We just stayed here 4 nights. I agree with earlier reviews that staff was outstanding; we had a lovely and filling breakfast; it is just a short walk to the center of town; the appointments are lovely (check out their website pictures). We actually walked to Ephesus for our self- guided walking tour however we are seasoned walkers. We began our tour from the lower gate toward the upper gate thereby bucking the crowds who began the opposite way. Sure there are dogs barking, roosters crowing, an occasional baby crying in the neighborhood at night but that's Selcuk and Turkey unless you stay in mega sized resort or grand hotel. They exist in nearby Kusadasi
Our hotel was just below the Citadel, a short walk to the ruins of St John's Church (where his tomb is reputed to be), and near the ruins of the Artemis Temple. We took the local bus to Sirince, an Ancient Greek village, also not to be missed. There are lots of good restaurants in town especially Tat and The Ancient House.
Stay at the St John's if your are a traveler and over in Kusadasi if you are a tourist. We took the train straight to the Izmir Airport for 3 TL (less than an hour ride) and the owner drove us to the Selcuk train station.
