“Fantastic experience in Selcuk!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

The hotel was clean and all amenities was provided such as hair dryer, slippers, drinking water. As for the shower, the heater didn't work as much as I thought it will be. First it was super cold then it turned scorching hot. I spent 10 minutes every time just to adjust the tap! I got really annoyed! But overall, the room was great, we had a great view overlooking the town and a castle. Storks were flying just outside our window! Selcuk train station is just 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The owner was very helpful and assisted us in all our tour needs.

Second time here and found it to be just as enjoyable as the first. Not a luxury hotel, but a clean, convenient and very friendly hotel at a great price. Breakfast was awesome. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. Arranged a great airport transport with a stop at the Izmir seaside for a nice relaxing afternoon before flight (at a great price too!) Less than 5 min. walk from train station if you arrive that way. I would definitely recommend the Urkmez Hotel for your stay in Selcuk or Ephesus or the region.

Lovely clean and fresh double room overlooking the bustling old quarter. Ensuite shower bathroom - good towels and toiletries. Staff friendly and helpful. Great breakfast with views across the city to the mountains.
Would stay again - very good value.
Wen to the recommended small restaurant - quality food and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Look for a room with a balcony - the balcony small but lots to see in the busy streets below.

Hotel was clean and all amenities was provided. Unfortunately, the heater is a little bit cold. Hot water was also an issue-we had to toggle the water a lot and the temperature changes drastically during shower. Not a fun experience on winter days!

This is a boutique and a very nice hotel with very friendly and caring Turkish family. Must thank the owner and his ‘Hercules’ brother for all the help when we visited them this year. I had fallen sick and had fever and flu with all the heat and walking around and the owner took us to a doctor and helped with medicines as well. The hotel owners and the staff ranks at the very top of hospitality that I have ever seen and will surely bring a smile to your face with every interaction!

The hotel is also in the middle of the lovely little Selchuk town, with all the market and eating places right next door and very close to the bus station.

Thanks for making our stay comfortable!

We stayed at Urkmez Hotel for 3 nights and had a great stay.

Pros:
- Great Customer Service. From start to finish, we were taken care of with great hospitality. Jimmy was very welcoming and helped us out a lot.
- On check out day, the early breakfast was not ready, so Jimmy took us to a nearby bakery to buy us breakfast and walked us to the train station, very nice gesture.
- Location is great. Close to the train station and also most of the restaurants and shops.
- Breakfast was decent, with good views from the rooftop
- Rooms were spacious

Cons:
- Wifi did not work in the room
- Other than Jimmy, no-one else at the reception speaks English, which was a bit inconvenient
- Bathroom needs some updating, cleaning
- A bit noisy at night, ear-plugs !!

Overall we had a good experience and would recommend staying at Urkmez.

Room Tip: Highly recommend for the Customer service.

This quaint family run hotel was perfect for my quick stay to see Ephesus. They offered to pick me up from my bus drop off and drive me there the next morning as well. Staff was very easy going and friendly, always willing to help and answer questions.
Breakfast was great, rooms were clean. Would definitely recommend this place.
