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.
