We spent 2 nights here. On the first day, we visited Pamukkale which is about 3 hours away from Kusadasi. On the second day, we went around Ephesus/House of Virgin Mary/St. John Basilica, which are all just about 20 mins away from the hotel. The restaurant at the 7th floor offers a fantastic view during breakfast. The bar at the 8th floor was also very comfortable although it was totally deserted when we went there.

Aside from Pamukkale and Ephesus, there is really not that much else to do in Kusadasi itself. So if you don't plan to drive 3 hours (each way) to Pamukkale, a 1-night stay would be sufficient.

There are a lot of activities on the streets at night. On our second night, there was a concert across the street so it was quite noisy. But I was too tired and sleepy to care. My wife, however, had a harder time sleeping because of the blaring speakers from the event.

Room Tip: Choose the regular Sea-view room (no need for corner room). Lower floors tend to be noisy

Pros:
- Modern hotel with contemporary, clean, well maintained rooms
- Good breakfast and dinner buffet at the hotel with spectacular views of the ocean
- Excellent service by friendly staff
- Free wifi
- Great neighborhood to stroll around. Plenty of shops and restaurants around. There is a Starbucks in the ground floor for a quick pick me up.

Honestly cannot think of any negative comments regarding the hotel. We had a wonderful stay here and it as a high point of our time in Turkey. Great value for money! Highly recommended.

We only stayed one night but were impressed by the cleanliness of this hotel. Everything seemed new and modern, and the roof top pool was very nice. The breakfast was good. We loved the location because it was easy to walk out, explore the area and find our way back. The bathroom and shower were great. The only drawback were the beds which offered only a small thin blanket, but that bothered my son and lot more than it did me. The wifi was excellent.

Modern, clean and contemporary. Unfortunately our room had an awful view of some back buildings. Some have a sea view. Very centrally located. Very helpful front desk staff and polite. Lovely view from top of building and swimming pool. Gorgeous view from dining room. Downsides: noise from street below esp on sat night. Revolting night buffet. Stay away! Average breakfast. Food could use some TLC.

We stayed at the Ilayda Avantgarde for two nights recently. Due to some sloppy trip planning on my part, we had two nights in Kusadasi when we really only needed one. However, this hotel was so awesome, it was not a big deal at all! The proximity to the waterfront is great and because most people use Kusadasi as a base, this view is definitely preferred versus a busy center street. The rooftop bar and pool are amazing and my husband and I enjoyed the sun and view for a few hours in an afternoon. The included breakfast was absolutely fantastic. There was a wide variety of options and everything was super fresh each morning.

The property seems quite new and many of the touches are worthy of a much higher room rate. The rooms are spacious and the bed was moderately comfortable. It really earns it's fifth dot because of the value. It was evident by walking the waterfront strip in Kusadasi that it's one of the nicer hotels but the price would lead you to believe otherwise.

Pro-top #1: there is another Ilayda property right down the street. Be sure to specify Avantgarde or else you'll get dropped off at the wrong spot like we did!

Pro-tip #2: the wifi in the lobby and other public areas were decent, but the in-room wifi was pretty much non-existent.
