Room was incredible, stayed in a cave room some 300 years old. The host was very accomodating and went out of his way to ensure we had the best experience possible. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

I stayed here and the rooms were nice even though I stayed in a large hostel room with 3 rooms and over 12 beds. I was the only person! There is an amazing breakfast each morning from 8-10 am. The staff is professional and very helpful. It is a funky cave hotel.

Cosy comfortable, clean cave rooms with beautiful views, a delicious freshly-baked breakfast and the most helpful and supportive hotel staff I've met. Plus! Reasonably priced. If I'm lucky enough to holiday in Cappadocia again, I'll be staying here for sure.

We came here on our honeymoon. We booked this through a travel agent in Istanbul. By the time we arrived, it was early hours, I guess it was 3 AM. The guy who greeted us was very warm and welcoming. The initial room was stinky so we received an upgrade (I do not know if this is as a result...

Great value with hotel in a location very central to Goreme centre. The breakfast is excellent and the room has all of the essentials - including a very nice hot shower. I recommend taking the green tour (you can walk to many of the points of interest on the red tour). And make sure you take a hot air balloon...

I traveled and stayed at the hotel for 4 nights, with my friend and I am surprised to the good service of the hotel. We booked standard room but they gave us a deluxe room and the room was spacey and big bathroom. Food was so delicious and plenty of choices. I really love the hospitality of the whole team....

Rooms are spacey and nice, with a big bathroom. Breakfast is also good with local delicacies, both savoury and sweet. The hotel is within walking distance from the town centre, located on a quite neighborhood. I must say that reception stuff are the best. Very helpful with everything. On the day of our arrival our flight was delayed and we...

great to meet the owners who have been in industry for many years and to hear from the father into how the rock's history was formed into a hotel was very interesting. Pool - Deck for breakfast - brilliant view etc etc..
