CONCLUSION

It was my first time to visit Izmir and I was glad I stayed at the Hilton Izmir. The view from the rooms and the executive lounge were just fantasticπŸ˜‰ The food offerings both from the breakfast restaurant and the happy hour in the executive lounge were extensive. They were even serving quail eggs in the main breakfast restaurant which I've seen for the first time in a hotel's breakfast buffet so kudos to you guys. The welcome amenity of fruits and a bottle of red wine, as well as the birthday cake on my birthday was just impressive. Of course, all the staff were very professional and helpful. If there's one little thing I wish for, it would be that they have their own fitness center and pool exclusive for their guests since during my visit to their Health Club, it was really crowded. Overall, a very nice hotel and I would definitely stay here again when I'm back in Izmir 😍
