Selcuk

Post by moggi » Sun Sep 21, 2008 4:29 am

We were thinking of staying at the Rebetika Hotel which 'look' pretty nice on the website. Has anyone stayed recently. I read one review from someone who had that said the pool that is advertised is in fact a photo of the hotel next door. We're leaving soon so we need to confirm where we might stay, couple with 12 year old boy
thanks Morag

We stayed at the Akay hotel last year both recommended by both the hotel Bella and the Turkey Travel Planner web site..as a family of 5 and stayed in 2 adjancent rooms...and yes they have a pool however we visited in Feb..so we were not interested in swimming due to the weather..we stayes in the new section of the hotel.

I wrote this review last year...

We arrived in Selcuk and after a phone call found the AKAY Hotel located steps away from the Isa Bey Mosque and The Basilica of Saint John.

We were referred to this hotel by the Hotel Bella which was closed for renovations at this time of year. A perfect location for our family. Glad we stayed here instead. We looked at the hotels facilities and decided to stay in the newer section of the Hotel.

This small historical hotel has a beautiful courtyard with a small pool.

We stayed in a wonderful large room with nice DBL bed for us and a second room for the kids with 3 beds. The rooms where excellent and very clean with a small bathroom and shower stall. They had A/C, TV's and hair dryers. The most important the rooms were warm and cozy with hot showers.

Breakfast was great and the staff were very helpful in answering all our questions about the local area and Ephesus.

Just down the stairs on the lower section they had a perfect ottoman room set up with lots of antiques and even a nargile. Very romantic and a warm atmosphere.

I would love to go back and spend more time in this area. We stayed for one night but it was unforgetable !!!

Looks like the Akay's pool to me:

I'm guessing "A" stands for Akay.
