Visited Şirince with my family and amazed by it's beauty. Efes Konakları was super confortable and the owner and the staff was soo helpfull. Definitely recommend it. But the village is not very suitable for small children.

We had an amazing time in Sirince and part of it is due to the comfort and cuteness of this boutique hotel we stayed at, Efes Konaklari. We were greeted like family. The breakfast was included in our stay and it was magnificent. Our room was very decorative with a country french design, very chic and comfortable. The building is all stone and very quaint. People here are very sweet. Make sure to go and have a wine tasting of all the seasonal fruit wines.

Despite not having a common language the delightful hostess made my stay extra special. Not only did I receive a warm welcome and a fabulous room upgrade, but I had breakfasts to die for, a parting gift and a ride to the airport.
My room was just divine with a super comfy bed and glorious pillows, a bathroom with a small turkish bath area, a huge window seat to watch the world from and the most eclectic decor you could imagine.
The breakfasts were indescribable and each day was a bit different
The village is touristy but still offers excellent local food and once the tourists have gone for the day turns into a sleepy and welcoming village, perfect for a chill out spot.
Genuine old-old-world charm

Be prepared for a long twisty uphill climb from Selcuk to Sirince, and then a bit of a challenge to find this unassuming little chalet-style inn in the town. Best to do it in daylight (we learned the hard way). Inside, the bed and pillows were lovely and the bathroom was the only significant disappointment. We were pleased to be upgraded at no charge to a larger room upstairs but the bathroom was at eye level with innumerable pedestrians and residents able to see in from the adjacent sloped side street. Although we are not overly shy, we had to keep the bathroom window closed and the blind fully lowered almost all the time. This cut down the fresh air circulation considerably. Also, the shower taps were faulty and needed considerable getting used to. Beyond all that, this charming place is enthusiastically run by a young couple who manage to communicate effectively through gestures and actions. You will be led down narrow lanes to a lovely quite inexpensive restaurant if that is your need; similarly you will be escorted to their own nearby restaurant for breakfast (otherwise you would never find it). Breakfast is astonishingly, almost indecently, bountiful; we sent pictures home of the literally dozens of small treats that were spread at our table for just the two of us -- specialty dishes, eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers, cheeses, French toast, fried potatoes, spreads, olives, cheese-stuffed pitas, fresh breads, condiments, jams, etc. We are not shoppers but could not help but be fascinated by the artisans and vendors lining all the cobblestone laneways. They even managed to get quite a lot of money out of us, for what appeared to be real values in leather and fabrics. Overall: stay one night; the hotel is a unique experience and you won't be sorry. Ephesus is less than 20 minutes away and of course not to be missed. Bonus suggestion: we drove northwest along the Aegean coast, from just north of Kushadasi up to the Teos area, and found the vistas amazing and untouristed.
