Swissotel The Bosphorus Istanbul is found among the hustle and bustle of central Istanbul, on the banks of the Bosphorus and nestled within 65 acres of historical gardens.

Rooms at Swissotel The Bosphorus Istanbul

The wide range of accommodation at Swissotel The Bosphorus ranges from chic, cosy bedrooms for two, all the way to expansive apartments with state-of-the-art design and décor. Wake up to views of the Golden Horn, the verdant gardens or the neighbouring continent of Asia across the water - all maximised by the floor to ceiling windows. Contemporary Alpine design dominates the decor with Ottoman-style carpets and sleek marble bathrooms.

For true luxurious living, opt for one of the suites which have private terraces, Jacuzzis, and stylish living and dining areas. The two-storey Lofts are the epitome of contemporary design, with innovative architecture creating light, open living spaces and tranquil bedroom sanctuaries above.
