We only stayed at the Urkmez for two nights while visiting Epheseus. The room was adequate certainly for 40 Euros. Similar comments to those below - bathroom was tiny with sliding door not offering much privacy and the shower small. Our bed was comfortable but the sheet didn't fully cover the bed (or my husband's feet). However,
the warmth and friendliness of the two brother/owners more than compensated especially since our stay was short. Note - the hotel has no elevator so if you have any problems with stairs - this is not the place for you.
The rooftop breakfast room has a closed and open air section and great views of the city. The storks nesting are indeed a highlight at his time of year. Typical Turkish breakfast, simple but very fresh.
The managers were very efficient with respect to replying to e-mails and arranging transport. We had an unexpected change of flight, advised them and had an e-mail back with confirmed pick up at the new time within 15 minutes.
The hotel is good value for the money so long as you realize it is an older hotel. This is Turkish hospitality at it's best - we would stay again.
Also, try the small family cafe on the corner Ephesus Restaurant (Isabey Mah. N. Kemal Cad. No 2). Food all tastes homemade - try the eggplant in yoghurt. Vegetable dishes are best, meat a bit tough.
