Saint John was one of our favourite hotels on a recent visit to Turkey. It is located close to the town centre (train station, restaurants, tour buses) and a short walking distance from some of the important sites, including the museum (closed for renovation when we were there) and St John's Basilica (a walk of about 10 minutes or so). Ephesus is a short bus trip away. We walked to the hotel from the train station in about 20 minutes. The hotel is attractive and comfortable. The main room was a tad small but nicely appointed and quiet; it looked onto a courtyard and swimming pool. The curtains did not block out a lot of light, but this is a minor gripe. Service was excellent and very friendly, and breakfast offered a wide range of good quality food. Some reviewers have commented on the not-so-affluent neighbourhood with its active street life during the day (e.g. kids playing soccer on the road); however, we found it quite appealing, as people were friendly and we never felt uneasy. I strongly recommend this hotel and would happily stay there again.
