This hotel is in a great location on a hill, 5 minutes walk to the tourist sector. The staff are very efficient and eager to please, the enclosed courtyard is beautiful for having the fine breakfast they serve and just hanging around, and its sister hotel (Bella) around the corner has a rooftop restaurant overlooking the fabulous Church of St...

The reviews on this place are so mixed, I wanted to try to add some clarity. The rooms ARE beautifully decorated and the bathrooms shiny and new. Yes, they do ask you to NOT put paper in the toilet. This is common throughout Africa, the Middle East, Asia and South America in budget accommodations or old and/or historic areas. If... More

We had less than 24 hours to tour Ephesus. The hotel arranged our airport pick up and drop off, a private tour guide and transportation to and from Ephesus. The rooms were nice but given that we were there for such a short time we didn't focus on the facilities. The sister hotel "Bella" has a roof top restaurant with... More

We stayed here one night following a night at Hotel Bella. The room was larger and was furnished in the same style. Breakfast was served in the courtyard. As mentioned, there is a mosque across the street and we were abruptly awoken in the wee hours of the morning. It is up and over the hill from downtown in a... More

This was probably the best place I stayed in Turkey. Their courtyard is very pleasant, the breakfast is good(included), and it is very close to the main drag of Selcuk and about a 3-5 minute walk to St. John's Basilica. The staff are very helpful and friendly. They have a sister hotel, Hotel Bella, and between the two, they coordinate... More

The hotel is well located for the tourist sights but you will blasted out by the call the prayer at 5 in the morning. There is no sleeping thru it. The rooms are very small but we'll decorated. Owner promised tea coffee anytime. This was ok unless you wanted it early. Early breakfasts were promised by 7:00 but never ready... More

After reading all the glowing reviews we decided to book a room here for two nights during our stay in Selcuk. The only positive about this hotel was it's close proximity to all the major tourist attractions. Everything else was one pretty awful. We got a hotel transfer for 140 turkish lira which was a little expensive but it's also... More

The Hotel Nilya is owned by Erdal Kahya and his partner. Erdal is a high-end collector and shop owner who has decorated the Nilya with some of the most beautiful Turkish tiles and artifacts imaginable. They have a sister hotel (the Bela) around the corner which has a restaurant on the roof with a view of the small, quaint, lovely... More

I have no complaints about the Nilya and would recommend staying there. BUT, avoid the shop the owners have in their sister hotel Bela. We bought two tiles which were set in a frame while we waited. The tiles were to be flush with each other. When I got home I opened the package I saw the 1/8 " gap... More

This is our third visit to Hotel Nilya, and we are so pleased to report that it is as wonderful as ever! We splurged for their spacious “suite,” number 12 which provided us with some much needed extra room, as well as the use of the wonderful second floor terrace. Their breakfasts are among the best we have had in... More
