I read the reviews of this hotel and they couldn't be more wrong!!!
The front desk staff was wonderful and the location is great, that is where the good things about this hotel end. The breakfast was good as well.
My room: 104, smelled of the bathroom drain. I think this room my have formerly been a janitors closet. I complained about the smell, but there was a Marble Convention in town and no rooms to be had, anywhere. I was stuck. They offered to put something in the drain, which helped very little. The bed was about 50 years old and the stains on the mattress confirm it. The pillows were hard as cement and my room was over and next to a disco. The loud music started at 5pm and continued until at least 2am. Plus there was some sort of work going on during the day and the noise was everywhere. I could even hear the noise from the lobby.
There was NO hot water my 2 days stay and the view was of the fire escape and a wall.
Even as a budget travel place, which $75+ it was NOT worth it. I wouldn't recommend this place, even for budget travelers/backpackers.

... water is now 7KM away.
The city was built from marble that was mined from the mountains nearby.
The first traces of habitation date back to the 5000BC, when the Amazonians lived there.
Then it was settled by the Greeks, then Romans and then the Byzantine Empire (where Constantinople was the Capital).
It housed 250 000 people until the city was abandoned due to outbreaks of Malaria and ...
... are a must see. They are full of wonders dating back to the 2nd century BC. Pictures and words just don't do it justice. We drove past St Johns Basilica and the Virgin Mary's house. On the way to Sirince Village we stopped for the carpet weaving demonstration and low pressure sales pitch. It's kinda like going on that "Free 3 day trip to a resort" and having to sit through the time ...
... tab but we'll wait and see.
Sun 27.03.11 - So, after more than 24 hours in the air we arrived tired and weary in Izmir. We collected our hire car, set the GPS (known as "Tom" because its a Tom Tom) and headed for the Alican hotel, a comfortable hotel at the right price in down town Izmir. Fortunately the hotel allows you to book in after 9.30 am in the morning, which was great because we were both in need of a shower and ...
... com, I think. 'Gites'is a term for room you rent, without the breakfast.
For dinner, we ate at the Asian fusion restaurant "Jasmine'($15). It was ok but nothing special as I can't even remember it - I think we'll stick with the free dining rooms for the restof the trip.
Tomorrow is Egypt so busy 2 days ahead with an overnight stay in Cairo.
... hiking around (way around) the archaeological site, and came into the gold mine area entirely innocently by way of my overland hiking.
He wanted to see the pictures on my camera. Uh-oh.
Well, in turning the viewer on I was able to quickly click from the last photo (of the goldmine) forward, which scrolls around to the first picture in the camera's set. So I started to show him first a picture of the harbor of Chios, then through ...
