“Great service”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

We booked this hotel for 2 nights. The brothers who run it are very friendly and we thought the service was very good. It was very cold in Selcuk during our stay but the air-con heaters in the bedrooms worked. One problem we have had in other hotels in Turkey is that many of them are completely dependent on solar heating for the water and it is not always sunny. Fortunately this was not the case at the Canberra and we enjoyed hot showers both mornings. Breakfast not outstanding but B&B was only 30 Euros for double room per night. Good budget hotel.

This is the best place we stayed at during our 3 weeks in Turkey. I really can't say enough good things about the hotel or the brothers who run it. We booked for one night and decided to spend an extra night there even though it meant being charged for our reservation in Izmir.
We had a twin room on the 3rd floor, with a view of the mosque and the road to Ephesus from our 2(!!) balconies. The room was small but spotless, the beds comfortable with really nice and very clean linens. I think this is the only place I've stayed in ages where even the blankets smelled fresh. The bathroom was also very clean and though we didn't have hot water the first night, it was fixed straight away when we asked about it in the morning.
The lobby is very comfortable, like a living room and they have English tv channels via sattelite in the lobby. The wifi was strong in both the room and lobby, good enough to Skype with my family on Xmas.
When we left, the owner even volunteered to drive us to the train station!
Note: they did tend to run out of breakfast by about 9, so get there early.

We enjoyed staying here. It was a clean, comfortable room and had a tidy looking bathroom. Unfortunatley, along with many of our tour mates, our shower would not actually take water down the plughole and so we were inevitably flooded - even our tour leaders was flooded, he had to change rooms it was that bad. Also the rooms were lacking in soundproofing, I was clearly able to hear our neighbours next door in their bathroom and as my stomach started doing pyrotechnics I didn't envy them either. This lack of soundproofing also proved inconvenient when we decided to enjoy the food and drink offered on the rooftop - the view and sunset were breathtaking and the food was beautiful, we enjoyed it immensly. Unfortunatley after many drinks and shisha we got a little too rowdy and had to be asked to quiten down as people on the floor below had complained. While we were happy to quiten it was obvious through this, the bathroom and clearly hearing people moving past the room it wasn't the quietist place in the world. All in all though, I'd stay again. Oh and it's very close to many interesting sites, very close to Ephesus and the local sites - great if you're like me and enjoy walking to places.

Reviewed 3 October 2011

The owner of the hotel is very friendly and helpful. Others, including his brother, not as much. Rather than spending their entire days watching TV, the brothers running the hotel could use their time more effectively by making minor repairs that would improve things greatly. Friendliness is not a substitute for effort. There were many small things in our room that could use the attention, such as unscrewed hooks, curtains falling off the rails, toilet paper dispenser broken off the wall, and towel rack falling off the wall. The breakfast on the roof top patio (which had a great view) is mediocre. Powdered juice and Nescafe coffee in a hotel of this price is unacceptable, and the only fruit offered was watermelon. There is an amazing, super cheap, farmers market in town two days a week, so the brothers could easily spend a few lira to provide a more substantial breakfast food. Also, it is essential for guests to use earplugs as the hotel is right next to a mosque and a busy road. Although the windows are double-paned, the noise travels in through the un-insulated frame. Hotel is in a convenient location to get to the Ephesus ruins and the beach, especially if you have a car. Overall, a very mediocre hotel.

Room Tip: Choose rooms away from the next door mosque and wear earplugs.
