Stayed for two nights Mar.15-17. It is only the beginning of the season and the hotel was not extremely busy. We received undivided attention from the host, who not only provided us with valued assistance regarding directions and restaurants reservations, but also offered rides to get to nearby attractions. The breakfast was also excellent in terms of both the variety... More

My friend and I stayed in one of the cave rooms for three days in early November. The room was very warm and clean, but could be a little stuffy as there are are no windows. The bathroom was clean as well, but it took a while for the water to drain after using the shower. Also, the staff was... More

My friend and I had a wonderfrul four night stay in Goreme, due in no small part to the dedicated and delightful staff at the Elysees Farm Cave Hotel. Ege, the hotel manager, went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable at the hotel. In addition, he contacted several travel agents in Goreme for our transportation and travels... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Elysee Cave House. It is a pretty hotel with clean, charming cave rooms, and a spectacular view from the breakfast terrace. The hosts were very accommodating and friendly, giving us hiking advice and dropping us at the trail start. They also graciously allowed us to drink our own wine in their lounge. But they... More

We loved our 4-night stay at this hotel. Extremely informative, helpful and dedicated staff who manage the hotel and grounds with great care. The owner arranged transportation more than once for us. Views over Cappadocia/Gorem are the best; be sure to rise early enough to visit the rooftop terrace so you can watch the many hot air balloons fire up.... More

Before we even arrived, Cengiz sent us some emails offering tips. He also secured the car rental for us and booked our hot air balloon ride, and the airport shuttle. The hotel was quiet, but I suspect all of Goreme is quiet. The rooftop breakfast/patio area has exceptional views. There are plenty of outside sitting areas. Goreme is small so... More

Nice character, awesome terrace, and super helpful owner. Before my stay, Cengiz answered my questions via email, which was helpful. He arranges an airport shuttle, too, so it's very easy to get to the hotel. My original plans changed, so I asked to stay an extra night and Cengiz took care of that. The hotel is in a convenient location,... More

Hotel location was good. Staffs are nice but all the good thing of this hotel can't make up for how rude the owner is. We are 5 people stayed in this hotel on beginning of October 2014. After we booked this hotel with booking.com the owner send me an e-mail, greeting and offering us a balloon trip(130 euro) and day... More

Elyseegoreme, Owner at Elysee Cave House, responded to this review

I am very sorry you feel that way, actually you should be ashamed of yourself. We don't provide any services ourselves , we book them with outside agencies and certain terms and conditions apply. We trust our customers and for that reason don't require advance payment as most other agencies do. However, it is not possible to cancel any reservation... More

Just spent a night at Elysee and it was a great experience. The hotel has a number of very comfortable communal areas for sitting out and relaxing. Our room was very nicely decorated and comfortable with good mattresses. Our bathroom had a slight sewer odor, but we just kept the door closed and it was no problem. Very strong WiFi... More
