Pretty good. Stayed 2 different occassions. Bad points: rooms are super small, showers all seem to be broken, and even though the staff is very helpful they are not the least bit welcoming. Good points: central location near basmane station and bazaar, lots of restaurants nearby, good breakfast (the same stuff at every other hotel in turkey, though - cucumbers, tomatoes, cheese, bread, etc.), and overall, the hotel had a nice atmosphere.*If coming by train from airport, be warned, there are no train maps or helpful signs in any of the stations, and from my experience, if you ask someone, they'll give you the wrong information. From the airport, trains go directly to basmene station, which is the city center. It would be a good idea to download train map before coming.

Great value for money place. Hotel itself is generaly ok, stuff is frindly and helpful. Also on the 5th floor, there is a terrace where you can chill out in the evenings. Advice - stay away from 5th floor as there is a lift's motor room and it's pretty noisy.

Nice and affordable hotel

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Pros: Close to train station and restaurants.
Cons: The directions on the website need to be corrected if you are comming from the airport. It list Basmane station, but you only get that after transfer
Location: Restaurants and see view.
The hotel is value for money and it wa comfortable for my one night stay. It about 10 minutes walk from the sea front. Many restaurants nearby and closer to the bus booking office.

Dear Guest Many thanks for your review. From te airport you can come direct to the hotel with train. In fact I use it my self. The only thing is metro and train station is same. If you buy metro tickets then you need to make a transfer. If you choose the train you come staright to the hotel.

Not sure about it...

OK for one day, maybe two, if your plan does not include... being at the hotel! It very well placed, but indeed rooms are really small. Night employees do not speak English.

Good option for Izmir

Posted May 16, 2015
We stayed for one night in a standard twim room. The room was comfortable and clean for cheap room. Easy transport options with intercity buses and train two minutes walk. The bathroom was pretty decent for small room, and beds were comfortable.

Fair

I had to stay here (rather than uproot completely from the town) due to demand from a Turkish long weekend. The hotel's location has good and bad points. I was approached by a man claiming to be from the local council as I sat 80 meters from the hotel to have a meal and a drink and told that 100 meters up the road were hookers and three nearby hotels catered exclusively (and some more), and up the hill is a black spot populated mostly by immigrants. The hotel staff confirmed his advice, they did not lie. The hotel is 20 meters from bus service booking agencies and a bus station. I never felt unsafe in the hotel and they did give advice on alternative eating places. The room I had was indeed small, and overlooked rubbish people had thrown out of their hotel windows on to a roof, there was a fridge, the linen was proper linen fabric (something that is seldom seen) and clean, though the bathroom decor and polish was lacking. While theirs is not a full service gym, I got a 40 minute jog on a treadmill. The downstairs amenities looked to me to be suitable if you had say a school group, to entertain away from the street hazards. The convenience and price served its purpose, to visit Ephesus. I have now met pansion owners in Selcuk proper. I would suggest that if your stamina for endless bus rides, schedule, and the seasonal prices allow it, skip Izmir budget offerings but so long as you are sensible and listen and ask, you can avoid harm if you must stay at this hotel.

Scamming staff. Very small rooms.

Posted Feb 20, 2015
Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Location: Horrible location. Everyone is just trying to rip you off one way or another. It's even dangerous to walk around.
I ordered food twice, and on both occasions I was charged about double the given price. I asked for an invoice, and after a long wait the brought a "made up" one. The room I booked is for 2 guests, but when a friends came just a couple of hours of my check out, they did not allow him to go to my room, and not even to the hotel cafe. I don't even want to remember my stay in this hotel.

Great hotel in a great location. However, the bathroom was not very clean and wifi was so slow.
