Adnan Menderes International Airport is just 18 kilometers from the hotel, and public transportation options such as ferries, taxis, trains and buses make it easy for guests to explore the city.
The hotel features 137 guest rooms and suites, some of them overlooking the beautiful Aegean Sea. Each room has been designed with comfort and a hassle-free experience in mind.
