5/5 Excellent

The hotel host and manager Okyay was awesome, a man of great info of the area and a great ambassador for Sokak and the area. He helped make our stay there an incredible experience. The location was perfect. Center of everything. Easy walking distance to Town and most everything to see. Pool was well kept although we did not use it as it was beginning of November. No safe in the room but always had security on site and main gate closed at 11 pm. So glad we stayed in town rather than the resorts out at the beach area as nothing is close by from there.

The owners were wonderful hosts and always helpful and kind. The hotel was immaculate. Very interesting story about the build of the hotel. You must ask the brothers to tell you about the artifacts on the property. This is a must stay!!

The best part of the hotel was the location. Selchuk is the best venue for exploring Ephesus. The hotel is perfectly situated to Ephesus, Temple of Artemis, Basilica of St John, The Ephesus Museum and the Castle. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated. The staff (Okyay in particular) are friendly and go out of their way to make your stay complete. This was the best hotel in Turkey
