“In Selcuk this the place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

Stayed for 1 night in early March. Everything and everyone at this hotel was fantastic. The staff (Jimmy & Alex) where tremendous host. The accommodations were clean well managed and comfortable. If your in the market for some fine Turkish carpets then do yourself a favor and talk to Jimmy. He is very knowledgable and very fair in his pricing. You will not be disappointed.
Overall, Selcuk is a beautiful little town and an excellent place to stay while exploring Efes.

I stayed here for 24 hours in later January, 2012. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the owner Jimmy is a really cool guy, and it was a clean, comfortable place to stay. Definitely a place where you can trust their prices, advice, travel guidance/services, etc. The location near the bus station is also great - I arrived somewhat late but having called ahead they were expecting me, and it was great to walk just a few hundred yards after arriving. My room was clean and well-kept.

Guessing it is awesome in the summer - the outdoor sitting area is nice, it is right downtown, there is a pool nearby.

Overall a great place with a good atmosphere and I would definitely recommend it to friends.

Stayed for two nights on 7th Dec. and received a warm welcome and a pleasant surprise when we were upgraded to a bigger room at no extra charge. Ibrahim and Jimmy were excellent hosts who are very warm and congenial. We even bought a carpet from Jimmy at a very good price and he is very well versed in carpet knowledge.

Overall, the stay was a very pleasant with very hospitable and lovely hosts.

While visiting a friend in Istanbul recently, I decided to take a last-minute trip to Selcuk/Ephesus via bus. After a long, overnight bus, I found Jimmy's Place easily, a 3-minute walk from the bus station. I was greeting kindly and advised there was a tour departing soon, if I cared to join. I quickly threw my luggage in the room and was whisked away to see the ruins of Ephesus, house of the Virgin Mary, and the Temple of Artemis (one of 7 Ancient Wonders). What an incredible day! Make sure you also check out St. John's Church (walking distance) as well. The tour had a carpet/leather sales stop so tell your group to say "no" when they ask if interested (hotel didn't run tour, just recommended it). At Jimmy's the rooms were simple but comfortable. Not noisy at all, and the showers were updated with hot water. They have an amazing collection of tourist guides, historical documents, and informative resources and free computer terminal in the lobby. They even whipped me up some local cuisine despite being the only guest in the lobby/restaurant area. The fireplace is nice in colder months, and they also have a nice deck out front. You are very close to restaurants, bank ATMs, pharmacy, and other necessities, and the free breakfast was more than I expected - probably 10-12 items to enjoy with your Turkish tea or coffee. Great staff, location, owner, and food - what more do you need? They made the long journey to and from there bearable, and I highly recommend Ephesus as a side, albeit long, trip from Istanbul (about 9 hrs. by bus, look into flights which may be priced similarly, depending on season). If you are into history, religious pilgrimages, or seeing the ancient wonders, this is a great place to visit and stay. Rhodes/Bodrum is not too far by car/train if you want to see another one of the ancient ruins in the same trip!

I and my friends stayed here for 2 nights in a triple room. The room was clean and comfortable. This hotel is well located, really close to the bus station, train station, and the city center. Ephesus museum and other historical sites are reachable just within a walking distance.

The bathroom was nice, and surprisingly very spacious! Hot water is available, with a bathtub inside, which was really helpful to get relaxed after some excursions to the surrounding cities. This hotel would be a good place to stay if you are planning to go around Selcuk, Ephesus, Kusadasi, even we stayed here one more night after we visited Pamukkale limestone terrace.

This hotel has a small cafe, but since we were really curious about local foods that the places we stay have, we tried Gozleme in the nearby city center. However, the breakfast in the hotel was nice, a typical of Turkish breakfast (Kahvalti). The staffs were nice and helpful. I would confidently recommend this hotel!

We stayed at Jimmy's Place, which is a hotel near the famous Ephesus ruins, at short notice as we backpacked around the area. The welcome and service was genuine, without being a sales exercise. Jimmy and his wife, with staff, we're genuine, not pushy, and pleased to help; they also possess a good grasp of the English language. Clean and welcoming rooms, decorated in the local style, with a restaurant (if you choose to eat there) that is great. Even forgetting to return my key was not a big issue, which was posted back from the UK.

Adem, Jimmy's brother, is fabulous. He helped me plan a trip to Cappadocia and some day trips and was very nice and helpful. All the staff was wonderful and quite hospitable. The hotel is simple and very clean in a great location. You can walk there from the bus and it is only a few blocks from the center of town which is quite lovely with restaurants under the aquaduct. I loved Selcuk because it was a real town with real families and everyday Turkish life. The food was great and its locaiton to Ephesus can't be beat.
