Hotel Nazar
Ranked #5 of 34 Hotels in Selcuk
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We spent two nights at Hotel Nazar while visiting the Ephesus and surrounding sights on a independent driving tour of Turkey. The central location was perfect with easy access to the town. Ilker Sen, the owner, spoke perfect English, provided recommendations and directions to area attractions. He even drove us to the entry of Ephesus and returned to pick us up at the exit a few hours later. He also drove us to the starting point of a walking tour of Selcuk the first afternoon were were there. He, and his staff could not have been more helpful.

The rooms were spotless and nicely appointed and the pool area relaxing. Breakfast was excellent, (eggs cooked to order) and a multi-course dinner for 10 euros was excellent. Food was prepared by his French mother-in-law.

The hotel has a direct from the US phone number listed on their website you can call for reservations and travel information. Ilker Sen, the owner, was a travel agent.

We spent four nights at Hotel Nazar in September, 2013. Selcuk was our base for visiting Ephesus and the surrounding sites. Ilker, the owner, is in my opinion what makes this hotel a real value. He is very knowledgeable and will offer great information and advice as he worked in the travel industry before purchasing the hotel. The hotel is more like staying at someone's big house; everyone involved with hotel could not have been nicer.

We ate dinner twice which was delicious both times and I would highly recommend it. Breakfast was good in the mornings too - there was always plenty of everything.

On our last day Ilker suggested we visit Aphrodisias and Pamukkale - both were fabulous and places we would have missed if not for him. He was even so kind as to spend the day with us and drive us in his car.

He truly cares about his guests and wants them to have a great experience while there. His English is exceptional - his hotel is clean, centrally located and the perfect place to stay while visiting this part of Turkey.

We loved Turkey and hope to return again soon.

We travelled round Turkey for 3 weeks and voted this our favourite hotel. In fact, the perfect
place for independent travellers. The location is fantastic, just beneath the castle, with easy
access to the town. The room was clean and comfortable, the pool and terrace most attractive
places to relax. However, the staff were what made this a most memorable experience. Ilker, the new owner, could not have been more helpful, even running us to the station at the end of
our stay. He was most knowledgeable about Selcuk and, in fact, the whole of Turkey. The staff
in the kitchen were marvellous. We had two evening meals on the terrace, which were the
best we experienced in Turkey - delicious local specialities at incredible prices. We cannot
recommend this hotel highly enough and thank all the staff for all their hard work.

This is exactly the sort of place I love to stay when traveling in a new country. It is right in the middle of the "real" town, and an easy walk to the restaurants in the center. You get to experience a little of the neighborhood life -- a little boy at a school down the street came out to practice his English with us, kids playing soccer, ladies sitting on their porches chatting in the afternoon. But the hotel itself is a little oasis in dusty Selcuk, with a gorgeous walled yard and lovely pool (the kids were SO happy). We were a large party - 13 people in 4 rooms - and all of our rooms were just fine, very large, with plenty of space for kids, luggage, spreading out and taking a rest. Our very favorite part was the roof deck, with amazing views. We were only there one night, unfortunately, because we would have had dinner there again. The multi-course meal was just fantastic and very authentic-feeling. Highly recommend this place.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here in the last 9 years but the 1st under this new owner.
I returned here as it is such a great location and you can walk to the town in minutes.
The rooms, aircon, breakfast on the roof terrace and the pool are all great especially in this price range.
The owner used to be a travel agent so he has all sorts of information at his fingertips.
My husband & I were going to travel 10-11 hrs on the bus to get back to Istanbul. The day before leaving, he booked us a flight to Istanbul and it only cost us 20TL more than the bus ticket!!
Nothing is too much trouble for this host and we would recommend his hotel in a heartbeat.
I apologise to him for the delay in writing this review as we stayed in June 2012.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main street
