One of the best we had our entire vacation. Clean rooms, wonderful outdoor pool, and the nicest front desk staff you will ever meet. The wife of the owner is a native English speaker, and was totally lovely and helpful. She knew everything we needed to know about transport to/from Ephesus nearby, and was happy to answer all our questions.... More

The hotel provides a clean and comfortable room with private facilities and small balcony. The bed was excellent and a good night's rest attainable. The hotel reception is most professional and speaks good English - very welcoming! The basic breakfast is a buffet style, a most suitable way to serve and adequate given the price. The hotel swimming pool would... More

This is my most memorable stay of the 2 weeks. This hotel had a very hospitable environment, right next to Johns Castle and so much more. Everyone in Selchuk was nice beyond nice. The staff at the hotel Mustafa and Metin became friends as did the owners puppy and son. So wonderful. We did not need 5 star am entities... More

We came across this place by accident, we looked in the Rough Guide to Turkey and didn't know what to expect. We took a chance and were very pleasantly surprised. We had a room which stepped out onto the pool terrace. A few people were staying there but we only new that when we saw them at breakfast. No noisy... More

Judging from the review in Lonely Planet, I expected something a little more picturesque but was disappointed with the actual conditions of the hotel and room. Everything in the lobby and in the room seemed old and as if in need of replacing. The doors on the shower didn't function so well and someone had left their used gum by... More

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
