Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Bella

St. Jean Cad. 7, Selçuk, Izmir, 35920, Turkey

One of Selçuk's pre-eminent boutique hotels, this quaint establishment has a spacious terrace overlooking the St. John Basilica next door (and a stork nest in season) that makes a fine setting for breakfast. Hearty, good-value set dinners are also served there each evening, and the hotel restaurant is open to non-guests. Some rooms have balconies, and all have Turkish carpets and colorful kilim (rugs) or ceramics hanging on the walls—the owners also run a carpet shop next door. Be sure to ask for a room with a basilica view—it's worth the small premium you'll pay. The same owners also operate the nearby Nilya Hotel.
