“Good place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We have been there in July 2012. We really like this place. If you want to visit Ephesus, or Virgin Marry's house, or any other historical places of this region you may stay in this hotel! There are clean rooms, polite service, good restoraunt. Not bad location of hotel is very close to bus station.

Had an issue with Intrepid Travel and had to withdraw from the tour and got stranded at Canberra Hotel. The manager had gone to the extreme to make everything so much easier for me. Assisted in getting a bus to Istanbul and as I had to hang around Selcuk for 13 hours doing absolutely nothing he said to make myself at home and feel free to relax in the reception or in the terrace cafe. He approached me on a regular basis asking if I would like some tea and offered to store my luggage behind the desk if I wanted to go for a walk. The service of Canberra Hotel could not have been any better.

Great location down a side street.
The restaurant was excellent and I enjoyed conversations with the staff.
Laundry service was a convenient feature.
Nice store and a great cafe on the main street closeby.

Room Tip: any room is probably good.

I recently stayed 3 nights at the Canberra Hotel and was very impressed all around. As long as you aren't expecting true luxury at this price, you should be impressed. My room was quite small (typical of Turkey), but it was spotlessly clean, and had a very comfortable bed plus nice amenities. There was a small balcony and another wall of mostly glass, so it's very sunny without the curtains closed.

The fellows who run it (brothers, I think) are very friendly and speak fine English, which is somewhat rare in Turkey at this price. The rooftop breakfast lounge is very nice, as is the standard Turkish buffet breakfast. I had dinner there one night and loved that as well, though it's important to note that they serve a mixed selection of Turkish salads and other dishes there rather than a full menu. Portions are very big for the price, and it is high quality too.

The location is another fine feature, as it's on a quiet road about 50 meters behind the main road to Ephesus, and basically across the street from Artemis and the Ephesus Museum on a nice pedestrian street. It's also next to a mosque, and when windows are open you'll hear the Calls To Prayer for sure.

Similar to another reviewer, I was given a free ride to the bus station upon checkout, even though it's only about 500 meters away.

Room Tip: Rooms facing away from the mosque should be quieter, though less scenic.

Checked into this hotel but then unfortunately broke my wrist and up in sleeping in hospital instead. However the owner was so kind and helpful, keeping in touch with the hospital, providing transport and looking after our luggage. We can't thank him enough. What we saw of the hotel looked very pleasant.

Stationed in Selcuk for the purposes of a day in Ephesus. The ancient site is within walking distance.
Greeted on arrival by the owner who could not be more helpful. His english was impeccable as he not only escorted us to our rooms but took us up to the rooftop dining area. From there he gave us a potted history of Ephesus from its Greek and Roman beginnings right up to modern day conservation efforts. He said he had a passion for archeology. It showed.

Rooms were adequate for the budget traveller. I ended up in a room with 2 small balconies near the top floor. TV is was on the blink but as we spent no time in the place, I didnt make an issue of it. Shower was old, plumbing wasnt the best, some flooding in the bathroom afterward, but nothing major and par for course I find.

The food on the roof top restaurant was excellent in the evenings. A nice varied selection of Turkish fare, all on display and cooked in front of you. The combination of the great views over Selcuk, with the Aegean in the distance and the call to prayer in the background made for a relaxing evening meal.

Great value, fast wifi, great balcony views.
Room is small, but standard in Turkey. The staff was very helpful and provide an Ephesus guidebook at check-in.
The breakfast was awesome!
You'll like Savash (owner), his English is good.
Selcuk is definitely the town to stay in if you are interested in the archeological offerings.
