The hotel is comfortable, well located and extremely well priced. We had the smallest room for two nights. It was more than adequate - we don't spend much time in the room and you won't either. There's too much to experience in the area. The hotel has a charming rooftop restaurant/lounge/drinks... read more

THe place is next to John Basilica and it looked pretty good from outside. We went inside and guided to the rooftop by the friendly reception guys. But thats all that they had to offer. On rooftop restaurant there were guests and one guy at the restaurant actually behaved as if we have disturbed his evening by coming there and... More

Charming hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Very short walk from otogar and from train station, so easy to get to. It's right across the road from the St. John basilica ruins and the old fort. And the give a free daily shuttle to Ephesus (10 minutes away).

We had dinner at the Hotel Bella rooftop restaurant and enjoyed an amazing home-cooked meal with beautiful views of the city. Friendly staff & great value.

Meals are served on the very attractive roof top terrace. They dooffer an a la carte menu, but whilst we were there everyone opted for the meze. There is a wide selection of home cooked hot and cold Turkish dishes and you simply choose a variety that you fancy. They were all lovely and as I remember it was only... More

No formal menu so you choose your food from a cabinet. Set menu optons were reasonably priced. The food was good (particularly the salads) but didn't stand out. The staff were friendly and helpful. Not a bad option despite my comments.

The hotel has the best food that we hadin Selcyk. It offers a set menu which includes soup, dessert, bread, multiple side dishes and a main dish( fish, chicken, beef ). It’s a very good value and the food is excellent. The view is also fantastic since the restaurant is situated on the roof of the hotel. It has the... More

We were staying at Nilya, the sister hotel of Bella, but could not give up this opportunity to dine at Bella's talked about rooftop restaurant. So we booked a dinner here, even prior to our coming to Selcuk. The view is uncomparable. From where we sat, we could see the beautiful Basilica, across the road from Bella and the stork's... More

On recommendation from the Rough Guide book we ate at this hotel. The food was bland and overpriced and the waiters were completely disinterested in us. I definitely would not go back to or recommend this restaurant.
