“Great location - terrible hotel”
Reviewed 18 July 2010

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!

Reviewed 27 June 2008

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.

  • Liked — Lovely reception area and good location
