Nazhan Hotel & Cafe
Ranked #18 of 34 Hotels in Selcuk
Reviewed 2 October 2013

From the moment you arrive, this little gem of a hotel makes you feel at home.
The operator lives there with her family, and they are just the kindest people.
The location is perfect for your Ephesus day trips, and it's located right next to the cistern of St. John's church! History right at your door step.
Breakfast is in the cute foyer, and it's close to restaurants and shops if you need to get anything.
There is a roof top, and it's a wonderful place for a late night drink or food.
Rooms are basic, but that's all you need when you are in Selcuk. The location and rooftop and service make up for it!

We really enjoyed this cute little place. The owner (or manager) was so sweet. In the evening, she made us some tea and coffee and encouraged us to go on the rooftop terrace. She brought us up a full bowl of fruit from her mother's garden. It was such a sweet touch. The location was within walking distance of everything we needed. The people of Turkey are just lovely!

This is a little gem. Beautifully situated right by St John's Basilica and very close to Ephesus. The rooms are very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The courtyard is the highlight though, full of idiosyncratic decorations and a fabulous place for a breakfast. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was lovely - very Turkish but all high quality ingredients.

I arrived after reading the Lonely Planet editors pick, expecting them to be fully booked up in July but was lucky enough to get a room. I was given a clean, tidy and well appointed room off the main courtyard (decorated with trinkets here and there, bougainvillea bursting with flowers - postcard stuff!). Nazhan is filled with family charm, Mina (the hostess) greeted me and advised me of things to see and do as well as Ephesus. Karen (her daughter) took my passport details into their check in book and SeaTac (her cousin) took my bags and showed me to my room. Breakfast in the morning was the best meal I had had in ages, bread, cheeses, pickles, olives, tomato, eggs, jams - more than enough to keep you going for a day of exploring. I'd recommend anyone stay here in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Simply ask for what you want. They have a new renovated section or a traditional pension section - I...

Nazhan is a very beutiful family hotel. It has many collections of little things and nicely decorated the whole place. The hostess Mina is a very kind lady and she has a very helpful young gentleman Sertac (her nephew). Mina also has a very beautiful and talented daughter Karden. We are so warmly received by this lovely family and enjoyed our stay there, although it's only one night.

I have to mention Sertac again here as he's such a sweet boy and so so so helpful! Miss you, Sertac!

Room Tip: 10 mins walk from the bus station

The owner of this charming, small hotel and his manager are both gracious and attentive hosts. The facilities are exceptionally clean with great quality touches in both the common areas and the rooms. Moreover, the owner went out of his way to make us feel at home, provide insider advices on shopping, touring and eating in, and around, this great little alternative to Kusadasi.

The location is ideal and just steps away from the town center for shopping and eating. The Church of St. John is practically in Nazhan's backyard (about 50 yards away). The ancient ruins of Ephesus are only two miles away. Unless you are visiting on a cruise, there is no reason to stay in the tourist haven of Kusadasi. Selcuk is much nicer and less hectic.

We liked Nazhan so much that we stayed twice on our trip. The second time was the night before our flight back to Istanbul from Izmir. Selcuk and Nazhan Hotel are only 45 minutes away from the Izmir airport. So, staying here was much more desirable than spending our last night in Izmir which is pretty industrial and not a very attractive place to stay.

Room Tip: Room # 7 was very comfortable, quiet and on the ground floor outside the beautiful bougainvillea cov...

Nazhan is a very cute hotel, built around a tiny but adorable courtyard. The location is excellent, right next to St. John's Basilica and the not-to-be-missed Isa Bey mosque. There are plenty of places to eat within 5-10 minutes. You can walk to the Artemis temple and to the museum (closed for renovation until September 2013). Ephesus is a bit too far to walk, but still possible. Parking near the hotel is easy. Breakfast was excellent, and you can eat dinner with a day's notice. I highly recommend that you do. The family that runs the hotel are very welcoming, and are excellent cooks. The free wifi works well. One warning: Some rooms are tiny and although the hotel is off the main road, some rooms can still be noisy, forcing you to use the a/c. Even more than elsewhere, make sure you know what room you are getting. Our feeling was that the small rooms were a bit over-priced but the larger rooms were well worth the extra cost. All in all, a great base for seeing the region, which has a lot more than just Ephesus. Stay a few days and explore places like Priene, Magnesia, and Sirince, and take walks in the nearby hills.

Room Tip: Just make sure you know the size. that varies more than the price.
