Terrific hotel, nice rooms, stupendous buffet. They even had honey comb. Very comfortable bed, and a nice sunny bay window with 2 chairs for relaxing. The patio bar on the 9th floor was too windy and/or sunny, but the bar/patio on street level was very nice to sit in.
supposedly no internet in the rooms, but once I got connected in the lobby I was able to use it in my room.
Near the seafront and lots of restaurants and ferries.

The rest of our group had gone shopping and raved about the shopping in Izmir however we enjoyed the time at the ancient site.

I've promised myself I will come back ...
... a creepy guy who was trying to "help" us. Many of the locals were willing to try to help us find our way, but it seemed like each one had a slightly different version of where we should turn to find our hotel. We did eventually find our hotel after about a half hour, but it should have only been 15 minutes. As we had a very early flight the next morning we had a quick dinner at the hotel before heading off to bed.
... lash it to something and password protect it).
I can't say what I've seen of Izmir so far is beautiful... it's very urban and built up in a messy way. There are a few ancient ruins around but not presented well (perhaps they are works in progress).
Tomorrow I'm off on a day trip to the ruins of Sardis so hopefully (if my guide can find this hotel) it will be a fun day.
... thus "holy water". Each faucet offers benefits; one for health, one for wealth and one for love.
Next stop was the ruins of Ephesus, once a vital port until sediment filled in the area distancing the city ffrom the see by 8km.The wetlands first caused malaria, wiping out a large population and then, as the city was cut off from the sea people left and eventually the city was abandoned. We walked through the governmental ...
