“Good hotel Perfect location”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

On a tour of Turkey we spent one night here. I wish it was longer.
Situated mere steps away from the sea, Surrounded by shopping & restaurants.
This area seems very popular with locals.
The hotel is a modern five star with good service.
This place is good for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the sea

We stayed here for four nights at the end of May, using it as a base to explore the larger area. This hotel is class and service personified. Our room, a free upgrade to a garden view, was modern, spotless, very quiet, and spacious with a decent sized desk and ample closet space. The huge outdoor pool is a pleasant place to while away the afternoon, with poolside drinks and food available. The Underwater Restaurant was excellent as well with extremely attentive servers and a good variety of mezes and fresh fish and some non-seafood items as well. Great choice of desserts, too. Highly recommended.

I spent 5 days in this hotel....it was nice, cozy and comfortable. Everyone was very friendly and sweet. there were few delays in providing some services but it may be due the number of guests visiting the hotel at that time. but in general it is a beautiful and comfortable hotel and its location is excellent, near the sea and the shopping area. i would definitely stay there if i visited Izmir once more :D

My tour group spent two nights in this hotel in April 2014. It is a large hotel with three areas of rooms. Those in the 3rd area had a little more walking to do but overall the place is great! Check in was fast and friendly. Our rooms were large, comfortable and had all you could want. Beds were so nice and comfy.

Breakfast was great and while we didn't spend much time here it was very enjoyable. It was too cool to use the pool but the grounds were landscaped beautifully with some large sculptures gracing the lawn areas.

Very centrally located with lots of places to eat around the hotel too.

Excellent hotel in the middle of the city with a beautiful pool and grounds. Excellent customer service. Staff members were professional, attentive and efficient. It is a great hotel to stay at if you want to be close to the city center but you also want to have some relaxing, quality time as well. Strongly recommend this hotel.

We really enjoyed our one night at this hotel. Our suite was extremely well appointed and had an excellent bathroom. Our room looked out on the beautiful grounds and pool. The entire hotel was well designed and the staff was helpful. The club lounge serves an excellent array of foods for breakfast and has a wonderful wine happy hour. The great location means you can easily walk to the park, along the waterfront or to the bazaar.

This hotel is newly renovated, very masculine, not at all like new luxury hotel. It's probably the best hotel in Izmir. The hotel is very large. Pool area very nice and there is a big info or pool at the spa. Nice room with large bathroom. Very good breakfast! Nice club lounge with a very large selection of food and drink in yer evening. Staff very very friendly! A taxi from the airport was 50 lira.
