    All services are wonderful. Front desk, concierge, valet parking, staff of all restaurants, staff of the pool, spa, room service, cleaning services, everything was superb. Facilities are wonderful too, specially the pool are and Cafe Swiss. Rooms are spacious and the air conditioning works very well in a extremely hot city during the summer. There are also very good facilities for small children, mini pool, kids club and food are suitable for all tastes and ages.

    No. Everything was good.

    I loved this hotel and hope to return.I Was in Izmir last Novermber for 5 days at the Karaca hotel around the corner from the Swiss, and there was no comparison.At the Swiss:Courteous, warm,gracious, attentive youthful staff. English well spoken. Knowledgable concierge. Lovely spacious public rooms with all the bells and whistles. Beautiful surroundings; quietly elegant; immaculate bedrooms with great views and attention to detail. Excellent for conferences, weddings, and parties. Wonderful Spa, wellness center and pool. Great location. Very positive enery. Excellent tike restaurant next door.

    The hotel charges high prices for breakfast and other meals and simple drinks like soda and tea.I Had to send my husband around the corner to Starbucks for our morning coffee and croissant.

    I enjoy the smart rooms, the business like staff, and the location.

    I was disappointed in the service at the front lobby bar and the casual lack of knowledge in making a common cocktail

    Superb

    Stayed here many times and "£ per luxury offered" is probably the best value experienced. The rooms are superbly designed and the beds very comfortable. Attention to detail in every aspect of room provisions for business or pleasure. All room electicals modern and working. Buffet Breakfast plentiful and good choices. Immaculate public areas. Free valet parking. Everything you would expect from a 'proper' 5 star hotel.

    Staff at breakfast slow and couldn't understand basic English words like "tea" or "coffee", or their Turkish equivalent. Annoying, but gave us something to laugh about!! Would have expected fresh orange juice at breakfast, not the sunny-delight-style provided. Tried to stay an extra night but reception insisted they were full, yet Booked.net showed plenty of availability.

    The staff were exceptionally polite and helpful at all times, which is a pleasant change from many hotels I have stayed in in recent years! Facilities are excellent, everything was spotlessly clean, and the location is also great.

    Superb

    It is a beautifully designed hotel and our room was luxurious and very comfortable...loved the pillow menu and the free use of the haman

    Yes, it is very confusing to navigate and the signage is poor so it is difficult to find the spa. Also, the check out process was very poor and incorrect information was given to us about the other party traveling with us - primarily I believe because the reception staff did not understand English beyond a few basic phrases and words.

    Fabulous

    As a repeat customer of the hotel, this time, I was very disappointed with my room. It was very small, with street view, and it was reserved (and paid of course), as an executive room. The Greek TV channel it isn’t any more in the TV program list (they have many Greeks customers), the staff of the reception reacted ironically with me and my wife, when I told them my problem, especially at my departure.The situation was inacceptable at that category of hotel! I’m afraid, that was the last time that i went in this hotel. Too bad…They lost a fanatic customer of them.
