Why we went there?
Ephesus, an ancient Greek city situated on the coast of Ionia in Selcuk was one of our ‘must see’ on our travel around Turkey. Selcuk was also a stopping off point before we travelled to Canakkale and then onto Istanbul.
Why we chose it?
We chose the Tuncay Pension because of the good reviews of Tripadvisor and Booking.com. They offered double rooms with ensuite, breakfast, free Wi-Fi plus there is a lovely garden area to relax in. It was also located centrally within town. Pick up service was offered from the bus station.
What was it like?
We arrived at Tuncay Pension after a very long bus trip from Goreme that took about fourteen hours. We took a short taxi ride as it turned out although if we had given our details to the owner he would have arranged a pick up. It is quite possible to walk from the bus station to the accommodation. The owner greeted us and arranged for sandwiches to be delivered as we had missed breakfast. We enjoyed the feast and coffee in the garden area. Our double room with ensuite looked over the garden area and was bright and cheery. The owner advised us on how best to visit Ephesus in the time that we had and where the location of the restaurants are within the town. The whole complex was very clean and well maintained.
What was around it?
Ephesus is a ten minute taxi ride away. Supermarkets, banks, ATMs, bars and restaurants within a block or two of the Pension. The Bus Station is within a ten minute walk. Ephesus is one of the main attractions in Selcuk, there is also a castle situated on top of the hill in town that is worth a visit.
Would we return?
Yes. The accommodation was reasonably priced for the location close to Ephesus; Tuncay Pension is clean and would make a good base to explore more of the region after the main event Ephesus.
Cost? Euros 28/AUD 76 per night
How was the Wi-Fi?
Wi-Fi was stronger down in the garden area.
