Hotel/ Area suggestion in Izmir


I am planning to visit Izmir for 5 days in October.

What would be a good area to stay in, if I am interested in visiting historical sites, museums etc?

Thank you in advance for your suggestions!

It is difficult to make recommendations without knowing your preferences - and budget.

However, the area in front of Basmane Railway Station, especially between Gazi Bulvarı and Fevzipaṣa Bulvarı is a good area to look and not pay too much for accommodation.

The location is good, too, and you would be within fairly easy walking distance of the city's main attractions such as the Archaeological Museum, Ethnographic Museum, Konak Square with İzmir's famous clock tower.and the Agora dating back to the early 2nd Century BC. The present remains were of a reconstruction financed during the reign of the Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius.

For almost limitless shopping opportunities there is the huge open-air bazaar, often referred to as Kemeraltı.

As you are in the area for five days, you may even consider a day trip to Selçuk and explore Ephesus, the single most visited tourist attraction in the whole of Turkey, and other nearby sites including the scant remains of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Please let me know if I can help with any more detailed information.

Thank you so much, dande49!

I'm thinking of booking Marlight Boutique Hotel in Fevzi Pasa Blv. It's the area you mentioned, right?
