Great Hotel in Izmir. Very friendly staff, very nice facility with all the amenities. The room is very large and very comfortably but the bath room is the real treasure of the room. Very good the breackfast with any thinkable foods. Just a little too dark the restaurant at dinner

Half of our good memories from our trip to Izmir comes from staying at this hotel. A fantastic Renaissance hotel, compact but with smart use of space, and extremely well-appointed rooms and a super-central location close to Kordon and Alsancak. The hotel team should get a gold star for their hospitality.

As a Marriott Gold member, enjoyed the free breakfasts (do try the Gevrek and the local honey, unbelievable!) and made extensive use of the lounge downstairs, enjoying the free cappuccinos and snacks.

The staff was very quick and accommodating, especially the amazing breakfast crew. Interactions with the front desk guys downstairs were generally very helpful, with a varying degrees of friendliness and informedness.

In terms of nearby restaurants consider Sakiz (on the other side of the Swisshotel Efes, opposite Midpoint past Burger King, quite good) and a place called Servat on the side street. We tried many others (including the fish restaurant recommended by the front desk) and were generally unimpressed.

Overall, we loved this hotel and would heartily recommend it.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quite good

This hotel was a great experience , relaxing , close to the main tourist spots and very close to the Cordon. The room we had was very nicely appointed , clean and modern with some nice Turkish touches . The bathroom / shower had this blue tiled design that makes one think of the Hamam. Modern conveniences completes the room , very comfortable bed , plenty of storage space , fast internet wifi connection and a view of the waterfront and Cordon. But my favorite aspect of the hotel was the Shala spa area where the saunas and Hamam was located. An oasis of relaxation and serenity. Good spot to unwind after a tour of Efes or a long day sight seeing about Izmir . The spa staff were very kind and helpful also. The pool which is much like a giant jacuzzi featured with massaging jets for your body adds to the sit back and relax theme here. Overall, a great place to stay and good value for the money. I'll be back when I visit Izmir again .

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The staff are very helpful and kind. Our preference for pillows was seen to immediately. The room is luxurious, spacious and the bathroom with separate toilet is stunning. It's in Hammam (Turkish bath ) style with 2 kinds of showers.
The hotel is very near to the waterfront and its many excellent restaurants.
The Hotel Spa is amazing and we had great reflexology treatments with Della! Would have loved to have stayed longer!
I do feel that breakfast should be included in the price of the room, but there was a deal of breakfast, fast internet and free snacks and drinks in the lobby for 30 euros per day for the 2 of us, which worked out well.
I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: I am sure that all rooms are good. Ask for a room so you have a peek of the sea. High up!

We spent 2 nights using Izmir as base for trips around the city. The hotel is exactly what you can expect from a Renaissance, very good service, attention to details with a local twist.
Location could not be better, only a bit difficult to find as my GPS did not undestand the correct location, a good reference believe me or not is Hilton Hotel, after knowing that you can find the hotel easily.
Breakfast was good. Only flaw was the room not made at 4:30 pm... had to wait after a tiring day...
Interesting point is the bathroom, I believe it should resemble a turkish bath.

Staying 3 nights for business. The hotel location is excellent. It’s in the central location and just a short walk to restaurants and the waterfront. The vibe of the hotel is boutique-ish with the lounge feels and they have DJ spinning in the lobby on Tuesday night. The room is clean, upscale, modern and spacious. I stayed in a king-bed room and it had extra couch, reading chair with an ottoman – a very nice touch. Bathroom is split into two side with sink in the middle which is an interesting setup. One side is the toilet with door and the other is the shower with a Turkish bath sink. There’s no bathtub. The hotel room was quiet even though the room I stayed is on the 3 rd floor facing the street. Breakfast was included in my rate. It was plentiful and a lot of choices and was served on the top floor with a view of the city. Check-in and Check-out was easy and smooth. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay. I would stay here again.

I stayed at the hotel twice during my recent trip to Izmir. I found the staff of this hotel very helpful and patient, from helping with bus/Greek ferry schedule to area attractions and directions. The room was very nice with marble shower. I would stay here again, which I already did. The location was very convenient, with easy walking distance to the beautiful waterfront, restaurants, ferries, and bazaar.
