Yes there are direct buses with several bus companies almost hourly day and night.It takes 9 hours,cost is c.60TL.

Buses here are very comfortable with reclining seats,A/C,non smoking,many have seat back TV,wifi etc.and during the journey the attendants come around with free hot and cold beverages and snacks.

Bus companies include Kamil Koç Turizm,Pamukkale Turizm,Ulusoy Turizm,Metro Turizm plus several others.

While you're in Izmir you could book your ticket at one of the many bus offices near Basmane rail station. If you book with them, they will provide a free transfer to the coach terminal (Otogar) which in Izmir is quite far outside the city (and called Yeni Garaj = New Garage !)
