    Where to stay in Izmir

    The seaside town of İzmir caters to a range of budgets in terms of accommodations. You'll find most options concentrated within a few blocks, conveniently close to the waterfront, shops, restaurants, and nightclubs. These include moderately priced three- and four-star hotels and a number of budget-friendly hostels, as well as some guesthouses a little bit north and south of the downtown core. More expensive, upscale hotels sit a little bit east of the city core, right on the idyllic coast.
