This hotel has the character of "GREAT" hotel in the world. The ambience is charming and with luxury mood, the interior designe of the hotel is amazing (minimalist concept) the rooms are all very comfortable and elegant . I was in a fantastic suite with incredible view on the sea habour.
The staff is very kind and professional... never let you feel alone!. The restaurant is amazing and the food is great! Service too. Ambience great! I really suggest this hotel that let you feel part of the best world! Amazing!And all this luxury for incredible price!!!

Room Tip: The suite with the view very good price!

We arrived at 2 am and our driver collected us in a vintage Rolls Royce (nice welcoming touch). This service is complementary for those who have booked a suite. Upon arrival, check in was rapid and we were wisked to the top floor. There is a large balcony and lovely vistas.

The bathroom is well stocked although the husband had problems figuring out how to work the shower (there are four dials and perhaps a little card with directions would be nice). The mini-bar and Expresso pods are continuously restocked. The suite is tastefully and reasonable decorated with ample room and with up to date technology. It would be nice if there were more English channels available (only BBC and CNN).

The hotel was used as a base for multiple daily excursions to Epheses and Pamaukkale so the location was not a key factor for us for site seeing in Izmir although it sits on the harbor and there are some terrific seafood/fish restaurants nearby. The food was superb and room service prompt. There was gym adjacent to our suite but it did not appear to be used during our stay. The hotel bar is sometimes not staffed and you may have to track down someone. Overall recommended.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for the time you dedicated in sharing your experience at KEY. We are glad to know that you spent a pleasant stay with us.

There are points to shed light on as I think not noticed during your stay.

Showers at KEY (including the rain effect) are designed for full comfort and pleasure and may be a little more complicated than ordinary ones. Being aware of that, we placed instructions both on the bathroom wall and in the info folder in the room.

Regarding the TV channels, I'd like to express that we have 19 channels in English (some of them are opitonal multi-language channels).

As we have a cosy lobby bar adjacent to our unique restaurant, members of our Food & Beverage service team sometimes contribute to both areas at the same time. I already shared your experience with our F&B Manager. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Looking forward to welcoming you back to our glamour city.

Warm regards.

This is a nice hotel and you won't be disappointed. It's a great location in good walking distance to a number of restaurants. The rooms have a lot of hi tech features and they have a great breakfast. The hotel bar is a really nice place to relax after a day of touring.

Room Tip: Recommend a water view room.

This hotel is perfect in every aspect.From the location,decor,cleanliness,their amazing breakfast and pricing.It is small in respect to the chain hotels with huge rooms and a staff always on alert to serve Us and do all they can to assist Us on Our stay here.
With a lovely room on the 3rd floor,no.307,overlooking the bay of Izmir(this is our last day here while I'm reviewing the Key),leaving it to do our sightseeing takes all Our efforts.
Regarding the hotel restaurant,it is one of the best We have eaten at while on Our visit down the coast.A highly recommended choice!
Thank you Burcu and the rest of the staff for a wonderful stay.

We planned to stay over in Izmir one night after picking up our son from Space Camp. However we had booked a Superior Double Room - assuming that the hotel could arrange an extra bed once we arrived.

The location is on the harbour next to a busy street - so it was easy to pass it then driving. Going back we saw the sign and drove onto the crub close to the hotel. An hotel attendant came quickly - and I was concerned he was angry we parked next to the entrance. However - he was very polite and after we said we are staying at the hotel - he parked the car a few meter away for us - still in front of hotel.

At the checkin they said that instead of extra bed - they could offer the Executive Suite without extra price. Another unexpected extra that made the day.

The Executive Suite is all that is described and more - it is very fancy. It has several elements reminding about Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa, Dubai - another top class hotel. But I would say Key hotel is even better - becuase of the unexpected extra that made us feel very welcome.

When we left the day after - the same attendant put the car back and we saw by surprise that they had cleaned the car without asking us. This was another gesture that was not expected.

I stayed again 24,Sep until 3rd Oct 2013,The rooms are very large with plenty of space. The hotel is modern in appearance and the staff is very friendly, with many staff remembering me by name after a few days which was nice. it's very relaxing to sit on the comfortable lounges Breakfast Buffet was also great with Omlettes, Waffles, bacon, sausages, etc They also served good coffee included in the price - I took a double shot espresso and later a double shot latte and they were nice. Most importantly, the beds are very comfortable, with a nice, soft top layer.

In Izmir be sure to visit KEY hotel for a great chill out experience, food and drinks excellent . The road that the Hotel is on is quite busy with many shops and restaurants to choose from. square was only 500m away and offered some more shops and restaurants.

The Hotel also arranged a comfortable life style, Mini Bar ,WIFI was free &t fast, not slow and it worked in the hotel rooms and on the rooftop and breakfast areas.

Thanks to all staff and management , simply excellent for any business men and traveler .

Room Tip: Front see view 309 excellent
