Homeros Pension

Top choice pension

in Selçuk
Image by Hostelworld

This long-time, family-run favourite offers 10 rooms in two buildings. The decor involves heavy use of colourful hanging textiles, vibrant colours and handcrafted furniture (made by affable owner Derviş, a carpenter and antiques collector): this ain't no minimalist hip hotel. Both houses boast roof terraces. The six rooms in the newer (main) building are the nicest.

Three of the rooms are economy ones with shared bathroom; private bathrooms are cramped.

Information from Hostelworld


Homeros Pension is run by Dervis and his family.

Since 1991, Homeros has been a popular place with travellers. It is located in the old (and quiet!) part of Selcuk town with a splendid 360' view from the rooftop terrace.

From the rooftop terrace, you can see all the sights and plan how you will visit them all: St John's Basilica (100m walk), Isa Bey Mosque (200m walk), Artemis Temple -one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World (300m walk), the Museum (150m) and Ephesus (3km).

Come to Homeros for the location; you will stay for the delightful Turkish family experience. Then you will find it hard to leave Selcuk and the Homeros.

Rates include a great breakfast to start the day. Dinner is optional (cooked by Momma).

The clean and comfortable rooms are individually decorated with local antiques, most have en-suite bathroom and air-condition.

Homeros provides transport to Ephesus, bicycle use and free Internet (wireless). Your host is Dervis with his family.
