“Friendly, helpful staff make this a wonderful hotel to stay at”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Service was great all around, especially Kenan in the restaurant/lobby bar. Location close to shopping and waterfront activities, and excursions/tours can easily be arranged with the staff (we visited Ephesus from here and it was a wonderful trip).

Rooms are luxurious and well-appointed. Loved the "pillow menu" which allowed you to choose from a number of different options for your sleeping comfort.

Room Tip: Superior rooms (2 bedroom suites) are huge, great for a family of 4.

We stayed at the Key Hotel for two nights last week and had a wonderful experience. The hotel has low lighting that immediately helps cool you down. Izmir's sun and heat can be exhausting. The furnishings are very clean and modern throughout the hotel. From our room we had a beautiful view of the sea and the sunset. We were able to control the blinds electronically to ensure both privacy and darkness in the morning. All the staff was professional and courteous. We had a few issues with our IPhone music and the techs were there to repair it within minutes. The reception was very cordial and helpful. Akim, the restaurant maître d'hôtel, was extraordinary. Our dining experiences were perfect. I highly recommend this hotel for all who visit Izmir.

Fantastic location, incredibly comfortable room - I went for a sea front view, well worth it. Great linen, great shower - the best I've had in Turkey. Nice touch with the free minibar too. Easy walking distance of good food and both stations.

PROS
- General cleanness, everything just perfect!
- Amenities in the toilet, a lovely wood box with everything a guest may need
- Complementary, everything in minibar is free! Also free newspaper every morning.
- Towels in the bathroom, I like big towels and in Key hotel it have a very reasonable size.
- Shower water temperature, I hate when the temperature is not constant, and here I just have to set to the desirable temperature and it´s done.
- Air conditioner in the bedroom, very efficient and easy to use.
- View from thru window of the bedroom is one of the most of this hotel. There´s rooms to the back street or to sea, I always booked to sea it´s great to wake up and looking to outside and see nothing as sea, it´s seems we are on a cruise. Worth the value paid.
- Bedroom soundproofing, just perfect! from outside or from the next room, I never heard nothing.
- Restaurants serve good food selection not only turkish and wine as well. The bars are very pleasant place to have a drink, read or chat, they are very calm and silent.
- Decoration and room size, even the smallers rooms are wide and the design and decoration since the main hotel door until the bedrooms are superb!
- Location, very close to shops/bazar, restaurants and attractions. Everything just a few minutes walking, and of course the the seaside sidewalk.

CONS
- Absolutely nothing

DO I WILL RETURN?
- I already stayed 2 times, and I´ll return for sure

TAXI COST TO/FROM AIRPORT:
- About 20€

Our overall experience was perfect. We loved the location which is very central. We loved the rooms so spacious and in tip top condition. But most of all the attitude of all the staff was outstanding. As an ex hotelier I felt great admiration to the management who could put together such a team. Congratulations to all the team!!

I also really liked the fact the minibar consumption is complimentary. So convenient not to have someone come to check if you have consumed 2 or 3 sodas just when you are trying to pack and leave or having to wait at check out. The cost of a few soft drinks is really not worth the hassle for the hotel as well. Well done.

The architectural design and decoration is very tasteful and thoroughly well planned. The only negative is lack of lighting in common areas such as foyers and elevators coupled with completely black floor, black ceiling and mostly dark tinted glass everywhere else really makes it difficult to see where you are going.

I would recommend anyone visiting Izmır to choose Key hotel. I certainly will next time I go.

Room Tip: Street siderooms are also quite nice but pick a seaview and you wont regret it.

We found Key on a website as we travelled down the coast . We booked in for a night and ended up staying for two as this was a beautiful hotel . Very impressive features make it a 5 star experience . Both breakfast and dinner in the restaurant were fantastic overlooking the pier and watching Izmir go by . Included mini bar and parking a nice touch
