Great location great little place! hosts so lovely-our plane was late but no hassle at all. & we were greated to an apartment strewn with roses for our honeymoon. such a nice, thoughtful touch. otherwise the location was fantastic, and apartment spacious. the one and only negative is that the place smelt like smoke which as non smokers was strong. but otherwise great experience
My dad and I stayed here for 3 nights, and felt like we got an excellent value. The location can't be beat. It's right next to the Havas airport shuttle bus stop, but tucked away at the back of a building on a quiet street. I slept like a baby! It's also near the Pasaport ferry station, and walking distance to Konak, Alsancak, Fuar, the Metro, and several bus lines. There's a big grocery store at the end of the street, and a little fruit market right next door.
The decor is on the cheaper end of the Ikea line, but it was cute and comfortable. One bedroom has a full bed, TV, clothes rack, dresser, and night stands. The other only has a twin bed and no other furniture....so I pulled a dining room chair as a makeshift nightstand. They set out disposable slippers for us, and have a shampoo and conditioner dispenser in the shower, which were nice touches. Oh, and the shower is really great. It's a huge shower head mounted on the ceiling, so it's like standing in a rainstorm....just lovely.
The only issue we had was somewhat slow communication. Some of my messages went unanswered, and in fact we arrived in Izmir without definite plans for where and when to meet. The issue was compounded by the fact that I was without my international cell phone, and the hosts don't speak much English. In the end it all worked out though, and I suppose that just comes with the AirBnB territory....if I expected a multilingual hotel concierge, I ought to have paid for a hotel, right ;)
The apartment is in a great location, a block away from one of the best restaurants in Izmir and two blocks away from the waterfront. It's a nice neighborhood, so even though the apartment was on the first floor, it is relatively safe.
However, the condition of the apartment itself is not as nice as in the photos. Most importantly, it was not clean at all. There were guests the night before in the apartment, and even though we did not check in until late at night, it was clear that the apartment was not cleaned (dirty dishes put back in the drawer and cabinets, stains in the bathroom). The bathroom also had a drain/pipe problem and it smelled terrible (like sewage) our entire few days there.
Our hosts were very nice though (except for being nearly 30 min late to check in), and even came to the apartment to let us in after we accidentally locked ourselves out one night.
We based ourselves out of this ground level suite for one week in Izmir. The location is very good, with easy access to many nice cafes, restaurants, shops and the main touristy sites. It's close proximity to the Basmane (train station) also makes it easy if you are arriving or leaving by train. The suite was comfortable and had the basic supplies that we needed. There was a bit of a miscommunication as we were given an address for a building up the street, but luckily there is an internet cafe right there and the host was able to find us and show us the correct building.
The Apartment is really beautiful and comfortable and the service is perfect. A recommendable Apartment with a really good Location.
