“Very nice clean hotel but....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Jimmys Place is a very nice clean hotel situated in the centre of Seluk with off street parking nearby. We had a Standard Double room which included an ensuite (toilet and shower). Nice and lean though the water is quite cool in the mornings as it is solar based so make sure you shower well in the evening! Ephesus is within walking distance - about 2 km to the lower gate. We would have stayed more than the two nights except we felt we had been conned, which was disappointing after all the good reviews we had read. We arrived on the 9th November and the price on the website for a Standard Double Room is very clear. From the 1st November, it is a low season rate of 25 Euros compared to the high season rate of 30 Euros, however Jimmy refused to honour the price on his website and charged us 30 Euros. He said they had not updated the website yet. We felt this was very poor and it leaves a bad taste. My advice would be o get the price confirmed on an email before you arrive.

Jimmy's Place is located very close to the bus station so you can see why this place is on to a winner. The room was basic, but clean and the staff friendly and good value. Even though it was one of one more basic places I stayed during my visit to Turkey, it was the only hotel with a sink plug,

I stayed at Jimmy's for 2 nights in a deluxe room with balcony. The room was very spacious and the bathroom very big and nicely decorated. It was directly opposite the cami but the double glazed windows kept the noise out. Staff were very nice and the air conditioning in my room worked well. It's located very close to the town otogar (bus station) and you walk 5 minutes behind it to find. The staff can recommend a local hairdresser if you need some pampering at a very reasonable price.

The only thing that wasn't that nice but obviously was done one day for a reason was the smell of moth balls in the reception area). The bed mattress also was pretty hard. In Turkey this is fairly normal but that mattress seemed harder than others I have slept on here.

Room Tip: 310 was my room.

jimmy is ideally situated in selcuk for many reasons. First because from Selcuk you can visit most of the egean cost. Second because you can also really be in the center of town near the big Saturday market and in a quiet place. Not far from the otogar (one minute away) and not far from the station, this hotel also has an outdoor swimming pool.This hotel is very well decorated, and the two managers Alex and Jimmy are welcoming you in a lovely way, they actually make you feel really welcome. Theyu speak perfect English. Their rooms really have hot water and are very clean. The breakfast is a buffet and contains a lot of nice and varied foods among which some fruit and filter coffee. They also posess an extensive library of travel books. When you stay there, you feel respected and after the horrible place we had experienced before we were delighted to stay there for a 4 days stay at a very convenient price. Don t hesitate if you are in Selcuk just go there.

There was located in center of Selcuk. I was satisfactory in every way. Service, price, staff, cleanness, breakfast was good. Selcuk's accomadation was good than another area's one, I think.

This was our second stay at Jimmy's Place - last time two years ago. We had a family room with four single beds, and the room was a good size - the bathroom was huge. We found the staff to be very helpful, and we parked outside on the road which was fine. There isn't a restaurant on the site, so we ate out in the town for dinner. Breakfast was OK. Although we drove to the hotel, we caught the Dolmus to Ephesus, which we felt was easier, and it was cheap.

We spent only one nigth in our visit to Ephesus.
The rooms were OK (clean and big) but the quality of the breakfast could be better (low quality of served products).
The staff could be nicer with the guests, specially one of them.
There is a lot of paper information in the reception for visiting the surrondings and the rest of Turkey that can be helpful.
