When we got to the town of Selcuk, we were a little skeptical; we had imagined a quaint little village, and the downtown area that you enter just off the highway isn't exactly picturesque. But by the time we reached Hotel Nilya, we were reassured--the hotel has the exact quaint village feeling that we were anticipating and hoping for. The hotel itself is beautiful; its main feature is a gorgeous little courtyard where we spent a ton of time, sitting at the tables, reading our books, smoking their nargile. Our room was also lovely; clean and well-apportioned and a brand new bathroom (great shower). Overall, there wasn't much to see in Selcuk, but the ruins at Ephesus were interesting, and there are two beaches within driving distance--Pamucak and Voncakoy--that are both worth visiting. Regardless, there is no better place to stay in Selcuk than Hotel Nilya, hands down.
