Arrived in Izmir from Istanbul for a 3 day stay- business took up half of this time, giving me a day and a half to see Effesus from Izmir as a base. I chose teh comfort Residence pretty much based on reviews from this website. It was a little difficult for the taxi driver to find, but we got there in the end.
The Hotel is located around 800m from the railway station. It has a view on oneside of the city rolling away into the dusty distance, the otherside a view of the hill covered in rather splendid looking squatter houses (apparently Kurds who came and settled in the 1960's).
Check-in is on the 3rd floor- very courteous and helpful staff. As in the case of many of the reviewers, a free upgrade to a suite was offered. It was a spacious room- a studio apartment really I would guess. Very good bathroom, a kitchenette- BIG plasma screen TV. All furnishings near new. Breakfast was included- served to the room. The food wasnt quite up the standard experienced in most other hotels I stayed at in Turkey- but it was fine.
Intenet (WIFI) is available in room and if you dont have a notebook/hand held/I-phone etc with you- the front office let you use their computer for free to check email etc. Front office staff also very helpful with tips, maps etc.
Importantly bed was very good- had 3 nights excellent sleep. Although the Hotel is outside of the downtown/beach area taxis are very cheap and 5 minutes down to the Konak.
Would recommend a stay here for sure
