The hotel was great. I loved all of the high tech touches, plus the friendly staff and the free chocolate truffles in the concierge office. the one weird high tech thing is that you can open a curtain to see into the bathroom. Not sure why you'd want to do that, but it was easily avoided.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you so much for choosing to stay at KEY in İzmir and we appreciate you taking the time to share your wonderful comments.

Bathroom curtains are part of a contemporary approach in design and many guests express that -especially in rooms with magnificent views- they double the rainshower pleasure. Needless to say, may be avoided easily if needed.

It would be wonderful to have you back to give us the opportunity to accomodate you again at KEY.

Warm regards.

I've been traveling all around world for business and staying in all very nice and luxury hotels; KEY hotel in Izmir is one of the best so far. It is a very new hotel in a historical building at the heart of Izmir just by the sea. Great location for business and holiday when you stay in a main hotel and go around from the center; best maybe for weekends. It is a boutique hotel with only around 30 rooms; each room with a different concept as they say. For example I stayed in a room not with a sea view but with a huge and extraordinarily comfortable round bed. Sleep quality, cleanness , decoration, lightning, all were perfect. The breakfast was also very nice and rich in variety . I cannot finish my review without complementing to the staff. They are so nice, kind and welcoming, friendly but professional that you really fall in love with the hotel. After the check-in, I was asked if I needed anything, if I was conformable or not by any staff I crossed and the extraordinary thing was that they all know my name. I was asked my room number on the first day while having breakfast, then they never bothered for it again. So I really enjoyed my stay and would be my first choice for Izmir. Strongly recommended.

We booked this hotel based on other reviews on Trip Advisor.
We live in San Francisco and travel frequently, enjoying top-notch hotels around the world.
So, imagine our surprise when Key Hotel turns out to be one of, if not, THE best hotel we've ever stayed in. The finishes on this hotel are like nothing we've ever seen, the staff incredible, the breakfast unbelievable, the minibar FREE, the location perfect! Hands down recommendation - will make your trip to Izmir one you'll never forget.

Fabulous hotel. Service is extraordinary in friendliness and readiness. Rooms are modern, spacious, very well decorated and with great technology. And a great view. Breakfast is fantastic. Bar is small but elegant and cozy, good to meet with friends or business associates. Tiny gym maybe the only minus, but it is OK for a boutique hotel. Overall highest marks in design and service; a fully pleasurable experience in a wonderful area of the world. It would be great to have a few more Keys in Europe!

Room Tip: Did not see other rooms, but 309 is perfect.

This relatively new, small, waterfront hotel is amazingly modern and luxurious at a price that is reasonable! We were greeted with homemade chocolate; our very large room had a waterfront view (and an iPhone charger, etc); staff were friendly; breakfast was very good. This is the kind of hotel I would choose for a weekend away if Izmir was closer to our home in Seattle.

My husband and I and two daughters and their husbands spent three nights at the hotel in August 2013. The sea view rooms are over the top. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant and courteous. We ate breakfast each morning at the hotel. Each cup of coffee was served in a clean cup. The breakfast were delicious. The rain showers were unbelievable. Great after a full day of touring. This hotel is convenient to dining along the Aegean Sea. We walked to dinner and the bazar. Definitely worth a stay!

Room Tip: Definitely get the sea view rooms!
