Izmir has a lot of 4* hotels, many belong to international chains. This one is owned by a Turkish company and is one of the more traditional ones. The rates are usually a lot cheaper than, say, in the neighbouring Swissotel or Hilton. There is no grand reception hall, no swimming pool, no great views. I had a backside room, and despite the lack of grandeur, it was great. Big room, electric shutters, quiet (even when there was a party with music on the 9th floor just above). Very good Turkish breakfast with varying egg dishes. Very friendly and efficient staff. Central location in a quiet sidestreet less than ten minutes from the seafront. If you fancy grandessa, this may not be your cup of tea, anyone else can hardly do better. Will definitely stay here again.
