Ali Sakarya, the owner, is inspirational. He knows so much and is so passionate about his work that whether or not you end up buying a carpet, you leave feeling like you have had a major educational experience. His hospitality is lovely and his carpets are equally so. His prices are extremely reasonable and while he is encouraging, you never... More

We stumbled upon Sultan Carpet while walking around the town and we were invited into the shop for tea by the owner, Ali, and some of the other staff. Everyday we walked by the shop and every day we were invited in for some apple tea. The staff were very nice and did not pressure us to buy anything. They... More

Having already purchased a couple of kilims in other areas of Turkey, we really enjoyed our experience with Ali and Sultan Carpets in Goreme / Capadoccia. The prices are set which alleviates the stressful bargaining process. We bought a beautiful kilim (hall runner) which required shortening. Ali also took one of our other kilims purchased elsewhere and had this repaired... More

I stayed in Mehmet's Sultan Cave Hotel (another must) on a music tour of Turkey, a few years back, and was given a tour of his Carpet store. I was very impressed with the quality of the carpets. Mehmet was very knowledgable and helpful. The prices were so good that I ended up purchasing 3 carpets and had them shipped... More

Like many other reviews, the key for Sultan Carpet was Ali's time and knowledge provided to make an informed decision on purchasing a Turkish carpet. We had no prior experience on purchasing a Turkish carpet and did not have a feel for what a quality Turkish carpet would cost; however, we wanted a memento from our trip in Turkey and... More

My group had a fantastic presentation by Ali, the proprietor. He taught us so much about the different carpets, their history, and how they are made. They have a fantastic selection and their prices are very fair, no bargaining required. They give you lots of individual attention and advice. And they will ship the carpet right to your door, so...

Knowing little about Carpet shopping, we struck gold walking into Sultan Carpets and meeting Ali. He was was wonderfully helpful and sincere in helping us choose our carpets; of which there was a huge and beautiful range. Our experience was truely memorable. Within a week they were safely in New Zealand, much to our delight. I would highly recommend him... More

I just returned home from work to find my newly purchased rug from Sultan Carpet. Hard to believe that it was less than a week ago that I was looking at it inside (and outside) the shop in the town of Goreme, Cappadocia. Ali, one of the owners, is a charming, knowledgable salesman who was not pushy or aggressive but... More

We dealt with Ali, one of the owners and others on his staff. All knowledgeable. We bought 3 carpets and they were altered, then shipped and delivered without a hitch. All first-class. Would buy from them again -- even long distance from California.

When in Cappadocia you are required (it seems, and worth it) to take a balloon ride...and when you visit Turkey you are also required to buy a carpet, but a carpet should last a lifetime, a balloon ride takes an hour-plus. So it makes sense for you to do your homework and find a carpet dealer you can trust. Sultan... More
