This is a great hotel in a great location. You can cross a walkway and enter into the Izmir market district or walk along the water and find wonderful cafe and bars where everyone sits and enjoys the views. The staff is very helpful, the rooms are surprisingly hi-tech and the wi fi was excellent. Izmir is a great place to stay if you wan to visit Ephesus and other local attractions. You can tour by day and have great evening in town.

This hotel has to be one of the best hotels we've ever stayed at anywhere in the world, and we have stayed in a lot. It's location, by the spectacular harbour, is walking distance to the huge array of excellent waterside restaurants and cafes. The fantastic Izmir bazaar is only a five minute walk (and this bazaar is larger and far less touristy than istanbul's Grand Bazaar).
The hotel rooms are amazing: one of the most comfortable beds, spectacular bathroom stocked with Molton Brown products; a minibar stocked with free soft drinks, chocolates and water (and replenished daily); And hi tech gadgets to control every function in the room. The breakfast spread is truly amazing and delicious, with excellent waiters on hand. The hotel itself is beautifully designed and luxuriously furnished. And having only 30 odd rooms, has an intimate feel. Of course, the best aspect of the hotel are its staff. Every person we met - from reception, concierge, maids, waiters and barmen were incredibly friendly, obliging and so welcoming. The hotel is a great treasure in a wonderful city. Can't wait to return soon.

This is one of the few times when I have been tempted not to write a review...this place is so good that I really don't want to share it. So where to begin...

From the excellent greeting by the staff as we approaches, the delightful receptionist who welcomed us ( whilst our bags were whisked away to our room) to the excellent facilities, the brilliant breakfast and the amazing restaurant...It really is excellent.

The Key Hotel is located on the waterfront ands the rooms are elegantly furnished with smart facilities and well appointed rooms. The breakfasts are excellent with great cold food and very good hot dishes( try to the pepperoni and fried eggs - it tasted amazing) and the service was impeccable. The hotel costs about 140 GBP per night and is excellent value.

We stayed for dinner and this was fine dining too. We had baked prawns, followed by lamb chops with white wine whilst my guest had the salad and pasta. The food was exquisite, well presented and very tasteful.

So come for the location, come for the excellent service, come for the food and the atmosphere but basically come for a wonderful and relaxing time

One of the best.

Dear Valued Guest,

Your review is just amazing, thank you so much. Reviews such as yours are a constant source of motivation to us all and make us all smile even more! So much thought, care and preparation goes into our guests stay, it is wonderful to be appreciated and the way you have humorously described your experience as "an hesitation to share" is exactly what we aspire to achieve every day.

Despite the title of your review, please just tell everyone and let them all come...

We can’t wait to welcome you back to KEY HOTEL soon.

Warm regards.

The service was excellent . The room is superb. A lot of electronics. Excellent spread for breakfast, a place of must stay in izmir . Great location.
The only problem is parking and approach road, they need to give better direction since entry is at a crossing. The direction given by GPS does not get you to the correct entry if u driving yourself . The bell desk was very friendly and helpful how ever we had to take three rounds before we found the entrance ,

Room Tip: Try to take a room facing. The sea side,

Dear Valued Guest,

We believe that if guests take time to write reviews on Tripadvisor we should take time to say thank you...so thank you very much.

We are more than happy to read that everything came up to your expectations. "Oasis" is a great word summarising your post-stay feelings.

Thank you for bringing traffic and entrance issue into attention as this is one of the external conditions that we're trying to deal with seriously. Being located at the heart of the city and surrounded by one way mandatory routes, it might be not so easy for newcomers to find the shortcuts. That's why we provide 7/24 concierge and valet parking service. One important tip for self driving newcomers: Please just give us a call to get appropriate directions or even pick up service on a convenient nearby spot.

We are already looking forward to welcoming you back soon!

Warmest regards.

Would agree that this place is top notch. Restaurant and service on-site were 5*. The food was tasty and not overly expensive - paid around 120Euro for Wine, cocktails, 2 apps, and 2 mains with salad. Rooms were clean, uniquely decorated. Ceilings have mirrors, room has black out shutters. Free valet parking. This place is on par with the Setai or Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, maybe even better, and at 1/3 the price. Will stay when next in Izmir.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of KEY on Tripadvisor. I am most grateful for your feedback, which is such a valuable source of information for us, regardless of whether it is good or bad, and helps us monitor the service we provide.

Your kind comparison to top notch hotels in Miami is quite exciting as we are doing our best to set new standards of hospitality in the city.

I was thrilled to know that you particularly enjoyed the quality of food and service at KEY Restaurant which is becoming a point of attraction itself in the city life.

Thank you once again for sharing your feedback with us, and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to KEY in the not too distant future.

Kind regards,

Ozgun CAN

We have stayed in several of the 'big' hotels in Izmir but they do not compare to this hotel. Spacious, modern rooms with all the gadgets, friendly & helpful staff. Breakfast was great, buffet plus a choice of hot food, teas & coffees, freshly squeezed juices. We would definitely stay here again.

This was definitely one of the best hotels we've ever stayed at. It is absolutely different - with regards to the design of the rooms and the technological equippement of the room. The location is almost perfect, probably the best located hotel in Izmir, directly at the promanade and in walking distance of alsancak. The restaurant has a great flair, the breakfast is fantastic! The staff is friendly. It's too bad the price is so high lately. But everyone should try this hotel at least once.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for taking time to post your review of Key Hotel.

As you mentioned, uniqe location, hi-tech rooms and a very motivated team are some of the features that make Key Hotel special.

We hope and believe that Key Hotel would be the home away from home for new guests, rather than a one shot trial. However every and each story starts with a sole word, isn't it?

Looking forward to welcoming you back in not too distant future.

Kindest regards.
