Guesthouses and B&Bs
Key Hotel is a black, gold and brown masterpiece down by Konak Pier. Located in a former bank building, the original vault is now a glass-topped atrium while the hotel includes glass elevators, a superb ground floor restaurant and concierge service...
Lola 38 Hotel
Not unlike sleeping inside a wedding cake, this eight-room symphony in pink and turquoise is a novelty. It’s a converted Greek stone house on the quiet end of the Küçük Deniz and is lots of fun, quite posh and supremely comfortable...
Located in the quiet end of the village just below the Temple of Athena, this stunner of a place has just three rooms (another two are on the way), guaranteeing stellar service from Ece, the affable owner...
Met Boutique Hotel
A boutique hotel really in name only, this flash hotel in the business district has 38 sleek rooms with strong colour schemes of red and black and white and streamlined furniture. It could, however, do with stand-alone desks or some extra space...
Reputedly the tallest building on Turkey's Aegean coast, the Hilton literally stands above the competition...
The Anıl has a central location, and winning views of the acropolis from its third and fourth floors. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped, though their turquoise furniture is as shocking as the pink exterior...
Above a gift shop in the Turkish quarter, Aki’s seven rooms won’t win any beauty pageants, but they are clean, well equipped and very central. Excellent bathrooms; room 2 faces a quiet square.
Ayvalik Palas Hotel
Not the prettiest seafront hotel, but the location is spot-on and it’s anonymous and serviceable, plus there’s a huge car park (₺10), a luxury in Ayvalık. Many of the 33 rooms face the sea.
A pair of 200-year-old Greek houses have been cobbled into most sophisticated accommodation...
Hotel Baylan Basmane
The 30-room Baylan is among Basmane’s best options. The entrance via the huge car park is a little disconcerting, but inside is a spacious and attractive hotel with a welcoming terrace-cum-garden in back...
In a brilliant location just a street back from the sea, the chaotically run but still charminmg Myhotel is a low-key alternative to the fancier chain hotels nearby...
Grand Zeybek Hotel
Despite the name, this isn't grand at all, but, along with its three sister hotels on the same street, it's one of Basmane's safer options. The plain old Hotel Zeybek (TL40/80) is across the street.
Konak Saray Hotel
The 27 rooms in this restored old Ottoman house (1855) in a less touristy part of the bazaar have been given an update, with minibar and desk. The rooms facing the atrium are smaller but modern and well priced for what they offer...
Les Pergamon Hotel
Now in the same stable as the Hera Hotel, this gorgeous but somewhat chaotically run stone property once served as a Greek school. The six rooms have their own names as well high ceilings, wooden floors, grey, black or violet bedspreads and rugs...
At the top of the village of Adatepe you’ll find the blissfully tranquil Hünnap Han, a restored country pile with nine traditionally decorated rooms, a lovely garden and stone courtyard.
Ongen Country Hotel
The delightful Öngen Country Hotel offers 30 rooms with lovely traditional decor and spectacular views over the wooded hillside to the village below and beyond. Go for room 16 or 23.
This very popular family-run place has 12 bright rooms. Those at the front have double glazing to keep the traffic noise out and those at the back overlook a garden; some have balconies...
Villa Dedem Hotel
This 18-room enjoys a central quayside location, but you might struggle to bag a room in summer, as it tends to welcome the same families back year after year. Still, if you get lucky, try to get one of the eight rooms with sea view and balcony.
Hotel Doğa Garden
This friendly little resort is often colonised by tour groups in the summer, but you might have its poolside bar-restaurant to yourself in the low season...
This 120-year-old Greek house, behind the eponymous former cathedral, is one of the more stylish in Ayvalık. There’s a vine-shaded terrace with sweeping views across the city, a communal kitchen and a decent book exchange...
İyon is a great choice for independent travellers. The mood on the two terraces is unobtrusive yet communal. The 10 rooms are simple but up-to-date, and the five downstairs open onto a lovely shared courtyard...
Guzel Izmir Oteli
It’s all change at the ‘Pretty’, making this budget option in Basmane even more attractive...
