The aptly-named Swiss˘tel Istanbul-The Bosphorus has some of the finest Bosphorus views among Istanbul luxury hotels.
Besides fine indoor and outdoor swimming pools, the Swiss˘tel has its own Bosphorus cruise boat for excursions, nightly dinner cruises, and a Sunday brunch cruise.
Managed by Singapore-based Raffles International despite its Swiss-˘ name, the 600-room Swiss˘tel Istanbul is set on a hill overlooking Dolmabahše Palace and the Bosphorus.
It's a great location for views, but less so for walking anywhere. You'll probably find yourself taking taxis most of the time.
If you are a walker you can stroll 15 minutes up the hill to the Tesvikiye and Nisantas districts for shopping and restaurants.
