We were planning a balloon trip and my friend said to me, "Would consider sleeping in a cave?" and I thought...."has she ever met me, does she not know that 'The Hobbit' is an obsession"? and said "Of course I'll sleep in a cave!!!!". This was definitely one of those once in a lifetime adventures and staying here was key... More

We were only in Kappadocia for 2 nights so I chose somewhere reasonably cheap and wasn't expecting much, however this place was wonderful. Ahmet (Arif's son) is the manager who you should contact before you go and he knows everybody in and everything about Kappadocia! I didn't know before we went that he is the guy that all the hotels... More

The Arif Cave Hotel came very highly recommended online, but as we all know, what you see isn't always what you get..... In this case though, Arif Cave Hotel exceeded my expectations! It was absolutely amazing! We... More

Unique experience staying in a beautiful cave suite in superb location for views over valley and base for exploration. All the family are charming but as hotel manager Ahmet's calm, gentle humour, advice and help made it an unforgettable stay. Nothing is too much trouble. A very special host. The tours he booked for us with guide Ali were entertaining,... More
