When we pulled up in front of the hotel in an industrial/low income shopping area an employee offered to park our car. We declined thinking it could not be that hard to park it. After his instructions we had to get back on the by pass and take the first exit and come down narrow streets and search for the underground parking garage. No such luck except the doorman came out the back of the hotel and showed us where to park. Right in the back in a small area that can accommodate only 4 cars. Ok, 5 with some cross parking. This and the lack of air movement/AC in the common areas such as hallways kept this hotel from earning 5 stars.
What a facility!! Each suite is very tastefully done with a nice bathroom and a bedroom separated from the living/dining area with a sliding glass window and blinds. There were two bathrobes in addition to plush towels, and slippers as well as nice toiletries. Very nice.
The living/dining/kitchen area has a couch, a dining table with two chairs, an easy chair etc. The kitchen has a cook top, microwave oven, and a washing/drying machine. Yes, a clothes washer.
There are cooking and eating utensils and china, cups, glasses etc. Well done!!
Breakfast is included and served by an employee at the time we asked for it in the morning. You are asked to indicate your breakfast choices on a card and hang it on the door knob outside.
I discovered the reason for this arrangement as the hotel does not have a lobby large enough for breakfast service. It turns out the building was originally intended to be suite apartments for sale but was converted to a hotel later. This explains the lack of air movement in the common areas and the single elevator.
The staff have been extremely nice and helpful and made our stay here a most enjoyable experience. But according what we saw during our city visits the "neighborhood" becomes an area full of bars and nightclubs catering to the low and middle class economic strata after dark. Having said that we did not feel uncomfortable at all coming and going. Taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. There is a grocery store (market) almost next door for necessities even alcoholic beverages.
The hotel offers free airport transfers but only for people staying for a month or longer.
Bottom line: we would stay here again if we come back to Izmir as the facility and staff are very good.

Room Tip: We stayed at No. 604 and my fear was elevator noise as it is next the room. Not to worry as I never...

I checked in late on the 26th June as a lone lady on a business trip, arriving at the hotel around 10:30pm, I stayed inititally in room 101, I was pleasantly suprised by how immaculate, clean, modern and just lovely the apartment was and with full supply of tea and coffee facilities, the usual bathroom bits (whirlpool bath and power shower as well!), dressing gowns and slippers, free safe and air con, the works, the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, couldnt do enough for me, I was joined by my auntie a few days later and the staff kindly changed us to a twin apartment which was also just as lovely, I cant recommend this hotel enough if you are visiting Izmir and need somewhere to stay, breakfast was timely and as requested with plenty of choice (but please dont expect a full english as you are in turkey!) I sampled most of the choices and was delighted with them all, we walked to konak pier on a few occasions which took us about 20 mins or so (when we didnt stop to look in the shops!) Ahmet the residence manager and another gentlmen whose name i cant recall but on his business card says M Bora Topaloglu were little gems and will help you in anyway they can, i wouldnt hesitate to stay here again on my return

i have stayed at this hotel about 4 times and would definately recommend it to my friends, it is very modern, and the staff are very helpful, it is spotlessly clean and well maintained, a short walk down the road and you are into the shopping area and the local hustle and bustle, Izmir is a beautiful place to be.

I stayed three nights at this hotel the staff are really friendly and the rooms are luxurious. you have a seperate bedroom and a lounge diner/kitchen area. It is ideal if you want to eat in and prepare your own meals and relax. The location is a little off the beaten track but it is only a 10 minute walk to the scenic park and local shopping area and a taxi ride to the port is only the equivelent of £3.00 . Where there are a number of restaurants overlooking the sea. Back at the hotel they have a breakfast system that allows you to place your order the night before and it is delivered to your room the next morning at your selected time. Food is good and the whole experience excelent. They even have a double adjoining suit if you have family or friends with you. I strongly recommend this accomodation. A taxi ride to the airport is about 36 tlr about £15 pounds at the most. This is a lot easier than the public transport.

Room Tip: All rooms are of a similar quality but some differ in size the bigger the better.

Spent four nights here, very comfortable and rooms are very well equipped. The area is not great but a taxi to the main shopping area is only a few Lira if the local area is a problem.

We only stayed a short time, but it was great. The room is a suite. The hotel is brand new. There is a kitchen with a frig, an electric stove top, dishes and silverware and a pot, kitchen cabinets, and a hidden bin for your shoes if you don't want to keep them on the floor. The bathrooms are to die for. This is a bathroom you would see in a luxury hotel. You have a heated towel rack with heavy cotton bath robes. The bedroom is closed off by not just a door but a huge glass sliding window. There is a living room with a dining area - a glass top dining table with two stylish chairs - all set up for your eating.

The night before, you order your breakfast and it is brought to you from the kitchen. Your first breakfast is free and the remainder of your stay you pay a reasonable price. They also, when they come to clean your room, will wash your dishes. The staff were wonderful and very friendly. The residence manager, I believe his name was Ahmet Altikulac (tall, dark and very handsome) was so helpful, knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. the hotel is very, very clean. The neighborhood is a business district and always filled with people. There are corner stores for anything you may have forgotten on your travel.

My husband and I recommend this hotel highly. When we visit Izmir again, this is where we will stay.

This hotel,,,,, was such an experience.. my friend and I went to Izmir for a weekend..

We were given a suite... it was like home from home...it ws spacious, clean, had everything you could possibly want..

The staff were exceptional... so nice, helpful, advising where and when to go.

I have now stayed at this Hotel twice and would not even think about looking anywhere else in Izmir to stay.. It was convenient for shops, otogar etc.

Was a pleasure to stay there.. Thank you very much
