I stayed here over long weekend for a special event and was happy with my choice. If you are looking for a comfy stay in Izmir, Wyndham Izmir Ozdilek provides you what you need.
I had a room with sea view. The cylinder shaped architecture enables gorgeous view over the sea. You don't have to select a room in higher floors. The big windows give you the impression also in lower floors. Just let your curtains open before you sleep and enjoy the fantastic sun rise with amazing sea view. Excellent!
The room was big, clean and enabled enough space for two people. The decoration was fully ok. Sleep quality was just perfect. It was hard to get out from the comfy beds.
Generally I enjoyed my stay. The hotel building is nice and new. You can enjoy the roof bar with awesome view and very good service. The breakfast is just perfect. They offer wide range of options plus local specialities. You wouldn't want to leave the breakfast :)
I was aware of the fact that the hotel is located outside of city center. Since the hotel provides free shuttle service to& from airport and to &from city center; I didn't have any problems with the distance. Maybe, in case you go there for business and have limited time for leisure; the distance can be challenging.
The reason why I don't rate my stay is due to some small organizational problems I faced during my stay. They took away our dirty towels and didn't bring new ones. When we tried to call reception, we noticed that the phone in our room was broken :) when we reached the reception and informed about the problem; they forgot about us. So we spent the day with 1 towel. Not a good experience.
Another small thing was that someone from housekeeping came 2 hours before our check out time in our room to check the minibar. I was surprised and said that I have never experienced that the minibar was checked by housekeeping when the guests are there. Not a good impression for hotel guests. After having paid the expensive room rates, no one will cheat in case they use anything from minibar. Besides, you have our credit card number for guarantee.
For some other very small organizational changes we found the staff lying us. I mentioned this for another hotel I stayed this year. Lying to guests and hidden problems seem like a standard procedure globally. But we travelers are now experienced enough to see what is truth/ lie. Such a gorgeous hotel is not helping its reputation by lying for small things.
Overall the staff was very friendly, talkative and helpful. You can feel the Mediterranean culture there.
Despite the small organizational issues I faced, I believe I am going to stay in this hotel for my next trip to Izmir. Especially because of 3 things: fantastic view, comfy rooms and very delicious breakfast.
