“Excellent and friendly”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

The hotel was clean, comfortable and friendly. The food at dinner was delicious, and the view from the terrace is great. You can see the castle framed from the roof. The friendly owners gave great advice on where to go in the area. The location is also great.

Positives first
The location was great.
Rooms were sparsely furnished but comfortable .
Negatives
The bath tub was oddly shaped.
Carpets were dirty. They could have just had regular flooring throughout which is more practical in a hot place like selcuk.
As for service ....
One felt like being back in a hostel or under a very strict regimental rule .Starting with a list of instructions which were given during check in.

Breakfast .... Was horrible.
It was rationed out . The manner in which it was served one would prefer breakfast not be served at all.
One boiled egg, very weak coffee, 4 slices of cucumber and tomatoes, bread,6 pieces of cheese and olives.
With teenagers who have voracious appetite this is disastrous.
Every request made to the lady serving ( owners mother in law)
For milk for coffee or extra boiled egg was met with disapproval and the contempt and the response from the hostess actually made us cringe .

Do look for other options and use this as your last resort hotel.


Will not return again for sure .

Fabulous host who spoke excellent English and was always willing to help with any requests. He got us a great deal on a hot air balloon ride for our stay in Cappadocia and an excellent tour guide for Ephesus. Our room was clean and comfortable. Terrific shower! The upstairs dining area was lovely with exceptional views. Food was consistently delicious with excellent service. Perfect choice. You will not be disappointed!

We were two families spending 1 night there in the end of June 2013. An exceptionally friendly and service minded staff! A wonderful terrace restaurant serving excellent Turkish food. We used to pool a lot - the kids just loved it. Selcuk is the perfect base for exploring Ephesus and Hotel Nazar is a perfect and laid-back place to live.

Stayed 2 nights with our 3 young kids. Hotel is in a great location to explore selcuk which is not the prettiest of towns but is handy for Ephesus and is interesting for the hustle and bustle. Rooms are all spotless. Showers modern and work well. Mattresses are new and very comfy. View from roof terrace of castle over dinner and breakfast is glorious. Ilmet the owner speaks great English and could not be friendlier or more helpful. Only small complaint is that coffee is charged as extra at breakfast which feels wrong especially in turkey although the rest of the breakfast was good

We stayed at the Hotel Nazar for one night while in Turkey en route back to Istanbul. The owner was incredibly helpful and friendly which we very much appreciated. The rooms were excellent for the price, very clean, food delicious on the roof top patio, and the water pressure in the shower was amazing! It was the best shower we had while we were in Turkey, which was perfect timing after 3 weeks of traveling. It was very easy walking distance to downtown area and as well as the train station. Would highly recommend this place.

We chose this hotel because it served as a good base from which to visit Ephasus and other nearby places. We were very pleased with this place!
It's clean, fully equipped and in a great location (just 5 minutes walking from the train station)
It has a beautiful garden with a pool where you can sit and have a drink as well as rooftop terrace which provides a great view of the city. I recommend you take advantage of the home cooked meals they offer in the evenings. They are better than anything you'll eat in town and a great value as well.

By far the most pleasant aspect of staying at this hotel is the hospitality of the owners. Two former tour guides, they offered us great advice on where and how to travel and always went out of there way to provide a good service. Also, they speak french and english so communicating was not a problem. Thanks again for a pleasant stay and hope to see you again soon!
