Tophotel mit super Spa und hervorragendem Service

Das Swisshotel ist genau die ideale Unterkunft für Reisende, welche einen Städtetrip mit Luxus verbinden möchten. Super nettes und zuvorkommendes Personal, riesig leckeres Frühstücksbuffet und das Spa ist top! Eine Oase der Ruhe am Bosphorus!

Rien à critiquer, tout parfait. Le prix du petit déjeuner un peu cher, car pas compris dans le prix de la chambre.

Etwas enttäuscht...

Infolge laufender Renovationsarbeiten im Hotel waren die Hauptattraktionen des Hotels, die Dachterrasse und der Pool, nicht nutzbar, was während der Hotelbuchung übrigens auch nicht ersichtlich war. Ohne diese Attraktionen ist das Hotel nur Durchschnitt und auch nicht unbedingt zentral gelegen. Das Hotel hat diesbezüglich den Gästen gegenüber während des Aufenthalts kein Entgegenkommen gezeigt.

Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Wir haben die Stadt und die Einwohner ein wenig kennengelernt. Wir sind schon viel gereist, aber ein solches Hotel haben wir noch nicht oft angetroffen. Es stimmte einfach alles. Freundlichkeit, Sauberkeit, Service und Komfort. Wir würden dieses Hotel auf jedenfall weiterempfehlen.
