We happened on the Hotel Bella several years ago and have thought of it ever since as our home in Selçuk. As it happened, we didn't get back until this year, but, in fact, we planned our trip so that we'd be able to stay at the Bella. It was everything we remembered: comfortable beds with comfortable bed linens (I hate cotton-poly sheets), a clean room and a clean bathroom, friendly and helpful proprietors, and a wonderful rooftop terrace where we not only ate meals but read, wrote in our journals, and watched the storks only a few feet away. The first time we went, the room felt a little Spartan, but there's been considerable remodeling since then, and our room this time was very attractive and welcoming. The only reason we didn't give the Bella a 5 was because one can get better dinners elsewhere. However, I confess that we found the convenience of dining in the hotel usually outweighed the lure of alternative restaurants.
Incidentally, other reviewers have commented that they felt pressure to patronize the rug shop. We have never felt that.
