I was very apprehensive about this hotel once I realized that it was just out of town.
We travelled by bus to Selcuk and just as it states, you find the sign that says Atilla's and actually the day we arrived he was sitting there. We were quickly shuttled to the hotel and discovered a little paradise that you would never even know is there.
We were shown to our room, given blankets and towels. The room was basic but clean. After getting settled, we went back into town with the shuttle. At this time we were asked if we would be joining the group for dinner that night. It's an additional charge but worth it. We decided we would come back for dinner. We wondered around Selcuk for a little while. Went back to the shuttle pick up point and just had to ask Daniel at the tour agency office to call Atilla for us. Within a few minutes our ride was there.
Dinner was great. You sit down with other guests and get to hear their travel adventures. I can't say enough about the opportunity that Atilla'soffers you to socialize with other travellers. I have never stayed anywhere like this. There are common sitting areas, the pool table and every night there was a fire to sit around, enjoy and have a few drinks. The overall atmosphere is so comfortable that you want to spend your evenings there.
Breakfast is wonderful. You have your choice of several different things. Which is a nice change from the usual breakfasts served (egg, olives, bread, cucumber).
Anytime we wanted to go into town or when we decided to go to Ephesus we were dropped off by the shuttle. It was so convenient. The staff was very helpful and on a rainy day gave us suggestions of other places to visit.
The other people staying at Atilla's when I was there varied from families, to groups in their 20's that were camping, to some older couples. I'm 40 and never did I feel out of place or too old to be here. There was one evening that the festivities were quite loud, but the next night I was the loud one so I couldn't complain.
Overall my stay here was one of the best experiences of the trip. If you aren't a social person there is space to keep to yourself. I don't want to give the impression that you are "forced to be social". Its not that way at all.
Atilla is an amazing host and I can't wait to go back and stay here.
