My husband and I visited Hotel Bella as the first stop on our honeymoon during our first visit to Turkey. Nazmi and his staff were wonderfully helpful, organizing a private guide for Ephasus (which I HIGHLY recommend), a group tour that took us to pammuklale, and suggestions for dining, shopping, and travel. Our room was small but we didn't mind... More

Enjoyed a good value meal with tasty traditional Turkish dishes on the roof terrace overlooking the. Basilica and Selcuk market. Staff were friendly and efficient. You couldn't beat the location, with a family of storks on their nearby nest adding to the experience!

A relaxing place to eat with typical Turkish fare and quick service. Views are great, and close by we could see storks and their chicks nesting on the top of poles. Just across the road from St John's Basilica.

We took some Turkish friends out to dinner at the Hotel Bella, in part for the view. The roof top setting is great, comfortable and with a great vistas, especially at dusk. The staff were friendly and helpful but we also found the service a little lax. Our general experience in Turkey is that empty plates are removed the moment... More

The rooftop restaurant at the hotel is excellent. The decor and ambience transport you back in time. The food is very good, Uncle is a first class cook. The maitre de is a charming rogue who sweet talks the ladies and keeps everyone amused. He is admiably assisted by the younger members of the family. The Turkish wine is first... More

Bella from the façade and the location definitely looks like the No1 hotel. For sure Nazar is not the No #1 hotel in Selcuk. I have stayed and hence not recommending.

We had the set menu and wine. The wine selection was varied and all local. The meal included two apps (one warm, one cold), entree, and dessert for 30 TL. It was our best meal in Selcuk. The location was the best and the food was wonderful.

THe place is next to John Basilica and it looked pretty good from outside. We went inside and guided to the rooftop by the friendly reception guys. But thats all that they had to offer. On rooftop restaurant there were guests and one guy at the restaurant actually behaved as if we have disturbed his evening by coming there and... More

The hotel is comfortable, well located and extremely well priced. We had the smallest room for two nights. It was more than adequate - we don't spend much time in the room and you won't either. There's too much to experience in the area. The hotel has a charming rooftop restaurant/lounge/drinks area and the food is excellent by any standard.... More

Charming hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Very short walk from otogar and from train station, so easy to get to. It's right across the road from the St. John basilica ruins and the old fort. And the give a free daily shuttle to Ephesus (10 minutes away).
