“Basic but great”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This guesthouse far exceeded our expectation. Owner, Emre is a very nice man. Very professional and approachable.

Though we asked for triple sharing, we were given a 90 years old stone house with 2 big rooms and 2 toilets. There is even a kitchen. Main hall with sofa set for you to relax. It is basic house that comes with the modern comfort. Price was reasonable at €59 per night with breakfast. It is located at the peaceful residential area just about 10 minutes walk from town centre. Breakfast is simple and good.

Emre also gave us a lift to the train station when we checked out. There is a new extension of AA just 20 meters away which is going to open soon. Definitely, we will consider it when we come back.

Emre t told me he would be in charge of the new extension while his cousin would man the old AA. I am sure he will do very well in his new guesthouse.

I am sure he

A very friendly small hotel in a great location. The host,Emre, could not have been more gracious and helpful. Rooms were basic but very clean. There is a lovely courtyard and a charming breakfast area. The town, St. John's Basilica, and the remains of the Temple of Artemis are all a 5-minute walk from the hotel. As a single female travelling alone, I felt very safe there.

We spent three nights at Amazon Antique. Its a quaint small hotel, with cozy rooms that had orange, pomegranate and lemon greens all around. Emre and his cousin were gracious hosts and made our stay very comfortable. They picked us up from the train station, and gave us a ride to Ephesus the next day morning. Breakfast was good, but it started a little late (only after 8:00am). I would recommend this place to anyone who visits Selcuk

This is a lovely little hotel - a converted farmhouse with eight bedrooms. The rooms are basic but clean. We stayed in a room which opened onto the lovely terrace and garden - a beautiful suntrap in the morning. We were a little worried we might be disturbed by early risers but didnt hear anything and the 5am call to prayer from the mosque was only faint.
The breakfast is tasty with fruit and bread and cakes - and you can come whenever you like! No end to breakfast time.
Our host was lovely - friendly, helpful and considerate. He understood that we would be tired after our long journey and also offered to take us to the gate of Ephesus - which we gratefully accepted. He also gave us tips on good restaurants in Selcuk which were very good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that opens onto the garden.

Stayed here as part of a tour. The rooms are basic, but it's a cute place to stay. There is a really nice paved courtyard area and garden with some fruit trees & other flowering plants at this time. Breakfast is nice. The rooms are named after the God's which is a nice touch.

Excellent location near Efesos.
They drove us to the higher entrance and then we could walk down Efesus.
Clean and simple rooms. Typical and tasty breakfast.
Staff is very nice, helpful and speaks English.

This is a nice clean simple hotel that you get most bang for the buck.

Emre (owner) provided us free pickup from the train station and free drop-off to the upper gate of Ephesus. The accommodation is simple but clean. The breakfast is amazing with the fireplace. Emre was very nice and helpful in providing us tips in getting around the town. The hotel is nicely situated near to the city center (about 10-15min walk), and in the quiet area of the town.

We highly recommend this hotel for no frills travelers who seek most bang for the buck and a nice hotel owner.
