This hotel served our needs while we were in Izmir for a few days. The hotel is lovely, the location was excellent and so was the service. We appreciated the restaurant recommendations. The wifi was difficult to access and slow so I can't give the hotel an excellent rating.

Modern hotel, well equipped rooms except no decaf coffee in rooms. Breakfast buffet very nice and pleasant eating on deck in morning. Good selection. Comfortable bed. They could be a little more generous with water in the room complimentary than one bottle per person per day.
