Reviews Swissotel The Bosphorus

Stunning views but very expensive
Reviewed July 2010 by koshkha
The Swissotel in Istanbul is a beautiful hotel but a very expensive one too. I was booked in there by local agents who worked for the company I used to be employed by and I was shocked that they booked me one of the more expensive river-view rooms. I’ll admit I was impressed by the opulence but since I spent only a few hours each night in the room, almost none of them in daylight, the fabulous view of the Bosphorous was really rather wasted ...
