“Great place to stay in downtown Selcuk”
Reviewed 14 November 2010

This was one hotel where the owner was eagerly awaiting my arrival. He himself helped in carrying our heavy luggage to the room on the top floor and helped us get settled in. The rooms are a little small for 3 beds, but it was not too difficult. The balcony overlooks the castle in the distance, and the downtown area in front.
Savas, the owner, gave several helpful suggestions on where and what to visit and let us decide on the priority. (Our aim was to see Ephesus and the surrounding ruins). The staff is super friendly and it was apparent that the owner worked hard in ensuring the comfort of his guests.
The rooftop restaurant is charming with the cook serving up dishes on request while one basks in the Aegean nighttime weather. Carparking facilities are available in the front of the hotel, and there is a wireless router on every floor.
I would certainly stay in this hotel again if I wish to stay in Selcuk downtown.

Earlier this year my wife and I spent a month traveling through Turkey, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt. We rented a car for a week in Izmir so Selcuk was our first stop. We chose Selcuk because we wanted a place close to Sirence and Ephasus. When we arrived in Selcuk, we had difficulty finding the hotel. So we stopped at the gas station and they called Savas Tas, the owner, who sent one of his staff on a motor cycle to guide us to the hotel. Savas was just a delight to talk with, giving us a background of the region, helping us with our plans for the next day at Ephasus, and sharing other interesting sights to see as we headed for Didyma.

The hotel was very clean, breakfast on the balcony combined both a great view with excellent food. They continue to upgrade the hotel, We had a balcony room facing the Byzantine fortress which was great for enjoying afternoon refreshments. It is also conveniently located near excellent restaurants, shopping, and the museum, a don't miss stop after visiting Ephasus.

We would highly recommend the Canberra hotel to anyone visiting this part of Turkey.

The location of the hotel is very good, near to the bus station. The rooms are clean, with balcony and bathroom with a really good shower.
They have a restaurant on the roof with a very good views, where you can eat good meals and no expensive. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

I stayed in the Canberra Hotel in July 2010 with my partner and son.

An official tourist guide picked us up outside the Basillica (it's just so easy finding accommodation in Turkey, isn't it? They can instantly sense a tourist who's looking and they bring it to you on a plate. Wonderful country!) and suggested it after listening to what we were looking for, and he was right.

We were only intending to stay a night en route but the proprietor took the time to tell us about the local attractions (apart from Efes, which we've visited before); he was right, too. We're really glad we stayed on a few days more. Selcuk's a really interesting, relaxed place.

The hotel's clean and well fitted. It's very well located close to the town centre, but we heard no noise at night. The proprietors (two brothers, I think) were charming and helpful and not at all pushy. There were no hidden costs, no invitations to pay for extras such as excursions, and we were even given advice about rip-off places/people to avoid in the area. And this was one of the less expensive places we stayed in Turkey; very good value.

The roof-top restaurant deserves a special mention. The food was as good as any we had in Turkey. The fish was particularly good. Not a huge selection, but I've always preferred a restaurant to serve a few excellent dishes rather than a lot of ordinary ones. And what a fantastic view to go with the meal! Also, the height seems to be out of reach for the mozzies.

I feel I ought to balance this by writing about the negatives. But, in all honesty, there were none!
