The hotel is in a great location not just for Ephesus but also for the Basilica of St John and the Isa Bey Mosque which is next door (NB the call to prayer is NOT a noisy one!). It's just a few minutes' walk into town where there are lots of restaurants. A good room, small but adequate shower room,... More

We just spent a night at this hotel and love the staff at the Hotel Akay. They really go out of their way to ensure you are happy. However our room was very hot and the a/c didn't work. Nor did the bed side light or the wifi. But the restaurant is good, the pool is refreshing after a day... More

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Ephesus and were shocked at the conditions of this hotel. We think that there has been a change in ownership because the positive reviews from 2013 did not match our experience.The hotel was tired looking and unsanitary. We stayed in the newer building overlooking the pool and on the way to our... More

We recently stayed here and actually left earlier than planned. The room was expensive compared to other hotels in the area. I assume this might be because of the pool. The bathroom was clean enough, but there was mold in certain areas that made me not even want to use the shower. The bed was not very comfortable for two... More

My wife and I booked our stay on the basis of Trip Advisor and other positive reviews. Based on those reviews, the moderate price, and the very positive experience we had at a less expensive place in Istanbul for the previous three nights, we had high expectations in February 2014. Those expectations were not met. Details matter: a bathroom needs... More

My wife and I stayed in Hotel Akay in November for a couple of days in order to visit Ephesus. The room was fine and the staff friendly but the service was almost non existent: breakfast not ready at 08.00, room not made up, restaurant not open. The hotel may be great in the summer but don't expect too much... More

Checked in late after long drive and ferry from Greece. Helpful staff. Room spacious, clean and comfortable. Would have liked light switches near beds and a few wall sockets rather than extensions, but this is a minor detail. We're still here now. had lovely breakfast this morning and dinner from restaurant next door but sadly a couple booked into the... More

Enjoyed the pool and the terrace beside it. Breakfast was only average and left out uncovered for rather a long time. Staff very helpful with transport to Ephasus and town. At age 76 I found the number of stairs daunting...32 up to breakfast on the roof, another two flights down from room to pool so this could be a consideration... More

We stayed for 3 extra nights, last minute, in Selcuk. Hotel Akay was more than accommodating. It is clearly a family-run hotel, but everyone is very professional and eager to help. Clean, quiet rooms. Reasonable prices. We were excited to stay at a hotel with a pool, and the pool and subsequent courtyard were always clean and quiet. Just around... More

We stayed in Akay Hotel for two days 5th and 6th of August 2013. When we arrived the room was ok but the toilet cover was not cleaned! (urine from the previous guest I suppose). The roof top breakfast is a good idea, but somehow flies have to be kept away, or else food must be covered. Butter was under... More
