Reviewed 2 January 2012

Stayed at Yunak for 3 nights end of December. As other reviewers have mentioned, this a great hotel and an experience of lifetime. So different from other hotels that i have stayed.
Well equipped rooms, very spacious and clean. But highlight was the service. Mr Hussain at the front desk was most pleasant and welcoming.all our requests were promptly addressed to our satisfaction. Good breakfast spread and wonderful restaurant. The rooms don't have TV and WiFi signals don't reach the cave rooms. But in a way we found this a positive, as you can truly enjoy the peace and ambience without any distractions. one can always use the internet services in the library if needed.
we had to check out very early , 04:00, to catch early morning flight. Hence we would have missed the breakfast. Realizing this, Yunak team arranged for packed breakfast boxes. Though this was very basic, but the gesture was extremely nice and demonstrated their wonderful hospitality.

We stayed in this hotel a couple of years ago (the prompts would not allow me to put the correct date of our visit) and coming upon this listing in TripAdvisor reminded us of the fabulous stay. We too were impressed with the room size. Our bathroom i the cave was nicer than our bathroom in the hotel in Istanbul. The staff were kind and accommodating. We were on a long trip in Turkey and had them launder half our clothes. The common areas were lovely. There is a small stocked kithen in the main house. The dining room is terrific and we loved our dinner there. Breakfast was an abundantly laid table with fresh yogurt, cheese, breads, etc. Coffee was fantastic. They also arranged for our hot air balloon ride.
We loved the little balcony off our room and each evening would sit with a glass of wine before getting ready for dinner. The view was memorable. Oh...this was our first vacation together -- very romantic. I'd very much recommend the hotel for couples.

Room Tip: Be sure to stay is one of the older rooms and make sure you have a balcony.

This was the first time we stayed in a cave hotel. With that said, I would like to believe that Yunak Evleri is definitely one of the nicest cave hotels in Cappadocia.

To start with, I was stunned with the size of the room. It had a huge tv area (without a tv unfortunately), the bedroom was huge with a very comfy lounge chair in one corner. The bathroom also was nearly the size of the bedroom. Everything was very tastefully done and provided for a fantastic cave dwelling experience! After we were done appreciating the room and settled in, we did realise that it was a little too quiet in there because of no television (i suppose some other rooms had it). However the hotel did have a tv room as well as a mini-library, along with a decent collection of audio cds that you could borrow.

The hotel management were great and there was a complimentary bottle of very nice red wine when we first came in (our tour operator had informed them that we were celebrating our anniversary). Another advantage of the hotel is that it is conveniently located with the city centre being only a 10-15 minute walk away. We strongly recommend this hotel if anyone is visiting Cappadocia and am sure you cannot be disappointed with it.

(Btw - forget about getting a wifi signal in the cave room!)

Room Tip: We stayed in room no.112 which was the deluxe double bedroom, although it is 3 flights of stairs. It...

Thank you very much for all your efforts to memorable stay at your hotel. Special thanks to Abdullah who is one of the manager of hotel. He is quite professional for all our demands. Bathrooms are equipped with marbles and splendid adornment. Nice view to old town where you can see cave dwellings. Just one tip ; try to visit Cappadocia in summer period. It is quite cold in winter period. We wish to stay again one more time.

We stayed in one of te cave rooms of Yunak Evleri, which we adored and definitely would stay here again, if we were in the region! The hotel staff was very helpful and kind, organized everything for us. The room was great and fully equipped - except for the tv. (which is a choice, music player instead of tv:)) even the breakfast was very nice both traditional turkish and european tastes. Even the price you pay is a bit on the high side, I really recommend this hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Magical Serenity : Yunak Evleri Cappadocia In Cappadocia's magical landscape of fairy chimneys, in the ancient village of Urgup, is a unique cave hotel carved into a mountain cliff, the Yunak Evleri. This hotel includes 7 cave houses, 40 rooms dating back to the 5th and 6th centuries and a 19th century Greek Mansion. Yunak Evleri is an inspiring hotel - an ideal base for exploring Cappadocia's elaborate underground cities, hidden cavernous churches and enchanting rock terrain. A labyrinth of narrow passageways and curved stone stairways lead to unique rooms tastefully decorated in warm traditional style. These exceptional cave houses are renovated and decorated with care and in their own distinct style with strictly respecting the local character. The decor is elegant and personalized with beautiful hand-crafted furnishings and antiques. All rooms have private patios overlooking the Turkish Mesa. With 40 rooms, Yunak Evleri is small enough to be intimate, yet large enough to offer you privacy. Accommodations range from exotic luxury caves to multi-chamber deluxe suites, including family suites. One can find the signs of past times in each room which all have been decorated differently. The elegant decor is prominent wherever you lay your eyes on.Emperador marble floors, handcrafted lace curtains, antique chests and bedside tables, traditional bed covers, old brass bedsteads, old handcrafted writing desks , old kilim carpets and antique lighting have been chosen with care and with simplicity in mind. At the foot of the cliff stands the hotel's main lobby. Housed in a 19th century Greek mansion, the main building exudes a kind of sophisticated charm. Within the stone building, cozy meeting rooms provide a soothing atmosphere for lounging in the evening. Alongside a room with computer and wireless Internet connection, the music room has a wide variety of CDs you can borrow and the TV room is decked out in plush Turkish cushions with a view of the surrounding cliffs. There is a DVD room on the second floor decorated with local handmade pottery accessories, candles, and a lovely furnace. Evenings are characterized by sunset gatherings on soft upholstered Turkish pillows warmed by an outdoor fireplace. Candlelight dining is offered on the adjacent rooftop terrace. We serve local homemade foods for dinner and an open-buffet breakfast. Yunak Evleri opened its doors to its guests in 2000 and since then has hosted around 200,000 travellers from all regions of the world. Listed in various prominent guidebooks' top hotels lists, Yunak Evleri has created a peaceful balance between modern today and traditional past. With its convenient location in the center of Urgup, Yunak Evleri is a perfect base for daily excursions within Cappadocia. ... more   less
