Had stayed here for 2 nights during a recent trip. I had decided to stay at Izmir and cover Ephesus from Izmir. I also used it as my a starting point for a trip to Denizli and hence Pamukkale. The best part about the hotel is the location, right next to the Basmane Gar. Basmane is a key railway station at Izmir. This was helpful as we could take direct trains to Selcuk and Denizli from this station
The hotel itself is located exactly 2 minutes walk away once you get off the train. We had taken a flight from Istanbul to Izmir and had arranged for a pickup from the hotel. The pickup was efficient and on time, even though our flight landed at 2300. The check in was done quickly and the free wi-fi is a great bonus
We stayed in the Agora room on the 4th floor and it was a nice spacious room with a comfy bed. As a plus, it had a balcony as well. Since this was winter time, the heating was also spot on and we were very comfortable inside the room.
The major clientelle of the hotel seem to be local people travelling to Izmir for work and hence the atmosphere is very professional. The breakfast spread is also nice and the breads very freshly baked in the morning. The breakfast is also on till 1030, which is a boon for late risers. The other advantage of the location is that the Metro station is also close by and even though the hotel is not located within the traditional city center, you can always take the metro to the city center
Will definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to cover Ephesus and not stay at Selcuk
