Set on the European banks of the Bosphorus, Swissotel The Bosphorus Istanbul is one of the most luxurious hotels in this alluring city. The 5-star property was named one of the top Luxury Hotels in Europe in the 2013 World Luxury Hotel Awards and is surrounded by expansive gardens belonging to Dolmabahçe Palace, the last residence of the Ottoman sultans.

The city's top sights, such as the Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar and Blue Mosque, are within 20-minutes' drive. Closer by are the designer shops and upscale restaurants of the Nisantasi district.

Rooms and suites have Bosphorus, park or city views, Nespresso coffee machines and free Wi-Fi thoughout.

A traditional hammam, mud baths and a salt pool stand out among the array of sumptuous spa treatments and fitness facilities. Jogging maps are available and there are pool biking classes held in the indoor swimming pool.

Please note: the hotel is undergoing a gradual renovation, which will encompass the East Wing rooms, outdoor pool and restaurants. During this time, guests will stay in the newly renovated West Wing rooms and breakfast will be served in the Lobby Lounge. The entire project will be completed in early 2016.
