“Enormous Bed with a Fantastic View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

The bed was so big and comfortable, it would have been easy to stay there all day. There was a small leather sofa and table which sat in front of large patio style windows, overlooking the bay of Izmir. The local ferries come in and out of the small harbour on a frequent basis, whilst cruise ships dock most mornings and depart early evening after their passengers have been to nearby Ephesus for the day.
I chose to stay in Izmir, rather than a resort such as Kusadasi to get away from the tourists. Izmir reminded me a lot of Brighton to be honest. Lots of cool cafes along the waterfront, everybody seemed so much more laid back than they were in Istanbul or other cities I had been to. It was still easy to arrange trips to Ephesus, Pergamom and Pamukkale but then pleasant in the evening to stroll along the waterfont with the locals, sipping iced coffee in a café and eating in one of the many waterfront restaurants, many of which are 24 hour.
The hotel has a restaurant, however nobody seemed to eat there for the four days I was there. Similarly, the rooftop bar was never open. But there again there was no need to with the local café culture.
Wi fi was free and excellent, breakfast was good and eggs were cooked to order and the staff were helpful, although slightly limited in their English. Not as limited as my Turkish though.

We had a partial sea view. Most of hotel has an angled view to the water. Room was large and comfortable. Only real complaint was that the shower hadn't been cleaned in a long time. Mildew in the tile and just rather gross. And the furniture and such was rather worn. Could use a bit of updating. Many restaurants close by and the included breakfast was very good. Staff was helpful. A friend has a mix up in her reservation and the staff was very accomodating and was able to resolve her issue - which was very much appreciated by our group.

Reading some of the other comments I have to agree this hotel ticked all the boxes for us. Modern clean, in the heart of Izmir waterfront, staff were extremely friendly and obliging nothing was to hard. Highly recommend and if possible ask for a balcony room you won't be disappointed.

It is not the first time I stay at the Kordon. The views onto the bay are great. Centrally located you can walk along the waterfront, or take a ferry to the other side. The restaurant was excellent. The staff, although reserved at times, are friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it.

Basically a business hotel. Located right on the waterfront with great views. Our room was comfortable, large and very clean. In addition to the bed the room had a sitting area with sofa. Price included complimentary breakfast which including eggs and omelets made to order, variety of Turkish breakfast items -- yogurt, dried fruits, olives, cheese, etc.

Staff was friendly and very helpful in assisting us making some local phone calls and helped translate.

The hotel is in the heart of Izmir. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The price is very reasonable. Good restaurants are nearby and the fish is fresh from the sea. The breakfast offered by the hotel is great. Coffee is instant, not brewed. Westerners please note this hotel does not have wash cloths so plan on bringing one of your own. Television is mostly in Turkish with one English speaking news channel and one German speaking channel. Electrical outlets use the European-style plugs and are plentiful in the room. The airport is a 25min cab ride away. Most of the staff speaks English.

Room Tip: See if you can get an end of the hall room. They are slightly larger and more quiet.
