Hotel is beautiful, wrapped up in ivy and a lovely rooftop terrace overlooking the St John's Basilica, roman aquaduct and stork nests. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and clean, although is a bit small. There's almost no room to unpack (we stayed in a twin room, no balcony), which is okay for a day or two, but would get a bit too cramped for anything longer.
The hotel's set dinner (2 sides, soup, main & dessert for 25TYR) is probably the best meal you'd get in town for that price. Very worth it and thoroughly delicious. The hotel also organises free drop off and pick up to Ephesus if you want to do a self-guided tour (but a word of warning, the audio guide is not great for Ephesus so would actually recommend going for a tour or getting a guide if you're not very familiar with the history), and very reasonably charged drop off to St Mary's house (10TYR/person instead of 60TYR by taxi). Breakfast is classic Turkish breakfast and good. Location is also great, 5 mins walk downhill to centre of town, 10 to train station. Would definitely recommend this place.
