We stayed with another couple in May 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this magnificent hotel. The staff were super friendly and could not do enough for you. We even had a staff member come and pick us up from the top area so that we did not have to walk down the steep road leading to the hotel.... More

Hands down! What a cool location! Upon arrival we were given a glass of local wine. That got things off to a great start! They then took us to our room and it was a beautiful room. Just exquisite. But it was not a cave room and my wife, in tears, told me she was so looking forward to a... More

Enjoyed the second half of our ruby wedding trip in Turkey in this amazing hotel. Very warm welcome and a lovely little suite of caves with a view down the valley. Unfortunately unable to sit out on our small terrace as the weather was poor but enjoyed a swim on our last day in the rain! Lovely touch of rose... More

WOW! We haven't been able to stop saying this for two days. I still can't believe what I'm seeing. This was a church and monestary which was carved out of living rock in a cliff/rock formation. It is 1100 years old, but completely refurnished. Our room and the room for our kids is just huge. Our bed is larger that... More

As we got to Gamirasu, we were welcomed with fresh orange juice (which is the best I've ever had) and to top it up we were upgraded to a superior family suite instead of the 2 deluxe rooms we had booked ! The rooms were amazing from the view, size, decor, detailing to the fancy bathroom with the jetted tubs... More

Beautiful, magical hotel with gorgeous rooms, incredible views, and welcoming, fantastic, friendly service. I agree with the other glowing reviews but want to add how warm the service was. An example of this was when we arrived late in the evening and the restaurant was already closed. Without us asking, we were offered soup, snacks, etc. - "you must be... More

My boyfriend and I have been travelling for a few weeks and this hotel was my favourite. The staff couldn't do enough for you, the setting is spectacular, the rooms are the coolest that I've seen, the food is delicious and very well priced. We didn't leave the hotel except for our hot air balloon ride that they booked for... More

Stayed 2 night in Cappadocia- 1st at Suhan which was disappointing at the least. Gamirasu more than made up for this. If you are in Cappadocia it's best to stay at a cave hotel and you can't go wrong with this one. This hotel gives you a real feel for the place. The food and beverage was excellent and the... More

We stayed there for two nights and it was amazing!! Service very friendly, gorgeous views, inside of the rooms very creatively done!! Amongst our stays in Istanbul, Pammukale , Kusadesi and Cappadoccia, this was the best.

Hotel makes great use of the existing cave house with sensitive additions. restaurant and food was great, service excellent. Our room was very spacious and it even had a bath. They put on evening shows such as Whirling Dervishes which was really interesting and made good use of the location for effect
