We stayed for 2 nights in Hotel Nilya during our trip to Selcuk. It is less than 3 mins walk to St John's Basilica. They also have sister hotel Bella which is right in front of St John's basilica. The owners gave us a ride to ephesus which was extremely nice. Once we were done with tour we were picked... More

This is a very pleasant hotel with friendly staff. The owners also have the Bella hotel around the corner, where the food and views are quite good, and a shop selling excellent porcelain. Close to the centre of town and a nice place to stay for a couple of days. Near St John's tomb which is worth a visit. They... More

This nice little hotel has been recently renovated by the owner with beautifully carved furniture and decorations from local artisans. The owner and staff were incredibly friendly. The location a great, up the hill from the ancient city of Ephesus and right next to the Basilica of St. John. The courtyard is a great place to read, relax, and enjoy... More

While visiting the historic sites in and around Selcuk I stayed at the beautiful Nilya Hotel. A small hotel which is decorated in a unique Turkish style with beautiful furniture and Turkish rugs. Even though I has a late arrival the staff were available to deliver bags and help settle us into the hotel. All facilities in the room were... More

We traveled to Selcuk via an overnight bus from Istanbul, my family of six which included my husband and myself, our son Joshua and his wife, Cheryl, and their two daughters (our granddaughters!*) Aislinn, 13, and Ceallan, 11. When we arrived at the bus station and asked directions to the Nilya, we were told immediately where it was and how... More

The manager and taxi driver were so accommodating for my late arrival due to a delayed flight. They welcomed me in even though it was the middle of the night and made sure I had everything I needed. The rooms are sparse but comfortable, but the courtyard in which I had breakfast and the delicious breakfast the next day were... More

The hotel is immaculately clean, the location is near the St.John Basilica and is a bit hard to find. The proprietor is friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Others have commented about his sales pitch for items from his shops. He did talk about them briefly, but was not insistent. The hotel has a welcoming courtyard and tables for an... More

A charming property with lots of style. Check in was efficient but abrupt. Our room was small but efficient and overlooked the courtyard which is a meeting place for hotel guests. Our hosts were friendly and offered lots of touring information and assistance - they also owned a travel agency!! Breakfast was excellent and taken in the courtyard. Located in... More

Owned by Erdal and Nazmi, this little hotel is very tastefully decorated in an ethnic Turkish style. Room was very comfortable with a lovely sitout outside. Breakfast was delicious and served on the table. The hotel itself is centrally located and walking distance to the Fort and other minor attractions. Erdal is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and was kind... More

I stayed here for two nights but would have been glad to spend a week. It is walking distance from the train and the town and after following a slightly winding path, you arrive by a stone fence that opens up to a charming courtyard filled with flowers and trees and the calming sound of a small fountain. This is... More
