  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Amazingly well run little hotel. The two people running the hotel were incredibly friendly and helpful with suggestions and assistance with transportation. The rooms were cute and the courtyard was very relaxing. The hotel's location was walking distance to several good restaurants and tourist sites in Selcuk (as well as a quick cab ride to Ephesus). The breakfast had a large variety of options and was one of the best Turkish breakfasts that we had during our trip. Highly recommend!

    I stayed at many hotels in Turkey during this trip and will say hands down, this by far was the best! From the food, hospitality, location and accommodation,,my husband and I had no complaints! It was almost like a semi-private Villa setting. Good local restaurants and shops within walking distance as well as to St. Johns. Ephesus is a short drive from here and the hotel managers were very helpful with sightseeing tips.

    The best part of the hotel was the location. Selchuk is the best venue for exploring Ephesus. The hotel is perfectly situated to Ephesus, Temple of Artemis, Basilica of St John, The Ephesus Museum and the Castle. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated. The staff (Okyay in particular) are friendly and go out of their way to make your stay complete. This was the best hotel in Turkey

    Perfect hotel! Beautifully designed, decorated, and maintained. Great location, delicious breakfast, wonderful owners. Pool perfect for cooling off after visiting the ruins. They even have homemade soap and ancient artifacts found when excavating the site. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Turkish Hospitality at its Finest

    Our stay was excellent. The Akanthus is a special hotel in a very special part of the world - the ideal place from which to explore the many significant archeological sites around Selcuk. Marvelous staff and attention to detail. Murat and Okyay were very attentive and welcoming hosts. They spent a lot of time connecting with us and making sure our stay was a pleasure. The pool was spotless and the breakfast was generous and delicious. I highly recommend this property. Murat even drove us from the hotel to our next destination in Ilica - service above and beyond the usual. We'll be back someday soon, we hope.
