Almost. The room was spacious, particularly for Turkey, very clean, and most welcoming. Beds were comfortable and they even let you choose your own pillow! The location was very close to the Kültürpark and only a bit of a walk from the waterfront. Some might find the neighborhood a little less than savory, but it is perfectly safe and, to my mind, just has character.
The Park Hotel's breakfast was definitely the best we had in Turkey. The spread had the most variety of any we came across and they also made eggs to order as well as egg bread. Huge plus there.
Our one reservation about this place was the staff. By and large, we found them helpful, but when we asked for a recommendation of a place to have our clothes washed, they took us to a nearby place and backed up the store's owners when he quoted us an outrageous rate. Also, the front desk the directions the front desk gave us to the otogar were unhelpful. On the plus side, they did call and arrange our hotel in another city when we checked out and housekeeping was both friendly and efficient.
If you can get a price you can live with online, try the Park Hotel while you're in Izmir. Definitely more western, so if you're looking for a B&B experience, this isn't your place, but if you're looking for comfort and luxury, consider this hotel.
