My wife, my daughter and I stayed in the Urkmez hotel at Selcuk on November 30th and December 1st last year, i.e., in 2012. We got down from the train from Izmir at aound 5 in the evening, dead beat after a day of hectic travelling and a delayed flight and overjoyed to find that the Urkmez where we were booked to stay was just a little over a hundred metres from the railway station. The room we were given was on the second floor overlooking the Selcuk museum and everything that Selcuk had to offer, by way of the town square, restaurants, cafes and curio/ gift shops were within five minutes on foot. Even the remains of the acquaducts and the cathedral were practicall next door. But the room was way too small for three people, there was no furniture except a rather rickety side-table and the bath was a bit of a joke - barely big for you to squeeze in, with the walls practically touching your skin if you tried to move. The small restaurant on the terrace has a decent view of the fort/palace and the breakfast is not bad, either, but you need to climb something like forty steep steps to reach it, and if your knees are not young, you would feel like giving breakfast a go-bye. The staff are courteous and even friendly, but we would much rather have an indifferent staff manning a hotel which can offer you a room and your breakfast on a lower floor and where the room and the bath are not pigeon- holes. Although I hate to say this for a friendly place, I would not stay in the Urkmez in Selcuk if I were to visit Ephesus again.
