“Very bad location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Just how can taxi drivers not know this place? We had a horrible experience looking for the hotel. It took us a couple of hours before we actually found it. It was a good thing we were at the convenience of having a private van that was included in our tour package. But then out driver had to go the extent of hiring another taxi to look for the place. To our frustration, even the taxi driver struggled to find it!

The good side -- rooms are clean and spacious. We were a family of 5 and stayed in a family room. The concept of the hotel is more "Ibis" like. I hated the bathroom though, because it was so tight! (And I am claustrophobic!). The price is all but good for our number and the staff were really helpful and friendly.

Stayed April 2014

I made a reservation the day before I arrived based on positive reviews, and Hotel Baylan exceeded my expectations. It is extremely close to the Basmane train station, and you can get anywhere in Izmir (including the airport) from the Basmane stop.

Hotel Baylan is exceedingly clean without being cold or sterile, and the rooms are modern and EXTREMELY spacious. The hospitality is that of a four-star hotel. I was escorted up the elevator to my room, and the host drew the curtains, turned on the television, and gave me a tour of the room as soon as we walked in.

This is by far the BEST economical hotel I've stayed at. I felt extremely safe and welcome. The only ding I have on the room is that the elevator is noisy--but hey, at least the place has an elevator!

Also, it was difficult for me to get directions in English, but that isn't a ding on the management. I recommend googling directions before arriving.

Room Tip: Choose a little further from the elevator, though I think all rooms are within elevator proximity.

we were a group of 10 people staying at the hotel. we definitely got value for money. The service received was excellent, rooms are modern, clean and bedding is always fresh.the breakfast was substantial every morning, with many tasty things to choose from. reception (Nejat and Kazim) was always willing to assit with anything we needed and able to negotiate a good rate. the wifi is fast. the hotel is conveniently located, able to walk everywhere and there are many shops and a pharmacy close by. thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Hotel Baylan has a great location if you arrive by train or need proximity to the Izmir train station. The hotel is clean, well-kept and the staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed one night and were able to roll our bags from and back to the train station. Many local restaurants and shops. You can walk down the main boulevard to the ocean. Recommended.

Room Tip: Hotel is on a quiet side street. Chose a room on the upper floors for a nice view of city.

We recently stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and we were quite pleased with our hotel selection. The rooms are clean, with fresh white bedding and the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is centrally located in the city making it easy to get around. The gentleman at reception are quite helpful ;Nejat and Kazim they assisted with airort transfers and day trips to Pammukale and Izmir and so much more. They also arranged breakfast at 6am for our group of 11 people as we were leaving early that morning and breakfast is normally from 7am. We appreciated that. We definately got value for money staying at Hotel Baylan.

For the price we expected 8 people on bunks in one room. However we were surprised to find a lovely hotel that you would expect to pay alot more for. Service was amazing. Everyone there was really helpful, rooms really nice and great location.
