I have been impressed with everything from the hotel decoration to the staff service since the very first moment of my entrance until my exit. The concierge team speedily assisted me with the luggage and had the conversation with me along the way to the reception desk for check-in, invigorating my spirit a great deal as if I were the...

Excellent location, excellent service Clean rooms. New design, futniture in the rooms. As usual, staff very helpful, breakfast with good variety of choices. Proximity to Besiktas and Taksim-Nisantasi makes staying in Swiss Istanbul one of the best experience to get in Turkey

Long weekend spent at the Bosphorous Swissotel, simply fantastic. Maximum relax. Facilities and restaurant at the top. Bosphorous view uncomparable. The Spa is amazing. The only remark is that men and women have separate Spa area. That's life... The location is good. Dolmabahçe Palace is few steps away and the Nisantasi shop area is just few minutes away. Just perfect.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
