Guzel Izmir Oteli
Ranked #49 of 99 Izmir B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 31, 2012

We stayed here on two separate occasions - once while travelling down from Istanbul to the area around Ephesus and once on the way back up. Both times we had the same room which was very good. The air conditioning was good and the staff were very friendly. We didn't spend a great deal of time in Izmir and so gained a limited idea as to where the main shopping/tourist areas were. However, the hotel appeared to be within walking distance of them. Free breakfast was provided, but unfortunately we left the hotel really early each time and so were unable to try it. There is gym equipment, which was very limited, and a darts board, which was very fun! The hotel is a minute away from Basmane train station. If you're getting the train from Bandirma and end up in Alsancak, it's about half an hour walk away from the hotel. Price was great.

Great value for money - very good location, clean with air-conditioning. We had a tour pick-up at 730 am so the fact that breakfast was only from 8am onwards was a bit disappointing - they could have accomodated us better by offering to provide breakfast at 715 at least. Otherwise, staff were very friendly and helpful. Free internet.

The Guzel Izmir Oteli was a good hotel for the price, so I'm not going to say it was horrible.

The staff were extremely helpful, and one of them even spoke fluent English, their breakfast in the mornings was okay, if a little basic, but then if you think about it your not paying that much so then the breakfast is okay.

The rooms were clean, which a little exception of the bathroom my wife had issues showering in there due to the mould that could be seen in the shower, but i'm sure it could be cleaned a little better, and it was annoying how the toilet was just under the shower so it was soaked every time you showered.

They had wifi in the rooms which was a big plus, and the location couldn't of been more perfect, they had a train station near by, and almost the bus booking offices are at the end of their small street which was perfect when it came to catch busses elsewhere.

And most of all they had a great lounge downstairs with sat tv in which we could watch the Euro 2012 games.

Room Tip: Their twin rooms facing the street are large, try getting one of those, or else their other rooms ar...

The hotel's photos you find in internet must have been taken by a professional photographer because when you arrive there and see the place for yourself it is different from what you were thinking. The building is shabby and the rooms are very small and unconfortable. Bathrooms are tiny with no windows. I was traveling with my mum and we got a double ensuite but I would not go there again. The only good point is location, close to the train station but around this hotel and even in the same road there are at least other 20 places. I would definitely go somewhere else next time.

Room Tip: Check few rooms before choosing one.

I am very sorry here about your experience @ Guzel Izmir. We are a budget hotel our strenght is our LOCATION, BREAKFAST and FLUENT ENGLISH speaking STAFF. Some of my rooms are small . Our pictures reflect the truth I took them. I did not hire any photograher infact they are taken by my I phone.

It is great to arrive to a new city and be greeted by someone who not only can communicate in your own language very well, but gives you a map, circles all tourist attractions, orients you to the city, and basically can answer every question you have regarding transport around that city.
Guzel Izmir Oteli excels in this regard. In addition, our room was very clean (albeit tiny), offered a tv and air conditioning, and even offered amenties in the basement that we did not have time to take advantage of, such as a gym and computer. The hotel is also very close to many bus routes and the train station. Though it is lacking in decor or charm, I would definitely recommend this as an above-average budget hotel.

A feature of my stay in Turkey was the helpful staff on hotel desks. This hotel was no exception. While we only stayed one night and were there were perhaps 4/5 different people on the desk during that time, they could not be more helpful. On our first morning in Izmir while checking out, totally unprompted, the member of staff took some time to give us a handy map, and then draw us out a route with a marker, highlighting the key sights and giving us some tips. The most useful of which was that Kadifekale was closed for the day. This bit of info saved us quite a trek.

The room itself was quite small for a twin but comfortable. The shower was old but no leaks or floods and the hot water was plentiful, if a little erratic. No noise from outside or other ajacent rooms could be heard and we had a good nights sleep. We had an early start so didnt stay for breakfast
Hotel is located centrally on a side street and very close to the main thoroughfare in Izmir, a short walk from the all the promenade restaurants overlooking the Aegean.

I read the reviews of this hotel and they couldn't be more wrong!!!
The front desk staff was wonderful and the location is great, that is where the good things about this hotel end.
My room: 104, smelled of the bathroom drain. I think this room my have formerly been a janitors closet. I complained about the smell, but there was a Marble Convention in town and no rooms to be had, anywhere. I was stuck. They offered to put something in the drain, which help very little. The bed was about 50 years old and the stains on the mattress confirm it. The pillows were hard as cement and my room was over and next to a disco. The loud music started at 5pm and continued until at least 2am. Plus there was some sort of work going on during the day and the noise was everywhere. I could even hear the noise from the lobby.

Room Tip: stay away from 104
