Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On the blue route in cappadoccia. A no entry fee place, no buses when we were there, tin roof over excavation. Easy parking, no entities there, but on the edge of a small town

These ruins dating to the fourth century were discovered only very recently, in 2002. A lot of area is yet to be escavated. We can see the Roman Bath area with its heating system, the Agora (market place), the parliament and meeting area, the basilica with mosaics and a cemetery. The area seems to be neglected with no security. Wish it was given its due. There is no entry fee.

really nothing much to see, not recommended if you are not really into history. bring water to pour over the mosiacs, then it becomes more colorful...but really, there are more interesting things to see in cappadocia

My wife and I had not heard of this place before; however, our driver brought us here on our return to Urgup from Songali Valley. One only needs to spend about 15 minutes here. The excavated mosaics on the floor were a pleasant surprise and make it worth a quick visit.

We visited Sobesos on a half-day trip to the Soganli Valley. There are some well-preserved mosaic floors and the ruins of a bathhouse. Worth a quick stop - perhaps 15 minutes - on your way to the Soganli Valley.

It is indeed out of the way of all the other sites in Cappodocia, but I personally felt it was worth the trip to see this excavation in process of an ancient ruin. It feels raw and in it's natural state. Sadly, Turkey has too many of these improperly excavated or preserved sites. Hopefully, in the future this site will get the attention and funding it deserves and the next time you return to Cappodocia it will be transformed.

An unexpected ancient city literally in the middle of nowhere. There are striking Roman mosaics on the excavated level. If you like history, Roman architecture or the peace and tranquility of a rural location go and have an explore.
