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!
