“Beautiful Pension with Staff like Family”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

This pension is wonderful. I stayed here for three weeks, and I will still be sad to leave. The people here feel like my family. Everybody who stays here wishes they had come here at the beginning of their trip so they could have stayed longer. Emre, who manages the pension speaks very good English and is incredibly helpful and friendly. Turgot is an amazing cook -- it's difficult to stop eating his food! He makes the best chai in town. The courtyard, where the dining area is located, is gorgeous. The rooms are very nice -- all have air conditioning and working hot water. Emre did the plumbing himself, so the hot water comes much faster than in other hotels in the area. Next time I'm in Selçuk, Amazon Antique is the only place I would stay in.

This hotel was exactly what I needed after bustling and loud Istanbul. It was so cozy, quiet and comfortable that I really wished to scratch my travel itinerary and stay an extra night. Location was perfect - in the center of the historic part of Selcuk (cool narrow stoned streets and in a very close proximity to Basilica of St. John and Isa Bey Mosque), but still walking distance (5-10min) from the busier part of the down where all the restaurants and stores are.
Not to mention that Ephesus was a 5 minute drive.

The place is an old farmhouse converted into a small hotel (not sure, but defiantly less than 10 rooms) with a wonderful courtyard. The local wines at the bar that the owner had personally selected were amazing and perfect for enjoyment in the courtyard under a starry Turkish sky. I wish I would have had dinner there, the menu sounded good and good price.

The owner was nice, very helpful and spoke good English. Rooms were clean and shower had hot water.

Now few negatives....the rooms we had did not have double beds and it might be a problem for people on their honeymoon. The bathroom was very poorly lit.

Overall a great hotel if you are looking for something personable and unique in a good price range.
