We stayed here two nights, and our primary purpose was to visit Ephesus. We found the hotel clean, comfortable, cozy. I agree with others that the dinners on the rooftop are good (the wine is nice) and the hospitality is great. Our room was on the ground floor and was not noisy - it was very comfortable. The lobby is a comfy area in which to lounge. Wifi did work in my room 'most of the time,' certainly for as long as I had time for and for as much as I needed.

Room Tip: It's a nice place to stay for a night or two while seeing Ephesus. I have no complaints and found the hotel to be very efficient. I would certainly stay there again!

We had 2 nights at Rebetika and it was perfect. It is a quiet little hotel in a nice corner of town, just across from the St. John Church, and walking distance to everything. The rooftop deck, where you have breakfast, also has an incredible menu for dinner. It is a very laid back family run place, and the 2 brothers run the place, and you get to know them and their families (one has an adorable son). You can sit out and watch the sun set, while having an incredibly prepared fresh fish meal and enjoying a glass of wine. It truly is as relaxing as it sounds ;)

I would highly recommend this hotel.

Family run. It's like living in a small village. On the "Artemis" side of Selcuk next door to the beautiful and tranquil mosque. Not luxurious but comfortable. A walk to town either round by the temple of Artemis or up the hill past the Basilica of John the evangelist. Food at the hotel is simple but satisfying--service is relaxed and extremely friendly. Nice people watching spot, (though there's not a lot of people). The rooftop living space is really nice. Don't expect too much, relax, slow down and your stay will be really rewarding.

Our travel agent insisted on this hotel. Matter of fact he charged us an extra 10Euro for the privilege. We saw the reviews on tripadvisor and agreed. Our own review is mixed.

Our hotel included airport transfers from Izmir. We were greeted at the airport by a friendly pleasant person who then brought us to Selcuk in what seemed his private car. When we reached the hotel, he showed us to our rooms and around the hotel. Then asked us what we'ed like to have for dinner and proceeded to cook our fish! Rebetika is basically a 20 room B&B owned and managed by two brothers.

The views from there were good and lot of the attractions were walking distance. (though not Efes) Rooms and bathrooms were really basic and sparse. A bit uncomfortable I thought. Though it had a TV and a cable box, neither worked. The complimentary internet in the room worked one night and not the other. (when informed about it the answer was, oh that doesn't always work). They did have a computer in the "lobby" where one could access the Net and a TV with international channels.

The complimentary breakfast was really really basic. Cereal, boiled egg, cheese, and some fruit. The fish from the first night was good. Initially we were charged 31 Euro for two but later on check-out we were told that they made a mistake and the meal was actually 55 Euro!

On the day we were to leave out transfer to the airport at 3. So we requested a late check-out. Not only we were told that isn't possible but told to vacate our rooms at 8 in the morning. It seems it was Sunday and the maid had to clean the rooms and leave early. Though we did still see her at 3 pm when we left!

Over all the brothers were friendly. But the experience was not. At the rates they charged it was not a good deal at all.

We will advice other travelers not to stay at Selcuk at all. But rather the nearby and more scenic Sirince Village. It's just 10 minutes more from Selcuk and the attractions of the town will be covered by the tours anyway!

We arrived late evening after a full day tour of Pammukale and Hyerapolis. We were met by the owner of the hotel, Ibrahim Cerci. He warmly greeted us and invited us to go to the rooftop terrace and we were offered a free tea and snack as a welcome gesture. Ibrahim enthusiastically explained the historical sites ( Isa Bey Mosque, The Basilica of Saint John and The Temple of Artemis ) in the surrounding area of Hotel Rebetica while we enjoyed our tea. Our 17 year old son was already typing on his Mac as the terrace has wifi faclity. The sun was setting and the almost 360 degrees view on the terrace was spectacular with the landscape smothered in golden hue.

Our triple room was in the ground floor, clean, sufficiently furnished and equipped with a small LCD TV and a well maintained bathroom.

We had dinner at the rooftop terrace and Ali Baba the chef is a friendly and a good cook. We were too tired to extend our stay after dinner so we didn't get a chance to try out the 'harem pad' a very cosy area furbished with Turkish cushions and carpets at one corner of the terrace. We also had our breakfast the next morning at the same terrace and the morning sun gave it a different, pleasant experience.

We checked out early for a tour of the Ephesus and were allowed to leave our luggages behind at the hotel till end of the day. We came back
in the evening to fetch our luggages and was invited by Ibrahim to also freshen up before we board the overnight bus back to Istanbul.

The Rebetica Hotel is small, intimate, managed with a family atmosphere. You would not be alone, even if you are alone because you would feel like you are a part of The Rebetica's family. The hotel is a joyful stroll away from the town's centre and close to historical sites, many hotels, restaurants and shops.

Ibrahim, thank you for being there. We highly appreciate your kind hospitality and generosity. You can count on us if we come back to Selcuk. Our regards to the rest of the team.
