“Amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We stayed 2 nights at this sea facing hotel, We had sea view room on 5 th floor. Room were decent and clean. Shower was good but we got warm water and not hot but it was ok. Breakfast was on terrace looking the sea and harbor was decent. They had free Wi-Fi in room that was good. Location is excellent. All cafes were a short walking distance. If planning to visit Ephesus then this town is best located. we recommend this hotel. If we go again we will stay here.

Room Tip: Choose sea facing rooms.

I stayed at this hotel for a week and i can say i will never return again. Rooms are small and not very clean. Food was not up to scratch i ate out nearly every night which when you have paid for all inclusive is not good. Been to much nicer hotels so look around for the best. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone unless you want a bad holiday.

Room Tip: Avoid the hotel

Dear Shakira1986,
it is very unfortunate that you had such a terrible vacation experience in Turkey, but we have to kindly inform you that the circumstances you are describing belongs to the ILAYDA HOTEL in MARMARIS. Your current review has been written on the HOTEL ILAYDA KUSADASI page at Tripadvisor.
We are in no shape or form associated with the Marmaris hotel as the only similarity between us is by our names. We are a city hotel with no all inclusive offering, contrary to the information you are providing in your review. Unfortunately due to the name similarities we are sometimes experiencing such mix-ups.
We would therefore kindly ask you to please remove your review from our Tripadvisor page as it is misleading for current and future customers.
Thank you very much for your cooperation.

I traveled to Kusadasi with my daughter, my cousin and her husband, and we stayed at Ilayda for 2 nights. We had a sea view room for 2 nights. The room was excellent and spacious. From the window room you can see the pigeon island, harbor and beautiful sunset. The location is close to various shops, restaurant and some of tourism objects. The staffs are very helpfull

Room Tip: The sea view room is spacious

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.
