“Great Hotel Alternative”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

As in many European and Asian countries, it can be difficult to find a hotel in Turkey, which can accommodate a family of four in one room. If you can, you are often crowded into tight quarters. Ephesus Suites is a great alternative to a standard hotel, even if you are less than four. For about the same price, you get a spacious, nicely furnished suite, tucked away on a quiet street.

This is a fairly new place, started by the same family, which runs the Urkmez Hotel in the center of town. There are only 4 units, so it has a very exclusive, private feel. The guest units are separated from a guest lounge building by a very quaint, enclosed courtyard, where breakfast is served in the warmer months. The breakfast was fresh and delicious with breads, cheese, fruits, eggs, and even cereals for the westerners.

The family hospitatlity was terrific as well. On our last day, they prepared a special early breakfast for us, as we had to catch a morning flight from Izmir. Our son was ill, so they drove us to the shuttle stop, to make sure didn't miss it, and so he didn't have to walk. Definitely a good find!

To be honest, we didn't stay long enough in the room to review much although we booked for 3 days 2 nites. We reached Izmir airport at night and was promptly picked up by the owner Mr. Cüynet. Initially we thought we had miscommunicated as there was nobody waiting for us IN the airport but he was waiting for us just outside of the airport. It is a lucky thing that we are all small size people as the Citroen 5 seater minivan used was to pick us up was a bit too small for the 6 of us and the luggages but anyway we managed to squeeze everybody in.

Anyway, it was like 9 or was it 10 pm when we reached Selcuk but all of Mr. Cüynet's sons were waiting for us to handle our luggages up to our room on the first floor...no waiting for registration and all. The room looks exactly like the pictures advertised in the website. It was very very clean and nice but with my request (which was graciously granted by owner) to put in the extra bed, the room became a bit crowded. The sofa bed which is to fit in my two boys is rather small and would be more fitting for 2 children under 12 years rather than 2 teenagers..but since it is a holiday they didn't mind at all...but I would not recommend a repeat experience of trying to fit in 5 people ie 2 adults and 3 teenagers in this room should you decide to spent more time in the room. Facilities in the room for example glass, cups etc is very minimal and catered for only 2 people.

Breakfast is a quaint selection of homemade food ..very tasty..nice as it is straight from the oven. The owners and family are very nice and polite people...but we didn't meet with them much as we booked a tour to Ephesus and surroundings including Sirince Village..We then decided to have a short trip to Pammukale very early the next morning hence we decided to check out very early the morning.

As the suites is practically like a home away from home concept, there is no 24/7 service by the owner but you will be able to contact them should you need anything from them evening onwards. We managed to get one of the family members who manages the restaurant to call owner to enable us to pay early for us to check out early the next morning. We managed to do the payment that night..and they did ask us whether we would want to have an earlier breakfast before we go off. How nice....

Anyway, that was our short experience here. To sum up, it is a very homely place and very very clean...Just a small hassle should you need services outside of the normal operation hours but still a nice experience..

Cuneyt, Jimy and family go above and beyond to make guests comfortable and welcome in their newest B&B. My family totally enjoyed our stay. Fabulous breakfast. Convenient suite for family of 4 to share. Would enjoy staying here again.

Mr. Cüynet runs a very nice familly hotel of only 4 rooms.

The hotel is located at a walking distance from the Temple of Artemis and the St. John's Basilica, and near the site of Ephesus.

The rooms are spacious, surgically clean, however the restrooms are kind of small. They serve a nice breakfast. It's a very good option to avoid staying at the bustling town of Kushadasi.

Despite all these good reviews, the private tours they offered us were very expensive, specially the one to Ephesus (it's better to hire a car and go by yourself).

The thing I remember most about Ephesus Suites was the service. We arrived in Selcuk fairly late, by train. We were looking at a map, trying to figure out how to walk to the hotel, when a guy asked us if we needed help. We told him where we were going, and it turns out he was the owner! He was at the train station to pick up some other guests who were arriving, but he offered to drive us back to the hotel as well. He was incredibly helpful and hospitable. When we were checking out, he even offered to hold onto our bags and then transfer them for us to their sister hotel, since we were catching a bus near there later in the day. I've never stayed at a hotel that offers such top-quality service for their guests! As for the hotel itself, the location is fine; the room was nice and clean.

Excellent hotel. transfer impeccable, spacious, clean and comfortable. extraordinary care. a perfect choice for anyone who wants to know the area differently. however, we find the very expensive private tours given by the hotel. for services rendered, these private tours might have cost less.

At first would like to say that this is not a bad BnB. Their rooms are nice and they have a breakfast that taste really good. Unfortunately they dont have a 24 hours reception, so when you arrive they give you a front door key.
In our last day we should have to take a bus at the station (15 minutes walking) at 7:30, so we paid one day before as nobody would be there in the morning. When we paid, we asked the owner if he have a taxi number that we can arrange the pickup in the morning, because the hotel is 15 minute walking, but is a stone street, so you cannot walk with rolling luggage.
The owner told us that he would take us to the bus station and would ask the crew to prepare a small take away breakfast for us. We felt very happy with this service.
But in the next day, the owner forgot us ! and it cames 7:00, 7:10 an nothing, so we decided to drag the luggage on the sone street as we didnt manage a previous reservation with a taxi and we did not have any phone, neither the reception was open. when we draged the luggage 100 mts on the street, we saw thw housekeeper arriving i bicicle, so we asked her with mimic as she doesnt speak english, that we would miss the bus.
She managed to arrange us a old sir with a car that drove us to the bus station, and we didnt miss the bus for 10 seconds !
I think that some mistakes are unforgettable for a hotel owner. Forgetting the guest is one of them.
