We recently spent 10 days in Izmir with family and stayed at the Ege Palas. The location is excellent for spending time exploring the city as well as day trips to other sites in western Turkey. The hotel staff were very helpful in providing information for getting around the city, restaurant recommendations, and taxi service. Because it is located in an active part of the city with lots of night life, it is a smart idea to ask for a room on an upper floor with a sea view. We stayed on the 18th floor and had a million dollar view of the harbor that was breathtaking! We had no problems with the elevators. The room itself was clean but can definitely use some updating. The side of the tub/shower combo is very high which would be difficult for anyone elderly or handicapped to maneuver. The beds were very comfortable, and they offer pillows to suit your comfort level. My only criticism of the hotel is that they do not allow you to bring in outside food or drinks. They provide you with one bottle of complimentary water per day (per person) which is NOT nearly what you need in this very HOT country. It's really a very dumb rule, except it's a way for them to make money from the water in the minibar. We brought in water every day anyway. They really need to reconsider this policy. The included breakfast in the hotel is outstanding, and the wait-staff in the dining room were cheerful and very friendly. All in all, this hotel is a good, affordable choice if you plan to visit this interesting city and country!
