I chose to stay at Ufuk Pension because I read beforehand that Orhan, the owner, would help organize my trip. When I arrived, he first sat down with me and helped me plan my time based on my trip priorities. Honestly, my trip to Cappadocia wouldn't have been nearly as rewarding without his help, and I am truly grateful to... More

On our first day in Goreme, Orhan the owner took us out to watch the most glorious sunset on a warm July evening. It was such a relaxing evening after the stress of work and was just the right start to our family holiday. Orhan personally fixed a brilliant Guvech for us. Ours was the cave room with an en...

Ufuk Pension is in a good position for the village of Goreme and also for the Open Air Museum. We arrived very early in the morning but we were able to check in and go to our room straight away. The room was clean and it was quite a novelty to be in a cave room. Although our room was... More

The hotel is reasonably centrally located. It is about a 5~10 minute walk from the otogar. Make sure you walk along the Muze Yolu uphills, and check on your right hand side a plaque pointing to the hotel entrance. Its current location in google map (as of May 2014) is WRONG and you might walk all the way to the... More

As said elsewhere already, location is great- just 2-3 houses down the corner of the short main strip. We had a triple cave room for 2 nights downstairs. It was bigger than we expected and very clean. The bathroom works well, with a spacious shower stall, thought the water needs a little time to warm up at first. Soap was... More

Ufuk is situated near the Goreme Open Air Musuem which is 1 km away. The standard room is pretty good for what it is worth. Breakfast is included and they serve you continental breakfast every morning. Everyone is quite friendly there. Wished the heater in the room was working though. It was quite cold in the morning and night during... More

The Ufuk guesthouse is basic but for around 15 € for a single it is value for money. Orhan and Furkan go over the top to be friendly and helpful to their guests. And I loved to have a cat, just like at home. I arrived late and it was a freaking cold night -10C. The small room upstairs was... More

Le camere e il bagno sono frugali e abbastanza pulite, ma il vero asso nella manica di questo posto è la terrazza, con una vista incredibile sui Camini delle Fate, davvero piacevole per consumare l'abbondante colazione al mattino o bere qualche drink al tramonto. La posizione non potrebbe essere più comoda: a 10 minuti a piedi dall'Open Air Museum e... More

We had hoped to stay in a dorm room but these don't exist anymore so we took a double room. The room was small but cozy with good heating and plenty of hot water which you need in March. There is a nice spot where you eat the decent breakfast or hang out in the evening. Staff were polite and... More
