“Phenomenal hotel experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

My husband and I travel quite a bit and have been fortunate enough to stay in some wonderful hotels, but the Key Hotel in Izmir is certainly at the top of our list. From the moment we walked through the door, we were treated like family. Every member of the staff was remarkably friendly and went out of his or her way to make our visit an outstanding one, especially Esra, the hotel's lovely manager. The ambiance in every area, the advanced features in the room, and the food at every meal made the stay a memorable one. We were there for a week and, by the end of the trip, it felt like home. We will most certainly be back.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the water... given the choice, go with a water view. Waking up looking out over...

Dear All,

As you can read on our profile, we do know Turkey as well more than 20 years and we used to go to Turkey 4 or 5 times per year in different areas. We just staid in Key Hotel in Izmir from 5th until 10th may 2012 for holidays. We can recommand it and you can be confident in it. Key Hotel is well located in Izmir, not far from Izmir airport (half an hour), close to Izmir marina (many restaurants) and the city center (many shops). Key Hotel opened in last october. There are 31 large and such modern rooms. All was perfect : cleanliness, wellcome, services, wonderful breakfast, restaurant and of course such exceptional turkish hospitality. A great thank to Ms. ESRA General Manager Assistant, Mr. ÖZGÜN, Ms. PINAR and Ms. NURSAC in Front Desk. This hotel is suitable for business and holidays. You can rent a car with or without a driver from the frontdesk. It's not expensive at all.
A really nice and unforgettable hotel in a lovely area in Turkey.
We wish you a nice trip in hospitality country.
Best Regards
Jean - Pierre and Fabienne from France

I stayed at Key after reading the review on tripadvisor. The reviews were spot on and I truly enjoyed the state of the art rooms and the courteous behaviour of the hotel staff.

This is I believe a new hotel with great upkeep. The bathrooms have a rain shower and the minibar is free. Above all it is extremely well maintained and the hotel staff is ever so helpful.

Next time I go to Izmir, i'm sticking to the Key Hotel.

This hotel is one I will gladly rave about and recommend to all my friends. It is the perfect combination of sleek and luxurious. From the modern, elegant restaurant and bar to the the superior, comfortable rooms to the extremely hospitable staff that takes care of every detail, this hotel is one of the best I've ever stayed in. The view of the Aegean is magnificent. The bedding is so comfortable the I have been looking for the same brand for my home. The rain shower was really phenomenal. And the hi-tech entertainment and information system was unbelievable. I was truly impressed and look forward to going back.

In terms of a centrally , located, modern, sheik hotel, with the best personalized service I have ever had; No one tops the Key in Izir. Esra and everyone made us feel like family.

We spent two amazing nights at this high-tech wonder this month. It is perfectly located with a breathtaking view of the bay. The rooms are superb, especially the suite that we stayed in. From the glass elevators, to the lighting in the rooms, you feel that you are in an environment that is out of this world.. The staff was uniformly superb, especially the assistant manager, Esra Karsiyaka. This is easily the best hotel in Izmir and staying here is an experience that should not be missed

This gem is probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The warm, sleek modern design is so soothing and comforting, yet sleek and hip. The hotel staff, headed by Esra Karsiyaka, are the best of the best when it comes to attention and service. Esra and her team manged to make us feel like family and like royalty at the same time. Do not miss an opportunity to stay at this hotel - it sets the standard for THE BEST! It needs more than 5 start!
