This charming little gem is perfectly located, just up the hill from all amenities but still quiet and peaceful. An easy commute to/from Ephesus (hotel even provides a shuttle, but we had a car so didn't use it) but with it's own amazing small town character. Traditional Turkish decor at every turn, the rooms are very small but well equipped given the space limitations in this historic property. The rooftop restaurant is lovely - cozy and comfy with a fantastic mountain and town view, including an up close glimpse of St. John Basilica and 2 huge stork nests. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful - they taught us how to play backgammon "the Turkish way", prepared some really delicious meals for a very good price, and created signature drinks to our liking. There is a lovely little gift shop downstairs with authentic Turkish crafts and creations - a little pricey for our budget, so we regretfully left empty-handed. Hopefully, next time!
