My husband and I stayed at Urkmez for two nights, and I booked this hotel after reading all of the wonderful reviews on this site. I had never stayed at such a cheap hotel before (it's 32 euros a night) and was wondering what we were in for! Urkmez is a no frills budget place, but with the service and hospitality of a much more expensive hotel. Juju, one of the owners, is extremely friendly and went out of his way to make sure that we were happy and comfortable.
Our room was on the first floor (and I think that's a plus because there is no elevator and there are a lot of steep stairs to climb) and was perfectly nice. In fact, we noticed that almost all of the furniture was purchased from Ikea. :) We had a great little balcony with two chairs that overlooked the small town. Our bed was quite comfortable, even more so than at other hotels where we stayed. We did not have any problems with the shower, as some others did. The water was hot and the pressure was fine. The bathroom is very small, but I think that is the case with many Turkish hotels.
Breakfast on the terrace was excellent, with a wonderful view of Selcuk and a variety of yummy options. There is also a laptop on the terrace with wireless access and free wireless internet throughout the hotel.
The location of the hotel cannot be beat. It's about a 5 minute walk from the train station and is very close to many wonderful restaurants.
Our only snafu was that we checked out very early in the morning (around 7 am), and a young boy who did not speak much English helped us out because Juju was not available. It took us a bit of time to check out because he was not aware of the procedures and he had to be on the phone with Juju for several minutes to figure it out. However, that is a minor complaint. Our overall stay was wonderful, and I would highly recommend Urkmez to anyone.
