I arrived at the hotel around 9 pm. Finding the hotel was easy. Building and the sign is visible both from the highway and the state road.
Vale took the car at entrance.
Check in was seamless. I asked for a quiet room, they gave me a few options on different floors, and I chose a corner room on 6th floor.
Room was really spacious with a large work desk area and a seating corner. Bathroom had a nice size walk in shower. Everything was very clean . Hotel itself is a new building I guess.
I ordered in from the room service which was quick , warm and delicious.
Bed was comfortable. Flat screen TV is large enough for the size of the room.
AC was powerful (very important in Izmir in July). I even had to shut it down later .
I used the wifi. Connection is easy, and service is fast.
They serve breakfast on the 7th floor at a large restaurant. A very polite intern girl welcomed me , asked my room number, then what I would like to drink, and then if I would like some omelettes . Brillant! Saves time and energy.
Breakfast had all the varieties I needed. Coffee was fresh, omelette was delicious. Restaurant has an open view to the sea.
As I was entering the restaurant , a British couple were leaving. Apparently they were staying there for some days, because they knew all the restaurant staff by name. They said bye to each of them, kissed , exchanged emails. It was interesting to me bacuse that is a scene you may see at some small seaside hotels or pensions in Turkey, but rarely at a mid size business hotel in the city centre. I thought they must have well taken care of there.
After the breakfast I had some time to spend, so I booked a massage at the Hotel Spa. 50 minutes of traditional Bali Massage felt like heaven .
Check out was fast and with no surprises at all for the bill .
Hotel has the ideal location if you have business at that part of Izmir - Karsiyaka, Mavisehir, Ataturk OSB (Industrial Zone) etc., but if you want fancy Cafes, restaurants or nightlife within walking distance, shopping or sightseeing etc. you should stay in Alsancak district.
Only negative thing may be the noise from the state road if you stay at that side, but from my room I barely heard anything.
Anemon chain is highly recommended for its business concept and customer oriented management standards implied throughout their 20+ branches in Turkey.
