Stayed for a whole week when I had initially planned just to stay a few nights and switch pensions. The owners are very friendly and are always alert, their English is limited but they truly give a meaning for Turkish hospitality. They will always offer kahve or çay and they serve kahvalti, of breakfast from 0730-0930. Rooms are basic and... More

We looked at a couple of Pensiyons listed in our travel guide but were all just out of our price range. One of these Pensyion owners pointed us in the direction of Barim, and a good recommendation it was. The rooms were considerably cheaper but just as nice, it came with a good breakfast and the owners were very kind... More

Clean room with nice hostess and family on a quiet street. Located directly behind the Ephesus Archaeology Museum, this pension is located near the city center but far enough so one does not hear the all-night carousers. Good breakfast included in price. Near the bus station but a bit of a walk from the train station. Free wifi.

We travelled as a family of 5 and enjoyed everything about Barim. The owner and his wife are friendly and helpful and the pension is well located for all the attractions and the restaurants. It is very good value for money. We would recommend it

Basic accommodation. Plus points: -Owner was alert, always popping his head out from the reception whenever he hears us going in or coming out. -External decorations on the hotel is nice. -Location: Walking distance to museum, slightly nearer to Ephesus relatively to other places in town and walking distance to Mehmet & Ali Baba Kebab house (nice friendly eating place,...

I dream to have a house as this, green, full of different plants,sympatic decoration everywhere, smells home and wind of countriside...they also have nice living room for reception, considerable service. Not difficult to find coz just behind the museum. The only pity is the condition of room is a little old, but that doesn't cover its comforts and nice atmosphere.... More

Conveniently located close to the bus station, Barim Pension is run by a friendly couple. This is a basic backpackers accommodation that is suits you when you are out most of the day visiting the museum and ruins and you are on a budget. The breakfast is basic but that meets expectations. The room that we stayed was with three... More

We initially had reservations at another place in Selcuk. While walking around, we passed the Barim Pension and I was taken by how beautiful it looked - encased in bougainvillea and lots of interesting metal work. Once we returned to our original booking, we were overwhelmed by the traffic noise and realized we did not want to spend the night.... More

Very lovely family run place catering toward cyclists but also to other travelers. Cute, vintage buildings with rustic charm and budget price point. Avoid the street facing rooms for noise control. They offer a turkish breakfast, wifi in the entry area and are in a good location near the bus station. A lovely breakfst courtyard complete with fountain and ivy... More

We were underwhelmed by this hotel after reading the positive reviews. While the family running the hotel seemed quite kind, our room was really more like a room in a hostel. Our bathroom had no shower curtain/divider so anytime you showered, the whole space was soaking wet - the toilet, sink, everything. Meaning that 4 hours later you still had... More
