Great location, very friendly and helpful staff, nice spacious room with a king bed and a sitting area. An excellent choice for the business or leisure travellers. The lobby is large enough even for meetings.

I stayed in this Hotel for 3 days during a business trip to Izmir. The Hotel was great. Everything was perfect (service, room, food). This Hotel has a nice bar on the 8th floor with live music at some days and a nice few on the bay of Izmir. Downtown Izmir, Bazars, Bars and Restaurants are in walking distance.

My first stay here in July was exceptional, but this past stay in October was less than stellar. During my recent stay (5 nights), I encountered 3 mistakes. One the second night, the hotel delivered the wrong luggage (belong to someone else) to my room. The hotel did not discovered it until I phoned them. After that, the staff did... More

Great amenities and spacious areas. The room was lovely and the location quite good. The only complaint was that the hotel was so large that you could get lost trying to find the lobby! I would definitely stall here again.

If you happen to be in Izmir you could not make a better choice. But this is no quaint Turkish hotel. It is part of the international chain so maintains the massive dimensions and high standards associated with Swissotels world-wide. Apart from extreme comfort and convenient location I loved the artwork generously adorning the walls everywhere. The ultimate is the... More

Near the sea and closed from good restaurants and bars, the rooms are quiet confortable and large. The service is nice and the breakfast is cool. The lounge at the top floor is quiet good! So very good place to stay in Izmir!

This hotel is modern,and well-located. It seems to target mostly a business clientele, but we were there on vacation and it was perfect. We were lucky to be upgraded to a suite, which was very nice and had all the amenities of the best hotels. The staff was very helpful.

Simply, but elegantly decorated. Me and my girlfriend just visited to have couple of drinks at the Sky Bar on the ninth floor. I found the place cozy and nice, but the appetisers were really below expectations. There are about ten choices and unfortunately none of them can go with the cocktails on the menu. Service was pretty slow, even... More

The Efes is still a nice hotel but it is showing its age. Carpeting in the hallways and rooms are warn and stained. Decor has not changed since it was re-opened. Furniture in lobby needs to changed as well. The fitness room is still very well maintained and up to date. The entrance has been taken away by the city... More

Great service from the parking valet, through reception to the staff in the breakfast restaurant. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for these guys and they even helped us out by speaking directly with our car hire firm (who didn't speak any English themselves). The rooms are spacious with exceptionally comfortable beds, nicely appointed furnishings and well thought out... More
