We had an amazing stay in this hotel owned by 2 brothers Murat & Muharrem! Incredibly hospitable and accommodating. They are very attentive to us and we felt like we were their utmost priority and concern. We were blown away when Muharrem personally brought us to find moneychangers and ATMs. Breakfast was always met with warm smiles that brighten up our day. They had a good selection of cooked eggs and a wide array of home made jams. The photos don’t do justice to how beautiful the room is. The interiors were carefully curated by the brothers, and the toilet is just so artistically designed and spanking clean! We wanted to bring home the toilet with us XD. Every evening we were greeted by the most beautiful sunset that Ephesus has to offer. SIMPLY INCREDIBLE. Wish our stay was longer! Great job Murat and Muharrem!! We loved you guys!!!

So many good things and nothing bad to say at all. The rooms were as described - quaint and cozy. The food - my goodness, the menemen (eggs) were the best we had in our 12 day stay in Turkey. Service was really good - Okiye was friendly and oh so helpful. He called several tour agencies to check if there was space to go to Pamukkale and since there wasn't, helped us get a car so we could drive down ourselves. Location-wise it's hard to imagine a better placed hotel. Thank you for the great stay!

Everything! This property is perfect. Location is right where you want to be: a couple short blocks NE of the museum and bus terminal. The property and the room were both beautiful - the pictures are not exaggerating how amazing this place looks, the harmony, the craftsmanship, and attention to detail. Breakfast was great--wish we had more time to enjoy it and the property. !The owners were as friendly, personable, and helpful as you can hope for. As it was shoulder season, they were able to pick us up personally from the airport as well as drive us on our long day trip to Aphrodisias and Pamukkale.

As it's a new property there are a few very tiny details undoubtedly being worked through: perhaps remove the long skinny carpet inside the room entrance as it bunches up too easily. There is really nothing to complain about here!

I read a lot of reviews of hotels in kusadasi and Ephesus area before I decided to book this hotel. And boy did I made the right choice. Location of the hotel is fantastic for visiting Ephesus. Not only was the hotel beautifully designed, everything in the room was new and clean. The pool looks really nice but the weather was a tad cold for a dip.

Breakfast selection was good and the eggs was delicious. Because of the heavy rain, I also decided to just have dinner at the hotel. Everything was prefect.

Love that they provided enough complimentary bottled water in the room.

We stayed at the Akanthus for two nights and we were delighted. The hotel has been recently redone, so the rooms are very nice, clean, and comfortable. The owners and staff are very nice and helpful. The Turkish breakfast is very good. The Akanthus is a short walk to the Basilica of St. John and is a short drive to Ephesus. The town of Selcuk is quite nice and the center is a 10 minute walk from the Akanthus. If we return to Selcuk, we will most definitely stay at the Akanthus.
