This is a great little family owned basic hotel. The hotel is old and is basic but if you are looking for a nice, clean place to rest your head in Turkey, this little place is great. Very close to the Ephesus Museum, Church of St John and walking distance (30 Mins or so) to Ephesus itself. Bear in mind it is a basic hotel, but the service is great, the staff go out of their way to make the stay enjoyable and have stayed in far worse than this one. Overall a good quality and honest 2 star hotel but the service and feel of the hotel is great. In the winter the fire is cooking and there are board games and other things to entertain yourselves in the lobby. The food is also very good, having eaten there one of the nights we stayed. Food in town is aimed at tourists so be wary of the touts that will promise the world and deliver less. Hotel staff are happy to advise good places to eat outside of their hotel. Breakfast is also a good touch. I would reccomend an early start or late afternoon start to see Ephesus to beat the crowds, if you walk, you can stop in about half way at the Temple of Artemis ruins. The short cab ride to Mary, Mother of Jesus house is worth it, Selcuk is a cool little town, out of season it is very quiet, I can only imagine what it would be like in high season. Stay at the Kalehan
