You can't beat the location of Urkmez Hotel. It's right in the center of Selcuk's quaint downtown and has plenty of access to nearby parking. It runs along a street that is mostly pedestrian, except for a few scooters and delivery trucks pattering by.
Cüneyt (Juju) and Jimmy were absolute perfect hosts, always ready to offer their assistance and making sure we had what we needed. They made itinerary suggestions and gave great driving directions.
The hotel isn't fancy, by any means. The room was small and basic, and it sort of smelled like a petrol-station bathroom. The bathroom was closet-sized and not the cleanest -- we had tiny red ants everywhere. However, the view of the citadel from our window was just amazing!
This place is very social. We didn't go out much at night since we were traveling with a toddler, but from the sounds of it, everyone in the hotel was having a great time! There was an organized barbecue and karaoke night for all the hotel guests. The sounds of their partying echoed through the stairwell and hallways at all hours. We didn't mind, though -- it was nice to stay somewhere with so much personality.
My favorite thing about Urkmez Hotel was breakfast on the terrace. I mentioned before that this place isn't fancy, but breakfast sure was!
