TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Nilya Selcuk
Nilya Hotel was comfy and cosy and they offered you tea, coffee, mixed juice, peach juice or nectarine juice when you came back from there day out but there was no TV in the room the only TV they had was in the reception room where they served up a nice meal of Turkish Bagel, carrot and cucumber sticks, apple quarters, yoghurt and an oppitional egg.
