“Distinctive, tasteful lodge in a Greek mountain village with art and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

No two rooms or houses are identical, far from it in this lodge made up of several hillside homes perched atop this little Greek village. It's quite a climb from the town square so anyone with luggage would want to ride up in a car. Room prices vary by season, and in the off season the town will be pretty quiet, except for sunny weekends when it livens up. The lodge has been carefully set up in these houses and even has a steam bath for all to use. The rooms are chock full of curious, art work and books, making the place friendly and interesting.

Room Tip: Light sleepers might ask for an especially quiet room since noises can be heard easily in some rooms...

Stayed in the main house in the biggest room. Must have been off season as we were the only people at breakfast and dinner. The menu is limited but it seemed like we had our personal chef. The chef is very friendly and wonderful. Prices are like US entrees.
Loved the cosy feel of the house. Felt like being in a home. The gardens were beautiful even though it was off season.

Room Tip: Main house.

We stayed in Nisanyan this past summer in the Greek houses and it was paradise. We wish we could have stayed for a week! We were there 3 nights including one day off. The homes are beautiful, the food is exquisite, the service so kind and lovely. The grounds are delightful. The views, the plantings. Honestly, I can't describe it except it is totally peaceful the moment you arrive the courtyard and sit by the fountain with peach nectar to refresh you. We met a couple by the pool who cancelled the rest of their trip to stay there. We had dinner in the tower for our son's birthday and it was magic, we watched peacocks on the roof below dance and prance for a half hour, the food was amazing and the views and sunset unbeatable. We could hear the Call to Prayer (magical) drifting up from the town below. This was a true highlight of an amazing 3 week trip to Turkey this summer. The restaurant is amazing.

Room Tip: We loved the Greek houses but it is a bit of a walk to the main house. As long as you are mobile, an...

Overall, we felt somewhat disappointed by the hotel which just felt like it had seen better days. We had booked two cottages and instead got moved to one of the houses (apparently the heating had failed in the cottages - the problem was that (in contrast to some of the other reviews on here) no-one we met for the first 24 hours spoke much English so it proved hard to ascertain what the issue was). The house was quirky and in its own way quite fun, but two of the beds really weren't big enough for teenagers let alone anyone full grown adults and it was very dark - not as good as the more expensive cottages which we had booked.

The food was good, substantial home cooking. Breakfast fine though a it odd - eggs for two meant two eggs in a little frying pan which you had to separate for yourself without somehow burning your hand on the pan, for example, and it was a struggle to get fruit juice. The one person who did speak English turned up at dinner to complain about us suggesting they had downgraded our rooms without telling us and then disappeared pretty quickly again.

And, not their fault, but if you are down the hillside (again, probably better in the cottages), the incessant barking of the stray dogs literally did not stop all night and is a major negative.

Nisayan House is a beautiful, rustic bed and breakfast located high in the hills of charming Sirince. It is a challenging drive to get up there if you are not used to Turkish driving, as there are steep hills, narrow, dirt roads and sharp turns.

The entrance to the hotel area is a tiny, cobblestone parking lot, which is only fits two or three cars comfortably. When we first entered the hotel, we thought it looked like a cute little cottage out of a fairytale. It is very authentically Turkish with beautiful artwork and quirky decor throughout the building. The owner was very friendly and spoke perfect English, which was nice. Check in was quick and easy and we were shown to our room, which was on the top floor of the main building. Unfortunately, we got the smallest room in the entire building, and it was SMALL. There was a double bed, two night tables, and an armoir, and that literally filled the entire room. We had to take turns opening our suitcases as there was no space. I have to wonder why they would choose this room for a honeymooning couple that booked almost 6 months in advance. However, the view from our room was breathtaking-- a perfect view of the mountains and the little town of Sirince.

The bed was a little hard, but not too bad and the sheets were clean. The bathroom was good with a large shower and good ammenties. The best part of this hotel was the FANTASTIC food. We chose to have dinner at the hotel since we were too scared to drive down to Selcuk at night (there's no lights anywhere on the windy road down) and we were not disappointed at all. The dinner was completely authentic Turkish food, homemade in the kitchen. The servers did not understand very much English, which was not a problem as they still managed to serve us well. We again tried the food during breakfast the next morning and it was fabulous yet again. They made fresh eggs and had a nice assortment of other items. Breakfast is complimentary but dinner is an additional charge.

Overall, I think this is a great choice for a honeymooning couple like us, as it's very romantic but yet close enough to sightseeing in Ephesus, etc. I would recommend going on their website to choose a room ahead of time before booking, because you won't want to end up with the room we had. Also, be advised that the drive up is not an easy one, so if you are a nervous driver, I wouldn't recommend it.

Room Tip: Avoid the smallest room in the main hotel (Room 4) you will be tripping over your spouse your whole...

to make this an unvbelievable and 5 star hotel experience are better liners and towels; bottled water and kleenex in rooms; and for those rooms without a closet an amororie to hang clothes. The views and setting are spectular and many of the rooms great. breakfasts are first class and the dining room serves a high quality dinner

Room Tip: ask for large room with closet

Sirince has been built up and more touristy since the Nisanyan House opened, but the hotel has maintained a lovely rustic charm. Donkeys bray and roosters crow from nearby pens. The hotel is a collection of old houses repurposed into guest rooms and every room is different. Our group of 5 couples had the smallest and the largest rooms in the hotel. The smallest room is too tiny and should be avoided. There is not even room to lay out two suitcases. The largest room was half the top floor of a converted farmhouse. The furniture in the rooms is mismatched and funky, but adds to the charm. Be sure to check the bedding, I overheard another guest whose bed was missing sheets, as was ours.
The hotel has two major areas, the tower/cottages section and the main hotel building. They are connected by a long, flagstone walkway that is quite uneven. The restaurant is in the main building and has a delightful view of Sirince below and the hills across the valley. Oddly, breakfast varies dramatically depending on where your room is located. Those of us staying near the tower were treated to a marvelous breakfast cooked to order with much variety. The rest of us eating in the main hotel restaurant had a limited selection of cold food accompanied by terrible service.
This hotel was a lot of fun.

Room Tip: Avoid the 2 smallest rooms in the hotel. They really are tiny.
