor as you walk towards the lift.

When we arrived at the hotel was suprised to have the hire car checked underneath with a mirror and also the boot checked. However very security conscious hotel as you walk through a metal detector at the door. The valet was very polite and parked the car. Check in was very efficient and as it was late reception suggested we may wish to go to the restaurant as it was closing in half an hour. Our luggage was taken to our rooms.
The retaurant was outside adjacent to the pool. The service was very good the food was excellent. The room was very well furnished and the bathroom was very well appointed.
Breakfast in the morning was of a good standard.
All in all a good hotel pity I could not take advantage of everything on offer as was only staying for 1 night.

Room Tip: Try and get a room in one of the blocks nearer reception as the block I was in was quite a walk.

This hotel is only several years old. It is superb in every way. Unfortunately we only stayed in this lovely city one night on an Insight/Marvel tour. It is a pity other so called 5 star hotels in Turkey do not reach t6his standard,

Room Tip: Go high on the promenade frontage.

I stayed at this hotel as part of splurge at Easter. I was able to enjoy the warm weather and the excellent and attentive service.The concierge was able to arrange a car to take to see the tomb of St. John and the amazing sites at Ephesus. The seafood restaurant is will worth a visit.
