“Nice but not nice enough to justify the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We visited this hotel for 2 days while seeing ephesus. We had had a long drive prior to our checking in so I decided to book the top rated B&B in the area despite a $90 price. The hotel was new and pleasant, the rooms were of moderate size. The breakfast was average. The one issue I have is the lack of sincerity from the owner and staff, I felt as though they were so concerned about reviews that they kept mentioning it and this made me feel a bit uncomfortable. Overall I have some regrets considering the price of the hotel because $90 for a night i MUCH to MUCH considering that this is a bed and breakfast in a small town. I would say the hotel is worth maybe $45 per night as there are many comparable alternatives at this price.

Room Tip: Shop around! after a few mistakes we found excellent rooms in and around turkey for very reasonable...

This hotel is clean and nice but still average when compared to other bed and breakfasts. The managers were too overbearing and they were desperate for a good review that they mentioned it day and night. It got to be really annoying and it felt like they were trying too hard to impress that it was very insincere and uncomfortable for us. The breakfast was not very good and poor choices were offered. The owners watch how much you eat and if the guests look like they are eating too much they will try to force a fixed portion breakfast on you the next day. I think that there are other hotels one can stay at in the area for cheaper and for same value/quality.

This is a small hotel located very centrally less than 3 Kim's from Ephesus and 500 metres from the town centre with many restaurants and shops. The hotel is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean with every detail considered. The breakfast was tasty and generous with fresh squeezed juice and home made jam. Each day eggs are served differently. The best part is the friendliness of the owners who could not do enough to help. One evening when our grown up sons were sick they put on an impromptu soup so we didn't need to go out even though they don't normally do dinner or lunch.

The Saint John Hotel is a beautiful building to stay in. It is a cosy place run by a small family, who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Our every need was accommodated for, the breakfast spreads were top-knotch, and they even drove us to the airport in Izmir at the end of our stay. Very, very highly recommended.

This hotel was absolutely incredible! The staff were all exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. The service was amazing, food was great, and the hotel was extremely clean. Rooms were comfortable and the hotel is a five minute walk from the center of town. They really made my friends and me feel so welcome!

We had a great stay at this small boutique hotel. The rooms were clean and cozy. The hotel itself is on a back street so it stays quiet but it only a five minute walk to the downtown area. The best part of the hotel was the hospitality of the staff. They took pride in costumer service and went far out of their way to make sure you felt comfortable. Great place!
