Movenpick Hotel Izmir
Ranked #7 of 96 Hotels in Izmir
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We stayed for two nights in October 2013 and left with no small regrets. In fact, the Mövenpick Izmir was one of the reasons why we completely failed to explore the city. Why leave the hotel when everything is there?

Check-in was easy and the staff were very pleasant.

The room was great (executive king room on 8th floor - partial views of the bay). Molton & Brown bath products were very, very nice, as was the natural fibre scrubber. Didn't love the tub screen (splashing) and thought the venetian blind window from the tub to the room was a bit on the cheesy side. The welcome snack plate in the room was a nice touch, as was the handwritten, personalized welcome card.

The breakfast buffet (included with our room) was tasty and had an extensive array of choices, including some nice traditional Turkish fare (börek) though there was no (apparent) ability to get anything but drip coffee with breakfast. Also, not enough cream!

The executive club lounge (again, included in our room) was great. Non-alcoholic drinks, including traditional Turkish tea, were provided 24/7. Here, you could get any sort of (machine-made) latte/cappuccino etc. I believe they had a happy hour where you could get alcoholic drinks, but we didn't partake. They did have a light dinner buffet and a dessert buffet with plenty of tasty choices. The balcony off the club lounge was a perfect vantage spot for the obligatory sunset pictures.

The fitness centre staff happily gave us a tour of all their facilities, and they are as good, if not better than anything I've seen in a hotel before. Really ridiculously beautiful pool, lots of cardio equipment, a pilates/yoga studio, steam room/sauna, and massage/relaxation rooms.

Do factor in the value of the excellent breakfast and club lounge amenities which are included in the executive rooms.

Overall, we loved it. Would definitely stay again - very good value for the money.

Room Tip: Keep in mind that the seaside rooms are also on a busy street, so if you are a light sleeper, you mi...

No complaints here. Great service and very clean hotel. Internet is fast and location is perfect. Very reasonable prices. Will certainly come back here again. Super close to the water and various tourist attractions. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. Very nice breakfast included and lobby area. Has a nice health club so bring your work out cloths. Plenty of security when you enter the building. Hotel is located in a very safe part of the city as well as quite.

Reasonably good hotel. Exceptionally well located. Right in the center of the city. And best of all, sizable rooms and responsive service. Yet needs a bit of a "new look". Decor smacks of Middle Eastern motifs and details. Parking is yet another issue.

I'm so happy that I reserved this hotel for our 4-night stay in Izmir. We got a good deal of an executive room because it was already off-season. The price was the same as for a 'normal' room. The room had a king size bed with excellent mattress and pillows. The room was spacious with an ocean view and bathroom with a tub (and a rubber duck!). Of course the usual stuff: minibar, satellite TV, free wifi, security box, air conditioning, coffee makers etc.

There is a well equipped gym on the 11th floor with amazing views towards the sunset over the ocean. It was such an experience to exercise while watching the sun set. And go after the gym to sauna (two of them) and pool. And after you are done, you can visit the executive lounge next door for a late night drink, coffee or small cake.

The bell boys are really energetic and eager to serve, whether it is about taking care of your luggage or your car. When you arrive at the hotel front, there is at once the bell boy attending you.

The breakfast is plentiful, a good selection of cold and hot items in an open buffet. You may also make an order of additional dishes if you fancy something else.

The reception is very polite, efficient and friendly, smiling heartily. Also, the rooms are very clean and the turndown service is sweet.

You can get all of the above in most good quality hotels but what was so special in this one is that most of the staff exceeded the expectations and provided better service than necessary. They truly wanted to delight their quests. This happened in the reception, during the breakfast, in the executive lounge, in the gym, in the lobby (chocolate and ice cream tastings). Constantly. Amazing.

Room Tip: Executive room with an ocean view

I stayed at Movenpick in Izmir this summer. We had a small problem with the first room. I phoned reception and we were moved to a suit with a sea view. My complaint was dealt with a professional manner and they really made us like we are in charge. Breakfast was truly 5 star. Staff in the breakfast room made a big difference. They were real professionals. Before you finish coffee they notice that and immediately somebody asks you if you like more. Our 2 year old girl was in centre of attention. Everyday she got a present from the staff. If go back to Izmir I know where I will stay. Great experience and well recommended hotel. Well done Movenpick you are the BEST> ( Best hotel bed I have ever slept)

Room Tip: Ask for suits if you have a kid.

Stayed for work. Great location, close to the water, the bazaar, konak pier, clean rooms, and walking distance to the Havas (airport shuttle). Great service by the front desk staff- willing to help to ensure your stay is a great one. Booked through hotel.com, same prices were available on their website.

Would stay here again!

We stayed two nights in this hotel and we had a very good experience.
The best thing about this hotel is its excellent location, just few minute walk to waterfront and lots of restaurants. 10 min. walk to the main old bazar and İzmir Clock Tower (Turkish: İzmir Saat Kulesi which is a historic clock tower located at the Konak Square in Konak district of İzmir).
It is a real 5 star new and modern hotel with friendly staff. The rooms are fairly big and spotlessly clean. There are everything in the room (except ironing) from slippers, coffee-tea maker, coat- towel, etc.
We were on half-board and dinner were fixed menu and very delicious. We had a partial view of the waterfront. You could hear cars in the street but overall sleep quality was very good, thanks to extra comfortable bedding materials. Wi-Fi was good in rooms and free of charge.
I will definitely come back to this hotel and I wish I had spent more time in Izmir, as it is a very beautiful nice clean city and worth visiting again.

Room Tip: Try upper floor rooms with a direct front view of the waterfront.
