“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Comfortable modern hotel right on the waterfront. The rooms were small but not tiny, we stayed three nights and could have done with a bit more space to spread out into, although there are plenty of outdoor options on the foreshore to sit and watch the world go by. The ground floor restaurant was very good and one of the better options along the foreshore. Service was good but the unexpected entrance of a staff member and another group of guests into our room was quite a shock! Breakfast had great views from the top floor and was reasonable but not the best we have seen. Kusadasi was a great place to base ourselves to explore Ephesus and the other surrounding sights.

I traveled to Kusadasi with my husband, and we stayed three nights in this wonderful hotel, our room had a spectacular ocean view and it was very close to the beach and port of Kusadasi also restaurants, coffees, and shops. The staff and service was just excellent as well. By the way, the room breakfast hotel is located in the last floor where we had another amazing view over the ocean.

We travelled as a couple to kusadasi in August. I had booked this hotel through booking.com and absolutely didn't regret the same. We were picked up from the kusadasi bus stop by the staff promptly. We didnt ask for a cab pickup from the airport as it's quite expensive. Ali was in touch with us through mails and had assured us of a memorable stay. ..and memorable it was!
We reached the hotel by lunchtime and were told that the room wasn't ready..Ali promised us though that he has blocked the best room for us. While we had a comforting lunch at their in house restaurant, our room was readied. We were given a sea facing double room which was spacious and fabulous!! Just as Ali had promised. From the moment we reached the place to the time we left Ali was our eyes and ears. He looked into every small need of ours. I got little burnt in Istanbul and the moment he got to know that he sent a fresh supply if first aid to our room.
He took care of our tour bookings and even arranged for a cab at Good price when we expressed interest to visit the national part near by. Breakfast spread was very good with a good mix of veg abd and non veg. Ya and most importantly the hotel is located in the heart of City close to the exciting night life in kusadasi.

In short you don't need to look further if you wish to have a memorable stay at kusadasi! Thanks a ton Ali!!

Modern and comfortable hotel right on the waterfront. Our sixth floor room had impressive sea views and was a good choice for our 2 night stay. Hotel restaurant on the seafront was very good and understandably popular amongst an impressive array of restaurant and eating choices along the road. With a longer stay we would have liked to do a day trip out to the Greek islands nearby. Breakfasts on the rooftop terrace were however a bit disappointing with a limited choice during our stay possibly reflecting lower room occupancy at the time as surprisingly there were only a few others guests sighted.
Just on the edge of the main shopping district and a short stroll to the markets it was a good base for our tour excursions to Ephesus and the surrounding sights. Travel agents are available in the main shopping street and we found we were able to negotiate lower cost tour prices than those offered initially by the hotel but the hotel desk then matched those quotes.

I stayed at the Hotel Ilayda for three days in June and was very impressed with the hotel and the service. The hotel is right across from the beach and is close to good restaurants and bars. We had two rooms on the ocean side that were clean, good-sized, and most importantly had great views!

We ate at both the breakfast bar and the restaurant downstairs, and each meal we had was fabulous. We also felt the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a pleasant stay, and will definitely recommend the hotel to anyone traveling to Kusadasi.

On arrival at this hotel we were impressed with the location as it was just across the road from the beach and in the middle of city. The room was large, spotlessly clean and had an amazing sea view. Breakfast is on the roof top and is a traditional Turkish breakfast. The restaurant downstairs was very good, the man in charge made us feel very welcome and looked after us well.
We were very impressed by the staff at the hotel who were courteous, helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.

If you want a central location, this is the hotel to get. However, if you want good service or proper bath products, don't go here.

Pros: The location was very convenient. To be completely honest, my friend and I should probably not have stayed in the city center, as we weren't all that interested in night life. We should have found a hotel in a more private location. But if you want nightlife, this would be a great place to stay. The hotel has been renovated recently, so the furnishings are very nice.

Cons: The service was... odd. The most basic requests were met with excuses. It took a very long time to get our room ready to begin with. My friend and I weren't allowed an additional room key. The wifi access was clunky. (Really? I needed my passport number just to sign in?) We were met with scratchy towels in the bathroom and a line of unlabeled bath products that all looked the same. (Seriously, not one label. I think there were five bottles of shampoo [?] and no soap. We had no idea.)

This hotel felt like it was a two star hotel that got a renovation to four, but kept all the two star staff. Can NOT recommend.
