Swissôtel 3-br Residences
"Sophisticated and Smart with Stunning Bosphorus Views." - Reviewed by Lisa
The 3-bedroom units at Swissôtel Residences are housed in a mid-rise tower just 100 steps away from the main hotel lobby. The residences have their own gated security entrance complete with a full security check for every car. The residence tower has its own check-in desk with concierge and 24-hr help desk.
Units are very smart in tone on tone of cinnamon-hued woods strikingly paired with smart, striped grey marble flooring. The decor is modern, sophisticated and showcased to perfection by the many windows. Light fills the apartments and, if you choose the river-view units, you’ll never be disappointed by the fascinating views out to the busy Bosphorus with its hectic shipping lanes and the heady landscape of mosques intermingled with skyscrapers and old palaces.

An excellent breakfast buffet – including both hot and cold items – is served every day on the lobby level. TripWix guests also have complimentary access to all hotel facilities including room service and the use of all spa and workout facilities.
The light, airy lobby – all decked out in Turkish art deco décor – offers a variety of seating and coffee shop areas in with spectacular views over the Bosphorus. It’s a place where you’ll find the movers and shakers of this upscale European-side neighborhood.

But an elevator trip to the soothing spa or the rooftop with its stunning infinity pool and fabulous sunset bar takes guests to another level of relaxation and enjoyment.
As for the famous Istanbul shopping experience – don’t think you have to go outside to find satisfying retail therapy! Just stroll through the lobby to the upper mezzanine floor where you’ll find a florist shop, a photography and video studio, a sundry store and bookshop, an interior design studio, a hair-styling lounge and the inevitable rug dealer. Of course, there’s no end of high-end jewelry options from Venue to Van Cleef; Boucheron to Vhernier.
