The Bella Hotel is located opposite the ancient Church of Saint John in Selcuk and is convenient to the main town, and its excellent Saturday markets, without being too noisy.
We were allocated a small double room with view. The room and bathroom were quite cramped and could only just accommodated our two bags without blocking access to the door. However the appointments in the room including genuine Turkish tribal wall hangings and ceramics were a nice feature, as were the quite large display of other handicraft items in the hallways and stairwell.
The best feature of this hotel was the rooftop restaurant and breakfast area. It was appointed with kilims and rugs and was very comfortable for a meal or drink while overlooking the township and surrounds.
The breakfast food was simple with a focus upon lots of fruit, a little sesame bread and cheese plus the usual Turkish or Nescafe coffee (usually too weak). You could also order eggs as an omelet, boiled etc. The meals available at night had a wide selection of vegetarian and meat dishes, including fish, and could be purchased either a-la-carte or for a fixed 25 TL 3 course meal
The staff were very efficient and friendly, and the cleaning lady's hilarious towel animals (swans, elephants, snakes, butterflies etc) indicated a talent wishing to break out.
A very well run, clean hotel somewhat compromised by the very small rooms.
