We took the train to the Alcansak station, and arrived late at night. We accidently wandered into a VERY sketchy area, with all of our luggage and two small children! Thankfully, we were able to get online and quickly book the Ramada Izmir. A taxi took us there without any problem, and the stay was very nice for the price.
Breakfast looked impressive, but not great tasting. Staff was very snooty; they obviously thought their hotel was the best the world had ever seen.
