    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!

    The hotel host and manager Okyay was awesome, a man of great info of the area and a great ambassador for Sokak and the area. He helped make our stay there an incredible experience. The location was perfect. Center of everything. Easy walking distance to Town and most everything to see. Pool was well kept although we did not use it as it was beginning of November. No safe in the room but always had security on site and main gate closed at 11 pm. So glad we stayed in town rather than the resorts out at the beach area as nothing is close by from there.

    Excellent boutique hotel!

    Very good experience! The hotel is the best in town in terms of location, service and overall quality. It’s very clean and quiet. We are type of Four Season Shangri-La stayers, this boutique hotel is at this level /quality. What makes difference is Mr. Okyay, the manager/owner. We had a bad shopping experience and purchased 4600+ TL (about 800+ USD) products from a local leather outlet. Once Mr. Okyay heard about it, he right away made several phone calls and pressed merchants to exchange the products for us and made us happy. We were amazed how could he did it because the merchant simply was not willing to exchange without us buying more from them. Mr. Okyay treats his hotel customers as friends and went extra way to help them. Thank you so much again Okyay.

    Magic in Selçuk

    The Ankanthus Hotel was fantastic. Great location. The staff ( owner and management) were wonderful, full of helpful tips and enthusiasm for the area. The hotel was very clean and beautifully decorated in traditional Turkish rugs , tiles and a hand painted hand basin. Breakfast was fantastic lots of variety of local produce ( try the honey and cream on rye bread - divine ) and the pool very inviting after a long , hot day of sightseeing. This hotel was perfect for our stay in Selçuk . Enjoy

    Akanthus Hotel Ephesus

    I dont think I have ever had such a great stay. This is not an exaggeration (ive stayed all over the world) and this was just great. The staff were friendly but not pushy,the hotel clean,smart and in a great location and the breakfast was very good. I will be going back again and soon (the history of the area is staggering and so rich I need another trip)
