Vatan Hotel
Ranked #59 of 98 Izmir B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 May 2011

My friends and I visited Izmir for one night and didn't have a good experience. Vatan looked like the best option compared to other unattractive offerings in the area. Our room was on the front street which made for good people watching but at night you got to hear live music, something like a clarinet, played in the local bars until late in the evening. The bathroom was simple to the point of being crude. The high-speed internet had very limited bandwith and was effectively useless when others were using the wifi. To make an improvement, the hotel needs to invest in the rooms to make them more comfortable and eliminate the feeling that everything was improvised. For travellers visiting Izmir during tourist season, I would recommend making your reservations in advance to stay in a hotel that gets consistently good ratings.

Clean, comfortable rooms, and good value for the price. Reasonable turquish breakfast. The bathroom was very small, and the water flowed out trough the courtain so the floor was always wet when we had a shower. Don't ask the staff about restaurants, because they will send you to the next door rest and they'll charge you lots of money for few food. Did not like this. You can eat very chep in Izmir, and there you pay twice because staff guet comision.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.
When you arrive you're welcomed warmly and are offered drinks for free. The reception gives you a good - but wrong - impression. It's nice and clean which is contrary to the rooms.
From the Turkish we'd understand we were offered the best double room, but still it was very poor and dark. Everything (except the dirty fridge) worked though, but still it wasn't a place you'd use to everything else but sleeping. Talkin about sleeping, we were woken up at 3 AM by the night receptionist suddenly standing in the dark room why we were sleeeping. He was getting out very fast when I woke up and ran towards him. After that I went to talk to him in the reception, but he just had some sorry excuses why he had sneaked into our room in the middle of the night.

So the next morning we wanted to check out after one night though we had paid for two in advance. That was not easy, but at last after a long and tough discussion (also with another guy on the phone) we succeeded and found another place to stay.

All in all the hotel leaves a great impression when you arrive and see the reception, and the staff is very nice. That's just until you are not satisfied anymore. Then the hospitality is suddenly gone. Our recommendation: don't go!

Arrived at the Vatan in Izmir hot and tired after a long journey from Istanbul. We initially were impressed by the hotel foyer and were offered drinks but should have become suspicious when we were asked to pay up-front for our two night stay. Proliferation of staff who could have been better employed carrying out basic repairs and maintenance rather than hanging around in reception. The room was not good - the smoke alarm was hanging off the ceiling, bed head board was hanging off the wall, the bathroom had the cheapest possible fittings although it was quite clean. The breakfast buffet was basic in a long thin room with plastic flowers. We had hoped to eat outside in the garden but this is obviously not used much. Generally, we felt uncomfortable - hustled to eat in the restaurant next door, to give tips. The running of the hotel seemed unprofessional and we wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
