We did not expect the most inviting hotel to be Hotel Nilya...it was decorated very nicely with Turkish ceramics, woodwork. The views from the patio are incredible. Our room had a very nice bathroom, beds comfortable. We really enjoyed the breakfast and dinner. Hotel staff are very hospitable. Ephesus was only 5 km away.

This is a small hotel that is wonderously decorated. The walls in and out of the rooms are full of pretty ceramics and furniture. There's a flat screen TV over the fireplace but no TV in the room. The breakfast was quite good served in the reception. Fatima did a good job every morning, The small garden resembled the rest... More

My friend and I stayed at Hotel Nilya in early February before we visited Ephesus. It was the perfect hotel to stay for a night or two and explore the area. We drove from Pamukkale and the hotel provided directions and suggested we stop in Aphrodisias on our way. We decided to take the slight detour and it was well... More

My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Nilya for a one day sojourn in Selcuk. The co-owner, Nazmi, was absolutely wonderful. He offered terrific suggestions for our day and drove us to Ephesus, the ruins of the Church of the Seven Sleepers, and the remains of the Temple of Artemis. He recommended a small restaurant specializing in Gozleme (essentially... More

It took our driver quite some time to find our hotel, tucked away from everything else. What a beautiful place. The hotel is completely decked out with all manner of turkish furniture, lamps, sconces and carpets. The towels in the room were the fluffiest we had on our Turkish trip.The hotel has a sister hotel down the road a little... More

We really enjoyed our stay - fabulous hospitality ! If you want to visit esphesus and pamukkale - it's a good base and we were extremely grateful that the owner kindly drove us to a local restaurant with two tired children under 3! He even kindly helped us order.

We spent two full days/three nights in Selcuk in November to see Ephesus but ended up really enjoying Selcuk itself as well. Hotel Nilya and Hotel Bella are owned and operated by a family and it shows in how friendly and helpful the staff are. When we arrived the owner provided a great overview of the nearby places to visit... More

Nice room and features. But be aware, the rooms are small. Breakfast was fine but not amazing. Had room 12 which was very quaint. Though you are over the Reception room and can hear the staff below sometimes. I loved that the owner and team are very friendly and even the owner himself arranged to transfer us to and back...

The Nilya is a sparkling clean, two story hotel located in Selcuk, only minutes from Ephesus. It is set in a lovely little garden, has beautiful carved wood furniture and beams. The owners (who also own the Hotel Bella) are quite accommodating, especially by driving you to Ephesus, dropping you off at the top of the hill, and picking you... More
