This hotel was absoutely fabulous! We had a cave room and it was quaint and spacious and fantastic! The view was just unbelievable! The family that runs it was amazing. They were extremly helpful with helping us plan what to do during our stay in Cappadocia. The breakfast was a typical Turkish breakfast and highly enjoyed. I definitely recommend this... More

The rooms are very clean and the view at sunset on the roof is remarkable. Breakfast is also served on the terrace and it was so relaxing I spent... More

Arif hotel was quite wonderful. It is located at the top of the hill in Gorme and has a fantastic view of the town. Each morning, I woke up to an incredible and unequaled view of the hot air balloons to the east (no other hotel in Gorme has this view). The hotel gladly made arrangements for me - shuttle... More

Do not let the rough entry to Arif Cave Pension and hotel scare you off. The walk up the hill to this lovely family owned and run pension is well worth the effort. With 18 rooms there ıs something for every budget and taste. The rooftop terrace easily boasts the best view in town and it is a great place... More
