This is a Trusted Review. Why?
We booked a transfer from Izmir Airport and were met by Jimy, who never stopped smiling throughout our stay. Our room was basic, clean and comfortable. I was a bit alarmed when woken very early the first morning by the Imam at the nearby mosque, but soon got used to that. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful, served on the lovely roof terrace by two delightful ladies. Juju and his wife were friendly and helpful, and the whole team did everything they could to help us to get the best from our stay. They made us feel like family guests. I recommend the hotel and would certainly stay there again.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Easily one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Great staff, excellent services and personal touches make a stay here truly pleasurable. Would stay again.
The Urkmez Hotel has a great location close to Ayasuluk Hill. The rooms are clean and bright with balconies overlooking the pedestrian streets below. The family that runs the hotel is really friendly and provides a free shuttle service to Ephesus twice a day. They serve a nice breakfast as well.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Brothers Juju and Jimmy are the most accommodating hosts! Nothing is to much trouble, not to mention their friendly service and outstanding hospitality. Celcuk is a remarkable place and the Urkmez just add magic to it! This is outstanding value for money!!
