The Hotel is situated in an excellent area of Izmir, only at 3 minutes walking distance and just in between Hilton & Swiss Hotel, two luxury international-style hotels in the vicinity. Karaca Hotel is more Turkish oriented style, which I like very much. Price for a room is very good value for the money, breakfast is always included in the price, and there is a FREE shuttle mini-bus to/from Izmir ADB airport, and excellent service (pre-booking is required), with a very clean and comfortable Bus, a polite driver, something in general not offered in any of the other Hotels I’ve checked in the area. The Breakfast is very well prepared with plenty of choices, cheese, fruit, etc. The people at the Reception Desk are quite serviceable, very polite also, so no problems at all. In the same street, a few meters away, there are several restaurants to have dinner late night, some bars, etc. The shopping area, bazaar, etc. are found near the hotel at 10 minutes walking distance, but later on the area extends up to the seaside. The area close the Hotel is safe, tourists seems to be comfortable, but precautions are always recommended as in any other big city all over the world. Not to forget, free of charge WiFi internet access inside the rooms is also available.
I am from Madrid, Spain but Turkish people know about Spanish National football league much more then me and always is good to discuss on sport matters with them. A good method to become friends in a few minutes.
As a summary, this Karaca Hotel is fully recommended and I will come back at any time without any doubt. J. Esteban.
