Hotel Kalehan
Ranked #13 of 34 Hotels in Selcuk
Reviewed 9 June 2013

We had a very welcome stay at the Kalehan Hotel. The service was excellent and the artifacts presented throughout the hotel are a wonderful collection of Turkish antiquities. Selcuk is a great city and the hotel easy walking distance from the city centre. We had a wonderful evening discovering the well tuned piano in the restaurant and then to be accompanied by the hotel manager on his clarinet! Selcuk a special place and the Kalehan a great retreat. Many thanks

The Hotel was full of with antique objects and they kept the old style of building.People was smiley and breakfast was good.I hope to stay here again maybe the Summer time too,because they have nice
pool with castle view and close to the cultural places..

Dear our valued Guest BaharGülOzen,

We thank you very much for your kind reviews here. It was very nice to have your reviews regarding your stay in winter season. We hope to welcome you again in summer time as you pointed out already. We believe you will enjoy your stay much more next time by having your drink by the pool and experiencing the refreshing atmosphere of rose garden.

Our party of 4 (2 couples) spent 2 nights at Kalehan around tours of the area landmarks. The pool and garden were lovely to come to and relax after hot days of walking around. The staff was gracious and welcoming, especially Mehmet, the head waiter. He kept us supplied with olive oil that he himself makes from his property, and told us stories of the area around. The rooms were clean and comfortable, though not recently updated. For the price, it is an excellent value, however. The restaurant is reasonably priced and delicious for lunch and dinner, we ate two meals therein. The location is perfect as well, on the edge of Selçuk, walking distance to shops and restaurants, 10 minute drive from Ephesus, 15 minute drive from the village of Şirince, but well removed from the bland and overpopulated tourist trap that is Kuşadası.

May 1 & 18, 2013 - We planned to stay in the hotel for one night but found it so pleasant and easy to access many of the popular sights that we stayed two nights. The staff was friendly and helpful, exceeding our expectations. This hotel is very comfortable; nice big rooms; service-oriented staff; beautiful gardens; turtles, cats and dogs all added to a pleasant stay. We would definitely come back again!

We did not stay at this hotel but as a group of 30 people, we had lunch. The place seems to be a preferable spot for lunch as when we were there, there were 2 other groups, one from Far East and the other from US, they were not staying at the hotel either but were there for lunch only. I can easily say that the best meals we had during our 4 day stay at Ionia were here. We had a very rich set menu, starting with soup and salad, continuing with both cold and hot appetizers and meat as main course. The dessert and fruits were served as open buffet. Though the place was crowded and there were few waiters, the service was flawless. I can recommend this place for a decent lunch.

Dear our valued Guest,

Thank you very much for your reviews of our lunch service that you had recently. This was very nice for us to see a review of lunch instead of accommodation. Your experience also proves that the meals are distinctive for our cuisine. We are indeed very glad for this sharing. We hope to welcome you next time for accommodation as well.

Best regards,

I stayed at Hotel Kalehan for one night in May 2013. The hotel is located on the main thoroughfare in Selcuk, right next to a gas station. Sights such as St. John's Basilica, Isa Bey Mosque, and the Grand Fortress are 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel. You can actually also walk to the Ephesus Museum (unfortunately closed during my visit). In addition to being located close to tourist sites, there are several museums and shops closer to the train station. Staff were very friendly and gave us some good information on the surrounding area. The hotel is made of two or three buildings - one houses reception and the dining area and the other two house rooms. We were lucky and stayed in the Ephesus room. It was very nice and well decorated; however, the location close to a major road meant there were some noise issues. Additionally, we could hear people banging around several times during the evening. I’m not quite sure if that was due to noisy guests or the wooden and stone floors.

Dear our valued Guest,

We would like you to have a better stay in our hotel but since the public surroundings and neighborhood are essential issues around us we can not prevent them. It seems the noise you had was from these mediums. We are glad you did not experience the wedding ceremony which is much noisier than any others. We thank you very much for your sharings here. Hope to welcome you at another time in our hotel.

Very good hotel. Just off the main road and the near main attractions in the area. Baby turtles hanging around the garden that sort of thing.... Room was fantastic and staff were very helpful. Recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool
