Modern glamour sitting pretty in historical gardens on the European side of the Bosphorus

The Lowdown

The Ottoman Sultans once gazed out over the Bosphorus from this 497-room hotel’s hilltop location; the modern Swissôtel retains that link to the past with its location on 65-acres of historic gardens that were previously attached to the Dolmabahçe Palace. Contemporary, comfortable interiors come in muted shades and subtle patterns. There’s nothing, in fact, to detract from the views over the water, city or gardens. A 43,055-square-foot spa offers serenity seekers mud baths and a traditional hammam. Eating options include French chef William Mahi’s Gaja Roof, which serves seafood and grilled meats on a terrace hotspot.

In the Area

The popular neighborhood of Ortaköy in the district of Beşiktaş is a central spot on the European side of the Bosphorus where travelers and locals congregate in the galleries, restaurants and bars that line its cobbled streets. On Sundays there’s an open-air arts and crafts market that will fulfill most of your souvenir needs. Get your history fix at the waterside Ortaköy Mosque, as well as the Dolmabahçe and Topkapı palaces. The iconic city highlights of Süleymaniye Mosque and Hagia Sophia are also easily accessible.

Great stay!

Great service Palidan was very nice and welcoming to us as well as the majority of the hotel. Exceptional service also by the people who man the executive lounge area for breakfast and lunch especially to the slim lady with the shoulder length brown hair she greeted us the next day a breakfast and already remembered our coffee orders. Well done to the staff there! The rooms are huge and comfy as well.
