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.
How to Get There
We stayed in the Terrace suite overlooking the bosphorus, unfortunately we only stayed one night in this beautiful hotel! The room was outstanding with all the amenities one would expect in a luxury hotel room, the views from every corner of the room were marvellous. Spacious, clean and up to scratch. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone and will be returning! A big shout out to the staff, so welcoming and ever so helpful at all times.
