Visited Izmir at the end of a trip to Selcuk. Had been generally told that there wasn't much point in going to Izmir, but I think that was wrong. I find that when I think about this part of my trip (Efes, Selcuk, pamukkale, Izmir) that I tend to think more about Izmir.
The Guzel Izmir is definitely not a fancy hotel. Fairly basic in some ways. Older style hotel. Rooms are sort of clean, beds are very basic, rooms are somewhat small, etc.Much of what you read in other reviews is true. THere was a gap at the base of the door to the room, so you could hear the noise of people going past the room and the walls aren't terribly thick. Truly, it is a not a grand hotel.
That said, its advantages ae that for Izmir, it is fairly reasonable, in a very central location and the people who work there are very friendly. It is very close to the train station and and easy ride to the airport. It isn't far from the market or the ocean and the area around the hotel is safe. THe internet connection was actually very good and better than at some other hotels visited on the trip. Breakfast was simple.
Interesting is that basically, all of the rooms are left open when they are done cleaning them, so when we first saw the room with a shared bed where the bed took up most of the space in the room, we could look at the other rooms and we decided to change to a room with two single beds. No issues with doing this.
If I was in Izmir again, I would try the Hilton if I could get a good price on it, but this wouldb't be a bad choice for someone trying to save some money, looiking for convenience on transportation, eyc. As I mentioned, the staff was very friendly and helpful.,
