“Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our 10 day tour of Turkey. We had a rental car, and were able to park on the street directly across from the hotel. The interior of the hotel, especially the rooms and roof terrace, have absolutely gorgeous woodwork and handpainted tiles (which I assume came from the shop attached to the hotel). The hotel offered to shuttle us to the ruins at Ephesus for free, but we had already arranged to be picked up at the hotel by a guide. The hotel is across the street from the Basilica of St. John and right down the street from the Isa Bey Mosque as well. Overall, we were very pleased with the hotel, and would definitely recommend it to fellow travelers.

Having visited Ephesus over. 26 years ago my wife and I decided to re visit to see the changes and decided to stay for 2 nights at Bella in Selcuk on friends recommendation. We were not disappointed and Erdal and Nezmi and their staff we perfect hosts. As mentioned by other guests, the owners arrange free transfers to Ephesus and great advice on other locations. Roof top restaurant is great providing a very nice breakfast, all day tea and coffee and very reasonably priced dinners. I cannot agree with other guests about the high pressure carpet etc selling. This did not happen and are whole stay was very pleasant. Make sure you book a room with 'stork nest views'

Very welcoming frienly staff, who also arrange free shuttles to the Ephesus archeological site to suit your preferences.

Especially nice is the rooftop terrance restuarant bar, which is also where breakfast is served. The full set dinner menu is excellent value.

Room Tip: Best rooms on the second floor.

Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Hotel Bella. You provided us the perfect base to explore Selcuk and surrounding areas. We didn't want to leave in the end! A real highlight of the trip.

The food provided on the terrace was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable, friendly and warm space that enabled us to access all sights with ease. We would highly recommend Hotel Bella to all travellers looking for a home away from home.

I spent the weekend in Selcuk at Hotel Bella. The staff is wonderful and the location could not be better. There's an amazing shop attached to the hotel, and Nazmi (the owner) is quite the salesman without pushing or pressure. He sold me a unique tribal carpet that I will love forever and so will my child and her children. The storks alone are worth the reasonable room price, and the restaurant serves up delicious breakfasts. The hotel provides a shuttle to Ephesus proper, which is amazing and worth seeing for any one interested in the past, the ruins, the Romans, or any other reason I can think of to visit this extraordinary and special little town.

Room Tip: Rooms are very small and exceptionally clean. The shop downstairs is a must.

Let me start off by saying the hotel staff was great! The hotel and rooms were small. Decorated in nice Turkish style decor. The rooftop restaurant was quaint and had a great view of the storks and the town.
The problem was that the washroom smelled like sewage, which made the whole room smell really bad! We had to sleep with the windows opened and bathroom door closed just to keep from gaging. We had booked 3 nights in the hotel, but only stayed for 2, because we couldn't stand the smell. And really you don't need more than 2 nights to see everything there is to see in the area.

Walkable from the bus and rail stations, and convenient to the town's attractions. The hotel has a panoramic restaurant on the roof from which one can see a couple of storks nests as well as the city's hilltop castle and St John's Basilica steps away. All the furniture and even the bathrooms are new and clean. Rooms are tight with little space to lay luggage. My bed was a little firm. Heating was fine and everything worked properly. Very helpful staff. The owner has a 2nd hotel close by, and operates a shop on the ground floor for decorative items and carpets, great to browse through, very well lit and fun to visit. All the public areas and rooms have high quality decorative items on display. I visited in the off season and the staff were very helpful with my logistics getting around to see all the sites on my own.

Room Tip: Those with heavy bags might request a lower floor. There are no phones in the rooms. They do have ha...
