I stayed for two nights in March 2019. The host made me feel very welcome, spoke excellent English, and assisted the bus driver negotiating the cobbled streets to collect my luggage late at night and then offered me a couple of free glasses of homemade wine, cheeses and olives

Not easy to find , the Nilya is situated roughly 500 metres uphill from Ephesus Museum. We were actually the only guests staying but we were greeted with a hot drink and a welcoming chat by our host, and stunned by the beautiful decor and location with it's fabulous panoramic

I agree - its a bit far to with luggage, and there was a lot of road work making it rough going to the station when we were there in October. But the staff at the Nilya were fabulous, and happily drove us to the station. Good luck with the train to the airport - its an experience!

Where did you end up eating? thanks
We ended up eating dinner at Hotel Bella's rooftop restaurant which is convenient and a decent meal. Hotel Bella is the sister hotel to Hotel Nilya and a very quick walk. Selcuk is pretty small and you can easily walk around and find yourself dining options in the area.
