                                Perfectly comfortable room. Good location to city center. Nearest bus stop for airport.

                                Loooong queue line to check in.

                                Best things I liked about Swissotel Grand Efes Izmir: 1- the rooms 2- the location

                                I can't say there was anyting I didn't like, but the Sky Bar can use some improvement.

                                very friendly staff. best location. everything brand new.

                                was just a small problem with valet parking which they apologized kindly.

                                The service was great and the spa was one of the best I have experienced. Huge pool, saunas and hammams. The location was amazing as well.

                                The hotel wouldn't honor my Emirates Skyward Club 30% discount because I booked through Booked.net.

                                The hotal is ideally located on the embankment with the view on the marina. It has a large territory with the kids' playground, palm garden and lovely green lawns. Indoor and outdoor pools, fitness centre, spa facilities with hamam, sauna and steam room. After the massage in hamam you are served a cold airan (local cultured milk drink). Personnel is very friendly and helpful. There is a car paking service for the guests. Breakfast is lavish and you can find anything you might want in the morning - eggs, vegetables, fruits, cheese, meat, fish, pastry, youghurt, muesli, tea, coffee, juice. In the evening you can dine in the roof restaurant with the view on the sunset and the ships, or in the Aquarium restaurant at the ground floor.

                                It's not a cozy hotel for honey-mooners, it's a large business hotel, over 200 rooms, never ending corridors with the similar doors, elevators, conference-rooms, busses arriving, loads of bags at the reception area. So if you are looking for a quite, relaxing stay with the atmosphere you should pick another hotel. Security issues which are very important for this hotel are not adding to the relaxating atmosphere - the car is scanned with the mine detector at the entrance, the front doors are followed by the metal frame.Looks like they expect an attack any minute.

                                This is a comfortable and service oriented deluxe hotel with Swiss flair and Ottoman hospitality. A modern , elegant and relaxing place to enjoy a great spa.

                                Hotel has great facilities: very good restaurants and breakfast was great. Top of the line gym with latest equipment and good hours (closing at 11pm). Also had a top quality hair cut at a very reasonable price. Spent easter weekend and they had one day of activities for kids. They have a small playground for kids. Overall very good hotel!!!

                                Rooms were not ready and had to wait in the lobby for a couple of hours. Could not order food to charge for the room as I was not checked in. Only a few hotel staff spoke english which made it difficult to communicate...

                                It was just awesome !!!! I can say that my future existance in izmir would be absolutely at this hotel!!! The staff was perfect polite and helpful!! Thanks for everything

                                There could be more jacuzzi pools and the breakfast could be cheaper !!!

                                Very smart swish atmosphere. The hotel makes you feel relaxed in an elegant setting. Amazing swimming pool, nice decor and luxurious rooms with large bathroom. We asked for a room facing the garden which I would recommend. A oasis set apart from the dusty hustle and bustle of izmir. 3 mins walk from the Kordon where you can stroll by the sea or have a drink in one of the bars.

                                The staff around the hotel dont speak good enough English, which should be expected at a 5 star international city hotel. The reception staff speak adequate english but the restaurant and pool staff didnt speak any at all. I can speak some turkish but it could be a problem for those visitors who dont speak Turkish.

                                I stayed in the old Buyuk Efes many times - from when it first opened in 1964. The modernisation by Swissotel has been done tastefully, bringing its facilities up to date. I was in Izmir to meet old and new business colleagues. The city amazed me! I have seen all the world, but was very impressed with Alsancak, Izmir! Congratulations all...
