Reviewed 9 December 2012

after a whole day of travelling, I was relieved to see a modern bedroom with new fittings. Staff are efficient and responsive. All the Turkish hotels on my tour come with breakfast but the breakfast given here is very basic. The other grouse is that the rooms are pretty small even for Asians.

Clearly "twin room" translates to "tiny room you can barely fit your suitcases" in Turkish. The hotel is pretty new and the public areas are beautiful. But our room was so small we could barely navigate (and we're not particularly large people). When our luggage arrived, hoo boy! It was like a phone booth! Based on other reviews, there are larger rooms available. I would recommend paying extra if you're spending more than a day or two.

That said, the firm beds were very comfortable for this pillowtop fan. The breakfast was good. There's a tiny market next door in case you're frugal like me and don't want to 3x cost for snacks and beverages from the minibar.

We had a nice view of the densely packed city which was cool. and it's only a 8.80 TL cab ride (approx. $5) to the Kordon beachfront if you get a reputable cab driver who drives better than Steve McQueen in Bullitt like we did. (Tip: get your cabs from nice hotels not off the street)

Room Tip: Pay extra or ask if there is a larger twin room.

Hotel is very clean. The actual lobby is small and at street level, the hotel is easy to miss. There are constructions right across the road which can be noisy.

We traveled with friends who could afford a suite and it was actually quite spacious.

The hotel is patronage by a number of travel groups.

We found the food in the restaurant very good.

Staff were helpful and polite.

Positives: Clean rooms, good food, free wifi.

Challenges: small rooms, location is 25 mins walk to port, not many retail shops directly around the hotel.

Room Tip: Suites are actually quite spacious, go for it, if you can afford it.

Arrived almost at midnight I could not have to change the hotel otherwise I would do it. First the location is bad for Izmir. Anyway, horrible service and very bad and even rude communication at the reception. Second, the room is one of the tiniest room I have ever seen. Very clostrophobic and the air conditioning is central so you would die of heat. The room next to mine was partying so it is impossible to sleep if you have noisy neighboor. I asked to the reception to change my room. The answer was rude of course. No need to tell about the rest. Everything was horrible and I would never stay again in this hotel. I will change my travel agency who arranged me this bordel.

My husband and I were in İzmir for my exam on the following day. I had foolishly booked another hotel in Basmane, which was a total nightmare (you can find my review on this awful hotel on this site),and after fleeing from that hotel we were referred to Blanca Hotel based on a friend's advice. Especially after that bad experience, the friendly staff and the service, the swift check-in, the super clean room that we were given, the cleanliness, and all in all the comfort was heavenly. We slept so nicely and the breakfast was fine. We would fully recommend the place:))
