TravelPod Member ReviewsMini Hotel Izmir
Modern clean and efficient.
We arrived by car and they moved cones and we had on-street parking right in front of hotel.
English speaking staff was friendly and helpful. They gave us a map of Izmir and walking directions.
Room was medium size and very clean with just a touch of mold on grout in shower to prevent perfect mark.
Free WiFi was acceptable.
Average Turkish breakfast. Adequate.
Location was a long walk to center but doable. One demerit.
Very good value for the price we paid.
Definitely recommended. We would stay again.
