“Nice place to buy carpets”
Review of Rose Carpet Shop

Rose Carpet Shop
Ranked #9 of 23 Shopping in Goreme
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Rose is a nice place to buy carpets in Cappadocia. Hasan, the owner, is knowledgeable and low-key, and we did not experience the typical hard sell of most carpet dealers. He has a good selection of carpets, and will negotiate fair prices.

There is great variety and a wide selection of prices. Hasan Bey and his son, Osman, run this shop and were incredible to work with. We ended up buying our first Turkish rug after a few previous opportunities that didn't feel right. They do a great job of educating you on the process of rugs & show a lot of variety. Never once did we feel pressure to buy and Osman was very patient as we compared and looked at rugs. In the end we purchased our first rug and are forever grateful for Osman & his father for this wonderful experience.

My wife and I lived in Turkey for several years, and vacationed in Goreme quite often. When I think back on the times we spent there, Hassan and his family were one of the reasons we kept returning time after time. Their aim is to educate people on what great carpets are like, and to demonstrate the beauty of a quickly dying art. There was never any pressure to buy anything; they were just as likely to serve lunch and tea as they were to show some recent find that caught their eye. We ended up purchasing several carpets, kilim, camelbacks, and even a woven crib. There was a wide variety of stock with new items being added all the time. I can't say enough on how truly excellent Hassan and his family treated us. They truly love carpets, teaching, and learning about everyone who crosses their threshold.

On a side note, they also run a beautiful cave hotel, managed by Hassan's son Osman, The Vineyard Cave Hotel. Top notch place to stay with the best breakfast in the valley.

After visiting a variety of Carpet Shops in both Istanbul and Goreme, my wife and I were very pleased not only with the rugs we found but also the non pressure/friendly environment. Osman (one of the owners sons) was a very respectful and an interesting (in a good way) character. He was less focused on winning you over with traditional Turkish sales techniques found in other carpet shops and instead focused on finding things that you would like for a reasonable price. I felt he was trustworthy and knowledgeable about his merchandise and overall had a very enjoyable experience!

This was a no pressure sales pitch, as enjoyable of a purchasing experience as we've ever had. We spent about two hours in his shop, as he displayed different rugs, and taught us about their rich history. We love the rug we bought, and love the history, and the story that comes with it.
