The Nilya is a sparkling clean, two story hotel located in Selcuk, only minutes from Ephesus. It is set in a lovely little garden, has beautiful carved wood furniture and beams. The owners (who also own the Hotel Bella) are quite accommodating, especially by driving you to Ephesus, dropping you off at the top of the hill, and picking you up at an established time at the bottom of the hill--the other end of Ephesus. We were extremely appreciative of this gesture.
I selected Hotel Nilya because of the many good reviews on Tripadvisor. Because of the mention of small rooms, I booked the suite because in the small rooms the beds are almost wall to wall. The Nilya is not a bad hotel, but there are some problems that could easily be remedied. There were no luggage racks (and in the suite there was plenty of room for these) so we had to put our cases on the love seat in the sitting room, thus-- no available seating. The bathroom was dimly lit with the mirror hung so high I could only see my eyes. The balcony just outside the room door,offered the possibility of a fantastic view, but the stems of untrimmed bushes obstructed it.. Futhermore, it is extremely difficult to find, because of lack of signage --a problem throughout Turkey. Finally, if you choose to take your meals at the sister Hotel Bella--which is encouraged--one has to walk up a very steep hill, followed by three flights of stairs to the Bella's rooftop restaurant. Still, the Nilya and the Bella are probably the best Selcuk has to offer. .
